What is this EPUB to MOBI converter?

Different reading devices use different file formats. If you've got an EPUB file, you will be able to read it on your computer, but you won't be able to read it on your Kindle. This EPUB to MOBI will convert your EPUB file into a MOBI file with a simple click of your finger. Let's get our definitions straight . 

  • MOBI: A .mobi extension designates a Mobipocket eBook file. Created by a French eBook company called Mobipocket, the .mobi format is designed for eBooks. Amazon bought Mobipocket in 2005, and discontinued support of the .mobi file extension in 2011, replacing it with the file type .amz. 
  • EPUB: An .epub file is an open source file format that makes it possible to read eBooks on various devices. It was developed by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) and is short for "electronic publication." Today, it is supported by most readers, including computers, smartphones, and tablets. As of 2020, Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing will only allow authors to upload EPUB files — which it will then automatically convert into their MOBI format.

How to upload your MOBI onto your Kindle

So you’ve just successfully got yourself a MOBI file. That begs the question: what do you do with it now?

Since MOBIs are designed to be read on Kindles, chances are that getting your file on your Kindle will be your next step. There are several ways to go about this.

Send to Kindle by E-mail

Each Kindle is assigned a Send-to-Kindle e-mail address ([name]@kindle.com), so you can e-mail your MOBI file to your Kindle in a few easy steps. This is perhaps the simplest way to transfer a MOBI file to your Kindle.  

  1. Locate your Kindle e-mail address. You can discover this information by visiting your Manage Your Devices page at Manage Your Kindle on Amazon.com.

  2. Add the e-mail account to your Approved Personal Document E-mail List. To do this, simply visit the Personal Document Settings page at Manage Your Kindle.

  3. Attach your MOBI file to an e-mail and address it to your Send-to-Kindle e-mail address

  4. Hit send!

Load to Kindle by USB

For anyone who’s averse to e-mail, there’s always the old-fashioned method: using a USB. This is fairly straightforward if you’ve got a USB nearby.

  1. Grab a USB and use it to connect your Kindle to your computer.

  2. When the internal folders of your Kindle open on your computer, find the Documents directory on your Kindle.

  3. Copy the MOBI file from your computer to this directory.

Read on your desktop

Lastly, you don’t need a Kindle to start reading your MOBI. If you’d rather not make the effort of reaching for another device, you can always read the MOBI right on your computer.

  1. Download and install Kindle for PC.

  2. Navigate to your MOBI file in your documents and right-click, opening it with Kindle for PC.
