There is a setting on my Kindle Touch about enabling "Page Refresh". If turned on, the page will refresh every time you turn the page as oppose to every 6th turn page.

My question is, does it use more battery if this setting is turned on?

Yes, but I doubt you will notice the difference in the battery life. The Basic has the same option, and I like a total refresh each turn.

i'm noticing some slight ghosting (text from previous page are in the backgroun of the current page) in my kindle touch and turning this option fixes that. That is why I was curious whether this consumes a lot of battery or not.

I am curious about this topic as well John. I have a KT and I notice a little ghosting when the page refresh setting is turned off (only refreshes every 5 or 6 pages). So I keep it on. I imagine that it isn't to much of a detriment to the battery life seeing as other kindles refresh every page by default and advertise the same battery life as the kindle touch.

And, I left mine on so the page refreshes every five or six pages. I've seen no ghosting on my Kindle Basic.

(i'm i don't think my issues is relevant to this discussion, but what the hey)

Hi, i also have a kindle touch-i had it for less than a week now- my issue is that all of a sudden the pages keeps refreshing as opposed to refreshing every 5-6 pages. i've tried turning on, off the page refresh button, but the problem is still there. i understand that some people are not bothered by this, but i would really, really like for this page refreshing issues to stop on my device. I 'm not bothered by the ghosting and was very happy with my kindle until this happened and its taking the fun out of my reading :( I would really appreciate any help on this one.

When the page refresh is on, does it have the "off" showing? Thanks!

anything to drag up a 3 year old thread that has no correlation to what they are asking about!
