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.

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.

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.

It does work nicely as a Kindle protector and light, but I hoped for better value for money. Although the case itself seems robust enough, the light attachment is a bit flimsy and does not sit flush with the case.

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.

The idea is good but the reality in my experience is that the cover actually fits quite poorly. The edges of the cover interfere with the page forward buttons meaning that holding the kindle in one hand and forwarding the pages is difficult as the pressure required to press the buttons is too excessive.

I sent the original one back only to receive another one with the same problem. I have now had to adapt the cover myself by packing the rear of the cover with old plastic store cards to allow the buttons to sit slightly proud of the cover. I also find the light a bit too bright as it virtually illuminates the whole room rather than just the Kindle.
