Kindle Voyage battery issues

This post was last modified: 06 Dec 2018 11:32 AM by Robinmalhotra.
I purchased my Kindle Voyage two years ago tomorrow. When I first purchased it, after it had settled down with indexing and updating and downloading my library the battery would last two full weeks with moderate (2-3 hours per day) usage and WiFi turned on. Fast forward to now, I have to charge it every 2-3 days with the same usage and WiFi OFF. What are the chances I can change out the battery? Should I give up and start treating my Kindle the way I do my phone - put it on charge every night? downloader.vip/yify-yts putlocker.ooo omegle.onl


I'm frustrated to the point that I'm actually sitting here looking at the 9th gen Kindle sitting in my Amazon shopping cart because if I buy a new one I'm going whole hog the same way I did when I bought my Voyage - despite the fact that some people have issues with battery on the new one.

to be fair, two years of good battery life isn't bad, and a recharge every 3days isn't a terrible inconvenience, 
but to answer your question, yes I believe it's possible to buy, but not from Amazon, a battery and fit it with minimum toolstext abit of dexterity, try you tube for instructional vids.

you may also wish to consider the fact that a lot of battery " problems& are actually charger and lead problems, so buy yourself a new, reasonable quality short lead and plug in into a USB, on a computer or a tv or a stereo and give it a good long charge from that, I've brought a good few batteries back from the dead like that, batteries develop " stops" and will tell you they are full and stop charging, when they are nowhere near full,,  a USB charge will usually over come that and get it back to how it should be

, no guarantees  but worth a try before you shell out on a new one
