My dad found a kindle fire a couple of weeks ago and so he gave it to me and it worked because it was charging perfectly fine but right now that i got it to charge it, it didn't charge and it uncharged and turned off an I have it charging right now and I turn it on and says 1% then turns off again I been having it charged for like an hour now and it doesn't charge at all and it was charging earlier but not right now again… :( what should I do? I can't return it cuz we found it and we don't have nothing… Help

The kindle fire need a special sort of charger and the normal mini USB chargers that you get with phones are not strong enough to charge the device properly.
You probably need a charger that's at least five amps or you could get a original kindle fire charger from eBay or amazon. Good luck.
