Since launching the Kindle in 2007, Amazon has grown its e-reader family through numerous generations and models. The Kindle Paperwhite saw an update in 2018 that made it waterproof and thinner, following the launch of the first waterproof Kindle, the Oasis. Of course, there the Kindle Voyage too.

Whichever model you have, choosing the right case can seem daunting considering each of these e-readers have different sizes. But whether you’re looking for functionality or fun, here are some options that bring you the best of both worlds.

If you're after a case for the Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet, and not the e-reader, see our designated round up of the best cases.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2018) Water-Safe Fabric Case

The update to the Kindle Paperwhite (10th Gen.) made it waterproof, which means you might also want to pair it with a waterproof case.

Of course most synthetic cases available are waterproof anyway, so you're not getting anything revolutionary here, but the fabric texture is a nice touch and should help with grip (though we haven't personally tried it).

Like Amazon's case for the last generation Paperwhite (see next slide), this case puts your Kindle to sleep on closing and wakes it on opening. It comes in three shades: yellow (pictured), charcoal black and blue.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (9th Gen) Leather Case

Amazon’s own selection of cases may be the best and most obvious place to start. The Kindle Paperwhite Leather Case offers streamlined, lightweight and stylish protection for your device.

Amazon’s case also promises hinge and strap-free protection, and conveniently, puts your Paperwhite to sleep when the case is closed.

The Paperwhite Leather Case case is available for the 2018 Paperwhite as well in Black, Indigo Purple, Merlot and Red – while additional colour options for the previous model include shades like Fushsia and Royal Purple.

Noreve Kindle Paperwhite (2018) Leather Case

French company Noreve offers a broad range of styles for the 10th generation Kindle Paperwhite. You can choose from genuine hand-crafted leather styles with different grains or go for synthetic leather options too.

Not only can you choose from a broad range of styles, but also a broad range of colours. The price does vary depending on what you select.

Noreve produces cases for other Kindle models too and options for the Kindle Oasis are also available on Amazon UK. You can see the whole range of cases by device on Noreve's site here.

Amazon Origami Cover for Kindle Voyage

For Kindle Voyage owners, Amazon also offers the Origami Case that cleverly folds into an upright position, allowing hands-free reading.

Like the Paperwhite Leather Case, the Origami case puts your device to sleep on closing. The case’s magnetic fastener secures the cover shut even when you are on the move.

While not as suave to the ear as “leather case”, the polyurethane shell offers durability, and a microfiber interior helps maintain a clean screen. Amazon only offers the Origami case for the Voyage.

Fintie Origami Case for Kindle Paperwhite

For Paperwhite owners who would still like the Origami style case for their Kindle, the best alternative may be with Fintie. The brand offers the Origami design with stunning patterns and graphics -- and at about a third of the price of Amazon's.

The Fintie Origami case is crafted to fit the Paperwhite 2018 (£12.99/from US$14.99) as well as the previous model (use link above).

While these Fintie Origami cases are incompatible with the original Kindle and Kindle Touch, Oasis owners can find a selection of patterns and styles for 9th generation devices for £11.99/US$11.99 on Amazon.

MoKo Case for Kindle E-reader (2016)

If you own the standard Kindle, MoKo offers a SmartShell Case that is designed specifically for the 6 inch display (8th generation version). MoKo promises a particularly bulk-free build.

The case offers synthetic leather protection on the front and hard shell protection on the back. The interior features a microfiber surface to protect the screen as well. Like Amazon’s Origami case, the MoKo case also puts your device to sleep on closing.

MoKo cases are available with different artwork options for the front and have a lifetime warranty.

See Moko cases for other Kindle devices here, including the 2018 Paperwhite.

Walnew Protective Case for Amazon Kindle Voyage

Walnew is another popular case manufacturer Kindle owners may want to explore. This lightweight case, designed for the Voyage, is similar to the MoKo case with a synthetic leather front and a microfiber interior. The Walnew case also puts the device to sleep on closing.

Walnew offers cases for the Kindle (2016) and the Paperwhite, as well as soft-sleeve (from £21.49/US$11.99) and origami-style options (£17.46/$8.99) for the Oasis.

See the full range here.

Caseable Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite Case

Caseable cases offer an eye-catching range of patterns and graphics that are designed by international artists, particularly from Brooklyn and Berlin. They tout their “Made for Amazon” certification and offer a case that is compatible with all Paperwhite generations, the Kindle (5th, 7th and 8th generation), and the Kindle Touch (4th Generation).

Unlike the other cases on this list, Caseable’s design secures the device in place using elastic straps.

Caseable’s cases are made of scratch and shock resistant “finely pored polyester” and a suede leather interior. The front cover also has a panel to hold notes, which some readers might find useful.

Kindle, Voyage, Touch, Paperwhite and Paperwhite (2018) users can also personalize their cases using their own images using Caseable’s online platform.

Fintie Folio for Kindle Paperwhite

Here's another option from Fintie if you're looking for something with old world charm. It's made of synthetic leather case and has a branded design on the front.

The e-reader slots into the inner pocket, and is held in place with a velcro flap. Like many of the other cases on this list, it puts your Kindle to sleep on closing.

If you're wondering, it fits every version of Paperwhite, but not the basic Kindle or Kindle Touch.

Available in Bronze (pictured), blue, and black in the UK, though the US has a number of colours and patterns to choose from.
