A shout out to all the book worms out there. Kabo Aura is the very first water- resistant e-reader to hit the market. Generally, engineers are so busy to make phones and laptops water-resistant that e-readers probably slipped their minds. Okay, so for those who are still unaware of what e-readers are, it is a device designed specifically to read books. It can hold thousands of books in the storage. One might argue that so can a book shelf or a library but can you carry them in your pocket? Well with an e-reader, yes, you can access thousands of books with a mere touch of your index finger.
IPX8 water resistant
Kabo – a Canadian company, recently released an e-reader which claims to be a smaller, cheaper version of the best e-readers available in the market. The added benefit besides being cheap and portable is the water-resistant function. Yes, it was water resistant before but Kabo Aura H20 is rated IPX8 water resistant, meaning you can submerge it in up to 2 meters of water for an entire hour! Ever wondered what would it feel like reading a book about aquatic animals inside a giant aquarium or a water park? May be now you can know for sure. Or just have a relaxing hot shower after a long day’s work and enjoy a book simultaneously, calming your brain along with your body!
Other features of this device are similar to Aura One’s, like the ability to change the color temperature of the screen, built-in pocket integration, a 6.8-inch screen, 265 ppi E Ink screen, and it weighs 20 grams lighter than most e-books.
Kabo may not be as popular as Amazon’s kindle but for an e-reader that is not a retail giant, it sure is pretty reliable. If the article was convincing enough to tickle the shopaholic in you, click the link below for purchase.
