The Amazon Fire Tablet is a great investment, but it can run out of storage space pretty fast. That means it’s time for a microSD card.

Whether you have a Fire Tablet for yourself or your kids, you’ve probably noticed that the internal storage doesn’t go very far. You can easily fill it up with some games, a few apps, and media, which is a bit disappointing. Instead of trying to figure out what to delete, and how to micro-manage the storage, why not make things easier and add a 64GB SanDisk microSD card so it can hold more?

Cheap and cheerful

Samsung 32GB Evo Plus microSD

This high-performance card offers transfer speeds of up to 80MB/s, and they’re built to last. These cards are water-, temperature-, magnetic-, and even X-ray-proof. At under $15, that’s hard to beat.

Our top brand name pick

SanDisk 64GB microSD

With 64GB of extra storage, you’ll easily be able to install a ton of new apps, save music and movies locally to access whenever you want, and much more. It’s hard to find a much better value than this microSD card.

A budget beauty

Silicon Power 64GB microSD

Silicon Power’s 64GB microSD offers speeds you’d expect out of a memory card for this price, with nothing crazy that makes it stand out. It can work in a variety of devices and comes with a lifetime warranty, so you shouldn’t have to worry much about it.

All-in-one

PNY Elite 128GB microSD

PNY makes a variety of different sizes at different price points, and the 128GB sits at a pretty sweet spot. For $40, you can load tons of movies, endless amounts of apps and pictures, and almost never have to worry about filling it up. It also comes with a free OTG reader for your phone and computer.

The Big Kahuna

SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSD

200GB is the largest capacity that the Fire Tablet is meant to use, and if you tend to burn through storage with tons of local music, movies, and offline videos, this is a nice option to have.

$44 at Amazon

There are plenty of storage sizes to fit your Fire Tablet’s needs, but I think that SanDisk’s 64GB card is the best of all worlds. It offers plenty of storage space, incredible speed, and comes at a great price. Happy storing!
