Thin And Light For One-Handed Reading

Kindle is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.

No Eye Strain, Reads Like Real Paper

Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book.

Unlike Tablets, No Blue Light To Disturb Your Sleep

Studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens like tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps the body fall asleep. Because the Kindle display emits no light, you can read anytime without losing sleep.

No Glare In Bright Sunlight

Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight.

Battery Lasts Weeks, Not Hours

Kindle doesn’t need power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.
