Customer Question

My kindle paperwhite serial number is ***** 1503 2523 OTOW. The charger I plug into the wall adapter does not seem to be available. What are the specifications for it. The one I have currently has a much longer end to plug into the kindle. The ones I see in stores are shorter.

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Charging can be done, by the way, through a USB cable attached to a USB port on your computer. I just wish to mention that in case the knowledge is useful. (Charging through a computer's USB port and a USB cable, is a bit slower than using a wall adapter, however.)

This charger for Kindle (available throug WalMart's website) :

has a longer end than others such as this perfectly standard one:

or others, much the same.

The first one, with the longer plug, is actually designed not just for the Kindle, but for other devices too - some of which may require the longer plug. So I think that explains the difference, and be assured, the shorter one is standard and is OK.
