How to Replace Battery for Kindle eReader and Fire Tablet

Every digital device will face the battery issue, days ago I met a serious battery issue on my Kindle Paperwhite, which I didn’t use it for months.

This Kindle Paperwhite’s battery doesn’t hold for 3 days, even if I turn on the airplane mode, totally turn down the backlight. I tried every trick I learned in past years to save my battery life, but all going to fail.

Therefore, I guessed that my battery is literally dead. I can only replace the battery as I didn’t want to buy a new Kindle.
