Kindle is a smart device launched by Amazon to make it easier for users to download and read e-books from the Amazon library. If you like to read books often, then it is the perfect device for you.

The battery timing is quite good and you can use a lot of features to make your reading sessions easier. As compared to your traditional books, it is quite easy to carry and you can store a lot of books to read in your spare time.

In this article, we will be going over what the orange LED indicator means when you’re trying to charge your Amazon Kindle.

Kindle Charging Light Orange

Whenever you plug the power cord into your Amazon kindle the LED indicator will light up along with the Bolt symbol next to your battery icon on the screen. The main purpose of this LED indicator is to let users know about the current battery charging status. It can be green or orange depending upon the current battery levels. If the battery is fully charged then the LED indicator will be green and you can just take out the power cord.

The orange LED indicator shows that the device is still charging and the battery has not yet fully charged. So, as long as the LED indicator is on orange you should just let the kindle keep charging. The orange light will change to green after a few hours when the kindle has fully charged. This can be quite useful as you’re able to determine whether the Kindle is fully charged or not without looking at the battery status on the screen.

So, there is no need to worry about the orange light on the bottom of your screen whenever you plug in the power cord. It is not there to notify errors but rather it just indicates that the battery has not fully charged yet and you should keep the power cord plugged in until the LED indicator turns green. It can take quite a bit of time for the Kindle to get charged 100% so you might have to wait a few hours after plugging in the power cord.

The standard charging time is around 4 hours for the Kindle to get 100% charged. So, you will keep seeing the orange indicator for these 4 hours. There is no need to worry about it and all you have to do is wait for the indicator to turn green.

Kindle Not Charging

However, if you notice that the LED indicator has been orange for more than 6 hours then it is likely that there is something wrong with the Kindle and you need to contact Amazon Support and ask for their help.

Your Kindle should not be taking more than 5 hours to charge, so either there is something wrong with the charging port or the battery itself which is why it is not charging at the preferred rate. To fix this, open a support ticket on Amazon forums and try out different troubleshooting methods that the support team members recommend.
