Kindle Charging Behavior
It's been so long since I last charged my Kindle, and so few times before that, that I've forgotten how it should act. :-)
I was down to a low charge... didn't get a warning or anything, though I did turn on WiFi to download a purchase last night and the battery indicator then had an exclamation point on it, which went away when I turned off the radio.
So, I charged all night... put it on the charger at around midnight and took if off at around 7:15, so it had a little over 7 hours to charge, but the light was still orange. Should I be concerned? Shouldn't it have reached full charge in that amount of time?

I've had mine go from green, to orange to green again. I can't remember if wifi was on at the time, but I don't think it was. I don't know why it goes back to orange but I think it should be fully charged after being plugged in all night.

Yes I've also experienced that 'traffic light' behaviour when charging over several hours: orange to green, back to orange then finally green again. Weird!

Count me in with the orange to green, to orange, to green behaviour after a long charging session. Still, despite all this, it seems charged up.
