Kindle Fire battery not charging.
Remember: Only charge your Kindle Fire using the power adapter that came with your device. The power from a USB port on your computer is insufficient to fully charge your Kindle Fire.
Official Amazon 9W, 1.8A adapter charges Kindle Fire HD 8.9" in under 5 hours, Kindle Fire HD 7" in under 4 hours, and Kindle Fire in under 3 hours
Optimized for Kindle tablets: PowerFast is a 9W charger and will charge your Kindle tablets faster than the white 5W Kindle charger will. (Note Kindle e-readers will charge at the same rate regardless of if you use a 5W or 9W charger)
Designed for use with the black micro USB cable included with the new Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD devices.
It seems 299.00 for a new kindle fire does not include the charger needed.UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
