LISTEN UP! These e-readers are expected to have a moderate level of wear & tear including (but not limited to) scratches, dents, and dings. On the Amazon grading scale, they are considered "Used-Unacceptable", but we think they're pretty nice. Outside of their physical appearance, they have been tested to be in full working condition by an Amazon technician. See 'Specs' for more information
Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications
Thin and light for one-handed reading
New—Kindle is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.
No eye strain, reads like real paper
Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving text and image quality.
Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your sleep
Studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens like tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps the body fall asleep. Because the Kindle display emits no light, you can read anytime without losing sleep.
No glare in bright sunlight
Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight.
Battery lasts weeks, not hours
A single battery charge allows you to read for weeks, not hours.
Millions of books, no distractions
Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications.

What does Scratch & Dent really mean?
We get this inventory directly from our counterparts at Amazon. When they receive returns or trade-in devices, they grade them on a scale from "Used - Like New" all the way to "Used - Unacceptable". What we've found is that their "Unacceptable" is a misnomer, and really just means it has 5 or more areas of scuffs, dents, dings, or scratches.
So my box will say 'Used - Unacceptable'? Why would I buy something that says "Unacceptable"?
The term 'Unacceptable' in the real world and 'Unacceptable' in Amazon-land mean 2 totally different things. In this sense, it's strictly an objective term for a device with 5 or more areas that are scuffed, dented, dinged, or scratched. Total. Front or Back or combined from Both. That's it. Don't believe us? Look at the pictures in the Photo Gallery. That's what Amazon's unacceptable looks like.
Fine, but what does this mean for me (the customer)?
Basically, you get to purchase a legit Amazon device for a steep discount. It may not be the newest model, and it may have some
scratches character, but it has been fully tested by Amazon themselves...not some guy in their garage.
I want to give this as a gift. Can you just mark out the 'Used - Unacceptable' on mine?
We'll do you one better. We'll put a sticker over it. We can't guarantee that an
annoying inquisitive person won't peel the sticker off to reveal the truth, but we tried.
Well, if you're putting a sticker over the 'Used - Unacceptable' label, why go through all of this?
We just want to be straight with you. If we got a box from someone we trust and it said "Unacceptable", we'd be hella butthurt about it. But, if you told us upfront about it and why it has to be what way, we'd be cool.
TLDR; We treat you the way we'd want to be treated.
