Don't, I repeat, don't charge your Kindle Fire by plugging the usb cable into your computer. It's a trickle charge and will take overnight or longer. Use a usb charger plugged into the wall.It'll be much faster.

Secondly, after plugging your Kindle Fire in, check to see if it's on. Often, my Kindle Fire will power on after plugging it into the charger, so that defeats the purpose of charging. Turn it completely off, and don't just leave it in sleep mode. It's like filling a bathtub with the stopper open.

I know, it takes forever right? Some tips to make this go way faster are to:
• Make sure to turn off your kindle while recharging,
• Make sure the Wifi is on "OFF"
• Have wifi off whenever it's not being used.

Also, once I realized My kindle hadn't been recharging so i got panicked. Then i noticed the USB wasn't 100% in my computer.

While following all these tips above, The kindle will recharge in up to 6 hours! So ignore the answer below.

Hold down the power button for 30 seconds then release and hit the power button again. It should begin charging.
