Power adapter for Kindle Fire 2 gen

I live in Ukraine and I can not buy a power adapter 1.8 A. Can I use a power adapter with output 5V and 2A to charge Kindle Fire 2 gen? For example, which is used for the iPad? It is not harmful for the device or the battery? Or it's better to use the power adapter 1A? Thank you.

Voltage is okay, amperage is a bit higher than required (1.8A) but should still be okay. A 1amp, may not be enough to keep your Kindle charged, or if it does, it may take longer. Either way you should be okay. If anything I'd go lower and see. Hope this helps, good luck.

Thank you for your help. 2A charger charges my Kindle 2.5 hours. Does this not reduce battery life?

No, it does not. Luckily those are smart battery and have a circuitry that will help to regulate the charge. Thank you for accepting my answer.
