Manufacturer's Description

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.



Using Your Lighted Cover



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.

Our cover is designed specifically for yourKindle Touch 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 home button and power switch, 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 Touch 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 Touch, no batteries are needed.

This cover provides the best fit for a Kindle I've come across. The Kindle Touch slots into a rubberised tray at the back of the case and connects via two small square metal sections on the device back. The fit for this section is like a glove and the protection afforded, excellent. The microfibre lining is appropriately soft and doesn't bobble, but it does get quite deeply imprinted with the Kindle's shape at an astonishingly rapid speed. The cover bends back easily for one handed reading. Perhaps even too easily. The spine is the only section of unreinforced leather on the whole cover and this tends to flop, so that you're essentially forced to fold it back even if this wouldn't be your normal practice.

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.

I must have got about 4 hours of use out of it before it the light no longer functioned. This cost me 50 pounds to start with. Atrocious Amazon, really atrocious

It's a pity about this cover. For the price, I would have expected it to be along the lines of leather quality as the one for my older keypad Kindle.

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(

Compared to the previous Kindle lighted leather cover (the one with the band), this is inferior. The leather is more like leather coated cardboard - very thin and cheap feeling. The fit is better than previously, and there is a good rubber rim to provide grip. The integrated light is powerful (perhaps too powerful if reading in bed at night).
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.

Amazon Kindle Touch Lighted Leather Cover, Olive Green
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!

Have to concur with other reviewers of both the standard and lighted leather covers. The original case for the keyboard kindle was excellent (although massively overpriced). I had the lighted version and the only downside I found was that the light was in the corner of the case and regardless of what was said in the advertising 'blurb' the lighting was NOT even and was brighter - as you would expect - in the upper right corner. Other than that, the case was sturdy and stylish and did the job very 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.
