Hi there and welcome

This is about the amount of time expected for the Kindle Voyager which you have.

If you though turn off wireless on the Kindle this is going to add a number of hours to its life (and can result in an additional 50% battery life)

Do you know how to disable wireless on the Kindle?

Please let me know
