Best MicroSD Cards for Amazon Fire Tablets

Published

on

In this guide we’ll share a list of the best microSD cards for your Amazon Fire HD tablet. While Amazon’s tablets are great devices and highly affordable, they don’t come with very much storage. So, instead of deleting apps or games, get a memory card and expand your storage space.

Whether you got an Amazon Fire Tablet for the kids, or for yourself, they only come with 16 or 32GB of storage. That’s not nearly enough when you’re installing apps, games, and downloading Netflix episodes to watch offline later.

Our buyers guide will go over everything you need to know about microSD cards. Some cost under $20 and will give you a little extra space, while others cost a lot more but deliver improved performance and tons of storage.

Whether you’re waiting on a new tablet you bought during Amazon Prime Day, or are simply running out of space now that you’ve owned one for a while, you’ll want a microSD card. You can easily add an extra 16 or 32GB of storage for your favorite photos, or add over 256GB and add thousands of movies, shows, photos, apps and more.

Almost every Amazon Fire tablet I see family members use have no space left. They’re constantly rebooting them because games freeze, and have to uninstall apps or games whenever they want to try a new one. There’s no reason to deal with that when you can find great microSD cards for under $20.

With tons of different sizes, speeds, brands and more there’s a lot to consider. An SD card is one of the best accessories one can buy, but make sure you don’t pay too much. Most retail stores like Best Buy are extremely overpriced, so don’t buy one there. Instead get a cheaper microSD from our roundup below. Keep in mind that Best Buy will often price-match retailers, for those that can’t wait for online orders.

Our recommendation for most owners would be a 64GB card, as it’s a nice middle ground. You get better performance and more space without spending a ton of money. Whether you’re a power user that needs 300GB or just want extra room, take a peek at our favorite Amazon Fire HD tablet microSD cards below.

Samsung EVO+ 64GB MicroSD Card

Only a few years ago we were spending well over $100 for a 64GB microSD card. These days they're extremely fordable. In fact, they're cheap.

No matter which Amazon Fire tablet you have, we recommend getting a 64GB microSD card. It's more cost-effective than a 32GB one.

For around $20 you can get a 64GB microSD card and have nearly 100GB of storage for all your favorite content. Keep in mind the actual available space will be less after formatting, apps, photos, and the OS taking space on your device.

We recommend only getting a card that is "Class 10" or says "UHS-1 or UHS-II" if you want the best performance. Class 10 is visualized by a small circle with a 10 printed inside it right on the card. Our image above shows the "U" branding for UHS.

Look for that logo or an "A1" somewhere on the card. Samsung's 64GB EVO+ Class 10 card is first on our list. It's not too big and not too small. All while delivering fast performance for apps or games, and recording high-quality video. This is a great way to add more storage than you'll ever need without breaking the bank. If you do some research, an excellent card like this Samsung 64GB microSD chip can be found for under $20 online, or around $50-75 at local stores. So again, don't overpay.

    I bought a Sandisk Ultra 64GB class 10 (Recommended) The tablet says is not compatible.
    Why then a class 10 instead of other type. I am researching for a better option with higher capacity. I am going away so I will need the extra storage to view files.
