See Details 1 new from £129.99Top of Form Connectivity: Wi-Fi Only All-new Kindle Paperwhite – Now waterproof and twice the storage. Now waterproof (IPX8), so you’re free to read and relax at the beach, by the pool or in the bath. Enjoy twice the storage with 8 GB.
Or choose 32 GB to hold more magazines, comics and audiobooks. Now with Audible. Pair with Bluetooth headphones or speakers to listen to your story. A single battery charge lasts weeks, not hours. The built-in adjustable light lets you read indoors and outdoors, day and night. Low prices and massive selection: over 5.5 million books including latest bestsellers, Kindle exclusives and more.
New this year is water resistance to 2 metres for up to 60 minutes, which means trips to the beach or poolside are less fraught with danger. It’s worth noting that the Paperwhite is unlikely to float, so perhaps best not to take it in the sea, but a quick dip or splash will be fine. Battery life is the same quoted 21 hours of reading time, or six weeks of 30 minutes a day with Wi-Fi off.
How far into a book that gets you depends on your reading speed, but I found it could comfortably stretch to a 400-page book between charges with the screen at half brightness or more. Switch on Wi-Fi and 4G, if you have it, and the battery life will be significantly reduced. It goes into a deep sleep if you don’t use it for an extended period, which helps maintain battery life even with connectivity on.
12 November 2018. Connectivity: Wi-Fi Only Digital Storage Capacity: 8Offer Type: Without Special Offers Verified Purchase. Before deciding to buy this Kindle, I had been using the 2010 Kindle – the one with no keyboard and no touch screen, just the side buttons. I’d had no inclination to buy another Kindle, because the touch screen wasn’t enough of a pull to spend more money on it. I had filled my 2010 Kindle with 18 pages of books and felt sad that I couldn’t read it in the bath (my second favourite place) or at night in bed with the light off (my favourite place) I looked on the Amazon store to see how much the Kindle Paperwhite was and saw this beauty!
Colour: A-Apricot Flower Verified Purchase. Really pretty case with stylus pen and screen cleaner cloth.
