A major upgrade.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amazon Kindle Touch Lighted Leather Cover, Olive Green (only fits Kindle Touch) (Accessory)
The new model cover is a great improvement over the original,which I have owned along with the original kindle keyboard wireless for eighteen months.The old model attached with two gold contacts which aswell as passing current from the kindle,doubled up as the fixing within the cover.The lower contact bent over time and as a result I almost dropped the kindle from the cover numerous times.The new model is different,the kindle is cradled within the cover,locking into place with the contacts on the rear of the machine rather than down the spine.The whole unit is rigid and rubber armour is going to protect the kindle from knocks.The light is also improved,now mounted to iluminate from directly above.The old models light was on a flexible plastic band which lit the unit from one corner.I found this lit up not only the kindle but when in bed late at night,the wife.She was not best pleased with me and my night working body clock on more than one occasion.
All in all i'm very pleased with the new version of the kindle cover.
