Won’t tire your eyes in the dark
Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light — unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes-so you can read comfortably without eyestrain. Adjust your screen’s brightness for great reading in any light.
Charge monthly, not daily
Kindle Paperwhite won’t leave you tethered to an outlet. A single charge can last up to eight weeks (based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting to ten), unlike tablets that need to be charged each night.
