Who knew shopping for a new USB device charger could be such a hassle? Reliable USB charging cables are cheap and plentiful, but when you need the charging adapter that plugs into the wall it can be an hours-long project to find one that’s reasonably priced, reliable, well-reviewed, and doesn’t have numerous complaints of dying or catching fire (!) within the first weeks of use. The Amazon 9W PowerFast Official OEM USB Charger and Power Adapter (UK site visitors, click here) is among the more expensive adapter blocks out there, and it doesn’t come with a cable. But I’ve been using the Amazon chargers that came with my various Amazon devices for years without any problems in performance or safety, so this is probably one case where it’s a mistake to try and shave a few bucks off the price. Note that while the title of this product specifies it’s for use with specific Amazon products, it works with any USB-charging device.
