Kindle Fire HD 16GB 7” Tablet (Refurbished)
Originally designed as an e-reader, the Kindle Fire HD has evolved into the do-everything media device. You can watch TV and movies, surf the internet, and still read your favorite books and magazines.
Dual-Band WiFi Connection
The Kindle Fire HD was the first tablet to have two ways to connect to WiFi (2.4GHz and 5.0GHz). As more and more devices rely on wireless connectivity, the 2.4GHz band gets slowed down, so having the 5.0 GHz option allows the tablet to pick whichever network will be faster and gives you faster internet speed.
Google Play: Apps, Entertainment, and More
The official online marketplace for Android devices, Google Play brims with well over a million downloadable apps, as well as songs, movies, TV shows, and e-books. It also offers content for customizing your device’s functionality, from virtual keyboards to lock screens.

The product, though refurbished, has a defective charging port. The product also does not stay on when less than 50% charge. As soon as it is near the 50% battery level, sometimes even greater than that, it shuts off. However, the biggest problem is indeed the charging port. The charger has to be inserted and wiggled in place, almost perfectly, to connect and charge - yet if moved in any direction, the device will simply shut down as a result. Very, very frustrating!
I purchased the tablet for my nine-year-old son last June, but I didn't give it to him until the end of July for his birthday. About two months ago, it started being difficult to charge. After only four months of use, it quit working entirely. The tablet had a 90-day warranty.
I got this tablet with the intentions of giving as a gift and I'm super glad I didn't. The tablet shuts down it's at 60% battery and when you go and try to turn it back on it won't unless you plug it in. Thought it was a setting so we changed everything and still it shuts down.
