DIY Kindle 1 USB Charger

While researching Kindle USB chargers I found these instructions by Alan from SnarkyBytes.com on building your own USB charger cable for Kindle 1. To make one yourself you’ll need:

  • Some basic tools and skills to use them (don’t try this if you don’t know what are you doing;
  • “A” tip and pigtail for it (available from RadioShack)
  • USB cable that will be converted into charger (any USB cable that you can spare will do)
  • Optionally, a shrink-tube if you want it to look neat.

In the end you’ll have a cable that can be used to charge your Kindle1 from any PC or Mac with USB port or any other universal USB power adapters available on the market. Please use these instructions at your own risk.
