  • QuestionWhat does ad-supported mean? Is glare free the same as paperwhite? Can this be used outside in the sun and not have glare?

    Asked by Ragdoll.

    • Answer ad supported means the lock screen displays a book title that you may be interested in. As soon as you open the kindle, the ad is gone, never to be seen again (well, until the next time you go to open your kindle) It's not a distraction at all. Sorry, not sure of the answers to the other questions yet.

  • Questiondoes this include wifi

    Asked by ajay.

    • Answer Hi Ajay, This device needs Wifi to be able to download books. Once they are downloaded to device, the books can be read offline. Wifi is needed, but needs to be provided externally. There are cellular models of Kindle Paperwhites and Oasis that will allow you to not need your own wifi to make this device work. Hope that info helps.

  • QuestionIs this the Kindle 2019 Model and does it come with an adapter? If not, can any adapter work?

    Asked by li.

    • Answer It is the 2019 version of the regular Kindle, it came with a cord but no plug. I set the cord aside and can't tell which one it is at this point, but as I recall it was a normal cord, meaning a USB-A male end and a micro-USB male end. The Kindle itself accepts a micro-USB male plug, if you are like me you'll have about twenty chargers laying around that will work with it.

  • QuestionCan I transfer books from my old, old kindle to this one or are they gone forever? If yes, how would I go about doing this? If I activate a new kindle will my old one no longer work?

    Asked by Blynsho.

    • Answer Yes, it should have happened easily, but didn't. However a long telephone conversation with Kindle rep got it done. Part of the reason for the phone call taking so long was a bad telephone connection and a rep who was a bit difficult to understand.

  • QuestionWhat is the screen made from ?

    Asked by Gene.

    • Answer Hello, Gene. The screen is kind of plastic feeling, but a bit more goes into the screen than just the top layer since this is an e-ink reader. There are essentially layers to the screen, but the outermost layer appears to be plastic based. I hope that helps!
