My Kindle 2 is out for delivery. When it finally makes its way home for the first time, will I have to charge the puppy or does it come pre-charged?

I had to charge K1.  I'm assuming that will still be the case.  In fact, I think I read that somewhere. 
And welcome Mark.  Glad you're here.

According to the user's guide, it is supposed to com 50% charged, but the first thing you will see when you power it up is a screen instructing you to plug in the charger.

Figuring what the temperature is like over most of the country this time of year, I would plug it in anyway just on general principles. Most batteries do not like the cold.

As long as you are using the wall charger, you can still play with it while it charges.

Mine was 50% charged when it arrived an hour ago.

Then it froze on startup and I had to reset it.

All is well now.

I was wondering about the same thing. Most electronics seem to come partially charged.

Mine had a decent charge; I plugged it in right away and still have an amber light...any idea how long it takes to fully charge and get the green light?

Thanks :)

I've been poking around and have downloaded a few books, but my inner toddler wants to take it into the other room and curl up on the sofa. I probably have anohter hour before it's fully charged, though.
