Kobo Aura One & Kobo Aura Edition 2 case covers

Besides original cases for Kobo Aura One and Edition 2, you’ll find below a couple of good alternatives from other producers.

New Aura e-readers were announced by Kobo in August 2016. The number of compatible cases is much smaller than for Kindle (as always). If you want to find out what’s available on the market, make sure to explore this list.

Let’s first go quickly through the e-readers. Kobo Aura One is a waterproof 7.8-inch e-reader designed from scratch. It has the highest waterproof level among e-readers (IPX8) and has a built-in solution for borrowing ebooks from public libraries.

A cheaper option is Kobo Aura Edition 2. It’s a refreshed model from 2013. For this price, you’ll get the front lighted screen, and 4 GB of internal memory.

Don’t expect thousands of covers for Kobo Aura 2016 e-readers. Hundreds? No. Dozens? Yes. That’s why it’s good to explore universal e-reader cases or covers for devices with comparable dimensions and proportions.

Kobo Aura Edition 2 has the similar size as Kobo Glo HD, so if you find a case for Glo that features corner straps (or a sleeve), you can also successfully use it for the Edition 2.

Kobo Aura 2016 dimensions ( height × width × depth )

Model Inches Millimeters
Kobo Aura Edition 2 6.7 × 4.45 × 0.33 159 × 113 × 8.50
Kobo Aura One 7.7 × 5.45 × 0.27 195 × 139 × 6.90

Kobo Aura 2016 case – recommended sites

And the last thing before the list. If you want to keep searching the web for the perfect Kobo case, make sure to visit the following sites.

Amazon – the giant online store offers the largest selection of all kinds of Kobo cases and accessories, including the original ones from Kobo. There are thousands of results for a search phrase “Kobo case.”

eBay – on eBay you can find many cases that are exactly made to fit a specific Kobo model, or are universal e-reader cases. They are unbranded, and that means you’ll be able to buy them for a lower – sometimes much lower – price.

Rakuten – while Amazon and eBay are obvious choices, there are also other sites to explore. One of them is Rakuten, an online store having the same owner as Kobo ebookstore.

Chapters Indigo – while the availability of original cases is limited on a Kobo website, you’ll find them all on Chapters Indigo. Plus, some of the accessories are actually cheaper than on Kobo website.

Etsy – a top destination for vintage and handmade items, art, and supplies. There are sleeves made from a natural cotton, or customized felt covers, or jackets made from a genuine leather – the number of available items is endless!

If you want to add any item to the list, please leave your suggestion in the comments. You can share pictures, too.
