    Its a simple USB charger isn't it?
    I'm sure you have another somewhere and Amazon will send you a new one straight away.

      Yeah I got my daughter one for Christmas. Charger is probably still in the box since I used my phone charger all the time. I bought mine from Argos so I probably have to bring it back there.

        Let me guess, do they burst into flames?
        My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

          I bought 2 direct from amazon in the black friday sales when they were a crazy 35, took 10 minutes to side load play store and get rid of the advertising. Just checked the chargers which are still in the box, serial numbers don't match. I did read that amazon will e-mail you if you are affected so it does not look like they are all affected. I'll just take the 12 if they do offer a replacement.

            Never even used mine to the point of not even remembering it came with one

            After a bit of digging found it and its got the right model number. I think ill be taking that 12.

              Do you guys just charge yours from the computer then? It's painfully slow to charge from the PC but it doesnt matter to me as for my application i can leave it connected.

                    Double post-

                    Finally got a bubble envelope in the mail yesterday, with pretty much "insert your old adapter and mail it back to us free of charge"

                    .... It doesn't have a address, prepay stamp or anything, just a plain white envelope.

                      Sounds a bit rubbish.

                      Surprised tbh, I've had to return a couple of Kindle (e-ink models) in the past and found that they were generally very good with supporting their own products (other products is a different story, generally they try very hard to push you to the manufacturer if it's more than 3 months after purchase).

                        You should be able to go on your Amazon account and print off a returns label.
