Can anyone tell me what battery to buy for this kindle? Mine seems to be losing power and it must be time for a new one. I'm not sure what to buy. Can anyone supply a link for me on what to buy?

Thanks.

We don't know which Kindle you mean. If it's under warranty, you should contact customer service.

I think it is a square one.

I put up the question on the product page but I guess the questions don't pertain to that page. I will put up a link here:
Kindle, 6" E Ink Display, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation - 5th)

It's just the basic kindle reader......Thanks and sorry about that.

That should not need a battery yet. It's not meant to be user-replaceable anyway. Even if it's out-of-warranty, you should contact customer service to troubleshoot whatever is going on because it's probably not the battery.

The battery on that Kindle is not replaceable, as it is glued in.

Ok, thanks. It's moving slowly from one page to the other and it used to move like lightening. It doesn't seem to be in a hurry, even when it is fully charged. Perhaps it's the heat?

Do you have a lot of books on there? Sometimes that can slow things down.

I have 56 books and about 20 blog articles at any given time.

My guess is a blog article file is corrupted.

Perhaps there's a book stuck indexing. On the home page, type a nonsense word such as xyxy. It will display a message that no matches were found (since that word should be in any of your books). Wait a few minutes to see if any unindexed books list. If any of them do show up, delete them from the Kindle and redownload them, one at a time, leaving enough time for the book to index before downloading another one.

Oh crap ! I suppose there's no way to tell which one. Should I delete all the blog articles or will that not solve the problem?

Thank you Artist, I will do that !

Check for the indexing stuckage first. Also, if you're leaving wi-fi on a lot of the time, that's a big battery drain.

Well, the index stuckage does not seem to be the problem. It is hot here and humid the past couple months for monsoon, and to be honest that is when it started to slow up on me. Thanks for that info Gata, we will be going down in temps (48* in the morning( starting on the 10th so I will make sure to pay attention at that time. I always have the wifi on as I'm always sending articles to my Kindle every day, I never even turn the wifi off, Dittie. I was unaware that this would have been bad for the battery. Thanks for that.

At least you ruled out one thing. The others could be a combination of some or all of them. Once it's been indoors and out of the direct hot sun for a few hours, that part of it should resolve itself.

tee hee...I like the word "stuckage!"
