Perfect for reading at night without straining your eyes, the Kindle Paperwhite has a built in light that can be adjusted to suit you, evenly illuminating the screen for every setting. Designed with a range of font sizes, you can enjoy reading without straining your eyes. The layout and typography is automatically adjusted so that each page looks great at every size.
Ultra-long battery life
With just one charge the Kindle Paperwhite can last for up to six weeks, so that you're not left searching for a charger when you're on holiday.
