Where can i get the battery replaced for my Kindle touch (7th Generation) It only holds its charge for 2hrs - I live in Devon
Generally the answer is that Kindles (and Fires) have no replaceable parts - including battery.
You can Google or Bing or other Web Search Engine for "kindle battery repair" and see if anyone can offer you the service you require - but generally the cost will be roughly the same as a new device and the warranty will just be for the battery.
Personally I would hope that there is nothing wrong with the battery. There are often TWO things going on that could be the reason for the problem:
1 - You have a corrupted book trying to be downloaded - this will eat battery;
2 - You have a corrupted book(s) downloaded onto your kindle and the kindle is trying to INDEX them and fails - this will eat battery.
One simple test - on the home menu page use the search featur on your device - look for something silly like "dsjhkjhkjdf"
You SHOULD get "no results found".
If you get "no results found - 5 books not indexed" you have 5 books jamming your device up. If I remember right simple tap that message to get a list of the 5 books not indexed and select Delete From Device.
Download them again one at a time from your account. All should be fine.
Every 6 months your Kindle indexes every book on your device - it takes about 1 minute per book (roughly) If you have 3 books on your device that's 3 minutes. If you have downloaded 999 books that's ... well a lot of minutes. Indexing is automatic and you can not stop it.
If you do have a million books on your kindle I would suggest restoring factory defaults to remove everything off the kindle and then logging onto your wifi, onto your amazon account and just downloading a few books at a time.
Either of the above may well cure your kindle of any and all faults and is totally free - so worth trying before doing anything else.
You can download the FREE kindle app to your phone, other tablet, pc, laptop or Mac for free and carry on reading your books for free whilst you decide what is the best thing to do.
(Personally I do recommend the basic Fire Tablet - It's cheap, performs well, works well indoors and does other thing like "read" your books aloud to you.

I wonder why someone would follow their own alternative forum profile.
Further to CW’s excellent advice, when your device indexes leave it alone until it has finished. If the process is interupted it usually starts from scratch again and will munch through the battery in short shrift. If in doubt leave it alone for 24 hours
