Kindle Fire HD charging issues

Hey guys,

I have just purchased a kindle fire HD refurbished and I am running into an issue quite quickly.
I am not able to use my kindle while charging at all without the battery percentage going down.

From some time googling I have not found anyone else with the same problem as me so I am assuming this is a defect? I have tried a different cable (phone one) and different chargers (iphone one and blackberry) and the result is the same with all of them.

I have managed to download and install a Battery Monitor which is telling me that my Kindle is charging only by about 60Ma when plugged in and idle (screen on obviously).
This, again, does not sound right.

Can anyone please let me know if this behavior is normal or if I should consider returning this tablet instead?

Thank you in advance, much appreciated.

Why not give exactly the same facts to the company that sold you the refurbished product and ask them what they suggest? I presume they will either give an alternative unit or a refund.

Thanks for the reply, I have just sent a message to the company that sold the Kindle to me and I am awaiting their reply.
Can any Kindle fire HD owners shed more light onto whether this is normal or not please?

Thank you,

I have the same problem. I have contacted customer service and looked for other people with the same thing. No one can help me. If you find out how to fix it, can you tell me?

What type of charger are you using - the official Amazon one or a 3rd party?
I only had that problem with one of my chargers, the others were fine.
