    carma42,
    From an Amazon product (Gomadic) looks like the Kindle1 charger is 1A not 2A. It might charge slower and risk heating up in the process. I don't doubt it working though.
    Who made your charger and what is the output current?

    Not sure. It came from ebay but it says 2 amp right on the charger and that was what I made sure of when I was looking on the listings. I had to email a couple seller s and ask until I found one. cheap cheap though and mine charges just as fast as the stock a/c charger. No heat.

    Anyone have any links for 2a car charger? I have searched ebay and find mostly 1a car chargers for kindle 1.

    Popeye, already have an inverter but would like a car charger since I have 3 MID7015As to power on long vacation drives for kids. Less wires if I don't have to plug into inverter so I'm trying to avoid that route if possible.

    Guess I don't understand exactly as three lighter plug adapters is a bunch of wires also. A short extension cord plugged into the inverter would be one wire with three or four outlets on the other end to plug regular chargers into. No? Again maybe I don't quite understand what you're trying to do.

    UPDATE: These satellite radio adapter pump out at least 1.5A at 5.2V id you're dead set on a lighter plug supply.

    Wanted to add for others who may be reading this thread: NEVER use a transformer type power supply with an inverter, both will more than likely fry along with whatever you have attached to the power supply. Kind of a 3 for 1 destruction deal.
    You can tell a transformer power supply because it doesn't say 'switching' on it and says 60hz only instead of 50/60hz, plus they are much heavier. Some folks may not be aware of this and would hate to see them smoke their Coby.

    The 10-in-1 USB cable might be worth it. The chargers are both only 1A, the Coby wants 2A. But that 10-in-1 might be usable with a stronger USB charger, like for an iPAD.

    I bought the one I mention in Post #12, it's 2.1Amp and has worked fine.
    I made by own cable for USB to Coby Power Pin
