The Finest Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Circumstances for 2019: Critiques by Wirecutter
Amazon’s Water-Protected Material Cowl is the correct case for nearly anyone who has a 10th-generation Kindle Paperwhite. Its cloth exterior appears to be like and feels nicer to the contact than anything we examined, and Amazon’s instances are the one ones that use magnets to stay the entrance cowl to the again whereas studying. This implies you don’t have to carry it closed or fear about it dangling.
Like each case we examined, the Water-Protected Material Cowl is a plastic shell with an hooked up lid that opens like a guide. What units this one aside (and makes it value greater than the remainder of the competitors) is the material overlaying the surface. The fabric is a polyester cloth that looks like one thing between cotton and nylon, with a texture that gives grip and feels good to carry when it’s shut. Amazon particularly advertises the case as “water-safe,” however most non-leather instances must also have the ability to stand as much as moisture, and for the reason that Kindle Paperwhite is already waterproof, this doesn’t look like a very helpful distinction. However when you’re fearful a couple of cloth case warping in case your water bottle drips on it, this case can deal with getting moist. The entrance cowl itself is especially sturdy, with virtually no give in comparison with different instances that may flex when stress is utilized.
Embedded magnets that get up the Kindle whenever you open the case and put it to sleep whenever you shut it are commonplace; each case we examined for this information had them. What’s rarer is magnets that stick the quilt to the again whenever you’re studying. In reality, we haven’t discovered any instances aside from Amazon’s that achieve this. It’s a small factor, however studying is that rather more nice whenever you don’t have to cope with the quilt. When you’re like me and like to stay your index finger in between the again of the case and the quilt, holding the Kindle continues to be simply as comfy as with all different case. We additionally discovered the magnets are sturdy sufficient to remain shut when the Kindle is turned the wrong way up or jostled in a bag.
The Water-Protected Material Cowl is available in a primary charcoal, a brighter marine blue, and a extra showy canary yellow, skewing in the direction of orange. Extra coloration decisions are typically a superb factor, however most individuals ought to have the ability to discover one they like amongst these three choices.
Our solely criticism with the Water-Protected Material Cowl is the dearth of safety alongside the highest and backside edges. Each are inexplicably left uncovered from nook to nook. We’re not as involved about this design as we’re with instances for dingable metal-and-glass iPads, for instance; the plastic Kindle received’t present scratches or different injury as readily. However extra thorough protection would make the already-best case even higher.
