Yes. For any given type of connector, the pins are the same. You can use any cord that fits.

Won't reload on my ipad


Connect to wall outlet Uses the USB power adapter and USB cable included with the device. If it is a third-party accessory, check to see if it is Apple Certified . Then follow these steps:
  1. Connect the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the Lightning to USB connector cable or the 30-pin to USB connector cable .
  2. Connect it to one of three power sources:

Wall outlet

Connect the charging cable to a USB AC adapter and connect the USB AC adapter to the wall outlet.

Computer

Connect the charging cable to a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on a computer that is not in sleep mode. Do not use the USB ports on the keyboard.

Power supply

My Kindle fire won't move past the start up "kindle fire" screen. what is wrong and how do I fix it?


Hello

Reset the Device:
If your Kindle Fire won't move, this doesn't necessarily mean that it's "broken" or has a major problem. The Kindle Fire has a tendency to become "stuck," meaning that it looks like it's "off" when it's actually "on" but it will not work properly because it's locked up. To unlock the Kindle Fire, do a reset by holding down the power button for 20 seconds or more. Then turn the device back on by hitting the power button again. If this doesn't work the first time, try holding the button down for 30 seconds or more. Most of the time, this will be all you have to do to get the Kindle Fire up and working again.

Charge It:
If resetting doesn't work, it's possible that your battery is dead. Try plugging the Kindle Fire into the charger and wait about 15 minutes before trying to turn it on again. If the device refuses to start up, try resetting it again.
If it still won't move, it's possible that you have a dead charging cable. Alas, the cables that come with the Kindle Fire are not known for their longevity. Try charging the tablet with another cord that has a Micro USB connection and see if the device responds. There's no guarantee that the charging cord from your smartphone will work with the Kindle Fire, but it's worth a try. If you get a bit of a charge, then you'll know that your Kindle Fire needs a new charging cable.

Try a Different Power Source:
if the charging cable appears to be working but the tablet still won't move, try plugging it into a different power outlet or the USB port on your computer.
If all of these troubleshooting tips fail, your Kindle Fire may have a hardware problem that requires professional help.

Just purchased a Kindle Fire HD7. Start up instructions say to charge battery by plugging device into power adapter via USB cord. Is there another way to charge device since I have no plug which fits the...


An adapter should have come with your Kindle Fire HD7 when you purchased it. The USB 2.0 cord is universal, so you could plug it into your computer and charge it that way also (while the computer is on).

I am assuming that you checked to make sure you had all the parts. Included in the Box Fire HD 7 tablet, USB 2.0 cable, 5W power adapter, and Quick Start Guide

I think something is wrong with my kindle fire charger


I don't think its your charger. The charger port can get loose after time. This is a known issue with Kindle fire 1st generations. Kindle fire 2nd generations have issues with the battery itself. But the issue with the Kindle fire 1st generation is not the ac adapter. The micro usb port attached to the kindle breaks or becomes loose. Bad soldering is the issue.

Won't charge


Dear Tish,

If, as you say, the connection feels loose, maybe the micro-USB connector had been forced sideways by the cable and lifted up the printed circuit board pads where it was soldered. My daughter, running while playing, entangled her leg in my Kindle cable while it was charging and the same happened to my connector...

in this case, you will have to take your Kindlle to a repair technician and have the connector re-soldered to its printed circuit tracks, repairing them in case they are broken.

The following guide can help the person that is going to open your Kindle to repair it:

And if you search in YouTube for 'Kindle Fire USB charging problem', you will find that there are more than a thousand videos showing how to repair the power and signal connections.


Hope you may find this info helpful!

Kindle fire won't charge


You may need a new power cord or it is possible that your Kindle Fire's battery has died. If you noticed the battery life diminishing before it wouldn't charge this may be the case. Here is a site that has replacement batteries for the Kindle Fire:
