Tablets are just as common as smartphones at this point, and just like phones, choosing the right tablet can be difficult because you want to have one that is powerful and capable of doing all the things you want it to do. Most consumers go for Apple’s iPad and for good reasons, too, as the iPad has some of the most high-end specs, or others may go for the Samsung’s Tab S7. However, one of the most purchased tablets on the market comes from Amazon, which would be their Amazon Fire HD 8 and HD 10 tablets.
Both of these Amazon Fire HD tablets are Android tablets, and they are the most budget-friendly tablets that you can purchase on the market. They may not have the best specs, but they deliver just enough that most people will be satisfied or even surprised with what the Fire HD tablets are capable of, especially for the Fire HD 10 with its use of a P60T processor that makes for faster performance.
Generally, these tablets are made for frequent use, whether for work or for kids who want to have their own tablet for entertainment. Since these are convenient to use often, the battery drains fast, especially if you’re using high screen brightness and power-intensive apps, which is likely because there are Fire HD Kids Edition tablets that are basically the same as the base models for children that often to use the tablet.
Fortunately, along with the mid-tier specs, the Fire HD tablets are fast charging compatible via USB-C Power Delivery. We’re covering chargers to use for the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 Amazon tablets in this guide.
The best part of the fast charging for the Fire HD tablet is that you don’t need a mighty charger to get it to fast charge, as fast charging for these tablets can be done at 18W. You can use a more powerful USB-C Power Delivery charger to fast charge the tablet, but it won’t charge it faster, and it will not harm the tablet.
