Everything we have, is 100% Original
Kindle Paperwhite is thin, lightweight, and travels easily so you can enjoy your favorite books at any time. With our signature 300 PPI glare-free Paperwhite display—now 10% brighter at its maximum setting compared to the previous generation—you can read in any light. A single battery charge via USB-C lasts up to 10 weeks. Battery life may vary depending on use.
MAKE A SPLASH
With the waterproof Kindle Paperwhite, you’re free to read and relax in more places—from the beach to the bath. Kindle Paperwhite is IPX8 rated (tested in laboratory conditions) to protect against accidental immersion in up to two meters of freshwater for up to 60 minutes, and up to 0.25 meters of seawater for up to 3 minutes.
GOES BEYOND A BOOK
Now you can adjust the shade of your Kindle Paperwhite display from white light to warm amber, or schedule when the light changes for a personalized reading experience. You can also adjust the size and boldface of text for whatever suits you best.
