How do i optimize my battery life on my Kindle Fire HD - (aka - how low do i let my battery get before normal charging). I have no problem charging my battery. The Kindle is working superbly. Does keeping it in the Car in hot or cold weather going to be a problem??

To optimize your battery life, keep wireless turned off unless you're using it.

There are minimum and maximum operating temperatures for your Kindle. That info is usually found towards the end of your user's guide (preloaded on your Kindle). Personally, I would not leave my Kindle in a car regardless of the weather.

Edited for clarification.

K., in addition to what TAFKAB posted, I would recommend the following:

Get the free app Android Assistant and you can see if anything may be draining your battery. I had a problem with my Fire HD and used AA and another great app called Battery to find out that my Audiobook app was turning itself on unbidden and dragging my battery down in no time.

Battery HD is a great tool for managing your battery. You can even set it to announce vocally when the charge level you set has been reached, both for discharge and recharge. You can also set it to be quiet at night so it doesn't wake you up speaking to you about your battery.

Hope this helps.
