I just got a new Kindle Fire HD 8.9. I'm wondering if there is any way to add or change the charge indicator, in the upper right of the screen, to a percentage? Would like to do this without downloading another app, if possible.

No. You can go into device settings and view the battery charge percentage, however.

How do you so THAT?

Thanks. Does the Kindle give you a warning when the battery gets low?

The original Fire would warn at 15%. I haven't run down the new 8.9 that far yet.

Sheldon - I don't know if this free app is available for the 8.9" yet, but if it is, it's a great little app for monitoring your battery. It has a number of useful features.

- Full page state of charge display when the KFHD is connected to a charger.
- User configurable audio announcements of the state of the charge/discharge
- Precise state of charge notification via swiping down from the top of the device.
- Battery calibration tool that provides a long term estimate of total battery power for charging.
- Estimates of time remaining for various activities.

Battery HD is available, but it's not free -- $2.00.
