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.

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.

First of all, this cover is not nearly as bad as some of the reviews make it out to be. It doesn't feel like "cheap" plastic, nor does it feel like it's going to immediately disintegrate into a pile of rubbish. So let's start having a look at it in detail:

1) The back. Mine is very thin leather, formed around what appears to be a rubber-like shell. In my opinion, the leather on the back looks pretty good. It's tightly form-fitting, and form-fitted and bonded to the shell, so I can see where some casual users might mistake it for plastic. It is in my opinion, most definitely leather. Is it "quality" leather? Well, I suppose so, but it'd also have to be extremely thin quality leather.

2) The shell. The next layer would be what I call the form-fitting shell. It comprises the structure that makes up the back half of the cover. The kindle touch fits very tightly into this shell. It's certainly not going to fall out of there. In fact, it might not be all that easy to remove the kindle, it's so tightly snapped in. The shell tends to increase the bulk of the kindle a bit, which I actually like. It feels like it'll give me some shock/drop protection. Contrary to some other reviewers, I don't think it makes the kindle overly bulky. I think it gives a very thin device some much needed weight and substance.

3) The light. It's on a snap up arm on the top. There's no adjustment to it, it's either fully up or it's fully down. It gives off plenty of light to read my kindle in the dark. The light is at a fixed angle. It's slightly brighter at the top of the kindle than the bottom (it does after all, have to obey the laws of physics). The light is of course powered by the kindle's battery. That's your reason for buying this case and not some other case.

4) The front cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Better than Expected! November 22, 2011
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Kindle Touch Lighted Leather Cover, Saddle TanGiven previous reviews, I wasn't sure I was going to be happy with this product - but I couldn't be more pleased! The case arrived today. The fit is ... perfect. The unit is snug - without the distraction of elastic or exterior "holders". The light works brilliantly! It is comfortably bright, and covers the whole page. Better yet, it is always there and recharges with the Kindle. The leather is very smooth, over a rubberized/plastic gray case that matches the color of the Kindle. The stitching is FLAWLESS. The cover sits flush to the unit and is lined with a dark grey felt that also matches the color of the Kindle. It is so lightweight, I was amazed (probably because my K2 + case is considerably heavier!)

What this case is not, is a beautifully padded, high end, pebbled leather cover - although it does appear to be good quality smooth leather. Nor does it have a tab to keep the case closed (although I never secured the tab on my last cover, so that obviously is not a priority for me!) Further, given the snug fit, I don't doubt that getting the Kindle OUT of the case would be very difficult. If you like to change covers, and need to secure the cover as closed, you will not likely be happy with this product. However, for me, this cover meets my needs better than any other I've found so far.

I do most of my reading at night, and since the Kindle Touch is not back lit, a lighted cover is a must. Having owned Amazon's Kindle Lighted Leather Cover, Black (Fits Kindle Keyboard) with my previous Kindle, I knew exactly what I wanted in a cover and while the new cover has some advantages, Amazon really missed the boat as far as design:

FORM FACTOR - The back of the case is made of molded plastic that fits perfectly to the Kindle Touch. You slide it in and it clips in place. Terminals on the back of the Touch connect to terminals on the case to provide a connection for the light (the light draws power from the Touch itself). The Kindle Keyboard cover had a mildly annoying elastic strap to keep the cover closed. The Touch cover omits the strap completely, and there is nothing holding the cover closed but gravity. This isn't too much of an issue for me because I can't really see too many instances where the cover will fly open, I just find it strange the developers didn't address this. The Kindle Touch actually has a thin piece of metal underneath 90% of the bezel. If you hold a magnet up to it it will attract. It would not have been difficult at all for Amazon to insert a small magnet into the cover so it at least draws it closed and prevents it from flying open. But again, I can't really see myself having an issue with the cover coming open a lot. The Kindle Keyboard cover did have an issue with people accidentally opening it the wrong way, breaking the terminals off in the hinge. I actually ordered a clip for my cover to prevent that from happening. This isn't an issue with the current design. My biggest gripe about the form factor is that it is too snug of a fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Elegant Solution - I am NOT "Disappointed" December 3, 2011
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
After reading all the disheartening and negative reviews here -- and ordering the Kindle Touch Case with Light ANYWAY as I felt it was the only real option -- I have to share a different opinion:

I was prepared to be disappointed -- I am pleased.

I had the last generation Kindle 3 and case with light.

This new Touch version is an extremely positive evolution in terms of overall aesthetics and design. The overall look and feel of product carry a lot of weight with me. I am generally attracted to the Apple brand/ design aesthetic.

I loved the functionality of the old Kindle 3 and case, but honestly felt it was a bit clunky and felt old-fashioned -- like a prop you'd see on a 1980's sci-fi rerun.

This new Touch case is truly "slick" -- not just as in the tactile surface of the case itself -- but in the use of the word that describes something clever, expensive, and thoughtful.

The leather materials *are* thin -- but not in a "cheap" way, in a very slim, streamlined, elegant way.

There is no feeling of bulk to the case at all.

The light bulb itself is comparable to older versions in terms of performance, but more pleasingly and simply articulated -- built into -- the design of the case itself.

Everything about this feels like it was designed to be a seamless accessory to the Kindle.

It feels purposeful and intentional.

*The Rubber Band Thingy
The one thing everyone misses -- the "rubber band" to hold it closed. That was never a big deal to me. I don't really miss it that much, myself, I mean... there's not a single book I own that has a rubber band to close the cover. My wallet doesn't have a built-in rubber band. My laptop doesn't either.
