Solved: Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 Won't Charge All The Way

I do believe in an emergency she would save her Kindle first
The missus was very happy to get her Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 for Christmas this year. But a few days later she came to me with it and said she might have to return it because she couldn't get it to charge past 81%. My first thought was to take the battery out, but that's not possible with this model. The next idea was to do a reset and that worked!

These days even a simple battery has a computer, and being a computer, sometimes it can glitch. Either way, something inside the Kindle has a glitch with charging the battery, and resetting it fixes the problem. I bet they'll do a firmware update at some point which addresses this issue. In the mean time, the missus hasn't had any problems charging her HDX since having to reset it.
