Charging time is faster for a Kindle Fire vs. my regular e-Ink Kindle charger, but since I haven't - and rarely - fully drain one of my Fires I cannot comment on the "faster" aspect for charging a Fire: I just know it works, and it does seem to charge my phone faster than the plug that came from Verizon. That’s not a shocker as this one is 9 watts vs. 5 for the “normal” charger.”
This is a replacement model to the original 9W PowerFast charger. Rather than the prior model’s square look this one is longer in a rectangular form and sticks out further from the socket. That seems to add more clutter to a wall socket. This year’s model also has rigid prongs (what you stick into the electrical socket) vs. the fold-down version of the prior model that gives it a lower profile. I didn’t think too much of it at first, but the longer profile of the rectangular design, in addition to the electrical prongs not folding down into the charger, means it takes up a little bit more room in my laptop bag. That’s not good for me as now it won’t fit in a side pocket for my brand of laptop bag and goes into the general pile of stuff that floats around in the main bag.
$19.99 seems to be a lot for an adapter of this power size, and it is: despite my comments on the changes above, the PowerFast chargers Amazon makes do seem to last. I’ve never had one break as other brands do, I just keep leaving them in random hotels and airports while traveling and have to buy another! If you are looking for a solid and longer-lasting charger for your tablet, I would recommend this one.
Returned it the very next day!
My husband's Nexus charger and the Belkin 10W charger (that he got to replace this charger) do a GREAT job charging my Kindle Fire 8.9 HDX!
This is a bit larger than the charger that comes with the Kindle Fire (at least the ones shipping mid/late 2017). It does not have a polarized plug. It is a shape that will take up only one slot on a surge protector or power strip, which is nice. Please note: this does not come with a cable. You can use the USB charging cable that came with your device, or you can buy a cable separately.
I don't run my Fire completely out of power, generally speaking, so I can't say how fast this would fill it up from 0%. However, from 20-30%, this took around 2 or 3 hours (give or take) for a full charge to come back, whereas the one that came with my device took overnight. So it *is* faster. I did not have any issues trying to use the Fire while this was plugged in to the wall. (Realizing that devices can change in quality over time, I will mention here that I am writing this review in early September of 2017.)
I do not have a bunch of electronic devices to try this out with. I have a Kindle Paperwhite (this worked fine with it) and the Kindle Fire, and that's it, although I note this has a simple USB port so theoretically any USB-charged device could be plugged into it. (You may want to check the technical specifications of your device first, just to be on the safe side.)
Anyway, in the end, this does what I needed it to.
