The new waterproof Kindle Paperwhite 4 was just released less than 3 weeks ago, and a bunch of third-party covers are already available for it (meanwhile I’ve still yet to see a single third-party cover for the Kobo Forma).
Amazon offers three different cases of their own for the new Kindle Paperwhite, including a fabric water-safe cover for $29, a leather cover for $39, and a premium leather cover for $59.
The advantage with third-party covers is they’re usually a lot cheaper; Amazon’s covers are pretty expensive.
In fact several of the alternative covers currently available cost less than $10.
When searching for cases and other accessories for the Kindle Paperwhite 4, make sure the description says it’s compatible with the 10th generation Kindle, the 2018 model. Even though it’s the fourth gen Paperwhite model they refer to it as the 10th gen Kindle.
The previous Kindle Paperwhite models have a slightly different design so covers aren’t interchangeable with the new model.
It’s worth noting that all the cases on the list below have the wake/sleep magnet to automatically turn the Kindle on and off when opening and closing the cover—it’s a standard feature with most covers these days.
