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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle cover with light 27 Aug. 2013
Colour Name:Black
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally I can read in the dark! 29 July 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Page turning can be tricky.. 8 Aug. 2014
By Robdood
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Disappointing. At first I thought it was due to duff Kindles (I returned two units which had page-turn buttons that wouldn't 'spring up' properly, making it impossible to use whilst in the case), even once I got a kindle with properly working page-turn buttons it still was very hard to press them while the cover was on.

Another review gave me a top tip of placing an old store / reward card behind the kindle (i.e. credit card style with no relief-style text) to lift the unit a tiny bit away from the cover so that the buttons could travel fully. Worked a charm!! I've ordered a replacement cover to see if that's any better, but I have a feeling it's just a fault in the very tight design - over the course of 3 kindles in a single case, they all had varying degrees of success - sometimes only a single button was hard to press; sometimes only a single button would click/depress properly!!

3 Stars as otherwise I think the case is decent; looks nice and the light works well and runs off the kindle's own power. Just a shame that it's SO snug that it's quite easy to get one which doesn't quite fit your kindle properly!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It works well 29 Jun. 2013
Colour Name:Olive Green|Verified Purchase
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).

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly designed light 8 Feb. 2014
Colour Name:Olive Green
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars long wait 21 Nov. 2013
By Claire
Colour Name:Wine Purple|Verified Purchase
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 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....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 12 Dec. 2013
Colour Name:Wine Purple
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.
