Product 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.

This cover is perfect for the Kindle. It slots in easily and the cover does not obstruct the buttons on either side of the Kindle.

I would suggest that you buy the cover from Argos it is currently £24.99 (29.08.2013).

I had a Kindle before the back lit version came out. I wasn't going to purchase another Kindle so I have always had to read in the daylight or with the light on in the evening. I read a lot. I am going on holiday so I thought I would buy a cover to protect the screen on the journey. I didn't know until I went to buy this that a lighted cover even existed. The mini light works really well lighting the whole screen and the actual leather cover is light and does exactly what I wanted it to. I recommend one of these covers to anyone who has the original Kindle.

I bought this cover so that I could read in the dark without waking other sleepers. It works very well giving a good light fairly evenly across the whole screen. Furthermore it seems to use very little battery power.

Colour Name: Wine Purple Verified Purchase
I think this case is top notch, BUT, the colour inside is grey like the old kindle, and the kindle 5th generation I have is black, so it looks a bit mismatched which is disappointing (though not the end of the world).

The light gives a nice spread across the text and even when I have the bedside light on, or in a dimly lit room, I find it's excellent to help focus on the book.

My only concern is the light does feel a bit flimsy, so I feel I need to be careful opening and closing the light incase I snap it, but it is bright!! In fact, one downside to it, is when I'm sitting in bed reading I have to keep the kindle slightly more upright so the light isn't shining in my eyes.

With that said, it's a lovely looking cover and it looks the dogs when it's sitting by the side of my bed, or on my desk at University. Also, and I can't verify this, but I think the elegance of this case when I'm reading from it, makes me look quite handsome and could possibly make me more attractive to women (I'll ask my wife and see what she thinks).

The light on this is so poorly designed that it shines brightly in your eyes unless you hold your kindle at an uncomfortable angle (with the top of the kindle closer to you than the bottom of it). It is also so bright and poorly directed that it illuminates the whole room, making reading discreetly impossible.

Had a long wait for this product as first delivery didn't reach me. On the 2nd order it arrived on time. On placing the 2nd order i must off changed colur preference as I received a purple cover but taught id ordered the black! Its not the best quality of leather but I like it! The light is excellent. No problems with reading in the dark except for when I try to lie down the light is so strong it creates a glare on my eyes minor problem.it just means adjusting the kindle angle a slight bit. qould love to have given this product a five but have to say for the price ita only worth the three....

The best cover for Kindle! Very happy with it +the build in light is great! Had different one before but it doesn't worth it buying a cover without light for this model if you like reading in the evenings and the nights.

A solid-feeling cover for my Kindle, and much less bulky than most, despite the little light. Wearing this cover, my Kindle slips easily into the crowded interior of my handbag, and I'm confident the cover can protect my Kindle - but why is there no method of fastening it closed? I'm currently using an elastic band when it's travelling by handbag, or slipping it into an old neoprene 7" tablet cover when in my rucksack or large bag.

The light is OK for reading, though a bit dim towards the last few lines. Good for "emergencies," but I've purchased an additional light for every-day use, having reached an age when I need ever brighter light to read by.

"Wine purple"?? I expected a much blue-er colour - this used to be called "burgundy" or "maroon." A pleasant colour, but not quite what I was expecting.

GOOD FEATURES:
Nice new-leather smell; nice strong, well-made feel; nice touch having a light always available if you need it.

NOT SO GOOD:
No way of fastening the cover closed; a very limited range of colours to chose from.
