can you elaborate on the battery life of your kindle oasis 2? i read about 30-45 minutes a day and i don't have to charge it for at least 2 weeks.

That would give you a battery life of about 7 - 10,5 hours. Sure, it is not the end of the world (that is within the range of a good android tablet), but it is quite bad compared to other ebook-reader.


The Paperwhite (and other 6" devices) lasts for about 6 weeks (based on 30 minutes of reading per day), which sums up to 21 hours.


The bigger 7,8" Pocketbook Inkpad 3 lasts 4 weeks (based on 30 minutes of reading per day), which sums up to 14 hours.

i'm sure it's longer than 10.5 hours. it was only a guestimate and i don't really remember the last time i plugged it in to charge. besides that, i'm sure if someone can do a full test, that adding up daily 1/2 hour reading sessions would not come out to be the same as daily 2 hour (or 4 hour, etc.) reading sessions.

The math showing why those do not add up to the same total is in:

My Oasis 2 is really bad compared to other ereaders. I have to charge it more often than my Forma or my Glowlight Plus 2, even though I use it less. It really is more like a tablet for battery life.

My Oasis 3 does not appear to have a magnetized back like my Oasis 2. I have a cover that magnetically sticks to the back of the Oasis 2 but doesn't stick to the Oasis 3.

You need to get a new cover.

I have this cover (fabric version**) from my Oasis 2 (which I traded in for the Oasis 3). In addition to the magnetic back (which doesn't work on the O3), it also has an adhesive strip that you can use to affix the cover to the Kindle. While the adhesive works fine, I can confirm that the front cover does not enable the auto sleep/wake feature.

**I don't think the non-fabric version of this cover have the adhesive strip, and therefore wouldn't work with the O3.

User reports confirm only Amazon's cases are compatible with both the KO2 and KO3.

I wonder why Amazon removed the rear magnets? My case also has the adhesive, but I really like the easy on/easy off magnetic attachment. I like to keep the case on except when I'm reading. Then I take it off and take advantage of how slim the device is. Sad.
