Make sure you put the brightness lower.  That will help.  I'm not sure if it runs open apps or not.  It's not something I've come across.  I know iPads/iPhones runs open apps and takes up battery life and you have to close them out.

If you're not using the wifi then I would. It's the wifi that's draining the battery.

I've had the original kindle fire for a little over a year. Mine won't charge anymore, but I am wondering if it's the cord and not the actual Kindle. Cause if I push the cord a certain way then it'll charge. Lol.

My friend has had her less then a year and it will no longer charge. Kindles are known for these types of issues.

I've had mine for about a year. I don't have any problems charging or keeping a charge. If you are not using the Wifi, turn it off. And be sure to close out any web browsers or apps that you are not using.
