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
I would suggest that you buy the cover from Argos it is currently £24.99 (29.08.2013).
The case is extremely solid and the Kindle fits perfectly. I'm not sure if the design has changed a bit since some of the reviews on here but the case didn't get in the way of the page turning buttons or the power slot at all.
The inside has a nice felt/microfibre lining and the hard rubber casing that holds the Kindle in place is minimal, but holds it very firmly. It's quite difficult to get it back out, so no worries about it falling out.
The light distribution is perfect also. I always worry about glare or being dazzled with this type of case, but the light is quite buried in its little post, so it doesn't blind you. The lighting is very even, and you don't have trouble reading the bottom lines. The light post won't be able to handle a lot of manhandling when it's sticking out, but it's ok if it's looked after.
The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because it has no clasp or magnet to hold it closed. It's not a problem when it's just sitting by my bed, but if I want to take it anywhere, it won't stay closed. I also think it's a little overpriced, but if it stands the test of time, it's worth it.
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.
Great accessory for the Kindle I love it.
