Check your GSam monitor right before the full charge starts.
I don't. I use my Kindle Fire for reading only. I know how long my battery lasts. There is no need to check anything. I read from 3AM to 6AM nightly. I only charge the Fire every four days when it finally hits 25% or below. It hard to get it to even that I have to leave WiFi on for a few hours sometimes to drain it. I can go over a week in standby if I don't use it but I am so addicted to the KF that only happened once or twice. I think the battery would last longer if I didn't have to clear the Kindle data app twice every charge to get the pdoc covers to show up.
I know that takes alot of battery.
