It's possible the Kindle Fire charger is proprietary and not actually microUSB. I know the Nook Color has this problem; its charger is slightly longer than a standard microUSB, so it won't work in other devices and the Nook won't charge with a standard microUSB.

Try other chargers, though. As long as it's a standard microUSB, it should charge the N4 just fine.
