Does it come with a charger or should I buy one and which one? Thanks

It comes with a USB charger that connects to a port on a computer. Amazon sells a quick charger for $9.99 if purchased at the same time as the Fire. The quick charger will charge around 3x faster than the USB charger.

My new Kindle Fire 7 does not seem to hold a charge. I bought the fast charger and am disappointed it doesn't seem to charge for very long

Download the free "Battery HD" app and calibrate the battery. You'll be amazed at how long the battery will last you after you calibrate it. Follow the instructions which are very easy. The 3 phase tests take 1.5 hrs

Make sure to turnoff the screen timeout so your screen stays ON during the 1.5hr tests. Also turn off "app notifications" that also takes battery power.
