How to identify your Kindle model

Published on

In this post we will try to help you identify your Kindle for the purpose of buying Cases and Accessories on our site. We won't differentiate between generations if it is not relevant. For example, the Kindle Paperwhite is currently in it's 3rd generation, but since dimensions have remained the same, we will just refer to all generations as "Kindle Paperwhite".

If you have a Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Voyage or Kindle Oasis, then you don't need to worry about which generation your device is since dimensions have remained the same.

The problem with "Kindle"

Back in 2011 Amazon had a device named "Kindle" and it introduced one named "Kindle Touch" (with touch-screen). In the following years it stopped producing the "Kindle" (without touch screen) and continued with the "Kindle Touch", however it dropped the name "Kindle Touch" and started to use only "Kindle". That confused a lot of people.

Amazon hasn't used the term "Kindle Touch" since, but some Australian retailers continue to refer to the now "Kindle" as "Kindle Touch".  So if you have bought a "Kindle Touch" in Australia after 2013, you have a "Kindle". Now we only need to find which one exactly and we'll do this by checking the serial number.

Identifying your Kindle by it's Serial Number

Check your device's serial number by going into "Settings" > "Device Info". Now compare the first 4 characters with the numbers below.

Search the serial number

Just search the first 4 characters of you serial number in this page. Hit CMD+F (Mac) or Ctrl+F (Pc) and type the characters in the search box.
