Today I will be reviewing the best options for Kindle Paperwhite cases because nobody wants their mobile library broken! In light of the new 10th Generation model, finding a good case can be a headache amidst so many changes!

Updated 5/1/19: All cases included on this list fit the new 2019 Kindle Paperwhite Model!

Foreword: There are 5 models listed below, ranging from heavy duty cases to Amazon’s own waterproof leather case. (Also the 1# Best selling Kindle Case)

In my last post, here, I presented My Honest Review & Comparisons For The Top 4 Best Rated Amazon’s Kindle Readers For 2019. Update: Review now includes 10th Gen Waterproof Paperwhite model!

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out that post, I went very in-depth and compared the best Readers online.

My favorite model out of the many choices online today, is the Kindle Paperwhite. I explain why this is in the previous post, be sure to check that out.

Why You Need A Case

At least it is for me at times, cases look so similar and it can be easy to overlook a small detail that could make or literally “break” the case.Kindle Paperwhite Cases - I Sat On It

Protecting such valuable devices is essential today. Furthermore, if you don’t have your device under warranty, getting a new device can be pricey!

We now have the ability to read hundreds if not thousands of books with a device. Not only that, but we can do so by storing all of our books on one device! It is paramount to preserve our mobile libraries.

The Problem Is That Electronics Are Fragile!

Here is a link to a reputable site full of stories about people breaking their kindles! Most if not all of them don’t have cases.

I read another article about a lady who had her kindle replaced 5 times before she finally decided to get a case! This lady was lucky her Kindles were still under warranty!

Many people love reading, but all to many people treat their Kindles like actual books. If their reader is dropped, the effects can be devastating. I know that keeping my kindle safe and handling with care have made it possible to always have a working model on hand.

How This List Will Help You

There are many models to choose from in terms of the best Kindle Paperwhite Cases, but it is my goal to give you insight into the best models to choose from for your new 10th Gen Paperwhite.Kindle Paperwhite Cases - Reading With Dog

If you didn’t do some digging, you would never know that there were more choices than just Amazon’s own brand for cases online. One such example would be the “TiMOVO Case”. It is inexpensive and well made.

An interesting factoid about Amazon is that many items are never shown unless you search a precise term. If an item has never been reviewed or rated, Amazon doesn’t associate that item with the most popular search terms.

Thus, you may never even see a 3rd party version of the product you are looking for. I have listed Amazon’s models and several others that look very promising, especially for the price! I believe in knowing my options before making a purchase, and I you should have that benefit too.

What You Should Look For In A Case:

  • Magnetic Seal

Interestingly, magnetic seals have become a staple expected with many electronics and case models today. However, not all models come with magnetic seals built in. You may be very disappointed when your reader randomly opens and turns on because you accidentally held it the wrong way.Kindle Paperwhite Cases - Reading Indoors

Thankfully, many of the “good” ones come with magnetic seals. I would advocate that this is more of a function to consider vs. a cosmetic plus. No one wants their kindle damaged because it wasn’t sealed shut.

If you weren’t paying attention, you could easily assume such an essential feature would be included with your model. Twas not to be!

  • Color Choices

There is certainly a fashion statement made when they choose the “hot pink” or the “lime green” color scheme for any electronics. A kindle reader has little difference in the way of this. Picking a low-key color like “black” or “grey” certainly looks more robotic, but a more stylish color can personalize your reader like nothing else.

I think color choices really scream customization and creativity. I have listed several models that have multiple colors or pattern choices for your convenience. The pictures show the black color listed for each, but there are other choices.

  • Waterproofing

Since the new Kindle Paperwhite came out in 2018 with full Waterproofing, this may come as a bit of a surprise for you. Amazon’s standard cases are not waterproof!Kindle Paperwhite Cases - Reading Next To Pool

Indeed, you would need to get a different model that has “waterproof leather” built in. This is not a big deal for someone who isn’t expecting to get very wet, but for the enthusiast who wants to read while they are chillaxing* in a pool or by the ocean, this is a very applicable choice.

If you didn’t look closely at some of the product specifics, or see some of the other models carried online, you might assume all of them would have been built with water in mind, only to regret your decision later.

The 4th case listed below is the only model currently equipped with water proof leather. Definitely check that one out if you are an aqua-inclined reader! 🙂

  • Weight

This is really not a big factor anymore. Every model is barley over 5oz at max usually, while the whole of the weight exists with the reader itself. Granted, some people may actually notice a difference between Amazon’s brand and some others’. Indeed, some cases listed are lighter than their counterparts.

If you are trying to go as light as possible, there are choices for you in this regard.

  • Model Dimensions/Size

This is where the measurements get a bit tricky. People think that if a case fits a model, that it is going to be retro-fitted to perfectly envelope a kindle without hindering functionality.Kindle Paperwhite Cases - Woman Interested Reading

They aren’t wrong entirely, but because manufacturers create different cases, some products will not fit a kindle the way you expect. Some Kindle Paperwhite cases fit elegantly to a reader, while others prefer more bulk and shell-like protection.

This is not a negative factor, but may bug you in the long wrong. Pictures are included below which should give you greater insight into what you can expect with every case.

  • How A Model Compares To Amazon’s Brand

This is a big one! Amazon manufactures Kindle Readers and naturally creates their own Kindle Paperwhite cases. But for anyone looking to save money on an item that (in my opinion) shouldn’t cost more than $20 dollars, Amazon’s hefty price tag makes you wonder if it’s worth it.

That’s why I’ve done the research for you and found several models that have recently been released and are 3x cheaper or more compared to Amazon’s brand!

Naturally I recommend reading the item specifics and my reviews on 3rd party cases. Not every case is going to exceed the quality of Amazon’s, but you may be surprised to see that several of them offer exceptional quality at a fraction of the cost.

I hope you enjoy, and will let me know which you like most!

This model is by far one of the best deals out there for Kindle Paperwhite cases. The standup feature built into this case is one of the coolest I’ve ever seen!

Updated: New colors and patterns!

It offers exceptional protection from every angle and looks suave!

Naturally this is a 3rd party brand I recommend you compare to Amazon’s brand (listed below) as I’m sure you will become more confident in a purchase like this when you see how much it offers for a quarter of the cost.

In Conclusion:

If you are looking for a cheap, good-looking case that will serve your needs this is a great choice. With functionality, a sleek design, and a strong build, I highly recommend it.

2. All-New Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover (10th Generation-2018), Black

At first glance, it is very easy to assume that the leather Amazon designed their case with would be water proof, but nope!

Kindle Paperwhite Cases - Paperwhite Leather 10th Standard

See Full Case Details on Amazon

The fourth case listed is the water proof model they’ve designed.

Unless you are expecting a lot of time in the water however, it would be sheer negligence to say that Amazon’s leather covers aren’t exceptionally made. There is a reason these things sell at such a high price.

That being said, I like to know my money is being spent well, and while I do love Amazon’s brand, I’ve never viewed their cases as worth $40 dollars.

In Conclusion:

No other case is better fitted for your paperwhite than Amazon’s. However, I am inclined to view other models as a better deal since the price is so steep.

3. TiMOVO Case for Kindle Paperwhite E-reader (10th Generation, 2018 Release) – Premium Thin Lightweight Leather Cover with Auto Wake / Sleep for Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, Black

Kindle Paperwhite Cases - Timovo Slim 10th Gen

See Full Case Details on Amazon

This case is unique. It is the cheapest on market currently, one of the smallest both in weight and dimensions, and is one of the first released of it’s kind.

Sporting a sleek design and all the functionality you would expect in Kindle Paperwhite cases, I think this is a perfect choice for anyone looking for the smallest option possible.

I personally think TiMOVO”s standup to be better, but no case can match the tiny weight on this thing.

In Conclusion:

Portability is a big part of these cases, and TiMOVO’s Slim case maximizes portability with protection. It also appears to be the one of the best price point for both. It remains to be seen if it is as sturdy as it says.

4. All-new Kindle Paperwhite Water-Safe Fabric Cover (10th Generation-2018), Charcoal Black

This is the best selling Kindle case on market currently and it’s easy to see why. No other case sports the reputation, color choices, slender weight and dimensions, and the functionality of this case.

It’s made with waterproof leather making it perfect for anyone inclined to do much of their reading in the water. Indeed, this is certainly one of the best models out there, and the price point is at about the maximum I would pay for a case currently.

In Conclusion:

No other case has waterproof or water resistant leather, and has so much to offer. It’s price point is a bit hefty compared to 3rd party models, but Amazon really has done good with this one!

If you read my statements on dimensions, then this model will no doubt relate perfectly to you. Since Amazon only allows their base photo to be used for product reviews, I am unable to show you the inside of this case.

That being said, if you see the full details on Amazon, you will see that the inside of this case looks like your kindle is strapped in a harness surrounded by an outer shell.

Most Kindle Paperwhite cases are equipped with a build that hugs the reader rather than surround it, but not this one!

If you are looking for a case that may provide even more protection from outer damage, this may be the choice for you. I’m unsure myself since this hasn’t been tested and isn’t made with the same components that most manufacturers include.

In Conclusion:

This may or may not have more protection that other cases, it’s build is like that of a giant sleeve that acts as a shell for your kindle. Were it as much as the TiMOVO models, it would definitely be more appealing.

At this point, I don’t recommend it, but no other model is built like this and you may like it more than standard looking models.

My Personal Favorite Out of the Kindle Paperwhite Cases:

This was probably expected, but I can’t get over the price and quality of this case. This is probably the best of kindle paperwhite cases on the market right now. I believe this case will offer you high quality protection in addition to easy transportation and storage.

I believe there are few cases that can boast such high ratings and offer so many options for you.

Another reason is that this particular model is so darn cheap! Either many of the other models aren’t good quality, or they charge you an arm and a leg!

Rather than go through that hassle, do yourself a favor and get a case that you can count on!

Pros & Cons

All jokes aside, this case doesn’t beat the others by much, it is just better in my opinion because of it’s win-win in several areas.

  • Price is cheap and very affordable. Hence, one of it’s easiest selling points.


  • Portable but keeps the protection of a case like Amazon’s brand. Update: Has been rated better than Amazon’s brand previously!


  • Has all the latest features, including a built in stand-up feature for hands-free usage! I like the choice in colors and patterns too!


  • Easy access to ports and buttons due to it’s open access sections.


  • In addition to it’s protection, it is surprisingly slim. Because of this, it’s storage becomes that much easier for you!

  • Brandon says:

    I have the Omoton case you have pictured and I really like it. I like how its no bulky and heavy so its easy to transport and carry around. Great reviews by you as well!!!

  • AnxietyPanda says:

    The Tree and Flowers Kindle Case is really beautiful! I might even buy it just because of that xD I’m looking for a birthday present for my sister, who loves her kindle. This may very well go on my list of considerations for gifts. Thanks for reviewing it!
    So too the Constellation one!

  • Lee Ann says:

    I believe I would want the Omoton. The fact that it is lightweight and waterproof, had me. I hate cases that are bulky, they just seem to make it less easy to manage when you are on the go, which we are always on the go. Waterproof, is a must when you have little ones and 4 legged family members with very active tails that like to spill your drink and your Kindle just happens to be laying there on the coffee table.
    Awesome information on these cases. Thank you for helping me decide on which one to get.

  • David says:

    Hi Jacob,

    I loved your review comparing a number of different choices for the best Kindle Paperwhite case.

    As you say it makes a lot of sense to get a case in order to protect your Kindle, especially since it could have so many “books” in it.

    It seems that the better the protection, the less portable and possibly less user friendliness because of the weight of the additional protection.

    Maybe comparing the weight of a hardback version of a best selling thriller against the combined weight of the Kindle and the Case, to see how that compares. Some hardback books are not on the light side, from a weight viewpoint. 🙂

    Anyway after reading your review, I came to the conclusion that I would go for the OMOTON Kindle Paperwhite Case Cover whenever I am looking for a Kindle Paperwhite case.


  • Ben says:

    Very detailed and in-depth analysis. I like how you covered the pros and cons of these kindle cases. Very informative review style and great pictures to go along with that.

    It’s also great that you have the product specs listed for each one, so people don’t even need to see the full product page on Amazon in order to find what they might need.

    Thanks for the info,

    • Absolutely, Ben! The motto of helping people first has become the driving force behind good business. I like to think FSB carries this business mindset well. Also, if people are going to read reviews on something, they are clearly out to find helpful info. If it isn’t helpful, then what’s the point? On another note, I believe you will find my other post detailing the best Kindle Reader models this year, quite useful.

  • Furkan says:

    I like the All-new Kindle Paperwhite Water-Safe as my brother always spills some water on kindle. I actually want to get it for him as a present and can you recommend some other stuff which I can buy for someone who constantly read kindle books?

  • Doc says:

    Wow, very detailed post on cases I enjoyed your page layout very interactive and dynamic set up many eye-catching photos and titles. My Girlfriend reads her Kindle in the pool so having a waterproof kindle is very reassuring when trying to lay on those slippery floats.

    • There you go. Having a waterproof kindle makes a HUGE difference! I know many people who would love to read their books in the water and only recently have been given the option with the newest Paperwhite model. The Oasis model is still my favorite, but for the money, I think the Paperwhite is the next best.
