Which Kindle do I have?

Kindle serial number lookup - Identify Kindle model

Introduction

If you love to read, your Amazon Kindle is probably one of the most important devices in your life, and all important devices are showered with loads of tender loving accessories. Identifying your Kindle model is an important step in determining which Skin or case it is compatible with.

Confusing Kindles

The naming convention of Kindle models can be confusing; In the beginning, Amazon named their Kindle devices based on the iteration of each sub category but at some point, they started using their Kindle (basic) as the baseline when referring to the generation of the model.

For example, the Paperwhite 4 that was released in 2018 was initially called the Paperwhite 4th generation as it was the 4th iteration of the Paperwhite model, but Amazon subsequently called this the Paperwhite (10th Generation) because it was part of the 10th generation family of Kindles that were released in 2018-2019.

In other words, depending on who you ask, the same device can be called either the Paperwhite 4th generation or Paperwhite 10th generation. All of this gets even more exciting when you throw in the iterations and name variations of every Kindle sub category, such as the Kindle Oasis, Kindle (basic) and other adventures such as the Voyager or Touch.

Amazon maintained the Kindle (basic) baseline naming convention in recent years but it looks like someone on the team was not paying attention as the new Kindle Scribe was released as "Kindle Scribe 1st generation - 2022 release". We will however call this device the "Kindle Scribe (11th Generation)" in our Kindle database for consistency, and also because Amazon is likely to call this as such in future years when someone notices after they release future Kindle Scribe models.

Thankfully, other than the Kindle Scribe, the other Kindle models in the same generation, such as the "Kindle Paperwhite (11th Generation) - 2021 release", were named correctly.
