Published: Thursday, 1st April 2021 at 1:49 pm

E-readers are the perfect, portable way to enjoy lots of different books wherever you are. But if you’re taking your Kindle Paperwhite out and about, you’ll want a case to protect it from scratches and any nick or bumps.


There are lots of style, materials and designs to choose from and you can even create your own on Caseable if you're after a personalised kindle Paperwhite case.

Whether you’re looking for something sophisticated and boardroom-ready or fun and unique, we’ve found a selection of the best Kindle Paperwhite cases to help you choose the perfect one for you. (Or, if it’s iPhone 11 cases you’re looking for, we’ve found those too.)

All the cases below should be compatible with the 2018 Kindle Paperwhite.

How to choose a new case for your Kindle Paperwhite

  • Size should not generally be a problem but do check you are buying a case that will fit.
  • Have a habit of reading your kindle by the water? Best to look out for a waterproof case.
  • Not all of the cases come with a light for night-time reading, so look for one that does if that is a deal-breaker for you.
