With the Amazon Kindle, a long hour of reading is no more a problem which is with tablets or Smartphones. It has no harmful effects on the eyes and is the perfect choice for an avid reader.

For anyone out there wanting to know more about the Amazon Kindle devices, you are at the right place! Let us now take a look at the basic features of an Amazon Kindle and the reason for its success and why it’s trending so much. Let’s take a brief look at all the models and the Amazon coupons and offers available in the Amazon sale 2018.

The All New Amazon Kindle Basic Features

Since its launch back in 2007, the Amazon Kindle has been a great success due to the superior quality and the futuristic technology that only Amazon came up with. The most attractive and unique part of the Kindle is the no harm element to the eyes and the affordable price for such a futuristic technology. Let us now briefly look at some of the top features of the Amazon Kindle.

  • Thin & Lightweight: The Amazon Kindle’s base model weighs just about 161 grams and is super thin too which is at times even lighter than some books. The lightweight & thin characteristics make it really easy to carry while traveling anywhere. It just fits in right anywhere.
  • Anti-Glare Screen: All of the Amazon Kindle products come with an anti-glare screen which is one of the best features. Most of the time in the past avid readers would take on reading on the move which most of the times was either on tablets or their cell phones. What really caused a problem was glaring that used to trouble even at the brightest of the settings. Now, with the Amazon Kindle’s glare-free screen you can read right under the sun without any problem.
  • No Eye Strain: While reading on tablets or even long use of a cell phone or a laptop causes a strain on the eyes, but with the Amazon Kindle’s ink-based technology makes it less strenuous on the eyes. Actually, there is absolutely no strain on the eyes, at least not more than what a real book reading causes.
  • Long Lasting Battery: What if we told you the battery of the Amazon Kindle lasts days? What if we told you actually it lasts weeks! Yes! You heard us right. The battery of any Amazon Kindle device lasts at least weeks with a single charge. The device takes just about 4 hours to charge fully.
  • No Blue Light: As explained before the Amazon Kindle is based on a futuristic ink-based technology, which uses actual ink particles, thus there is no backlit which is required, and it just reflects the text with the natural light that is around. Whereas when compared tablets and smartphones have these blue rays which disturb our sleep patterns. So, no more worrying with the Kindle, you can have long reading sessions worry-free.
  • Thousands of Books to choose From: There are about more than 2 million Kindle titles which you can choose to buy from Amazon. Amazon also offers about 30,000 free kindle books to get you started with your new Kindle device.
  • Built-In Dictionary: Have you ever faced a problem with the meaning of any word and then finding it either on Google or a dictionary? It really breaks the flow of reading, to be honest. But with Amazon Kindle’s built-in dictionary, you can just click on any word where you feel stuck and know the meaning within a second without even leaving the page. You don’t even need to be connected to the internet for that.
  • Enhance Your Vocabulary: Now with the Amazon Kindle’s vocabulary builder, you can simply improve your vocabulary with flash cards and quizzes. How kindle does this is that whenever you look for the meaning of a word the Kindle simply stores it in its vocabulary builder. Then you just need to access the vocabulary builder to improve at it.

These are some of the most basic and unique features of a Kindle which makes it worth buying and is the reason for its huge success. There are also some additional features that all the Kindle devices have to offer so let’s take a look at them.
