Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"I started having problems with it very shortly after purchasing, but by wiggling the cord that goes into the speaker around, I could make it work, then it took a trip off of the counter and the insert where the cord goes, fell out."

_
"I have not been able to find a replacement for the cable."
_
"Until the cable broke."
_
"It also has a decent length cord so if I use it elsewhere I can let more cord out to set it up."
_
"The speaker greatly enhances video and music listening- I use it in bed a lot and I wish the cord was a little longer, but it is a nice accessory for the Kindle Fire"
_
"It would also be nice to know if it can be recharged with the ac adapted cord that came with the Kindle Fire."
_
"The supplied cable is unique, good luck finding another should you loose or break it."
