Very cool, Diat - I love it.

Aha - I have managed to track down the previous owner and told her I was having a problem with recharging and guess what? She looked in her drawer and said - oops, I have just found a charger with Amazon printed on it. She she has in fact given me a phone charger by mistake.

Aha - maybe it will help to have the right charger! I'm not certain though - if it charges up then doesn't hold the charge, that's more likely either the battery not holding the charge or the unit itself squandering energy rather than a problem with the charger. My wife's kindle charges ok from a phone charger and vice versa - it's a standard USB power connection.

Ah, I did wonder about whether you could also use a phone charger, Phlebas - I am going to collect the Amazon charger today.

Well, I have been using the Kindle for a week now, and the new charger seems to be working - Kindle is now holding its charge :cheers:

Woo hoo! I forgot to say that I use a phone charger for my Kindle too. Maybe it hadn't been charged up in a long time and it just took awhile for it to get fully charged.

Yes, you are probably right - the Kindle had been packed away for quite some time, I am told.
