Which skin kit fits my Kindle?

NevSkins skin kits are cut to fit each specific model - so knowing which Kindle model you have is really important for a smooth buying experience.  
Kindle device model names are fairly fluid and evolve with each new model released.  It can be pretty confusing so we thought we would put together this guide to help you match up (pictures and model identifiers) which Kindle you have.
The models outlined here are up to date as at November 2016
Only models that NevSkins supply skin kits for have been included in this list

Summary

Overall, we find that checking the button placement ; logo position and device sizing is key in figuring out which model you have.   Please do not buy the skin kit you think might fit and 'cross your fingers'. 
It is important to us at NevSkins that you have a Kindle that looks awesome when it rocks one of our skin kits  - so please always feel comfortable to reach out and ask us for help if you are unsure.   It will be our pleasure to help you -- we recommend sending us clear pictures (front and back) of your device to help us to help you :)
