As eBook readers become increasingly popular at home and on the go, they need to be protected and made easier to use with eBook accessories. There are several popular brands of eBook readers, so when considering the top 10 accessories, buyers should take into account the model of their device, as some accessories may be only compatible with a particular brand. Buyers should determine whether they want to protect just the screen or the complete outer shell of the eBook reader. Other accessories that enhance the user experience include a stylus, keyboard, and eBook reading light.
1 Cases and Covers
Cases and Covers

Cases and covers protect eBook readers from the elements, as well as dust and spills. Many cases also double as stands, which make it easy to operate the device hands-free. Cases come in leather and polyurethane, and in a wide range of colours, from conservative black to vibrant green. Buyers should check whether the case is specially designed to accommodate a Kindle, PlayBook, iPad, Nook, or another brand of eBook reader or tablet.

Regardless of whether a buyer has a case or cover, an eBook screen protector is necessary. Even scratch-resistant screens are prone to damage, so protecting the display can extend the life of the device. Screen protectors typically consist of a thin, clear adhesive that is pasted over the screen area.


3 Keyboard

Some eBook readers and tablets have a built-in keyboard, but users may prefer to have a separate accessory. An eBook Bluetooth keyboard is the perfect wireless option. Some cases have integrated keyboards, which is an ideal space saving choice.


4 Stylus

Many manufacturers include a stylus with an eBook reader to allow users to be more precise when operating the touch screen. Buyers can also purchase an enhanced version, such as a rubber-tipped stylus for capacitive touch screens or a hard plastic stylus for resistive touch screens. Capacitive touch screens detect which area of the display the user is touching by using electrical properties of the fingers, whereas resistive touch screens work by detecting pressure. Most medium to high-end eBook readers and tablets have capacitive touch screens.


5 Car Charger

9 Reading Light

Many eBook readers are backlit, but this may not be sufficient illumination for some users. Buyers can find an eBook reading light to provide a stronger beam of light. These accessories are usually LED lights with a base clip that attaches directly to the device, which makes them fully portable. Some cases also come with built-in lights.


10 Batteries

Some eBook readers and tablets do not have replaceable batteries, but for those that do, it is useful to purchase a battery when the existing version is no longer holding a charge. Buyers who cannot readily change their batteries can consider a power bank for their rechargeable cells, and then access the power via a USB connection.
