    Full battery charge not 100%?

    Can others confirm what their battery percentage shows after a full charge? (Settings > Device) Mine has been fully charged for some time (green light) but will not advance beyond "94% battery remaining." Just wondering if I have a faulty battery.

    Are you using a USB charger or the power adapter that came with the Kindle Fire? I ran into a similar issue with my Droid Bionic and it turned out that I was using a USB charger from a different device that wasn't supplying enough juice. I changed to the factory charger and problem went away.

    Factory OEM charger. Always.

    The only other thing I can think of is that sometimes you need to completely drain the battery down to 0% and then do a recharge. This can sometimes train the battery.

    That used to be the case with Ni-Cad or Ni-Hydroxide but I didn't think it would help much with a Lithium-Ion. Good news is I unplugged it, did a reboot, powered off, then plugged in and it seemed to like that. It now shows 100% - but it took an unusually long time.

    I'm going to try those steps because I show 96% after a full charge.

    I will try to test this for you today. You could try powering off the Kindle and charge to green, a bump charge.

    I do have to say that I think the Kindle has really great battery life do far. I am comparing to a Vizio and I would say the Fire is getting almost double life that the Vizio is getting.
