Is there a light or some way to tell when the kindle is charging or when fully charged?

Which Kindle, Erv? There are many models. Some have a light, some do not. If you have one of the new Fire HDs, they do not have a charge light. In that case, I would recommend this app:

Battery HD Pro

There is also a free version, but I like the capabilities of the Pro.

Turn it on, check, then turn it back off.

Francine - you can't tell. The only way to see if it is charging, and how far it is charged, is to turn it on and look at the battery indicator at the top right of the home page.

does it charge when turned off though. It is really a gift for my granddaughter that I am setting up. I need to be able to tell her everything she will bneed to know.

Yes, Francine. It charges when off or asleep.

The first thing you should show her is the user's manual, which is on there, somewhere (I don't have one, but I know it's there!). It will probably be helpful to her (and, as a matter of fact, to you).

I use Battery HD as it shows up on the screen.

It has other features like calibrate the battery which is great for the battery monitor software.

Actually the Fire does not have a Users Manual, it has a built in Help system instead. You can find it by swiping down from the top, tapping "More", then tapping "Help & Feedback".

Ah! Even better!

I think all the user manuals can be accessed through the Help and Feedback app.
It shows as a ? On a blue background.
