Best Kindle Paperwhite cases 2024

If you're like me, your Kindle Paperwhite is practically attached to your hand. My library is on one of these long-lasting tablets, so a little extra protection never hurt. The latest 2021 Kindle Paperwhite model comes with a larger 6.8-inch display compared to the previous generations meaning you'll need a different case if you're still rocking an older model. Luckily, you can still find a wide range of options for both sizes including folios and bumpers with tons of materials and patterns to help you express yourself.

Keep your Kindle Paperwhite protected (older 6-inch models)

A good book can last for years, and so can your Kindle Paperwhite

Use a cover to keep your Kindle Paperwhite safe when traveling. It is the best Amazon Kindle e-reader, so you should protect the screen against damage from drops. Cases also allow for better ergonomics, leaving you feeling like you're reading an actual book. Books can last for hundreds of years if properly cared for and while an electronic device will never be able to match that, a proper case can help it last years before it needs to be sent to the recyclers.

One of our favorites is the Cork Cover from Amazon with a soft natural feeling that's easy to hold for long periods of time. It's also soft enough to protect the tablet from impacts from all directions and it's even water-safe so you don't need to panic if it gets splashed at the pool. You can get it in a light or dark color to better match your other accessories.

If you're looking for something more versatile, the Stand Case from MoKo has a kickstand that lets you prop your tablet up on a table or desk. While a kickstand isn't necessarily ergonomic for reading a book, it can be perfect for referencing documents while working on something else, such as schematics or guides.

Finally, remember to get a case that fits your Kindle Paperwhite. These tablets don't need the latest in tech like some others so they can last longer. In 2021, Amazon updated the screen size from 6 inches to 6.8 inches making content easier to see but requiring new case sizes. If you have a 10th-generation or older model, make sure you pick a case that supports that size.
