Choosing Our Next Giveaway Prize

It's been a couple days since we gave away a Kindle Fire (which will be out in the mail any day now), and we're already feeling the itch to give something else away. We were hoping there'd be a new Kindle by now (Come on, Amazon!), but it looks like we're not there yet. So we need your help figuring out the prize of our next Big Giveaway!

We've listed a few popular options, but we want to know what you want! What's going to keep you coming back to visit us? What's going to be fun to talk about and share? Our goal is to be the most useful Kindle/Kindle Fire site around. What's going to help us get there with you? Thanks for giving us your opinion in the poll and the comments below. We'll also include a little bit about the possibilities we've listed!

What should be the prize for our next Big Giveaway?

The Kingston Wi-Drive
We first started talking about using these to expand storage space for the Fire way back in November. They stream content from a small external drive over WiFi, allowing you to carry several times the amount of data than the Fire alone allows. Perfect for trips. There are a couple different versions, but the best and most affordable is the Kingston Wi-Drive 32 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive. Don't forget to download the corresponding app HERE.
New Trent External Battery Chargers
If you want the ability to charge your Kindle Fire on the go without worrying about plugs, an external battery charger is the way to go, and the New Trent iCruiser IMP1000 is the best choice you can make. Not only does it recharge the Fire, it can recharge virtually every mobile electronic device out there! Just make sure you have a USB cable, like the one from Oriongadgets.


A Readerdock Firestation
We gave one of these away last month, and it was something a lot of people really wanted. We're still waiting for pre-orders and the chance to get one of these for ourselves, but that doesn't mean we couldn't give another one away! The Firestation has an adjustable arm, built-in speakers, and it recharges your device as well.

All of these are great devices that we'd be happy to put into your hands. Or if there's something else everyone wants, we could go for that too. Thanks to everyone for being part of the Kindle Fire Department community! We're very lucky to have you!

  2. How about a tether station? I don't like the fact that I have to find a wifi station and AT&T is trying to charge me $50 a month to tether. Just a suggestion... :)

    1. Do you mean a wireless MiFi card or something else? I don't really think we could give something away that would stick the winner with a monthly fee. Good idea though.

    2. Why can't there be something that wouldn't charge? :P Wish the Fire had 3G then. How about that instead?!?!?! ;-)
      That's the only thing that I'm bummed about with the Fire. You can only access the internet via WiFi and sometimes I'm nowhere near it.

    3. Yeah, those MiFi cards are really the only solution, but a lot of people are really glad to have them.

  8. My New Trent is great and charges all of my Kindles. I have three and my wife has two. Always somewhere that i need a charge. The Trent has been great.

  9. I'm torn; I want them all! But . . . I'll go for the New Trent charger, as I'm using my KFire so much that I'm also having to recharge all the time -- and I've read from commenters that the New Trent recharges faster than does plugging into a standard outlet (in a home wall).

  10. I think all three of the main suggestions look great--I'd be happy to win any of them. The MiFi sounds cool, too. Just returned from a conference that had free (but very spotty) WiFi, and I think that pre-paid MiFi would've come in real handy.
    Whatever you choose would be great--pick me! =D
