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.
Top customer reviews
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.
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.
This weighs far less than i expected and having used it on an aircraft whilst lying down..it doesnt add any discomfort reading at an awkward angle
TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.. its well worth spending a few extra pounds on this official product...HOWEVER...if you want it in black, ARGOS are selling it £10 cheaper....but they only sell black
I would suggest that you buy the cover from Argos it is currently £24.99 (29.08.2013).
