“P.S.  Kindle Cust. Support refused to endorse another manufacturer's product so I got no help there”

That’s as it should be. They can’t test everything out there, and there are liability issues.

I wouldn’t recommend plugging anything into the charger port on the Kindle that doesn’t specifically say it works with the Kindle.

Lithium-ion/film batteries such as are in the Kindle require sophisticated chargers that can carefully monitor the charge process.  And because of their different shapes and sizes each type of Li-ion battery requires a charger designed to accommodate its particular size. This means lithium ion battery chargers are more expensive and more difficult to find than NiMH and NiCd battery chargers. (I stole this info from the Green Batteries site, heh).
