even if you aren't using it - if the wireless on it is enabled, it is going to be seeking a signal and that will wear down the battery

You are making absolutely no sense. Are you ill?

The Fire should not need recharging every day if you aren't using it. I don't use mine often and yes, it does discharge even when not being used because it is connected to wi-fi, but I would say that it only requires charging maybe once a week under those circumstances. Is it possible you have an app engaged which is drawing power from it? Call customer service and see if they can solve your problem.

Teresa, if you aren't going to be using it, consider shutting it down, rather than just letting it sleep. Hold the power button in for a few seconds and you'll see the option. The lithium ion battery will still discharge, but much more slowly...while it is sleeping there are a number of things it can be doing, and as others have noted, the wi-fi is a particularly big consumer of battery charge.

I figured out that if I turn of the wireless when not using it, the battery lasts for day.

I'm a little bit confused by your comment. Is it supposed to be helpful in some way? I'm sorry, I just don't get it.

Yes I am....sorry

Of course you are. Nope, not at all intended to be something you'd find helpful but then, I don't feel obligated to help.

And you feel the need to come back almost two weeks after your post to make sure everyone knows we really should be feeling sorry for you. And then stick around to comment on current comments. "I figured it out" and one comment, apologizing for your incoherence and explaining it, would have been sufficient. The more you hang around and comment on others' comments, the more dubious your claims seem.

This forum has a long history of people making medication claims, serious illness claims, destitution claims and others, all to cover up alcohol and bipolar or other mental issues, not to mention propensities to just throw hissyfits when they feel offended.

An excuse for a behavior does not mean the behavior never occurred.

If you want people to accept you on the forums and you plan to continue to post here, your best bet is to not post unless you believe you are rational at the time. If you're a drive-by casual poster and don't plan to continue to visit the forums, then you won't care what you say, and we won't have to care what you say either. Got it?

I rest my case. Thank you for illustrating it so plainly.

Sweetie, if you're going to get THAT EXCITED about how well someone does his or her job, maybe you should be looking at your doctor. At the very least, consider hiring a good lawyer. Oh, wait. Don't tell me, you have a son or daughter who's a lawyer, dontcha, Lambypie?

I've read a fully charged Kindle Fire will last 11 hours: is that a good assumption? I'm trying to assess if my Kindle would cover a flight from Los Angeles to Amsterdam (more or less). It won't be on all the way over, but with turning it on and putting it into sleep mode, then on again later -- that will suck juice. So I'm wondering if it will make it -- or do I have to bring a book as backup?

I don't know if it'll last that long. You can experiment before your trip, I suppose.

I bought this when it was a daily deal, and it works well for me. Maybe you could look into something like it: Aluratek APB02F Dual USB 8,000 mAh External Battery Pack and Charger for iPod, iPhone, iPad, eReaders

If you keep your brightness level as low as possible, keep the Fire in airplane mode the entire time, and are using it primarily for reading, you may be able to stretch 11 hours out of it... but my guess is that it will be closer to 8-9 hours.

If you plan to use it where it is constantly sucking power (like games or watching video), you will see a marked decrease in your battery life.

Riiiight. You're the only one on the planet who's ever known chronic pain. Honey, you need drugs alright but not necessarily the ones you're on in the massive overdoses you're taking.
