Amazon's Kindle Lighted Leather Cover

Our new design seamlessly incorporates a reading light into the cover, so you can carry your Kindle wherever you go and always have a reading light with you. Simply pull the light out to illuminate Kindle when you need it, and slide it away to be invisible when you don't. And since the light draws its power from Kindle, no batteries are needed.

The contoured, pebble-grain leather (available in 7 different colors) keeps your Kindle safe and secure, while the soft charcoal microfiber interior protects the screen from scratches. The cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand.


The built-in, retractable LED light pulls out to illuminate Kindle, and slides away when not in use.


Never Be Without a Light

Our all-new Kindle cover features an integrated, retractable LED reading light that lets you read comfortably anytime, anywhere. The high-quality LED light illuminates Kindle's paper-like display, adding brightness without adding glare.

A permanent part of the cover, the reading light is located in the top right-hand corner of the back cover. When needed, simply pull the light out and it automatically illuminates, eliminating the need for a separate power switch. To turn the light off, slide it back in to the corner of the cover.

Since the light is powered by Kindle's battery, no batteries are needed.

 

How It Works

In addition to securing Kindle in place, our new hinge system conducts electricity from Kindle's battery to the reading light - when Kindle is attached to the hinge, an electrical connection is formed that powers the light.

The cover's hinge points are gold-plated, to ensure a reliable electrical connection. Gold is used because of its ability to make good electrical contact even with low force, and for its corrosion resistance.


Secure Your Kindle in Four Easy Steps


Read Comfortably with One Hand


Reading with the cover on, you can easily access Kindle's navigation features and power switch, while the rounded edges offer a perfect fit in your hands. The cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand. And the retractable reading light is easily accessible with the cover open or folded back.


On the Go

This compact cover is perfect for taking Kindle wherever you go. The sleek leather ensures the ultimate fit and protection, without adding bulk or weight. Our hinge system secures Kindle in place, and an elastic strap keeps the cover firmly closed for maximum screen protection. Simply attach Kindle to the hinge, apply the strap, and rest assured it will stay securely in place even when you're on the go.

You'll never be without a reading light, and since the light draws its power from Kindle, no batteries are needed.



Amazon’s official Kindle lighted cover features contoured, pebble-grain, cowhide leather available in 7 different colors.

 

 

Read Kindle easily in the dark with Amazon's revolutionary, all-new lighted leather cover.



The hinge points are gold-plated to ensure a reliable electrical connection. No batteries required.


Read easily with one hand, with or without the light on.


Protect your Kindle on the go, and never be without a reading light

Have a good scale and have now seen all cover colors, so here's data to help you pick. VERY well made cover.

Weights are for the cover only, not including the Kindle:
Cover without light -- 170 grams or 6 ounces
Cover WITH light -- 240 grams or 8-1/2 ounces
Only you know whether the 2-1/2 ounce difference in weight is worth carrying all the time to have a light always at hand.

The most accurate depiction of the cover colors is the photograph at the bottom of the sales page.
Burnt Orange -- same shade as a basketball
Burgundy Red -- closer to a vibrant brick red as it has no purple overtone
Steel Blue -- pure grey blue which shows well on web page
Hot Pink -- deeper shade than it appears anywhere but photograph
Green -- picture a Granny Smith apple
Brown -- very deep brown, not a chocolate color

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it, but.... August 29, 2010
Verified Purchase
In the past, I have had several different kinds of covers for my Kindles. I have ended up with a Bobarra cover both times, because they were lightweight and so so pretty. When I saw this Amazon red Kindle cover on the site, I liked the look of it so I got it.

There are good things and not-so-good things about it. Overall, I am pretty happy with it. It is very pretty, compact, and most importantly, it holds the Kindle securely and it won't slide out. Plus, and the biggest plus, it has a light that pulls out from the top right-hand corner. The light is powered by the Kindle (it only lights up it it's pulled out and the Kindle is powered on), so you don't have to worry about cords or batteries. For this reason alone I recommend this cover, especially if you do a lot of reading in bed at night.

So my reservations? It's very heavy. Perhaps that's what's necessarily to keep the Kindle secure, and to also have that pull-out light as an accessory. But a big part of the wonderfulness that is the new Kindle 3 is that it is so lightweight. Well, not with this cover.

Secondly, the light comes out from the top right corner of the cover, and it does not uniformly light up the screen. In particular, the bottom left portion get the least amount of light. Note that I can still read the Kindle at night, but it's a little annoying.

If you want an attractive cover with a pull-out light that requires no batteries or cords, this is your cover. If you got your Kindle because you wanted something that weighed very little, or if you want a strong light on the screen for nighttime reading, you may want to go with something else.

Overall - I am happy with it, but just want you to know it has its problems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but price too much! October 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
I could not give this product 5 stars even though I like it. For two reasons: One, the price is not worth it. It is an awesome product, but not worth the $60 ticket price. Second, there is only one flaw with the light that I found: that being that it does not illuminate the lower left half of the Kindle well enough. If you are reading in the dark or a not so well lighted room, the lower part of the Kindle is just too dark. They should have added a smaller, similar light to the middle left side of the cover to assist with this problem. Overall, it is good. But they could have lowered the price by $20. Also a note for those looking to protect their Kindle from the outside elements.....this product is not for you. This cover merely closes, but does not zip closed. It would be better if it actually closes and protects the Kindle from the outside elements. If you are looking for something like that, then buy something that actually closes. Other than these few flaws, I like it. But I would not buy it again unless the price drops.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amazon can do better September 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
This product is customized for the Kindle 3 and is of quality construction. The problems I encountered are with the light. First, it is difficult to pull the light strip out of the case. This is a two-handed procedure, requiring putting the Kindle down, and the force required will break many a finger nail. More importantly, the light is quite uneven as has been pointed out by many reviewers, with relatively little illumination of the bottom half of the screen. Anyone over the age of 40, when light adapti0n is slowed, will have trouble with this lighting and it will be fatiguing. Fatal flaw from my perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Ask For A better Cover September 8, 2010
Verified Purchase
I'm REALLY glad i bought this lighted cover! I was so hesitant between lighted/non-lighted. I have recessed lighting in my living room (maybe dimmed) and a ceiling fan that has a light in the middle (maybe dimmed), just wasn't enough light, even if full blast so this cover is perfect with the built in light, i don't want to use it in pitch black of course because it is a bright light, but it's wonderful in dimmed recessed lighting for a laxed view. And truly i never relized that w/out a "booklight" how much eyestrain there is w/tring to read the pages/kindle! It of course like other reviews is heavier then the Kindle itself. But it doesn't bother me, I acutally enjoy it. Makes the Kindle easier to hang on too, and its really like reading a paperback book, the front flap of the cover bends back perfectly so you can use the bungy strap to hold in place. The light clicks in place when not in use, and when its in use it will click until turned on, and its very easy to put back in it corner home. The hinges.. LOVE the hinges. The top sliding hinge moves with ease. I bought an MEdge case for the K2 and basically had to force the K2 into the cover because the hinge would not slide.. needless to say i sent it back to Medge and order the Amazon cover. honestly if you looking for a cover go with Amazon! And the price for this Lighted cover really isnt bad! You'd be paying the same if not more for the cover + the light. So i dont know why people are complaining about the price. Alot of covers on here are 80+ and a light alone is $20. So your really getting the best of both worlds.
