When you decide to buy a Kindle, the first place to find the cover is Amazon – and the section with Kindle accessories in particular.
While many users are satisfied with offered designs and colors, you need to know that there is only a dozen of cases to choose from.
In this post, we’ve selected the best Kindle cases and accessories from around the web – not only the Amazon but also other sites.
You can jump to the specific device right from below:
- Kindle (basic) cases
- Kindle Paperwhite cases
- Kindle Voyage cases
- Kindle Oasis cases
- Kindle accessories
Before the list, we’d like to go through a couple of buying tips.
If you search for the Kindle accessory in the entire Amazon store, you’ll essentially increase the list of available options. Amazon search box returns almost 1 million items that match the key phrase: Kindle case.
You can perform the search using Google web, or head directly to other sites, such as Etsy or eBay, where the selection of Kindle cases it also very large.
When you’ll buy on Etsy, the biggest marketplace for handmade goods, you’ll order the case or sleeve that will be made to your specific order. To get it in the right dimensions, make sure not only to select your Kindle from a list of supported devices but also write down the dimensions in a message to seller.
Also, some cases can be suitable for more than one specific model. Let’s take a look at the Kindle dimensions.
Kindle dimensions ( height × width × depth )
|Kindle 8 (2016)||6.3 × 4.5 × 0.36||160 × 115 × 9.1|
|Kindle Paperwhite (2016)||6.7 × 4.6 × 0.36||169 × 117 × 9.1|
|Kindle Voyage||6.4 × 4.5 × 0.30||162 × 115 × 7.6|
|Kindle Oasis (2017)||6.3 × 5.6 × 0.33||159 × 141 × 8.3||Kindle Oasis (2016)||5.6 × 4.8 × 0.33||143 × 122 × 8.5|
As you see, the dimensions of Kindle Paperwhite 1/2/3 and the basic Kindle (model 2014) are almost identical (except depth). This means many cases can fit both devices without any problem.
It refers to all cases that hold the device in place with elastic corner straps, or a leather frame. All sleeves – the jackets you put on the Kindle when not reading – are even more flexible.
In other words, if you have the 2nd generation Kindle Paperwhite and your case uses corner elastics, when you buy the Kindle Paperwhite 2015, it will fit it as well.
However, you should be much more careful with cases that are made to fit one specific model. Any case with a plastic shell will fit one specific model – and only this one.
Keep in mind that the differences are not only about the size and shape but also the positions of ports and buttons.
Where to buy Kindle cases and accessories?
And the last thing before the list. Check out our recommendations of stores where you can find more examples of Kindle cases and accessories:
Amazon – Kindle owners shop on Amazon by default, but we advise not to only to check out the cases that are available in the Kindle Store. When you perform a search storewide, you’ll see the results from “Electronics” section – and here you’ll find out thousands of other cases to consider.
Best Buy – the range of offered accessories is pretty limited, but the store is worth checking out if you want to buy a Kindle case or accessory at a reduced price.
eBay – a proven place to shop for affordable accessories. Sometimes, you can pick up here the case that’s the same as the branded one you’ve found on Amazon but costs two-thirds of the price. Worth checking if you’re interested in exploring budget options.
Etsy – this is our favorite marketplace for custom items, hand-crafted to order. There are a plenty of Kindle jackets and sleeves to choose from. If you want to get an insanely cute or uniquely stylish pouch – look no further than Etsy.

Kindle 8 (2016)
Thin and light for one-handed reading
New—The all-new Kindle is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.
No glare in bright sunlight
Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight.
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. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving text and image quality.
Battery lasts weeks, not hours
Kindle doesn’t need the power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.
Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your sleep
Recent 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.
Thousands of books, no distractions
Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications.
Kindle Paperwhite (2016)
Highest resolution e-reader display
With twice as many pixels as the previous generation, the all-new Kindle Paperwhite has an improved high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp, laser-quality text. No other e-reader offers a higher resolution display.
Won’t tire your eyes in the dark
Kindle Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably for hours without eyestrain.
Next-generation reading experience
