How to Charge a Kindle

Amazon introduced the Kindle in November 2007. The device makes it possible to download and read any ebook, newspaper or magazine available in an electronic format. A Kindle can hold up to 35,000 ebooks. To get through all those pages, you need a fully charged battery.

Step

Attach the supplied USB cord to the Kindle. The USB port is located on the bottom on the Kindle.

Step

Attach the other end of the USB cord to the power adapter. Not all Kindles come with a supplied power adapter. If your Kindle does not have a power adapter, the USB cord can be directly connected to a computer to charge.

Step

Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. A charge indicator light is located on the bottom of the Kindle. When the Kindle is connected to a power source, and is not fully charged, the light will be yellow. When the Kindle is fully charged, the light will turn green.
