Kindle Fire, Full Color 7" Multi-touch Display, Wi-Fi Does anyone have an idea whether it's better, in terms of longer battery life, to keep the Kindle Fire battery fully charged with numerous small recharges or wait until the battery icon is down to around 20% and fully charge it then

I have a Kindle Fire, I love it. I used to keep it charged or plugged in while watching movies or on Face Book, BAD IDEA. I had it one year and it does not keep a charge anymore. It was completely my fault. I am told by several sources, and an IT Tech @ work, that the best option for any phone or tablet battery and to extend its life, wait until the battery completely dies down before charging. As soon as it is charged, unplug it. Do not charge overnight, etc... I learned my lesson.

If you want to extend the overall lifespan of a battery, don't let it drain all the way down too often if you can avoid it. Charging at 15-20% would be better.

I think you got bad info, sumgrv... I have an iPad, and I charge it every night, overnight, whether it needs it or not. No problems. I charge my Kindle readers whenever I feel like it, seldom more than 50% depleted. Not a single problem. Indeed, with these batteries, you should never let them drain completely -- bad for them.

I was told never to charge the Kindle Fire HD for more than 3 - 4 hours at a time, too. Some family members always leave their Kindle Fire HDs on the charger & are having trouble with battery life now. I only charged mine when it needed & rarely leave the charger on overnight; I don't have any problems with my Fire HD's battery my new HDX is another story. I'm trying to decide if it's faulty. The battery runs down quickly, even when it's not being used.
