If you’re looking for an e-reader that doesn’t fall under the Amazon or Apple umbrella, Kobo is a solid option. The company today introduced the Clara2E, the successor to the affordable 6-inch Clara e-reader it launched in 2018. The new model is waterproof and features a case that’s made from 85 percent recycled plastic, which the company says it’s “more eco-conscious” about the e-reader (for comparison, the Paperwhite 2021 is made from 60 percent recycled plastic and 70 percent recycled plastic). percent recycled magnesium.) Kobo plans to source the material for the Clara 2E from plastic bottles found in the ocean with CDs and DVDs from landfills. At $130, the Clara2E is cheaper than Kobo’s other waterproof models and more compact.

Similar to the older Clara, the Clara2E has a 6-inch screen and a blue light reduction feature called ComfortLightPRO. It has an upgraded anti-glare HD E Ink Carta 1200 screen and a dark mode, making it suitable for both outdoor and late night reading. It has 16GB of storage (roughly double the original Clara) and is Bluetooth-enabled, allowing for easy listening to audiobooks.
