Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Amazon's Kindle Lighted Leather Cover

Protect and Illuminate Your Kindle

Our sleek, form-fitted leather cover was designed to be the perfect companion for Kindle. The premium leather exterior looks and feels great, while the soft microfiber interior protects your device from scuffs and scratches. No matter where you take your Kindle, you'll never be without illumination thanks to the integrated reading light. Our innovative design allows the built-in LED light to draw its power from Kindle, so no batteries are required.


Never Be Without a Light

An integrated LED reading light lets you read comfortably anytime, anywhere. The high-quality LED light is designed specifically for Kindle's paper-like display, adding brightness without adding glare.

A permanent part of the cover, the reading light is located just above your Kindle and is optimally positioned to provide an even light across the screen. When needed, simply flip the light out and it automatically illuminates, eliminating the need for a separate power switch. To turn the light off, just snap it back into place or close the cover. Since the light draws its power from Kindle, no batteries are needed.


How It Works

Our innovative cover interfaces seamlessly with your Kindle, securing your device while providing easy access to all controls and connections. Two small connectors draw power from the device to power the attached light.

Our cover is designed specifically for the latest generation Kindle and secures your device without any hinges or straps. Simply place your Kindle into the form-fitted interior of the cover and then gently press the device into place.


Read Comfortably with One Hand

Reading with the cover on, you can easily access Kindle's navigation features and buttons, while the rounded edges offer a perfect fit in your hands. The reading light is easily accessible when the cover is open and the cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand.


On the Go

Thin, lightweight, and durable, this cover is perfect for taking Kindle wherever you go. The stylish, genuine leather exterior and form-fitting interior provide ultimate fit and protection. You'll also never be without a reading light, and since the light draws its power from Kindle, no batteries are needed.


 

 

Read Kindle easily in the dark with Amazon's revolutionary, all-new lighted leather cover.



The reading light flips out to provide an even light across your Kindle screen, adding brightness without adding glare.

I've had this cover for a couple of weeks now. Initially my impressions were fairly positive. But not wholly. I agree with the reviews that question the price tag on this and prefer the standard of the Kindle Keyboard covers. For the price, this feels flimsy and the presentation is poor. The fit of the Kindle is tight, but the slot it goes in is rubberized, so a tweak to one of the corners of the case releases it. The light is OK. The power-sharing with the kindle is excellent. NO BATTERIES!!!! But the light is not even on the screen and shines in my eyes.

On receiving this I thought the fact there's no way to close the cover would be my biggest problem. It isn't. The biggest issue has been the lack of durability for the leather. It looks nice when you unpack it. The Wine Purple is a lovely colour but the leather is ridiculously easy to damage. Just using the case for bedside reading caused a number of marks: I have no idea how!! And one trip in my handbag has left nasty unsightly gouges. My coover is beginning to look like a teenager's school shoes. And my bag wasn't exactly crammed. It had my purse and keys in it, the covered Kindle and a couple of receipts. My keys are stored in a leather key protector, so there was nothing obvious you'd expect to cause damage.

Amazon, this case is poor. After nearly a year and a half of regularly carrying it around with me, my Kindle Keyboard cover seems close to pristine. After a couple of weeks the new cover is badly marked and I avoid taking it with me, as I feel I need a cover and closure for my cover. Totally impractical.

I preordered this cover at the same time as preordering the kindle. At the time I was aware I would have to wait to receive it and given an estimated dispatch date of the 22nd November, the date arrived and my cover was dispatched on time; as I still had a pile of paper backs to get through its arrival a few weeks after my kindle was not a problem, although I can understand others' disappointment.

Bought it when the colour was described as purple but the images fortunately give an accurate representation of the colour and I am very pleased with it (Had it been a more vibrant purple I would have probably opted for black).

Fits snugly and securely around the kindle as you would expect and does not interfere with the ease of using the device. I've read comments about people wishing it were padded but I feel this would then add too much bulk and extra unnecessary weight to such a sleek design. As for it not having a mechanism to keep it closed; personally I like the simplicity and this "book-like" quality. The light is fantastic and reading in bed the front of the cover can be held at an angle to stop any light escaping and disturbing your other half (This would be my husband's favourite feature)!

It seems like a quality product that I am happy to pay £50 for but I guess only with time and continued use will I see how it holds up.

My olive green lighted Kindle cover arrived this morning only 2days after I placed my order. I had hesitated before ordering because some of the reviews were not good but I was pleasantly surprised. The Kindle fits snugly , the cover and Kindle meld together almost to become one. All the controls are easily to hand and the light is so handy especially as no batteries are required. I am certain that if the Kindle were to be accidentally dropped the cover would give good protection. All in all I would recommend this cover ,my only comment would be that the price is a little high.

I wanted to make the leap into Kindle because I read a lot while commuting, but my concern was how long the device would last given my past history with expensive electronics!

Having a light was an obvious need but the clip on lights seemed so clumsy and would make the device top heavy, so this product seemed to be at the top end (price wise) in a small number of alternatives.

People have complained about the feel of the case - plastic-like seems to be the highest contributing factor. The case feels smooth, professional and stable. I can say that I have not felt I would drop it once, despite warnings to the contrary and I suggest that if you are using your Kindle with greasy hands is your own damn fault if you drop it.

People have complained that the light seems flimsy. There is a definite and satisfying click as you pull it out and I am sure that it is very well made. It illuminates the page well, though could have done a bit more in the bottom 2 corners. An extra bit of plastic would have reflected the light better that way, but it is a minor complaint. Note that if you buy this to read in the darkness after your partner has gone to sleep, the light is still very bright in pitch black. In a low light environment, however (where you would strain your eyes with a regular kindle), it is fantastic.

The rubber case fits the Kindle perfectly with easy access to all the buttons. I have not experienced the issues some people have had with covered the right hand page turning buttons. It is simply a perfect fit, like the Kindle belongs there. It is also incredibly secure. So secure, in fact, that getting the Kindle out (I lent the case to my partner for an evening) was really quite difficult. Not a problem if you intend not to remove it.
