What Is a Refurbished E-book Reader?

Refurbished e-book readers, like other refurbished products, have been through a series of testing and repairs. Once the e-book reader has passed these tests, it is placed for sale as “refurbished”. Refurbished e-book readers may sell for much less than their new counterparts.

The most important factor for Faircado in advertising buying second-hand items instead of new ones is the sustainability factor and saving the environment. Fewer new products have to be made and fewer raw materials are needed; as a result. Reuse of electronic devices also contributes to reducing e-waste. Before going on, let’s have a deeper review on e-book readers:

Imagine you could carry thousands of books at a time and access a library of millions more on a device that is smaller than a paperback, lasts for weeks on a single charge, and gives you a better reading experience than a tablet or phone. E-book readers, also called e-readers, make you step away from the monitor and give your eyes a rest. The e-book readers rely on e-ink screens to let you read for longer periods of time without getting your eyes tired, which is caused by a radiant LCD or OLED screen. They have very long battery life.

Basic e-book readers use monochrome e-ink (digital ink) screens to display text. E-ink screens look a lot like paper. Recently; on the least expensive models, it's not backlit. So, just as you need light to see a printed book, you'll need light to see e-book readers’ text.

However, most e-book readers now include edge lighting which lets you see in the dark, too. With each model, you can vary the intensity of the brightness as you wish. On the lowest light settings, you can read in the dark while your partner sleeps peacefully next to you.

Why Buy a Second-hand E-book Reader?

These days more and more people are trying to find less expensive ways to purchase the items they either need or want. To take just one example, e-book readers are becoming a very popular alternative to books, but more and more consumers are turning to second-hand and refurbished markets for these items.

Certified refurbished e-book readers are a good alternative, because they are tested and guaranteed to work. There are often returned e-book readers, which customers either used for a brief amount of time and sent them back or due to buyer remorse.

If you are thinking about buying a refurbished e-book reader, you are at the right place. At Faircado you have access to a large variety of refurbished e-book readers, with cheapest price and reliable sellers. The second-hand e-book readers we offer on Faircado will always be sold directly by a manufacturer, retailer or a professional reseller.

Final Technical Points We Looked for in Determining the Best E-book Readers:

Built-in lighting: Most e-book readers provide their own light for reading in dark environments. Unlike tablets, e-book readers use a side-lighting system that provides a glow across the screen, rather than from behind it.

Screen quality: Devices with pixel density of 300 dots per inch are preferred. It is the highest available in any e-book reader and what most models offer; anything lower will mean less crisp text and images.

Build quality and size: While most e-book readers are made of plastic, some feel better than others in your hands. Six-inch screens are the most common size, as well as the most portable and likely to be pocketable, so we prefer them.

Battery life and storage: Most e-book readers promise battery life somewhere between six and eight weeks; depending on usage, and offer 4 or 8 GB of storage. 

Other features: While not required, features like waterproofing and Bluetooth audio can make an e-book reader great.
