Amazon's Kindle Touch Lighted Leather Cover
Protect and Illuminate Your Kindle Touch
Our sleek, form-fitted leather cover was designed to be the perfect companion for Kindle Touch. 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 Touch, 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 Touch 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 Touch, securing your device while providing easy access to the home button and power switch. Two small connectors draw power from the device to power the attached light.

Top Customer Reviews
The light is conceptually a very good thing. Its integrated design is neater than any of the other available solutions and the power sharing with the device itself is definitely preferable to batteries. The distribution of light is slightly uneven, providing a bit less coverage in the upper corners, but what you get is certainly powerful enough to read by in an otherwise darkened room. The angle leaves a little bit to be desired as it tends to shine in your eyes and there's no way to adjust this. The shared power source means that there is a small amount of additional battery drain, but assuming this goes the same way as its slightly smaller sibling, the drain is not as much as leaving wireless connectivity on.
The case is neat and pocket-friendly (unless you're talking about the pocket where your money is kept! - since at just under 30% of the price of a 3G Kindle Touch, and 45% of the wi-fi version this doesn't come cheaply), but it doesn't feel anything like as robust as the Kindle Keyboard case. Instead, the leather is the same smooth leather as on the baby Kindle's cover.Read more ›
Things I like:
The colour - perfect shade of purple for me.
It's nice and sleek - but think I might prefer a bit chunkier for a little more protection.
The light is way better than the keyboard one I have - this light is less likely to light up areas across the other side of the room on this one!
Things I don't like:
It's a bit flimsy.
There's no kind of closure - I have had to resort to using an elastic band.
It's far too expensive for what I received - I honestly thought it would have been a whole lot better for the price I paid. I'll score it just 3 stars I'm afraid. :o(
I can't get over the fact that the previous cover felt like supple leather and this feels like someone made it at home. At this price I wouldn't advise buying it especially if you had the old Kindle 3G leather cover and are expecting this one to be at least as good. Which it isn't. By some measure.
At first I thought the kindle didn't fit in properly in the pouch. After a bit of adjusting here and there, it slotted perfectly. Sure it's pricey! But if you have something as pricey as a kindle then I think it deserves the best protection there is.
Love the light as well!
Now with this latest version, you have corrected the lighting issue to some degree by moving it to the centre top of the case but have bizarrely dispensed with two of the best aspects of the original - i.e. the textured leather feel and the simple elastic closing device. The latter, particularly, could have been enhanced by a magnetic clip as many have suggested but as it was it was still fine and certainly better than nothing at all which is what you have now given us. So, as a result, we have a lower quality product yet (predictably) still no reduction in price.
Please, Amazon... You would be well advised to listen to what your customers want. Even those giving 4 and 5 star reviews are saying the same thing. You have enough adverse press at the moment. Might be nice to show there's another side.
I will be replacing my damaged Kindle but I'm not investing such a huge amount of money in a cover that simply isn't worth it.
