Top 5 Kindle Paperwhite Cases with Stand

With its impressive battery life and backlit display, the Kindle Paperwhite is every bookworm’s best friend. It’s slim and light which makes it extremely easy to hold. However, if you are someone who spends hours reading books, you must know that it can be a painful affair for the wrist. At times like this, don’t you wish to prop your Kindle Paperwhite upright so that you can read your favorite books handsfree? Tempting, right?

Top 5 Kindle Paperwhite Cases With Stand

Worry not, we have compiled a list of five of the best Kindle Paperwhite cases with stands. Let’s check them out.

1. MoKo Vertical Flip Cover — $15.99

One of our first choices is the MoKo Vertical Flip Cover. With over 2,044 customer reviews and 78% positive reviews, it bears the tag of Amazon’s Choice. The crux of this case is that you can tilt the device in three different angles, whichever is convenient for you for reading. Moreover, the sturdy build ensures that your Paperwhite is shielded.

The only issue which you may find is that this cover isn’t slim, and will add a slightly bulky look to your Paperwhite. On the bright side, you get to read your books even when you are eating, so I guess that’s a win-win for most of us.


This cover is available in a variety of colors, including Red and Light Blue. And for a few extra dollars, you can try out the gorgeous floral printed covers, that will surely elevate the look of your modest Paperwhite.

  • Weight: 2.4 ounces
  • Dimension: 7 x 5 x 0.7 inches
  • Wake/Sleep Function: Yes
  • Compatible Version: 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016

Being a little different is always welcome, and the Fintie Origami Case follows this principle to a T. Similar to the Japanese art of paper folding, the (front) cover folds back so that you can prop it at an angle. The back of the case snaps on to the Paperwhite, while the magnetic front closes like any regular flip cover, when not in use. As opposed to conventional cases, the front has origami folds, which you might want to consider that before you make your purchase.

The best part is that the front can be folded in multiple ways meaning that you can prop it horizontally as well as vertically. This one also comes with a sleep and wake functionality. The point where it differs from the MoKo Vertical case is that this one is compact and is comfortable to hold, especially if you have slightly smaller hands.

  • Weight: 4 ounces
  • Dimension: 6.5 x 4.6 x 0.4 inches
  • Wake/Sleep Function: Yes
  • Compatible Version: All generations prior to 2018

3. TsuiWah Horizontal Stand – $14.99

At $14.99, we have the TsuiWah Horizontal Stand. This case not only comes with a stand but it also has a nifty hand strap which gives you a firm grip on your Kindle. This case is made of faux leather. And as per some of the reviewers, it has a good feel to it. The eReader is held in place with a wrap-around section (like tablet cases) whereas the front cover folds back completely.

Naturally, this case adds bulk, and you may lose the slim profile of your eReader. Also, this case can be made to stand horizontally as well as vertically.

The case has seen a few complaints regarding the magnets that seem to interfere with the Sleep and Wake mode of the device. However, this issue only materializes when the front flap is folded back too tightly. The TsuiWah Horizontal Stand comes in a variety of attractive colors and prints, and if you are someone who wants to amplify the look of your Paperwhite, this one is worth the shot.

  • Weight:4.8 ounces
  • Dimension: 7 x 5.4 x 0.7 inches
  • Wake/Sleep Function: Yes
  • Compatible Version: All generations prior to 2018

4. iGadgitz Case With Integrated Hand Strap – $28.00

The iGadgitz PU Leather case for the Kindle Paperwhite is a tad different from the conventional ones. You won’t find the typical fold-and-clasp mechanisms as the above covers. Instead, you can unclip the bottom clasp and pull the cover in a vertical position. What else, you can slide your hand on the Y-shaped hook at the back, to hold your Kindle when not using the kickstand. This feature comes in great use if you read a lot during your daily commute.

Out of 300+ reviews on Amazon, this case has 70% positive reviews, and most of the reviewers speak about its ease of use and sturdy build.

  • Weight: 5 ounces
  • Dimension: 7.9 x 7.1 x 1 inches
  • Wake/Sleep Function: Yes
  • Compatible Version: 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015

5. Fintie Flip Case – $14.99

The Fintie Flip Case shares a similar design to the MoKo Vertical Flip Cover. It has the same three tilt levels using which you can angle your Paperwhite. The only difference is that unlike the MoKo case, the three bands are colored black (for the floral covers) and doesn’t share the same print as the outer cover.

The user reviews of this case have been great so far. The only common complaint is that it will add a bit of bulk to the overall design of your eReader.

Fintie Flip Case
  • Weight: 4 ounces
  • Dimension: 6.7 x 4.8 x 0.4 inches
  • Wake/Sleep Function: Yes
  • Compatible Version: All generations prior to 2018

All Decked Up?

With the right case, it’s indeed easy to prop your Kindle Paperwhite and read books handsfree. The good thing is that they do their bit in shielding the Paperwhite from ugly scratches. However, we’d recommend you to be a bit cautious as these cases don’t provide the same level of protection like the OtterBox Defender Series ($69.95). Or if you prefer something simple, you can check out the Omoton Case for the Kindle Paperwhite.
