Kobo announced that its first fully waterproof six-inch e-reader, the Kobo Clara 2E, will be available on September 22. However, you can Kobo. Pre-order it now from for $129.99.
Kobo says the new e-reader is the Rakuten-owned company’s first built from more than 85 percent recycled plastic, with ocean plastic accounting for 10 percent. These changes are part of Kobo’s goal to compensate customers for 100 percent of the carbon emissions associated with sending their e-readers. Made from FSC-certified recycled paper and printed with soy ink, its magnet-free packaging is also considered more eco-friendly.
On the features front, the new e-reader also differs from its predecessor, Clara HD, in that it supports bluetooth so you can listen to audiobooks. It also has 16GB of storage on board, which is twice as much as the Clara HD. Still, like the Clara HD, it has a 6-inch display that, on paper, should be free of glare, while also reducing blue light exposure when you’re reading late at night.
However, it’s the waterproofing, Bluetooth support, and extra storage that make the Kobo Clara 2E more competitive than its biggest rival: Amazon’s Outstanding New Kindle Paperwhite, Both are waterproof, but the ad-supported Kindle Paperwhite costs over $139.99 and comes equipped with just 8GB of storage. In contrast, Kobo says that its e-readers don’t come with ads, and the Kobo Clara 2e, as mentioned earlier, comes with 16GB of storage. Plus, the Kindle Paperwhite also offers a larger 6.8-inch display, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your preferences. Sure, it might be easier to read, but As we found in our reviewSome can be difficult to hold with one hand.
Still, the Kindle Paperwhite offers months of battery life, while Kobo says the new Claire 2e lasts “for weeks.” It’s possible it could last longer than that, but I won’t know for sure until I test the model, which I’ll cover soon in my upcoming review. stay tuned!
