When I try to charge my kindle via my laptop, it keeps flickering between the kindle and the 'charging' screen and reopening pages. Does anyone know why this might be? Thanks

Kindles require a certain amount of current to be able to charge, guessing the USB port you're using on your laptop doesn't put out enough power.

It is charging though.

It probably will, just taking a long long time...

Keeping the kindle connected by the cable, disconnect the kindle from the laptop through the laptop software. It will then be functional.

So I should invest in a PowerFast charger

I keep doing that but then it suddenly reads as being plugged back in for no reason.

Really any charger is going to be better than charging it off a laptop. If you've got an old one laying around use it. But yeah, a charger that puts out 2 amps or more will charge it faster.

I'm using one of these to charge my Kindle Fires..

AmazonBasics Wall Charger with USB Outlet (2.1 Amp Output)
