How to Replace a Kindle Battery

The Kindle is a wireless reading device, or e-reader, that lets you carry your entire library in a small package that weighs just over 10 ounces. There are more than 350,000 titles available for purchase that can be downloaded to your device in about a minute without the need for external computers or cables. The Kindle's battery life is long, except when the text-to-speech feature is used frequently, in which the device reads the book to you. The battery can be replaced in about five minutes.
