Kindle 4 NT battery advice needed

I wanted to get "low battery" on my Kindle 4 NT because I heard it'll help it display what's left of the battery more accurately if I let it run low at least once.
It's halfway down right now, it was almost at 30% but I had to plug it again today to put some books on it.

I've had the Kindle for just under a month and I think I read 6 books so far.

Should I use it for the next few days without plugging it in?

What I do with my Kindle NT is plug it in when the indicator is near the low end. I don't care much about the accuracy, when it says low, I fill'er up. No problems so far.

I always run mine down all the way. When I get the battery warning popping up, it's time to recharge I don't know how that affects the accuracy of the battery life / battery icon, but I tend to get 2-3 weeks out of a charge when I do quite a bit of daily reading.

Same here just wait for the battery message then charge it. I do this on all my Kindles on my K4s I get 14 days with WiFi off.

You get the low battery warning at 15%, I believe.

Thank you very much for the information. I'm halfway through my 7th book and the battery is at 30% or so again. I'll do what you all said and wait for the "low battery" warning. I hope it comes quickly because I need to put new books and articles on the Kindle.

If you want to download the books, charge the Kindle. I believe you are making too much of this. It will do no harm if you don't wait for the indicator.
