Amazon 5-Foot USB Cable

We know your Kindle comes with a charging cable, but if you lose it, your Kindle ends up turning into an expensive paperweight. One easy way to prevent that from happening: a backup 5-foot USB charging cable. The 5-foot cable provides a decent amount of length to plug your Kindle into the wall and let it charge on your nightstand. The length will also come in handy for charging while reading your Kindle on an airplane. An extra charging cable is the Kindle accessory you totally forget about until you don’t have one.

2-Year Accident Protection for Kindle (10th Gen)

The way it works: when you need to replace your Kindle, call the number provided anytime –– they are available 365 days, 24 hours a day –– and your new Kindle will be shipped to you. Just ship your broken Kindle within 30 days of making a claim and you’ll be covered.
