Did you keep your Kindle device aside as you took a break from reading? Or have you been charging it from an incompatible source all this time? In such cases Kindle devices can have critical battery errors or won’t stay charged, which adds to user frustration when they wish to read something. Let’s resolve these errors in a few easy steps. Have a look.

Kindle Battery Won’t Stay Charged?

Here is what you need to do.

  1. Once done reading, put your device in sleep mode. By putting your device into sleep you conserve a significant amount of battery life- simply press the Power button to do so.
  2. Disconnect from wireless connections or Data networks. You can turn it off from Menu icon, to settings and click On in front of Airplane mode.
  3. Charge your device with compatible power adapters only. Charging with other power sources of USB cables doesn’t support some versions and this could be the reason that device doesn’t stay charged.
  4. After 6 hours disconnect the power source and restart the device. Press the power button for about 7-10 seconds and select Restart from the Power dialogue box.
  5. Confirm that your device is charging by plugging it back to the compatible power and see if it is charging.
