If the battery isn't too far gone, here's how to revive it: Plug the device into the Kindle A/C adapter (not your computer) and let it charge for a few hours. If you still see the same Critical Battery screen after charging, unplug the USB cord, then hold the power slide to the right for at least 20 seconds

I am asking if there is anything I can do to charge my Kindle...perhaps you can recommend the best car and electric chargers.

Hi Kathleen -

The Kindles I've seen all recharge off a standard USB type charger or from the USB port of a PC / Mac. The fastest charge will come from a 5VDC / 2.1 amp USB charge port on an AC (home) or DC (car) charger. There are some expensive types with "Quick Charge" or "Rapid Charge" technology that your Kindle will not be able to make use of - so skip those and save your money for the 5VDC / 2.1 amp USB types.

My Kindle will not charge

Here's a possibility, I just plugged in my Kindle Paperwhite using the Kindle charger and USB cable. It wouldn't charge.
I kept it plugged in all afternoon and it accepted no charge although it showed the little lightning bolt on the icon suggesting it was charging.

I unplugged the charger (it has two prongs) and reversed it so
the logo was on top and, Lo and Behold it charged. It could be the plug is not omniidirectional (i.e. it is polarized)

My kindle will not charge?

The Kindle Fire HD, if completely discharged, may take several hours to begin to accept a charge again. Simply leave it plugged in long enough and the on-board system will sort it out.

My kindle is not charging what can I do

You could replace the charger and or the cable. And if you have switched both, and it still won't charge, you have to face perhaps the kindle is defect. Or at least the connector.
To come to the right diagnose, you have to exclude every part. by establishing what part is correct and what part you don't trust till one is over.

Why wont my kindle hd charge?

It could be the charger itself. Try taking the USB cable out of the charger and plug it into your computer, then plug in the Kindle. Your computer's USB port should be able to charge it. If it still doesn't charge, you might have a bigger issue with the tablet itself.

How do you know when Kendle fire battery is dead

If this is a first generation Kindle Fire, then you are in good company, and the problem may not be the battery itself (which is good, b/c the battery is not user replaceable, at least for non-techies). Refusal to charge is apparently a very common problem, which seems to have multiple contributing factors. The charging port sometimes gets 'loose' or dirty, so I would suggest trying that first. Vacuum or blow out any dust/dirt, then look at it under a bright light and perhaps with a magnifying glass to see whether any portion is bent or twisted. If all looks OK, then I would try plugging it in and gently moving the cable around a bit to see whether the charge light goes on and off. If so, you might be able to still charge it by 'propping' the cable to gently nudge it in the direction that causes it to connect. This is a relatively short-term solution, as it will eventually stop working. Another problem seems to be in the 'programming' inside the Kindle, such that, under certain conditions, even with a good charger and cable, it will not take a charge. A common trick, when this seems to be the case, is to ensure that it has fully shut down before trying to charge. For some reason, if it is fully shut down, it is more likely to 'accept' a charge. Push the power button (with the charge cable unplugged) and hold it for at least 20 seconds. After that, it should be fully shut down. Then connect the cable and look for the orange light. If you get it, then leave it alone (verify it stays on when you lay it down, and 'prop' as needed) and preferably leave it to charge all day or all night, or until you see the charge light has turned green. If none of that is successful, and especially if you cannot get the charging light to come on no matter what you do, then try a new cable (cheap ones won't do) and/or a new charger. Borrow from a good friend for a cheap test. We just gave up on ours, after several months of nursing it along using various methods. It is a shame, because the device (except for weight and thickness) has been fantastic for my wife and then my daughter. I hope you manage to get a lot more time from yours!

Charging port is bent. Well not accept the charger to charge the kindle

My guess is that it is not the charging port..... but, the cord end. It might have been stepped on, or something. What you first might want to do before anything is try a different cord, unless you can see that the problem is definitely the charging port.

Her is a possible solution:

2. Lease the device plugged into the charger, while you have the device plugged into power, press the power button for a full 40 seconds, release. Wait for 5 seconds and then press and release the power button. Did the device wake up? No, continue to step 3.
3. Plug the device into another charger, if you do not have an charger from another phone go to Staples or Radio Shack pick up a new Kindle or Universal charger, make sure you can return the charger.
4. Plug the Kindle into the new or alternate charger. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds release. Let charge for 12 full hours.
5. Unplug the Kindle from the charger.
