I am a fan of Kindle.  I use it every day.  I bought my husband one, and he loves his, too.
But.  My cord cracked.  Then it disintegrated all around the crack.  I unplugged it and the other end had done the same thing.  I accused my husband of abusing the cable, but then I went online to buy another where I read a bunch of reviews from people who had the same problem.  I also read that if your phone cord will fit the kindle, it works.  I wasn't interested in buying another faulty cord.
I was disappointed that such a wonderful product had such a sorry cable.  Now it is old, but not old enough to have problems with the insulation on the cable.

  1. Mine is doing the same thing. You don't need to buy a kindle cord for it. You can go to any electronics department in a store, wal-mart even has them and ask for a Micro USB cable and that'll fit... and it's probably cheaper.

    (Helpful hint: If you find yourself at a hotel ask them for one at the front desk from the lost and found and sometimes they'll let you have one.)
