I’ve been using these with great success as dedicated HR tablets! I have the HD10 wall mounted in my kitchen and have two HD8s that sit on stands in other rooms. Battery life is tremendous even though I modded them to always keep the screen on (no signs of image retention either).
I used table stands like these- Link
These aren’t the exact cables I used, but these cables have magnetic tips that make it much better for picking up and returning to the stand (bonus is the led helps you find the plug in the dark) - Link
For my wall mount tablet I used this plug LINK soldered to a 22awg wire fished down the wall to a plug in the basement. (you need to be good with a soldering iron!) I used double faced tape to hold the tablet up.
Other Notes: These are ad supported tablets. What this means is there are adds at the lock-screen. It could be annoying and I hate amazon as a company for this BS. Since I used adbLink to disable the screen from shutting off, I do not see the lock screen. I see nothing other than HR goodness. The added benefit is these can replace an Alexa device.
Thought I’d share. Feel free to discuss anything (tips/tricks/hacks) about the fire tablets here…
