Kindle accessories are perfect for those who love their Amazon Kindle and wouldn’t want to live without it. Whether for practical reasons, or just to add a little flair to their reading time, Kindle accessories make great gifts – even if you’re just treating yourself!
Kindle Accessories for Every Taste
Sometimes all you need is a classic and classy case for your Kindle. These light yet protective cases from Amazon have a smart cover that wakes your Kindle Paperwhite when opened and puts it to sleep when closed. Made from premium leather, they are available in a variety of colors.
If you or someone you know is a lover of old books, then vintage book covers are wonderful Kindle accessories. The Manor Bindery makes beautiful Kindle cases, reminiscent of old tomes, but without the extra weight.
Kids can be pretty tough on mobile devices, so if you have a Kindle that gets used by children, you’ll need a case that can keep up with them. This case is entirely made of EVA foam rubber, with a handle that doubles as stand support, and it comes is several bold colors. Check out our other recommendations for kid-proof tablet cases.
If you’re looking for something to store your Kindle in when it’s not in use, but otherwise don’t want a traditional case, then a Kindle sleeve is for you.
A little rugged, a little old-fashioned looking, this envelope-style tablet sleeve is made of Crazy Horse leather, and it’s actually water repellent. It’s great for those with a rustic aesthetic who like to keep their gadgets out of sight, out of mind.
This slim felt and leather tablet sleeve will give your Kindle a little extra protection when it’s not in use. The padded felt body absorbs the shock from falls and is scratch-free on the Kindle screen.
MoKo makes a variety of cases for Kindle e-readers. Their neoprene cases have a zipper closure and will fit all of the seven and eight inch Kindle e-readers, including the new Kindle Fire HD 8. The soft fabric will cushion the Kindle and prevent scratching on the screen.
If you want to make sure that your Kindle is well and truly protected at the beach or when reading poolside, a waterproof sleeve is the ultimate Kindle accessory. The WALNEW waterproof sleeve is made of durable PVC and has three zip locking strips to create a seal. It’s universal, so you can put your iPad or smartphone in there for safekeeping too. While it’s not something you’ll need all of the time, it’s pretty cheap, so it’s a worthwhile investment.
Not into the extra bulk of a case? Personalize your Kindle with a skin. While a Kindle skin won’t add protection from bumps and drops, it’s a super cool Kindle accessory.
DecalGirl has so many skins to choose from, you might have a hard time deciding. They offer skins for a wide variety of Kindles, from the Fire HD8 2017 to the old Kindle Keyboard.

Cables & Chargers
Even if a Kindle holds its charge for much longer than a smartphone, you can never have too many charging cables lying around the house. Kindle uses micro USB to charge, as do many other electronic devices, so it doesn’t hurt to have a few extras. These nylon braided cables are more durable than plastic or rubber cables because the nylon covering resists knotting and tangling.
Amazon makes an official replacement charger just for Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets. This 9W, 1.8A power adapter can fully charge most Kindle devices in 4 hours or less. The cable is not included.
What better Kindle accessories than books? A subscription to Kindle Unlimited gives readers access to over one million e-books and thousands of audiobooks. You can purchase a subscription for yourself, or give one as a gift. Subscription lengths are six, twelve and twenty-four months.
