Thank you for your question.

After looking into your query, I can confirm that the Kindle Paperwhite comes supplied with a USB 2.0 charging cable and a quick start guide. In regards to whether this device is better, the Kindle Paperwhite does feature a built in light whereas the previous model does not. This would aid reading in the dark however I apologise but I am unable to advise regarding which of the two is better, please refer to customer reviews for further detail.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Answer(s)
I would advise you to go for any of the Kindles that use the e-ink display as they mimic the page of a printed book. No screen glare or eye strain. So the Touch, or Paper White

Avoide the Kindle Fires as they use LCD screens which don't perform too well in sunlight and bright outdoor light (it's also a lot heavier and less battery life).
