I have a Kindle 2nd Gen and wanted to replace the battery since the original battery is not lasting very long on a charge.

I ordered a new battery, one made by a company called Cameron-Sino, and it will not charge. The charge light goes on for a few seconds and goes off. Thinking I had a dud, I got a refund and ordered another battery from a different vendor. It turned out to be from the same manufacturer, Cameron-Sino, and also will not charge.

The original battery still charges fine with the yellow LED turning green when it is up to full charge.

Has anyone else had the problem with replacement batteries? I don't know what to do.

I replaced the battery on one of my Paperwhite's a year ago and the replacement battery wasn't any better than the old one. It had to be charged every day. I got a cheap battery from Ebay instead of getting what I've been told is a reliable battery from Newpower99. I've never actually used one of their batteries but I've been told they're good.

Here's a link to the battery for the 2nd generation Kindle:

Thanks for the info Barry. One of the "new" batteries I ordered was from newpower99 and it's on its way back for a refund, as my experience was the same as you described. I can't believe they are simply shipping out old batteries since nobody would be satisfied with them and they'd all come back for refunds...but you never know!

Others advised me to buy a new $99 Kindle that is the current version of my old one. It's crazy to have to buy a new unit for the lack of the darn battery for an old one, but that might be Amazon's thinking in not supplying replacement batteries. I didn't see any alternative...so a new Kindle is on order.
