Do you know which model of Kindle you have? If not, use this handy guide to work it out.

New models of Amazon Kindle ebook readers are coming out all the time. We’re currently on the 11th generation of them which, confusingly, doesn’t relate to how many of each model has come out (e.g. the latest model released is the fifth version of the Kindle Paperwhite). How do you work out which Kindle you have?

To find your model, you first need the serial number from your Kindle, the initial part of which will tell us what we need to know.

How to find your Amazon Kindle serial number

  1. Whilst on the main library page, press the three vertical dots icon in the top right-hand corner
  2. Select Settings
  3. Now select “Device Options” and then “Device Info”
  4. The window that appears will list information about your device, including its serial number
