Amazon’s 10th generation
Compared to other Amazon devices, like the Basic Kindle and Kindle Fire, the Paperwhite makes enjoyable reading a priority. It wasn’t made for watching Netflix or scrolling through Facebook. It was designed to deliver the most comfortable reading experience possible. The device achieves this through its flush front design and a 300 ppi glare-free display. This advanced feature allows you to read the paper-like screen even in the brightest sunlight without a problem.
You’ll also be impressed by the battery life, which can keep you reading for weeks on end on only a single charge. Plus, this generation of devices are waterproof, meaning there’s no cause for alarm when you’re reading by the pool, caught in the rain or the device slips from your hand in the bath. There’s 8GB of internal memory and for those times when you feel like sitting back and having a book read to you, the Paperwhite is Audible-capable and includes Bluetooth technology for wireless connectivity. Nighttime reading is also covered by the handy, built-in, adjustable light.
To give your Kindle Paperwhite some added protection and an individual appearance, we’ve put together a selection of the best cases available. From the ever-popular Amazon brand option to full leather cases, there really is a case for every taste.
1. All-New Kindle Paperwhite Water-Safe Fabric Cover
When it comes to choosing a case for any of your Amazon devices, Amazon’s own brand options are always worth checking out. In the case of this charcoal black, marine blue and canary yellow.
2. OMOTON Kindle Paperwhite Case
3. Infiland Kindle Paperwhite 2018 Case
4. MoKo Case Premium Vertical Flip Cover
BEST STAND OPTION
5. Ayotu Magic Book Series Case
BEST DECORATIVE COVER
If you’re looking for a case with a unique appearance for easy identification, the
6. Fintie Stand Case

7. All-New Kindle Paperwhite Premium Leather Cover
For anyone who wants their Paperwhite device to stand out from the crowd, the
8. NuPro Anti-Glare Screen Protector
BEST SCREEN PROTECTOR
Okay, fine. So maybe this is less of a case and more of a “just in case,” but either way it comes in handy. This anti-glare screen protector does more than ensure you’re able to read on the beach. It will help protect the touch screen on your Kindle from smudges and scratches, which if you’ve ever tried reading at the beach, are all too familiar with. What we especially like about this screen protector though is that it’s easy to put on and take off, and it adds no weight to the device. Pair it with your favorite case and your Kindle Paperwhite is about as sturdy as it can ever be.
9. MoKo Standing Origami Case
BEST ORIGAMI CASE
The great thing about an origami case is that you can utilize a stand without the usual bulk that comes with a traditional stand case. The origami case uses magnets and clever folds to help you position your Paperwhite in whatever orientation you see fit. And while you can’t take advantage of landscape mode (like you could with a Kindle Fire, for instance), the ability to use a stand without the added weight is a huge plus.
The origami case comes in several colors and patterns, but we’re partial to the Indigo (shown here).
10. MoKo Felt Sleeve
If transportation is your primary reason for a case, consider opting for this handsome felt sleeve case from MoKo. Though maybe not as robust as some of the hard-shell cases featured on our list, this felt sleeve is without a doubt one of the better-looking options we have. Likewise, the lack of any hard corners will ensure your Paperwhite is scratch-free throughout the duration of your journey. Finally, the sleeve allows for storage of other devices (be they phone, wallet or otherwise), allowing you to better organize your bag as you travel.
10. Amazon Cork Cover Case
If you’re searching for a cool, alternative look for your Kindle Paperwhite case, opt for this cork cover from Amazon. Aside from aesthetics, we really like this case because it’s green (as in the environment) and it’s waterproof. Seeing as how the 10th Generation Kindles are waterproof, it feels only right to add a case that is equally water-safe. Some reviewers have even reported using these cases in the bathtub with positive results. Amazon’s cork case is light, naturally made and a great way to set your Paperwhite apart from the crowd, while still keeping it protected.
