When in good working condition, a Kindle battery should provide more than 24 hours of use and will last in standby mode for weeks. If you fully charge your Kindle once or twice a week, you’ll likely never have to deal with a dead battery.
That said, there are times when your Kindle won’t charge after the battery is low. In most cases, you can bring it back to life with relative ease. That’s how.
What to do when your Kindle won’t charge
If your Kindle is displaying a low battery message or low battery icon, or if it is off its screen displays nothing, plug it into a power outlet and let it charge for at least half an hour before testing the device. again.
- In most cases, the Kindle will soon start working and charging again after this initial period which allows a completely discharged battery to come back to life.
If your Kindle still won’t charge, you should first test the power cord in another device and try plugging something else into the outlet to make sure the problem isn’t with any of these.
Try resetting your Kindle by holding the power button for at least 20 seconds. Turn it back on and see if it charges normally. If it still doesn’t charge, let it sit for about half an hour while it’s plugged in, then try resetting again.
