Turning the page on single-use plastic

The exterior is made with over 85% recycled plastic, including 10% ocean-bound plastic—abandoned plastic waste that is on its way to our oceans. Over the course of a year we plan to divert over 200,000 plastic bottles from our planet’s oceans and over a million CDs and DVDs from landfills.

Redefining the bath-time read

Kobo Clara 2E is fully waterproof*. That means it’s always ready for unexpected spills or a relaxing soak in the tub. *Meets requirements of IPX8 rating. Waterproof for up to 60 minutes in up to 2 metres of water.

From your morning read to after hours

Kobo Clara 2E has a glare-free 6" HD E Ink Carta 1200 touchscreen with ComfortLight PRO to adjust brightness and colour temperature. Reducing blue light reduces eyestrain so you can stay in your story longer. With the latest E Ink technology, enjoy faster page turns and deeper contrast, plus the option of Dark Mode, another way to reduce eyestrain.
