And when your battery does eventually run low, Amazon says that fast-charging capabilities allow the Oasis to go from a 0 percent charge to a full charge in less than two hours.
Amazon devices boss Dave Limp said: 'Ten years ago, we introduced our first Kindle with the mission of delivering any book ever written in 60 seconds or less.
The upgraded Oasis boasts a 7-inch illuminated screen, a long-life battery that can take on a full charge in less than two hours, and IPX8-level waterproofing that's created to protect the device even if it's dunked in a bathtub or a lake.

Amazon has been selling Kindles for 10 years now, but "waterproof" never appeared on its list of incremental technological advancements - until now. There's a new font size as well as bold settings (it now offers five levels of boldness), so you can customise the font as per your liking.
But if you think this means that Amazon has added a 3.5mm headphone jack to the Kindle, well, think again - the audio will only work across Bluetooth. The screen is noticeably bigger than Amazon's other Kindles, and the Oasis now feels larger than a paperback book, although it's still easy to hold, and at 6.8 ounces, it's lighter than the Kindle Paperwhite (7.2 ounces).
