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

I bought my Kindle with this cover right around Thanksgiving and was absolutely thrilled with both. The cover was stylish and the integrated light was so convenient. I'd been using my Kindle on pretty much a daily basis for the last 6 weeks. But last night my Kindle suddenly stopped responding. I tried turning it off and on several times but when I turned it back on the screen was always blank. This morning I phoned support and the tech was able to walk me through the procedure to reset my Kindle. The Kindle device appears to be working correctly again. However, the tech told me IT WAS THE COVER THAT CAUSED THE PROBLEM with my Kindle and I should stop using it. He credited my account for the cost of the cover and said I could use that money to buy a new cover but I should NOT buy this same style or I would very likely encounter the freeze up issue again. Apparently the fact that this cover can cause problems with the Kindle is a known issue, so I do not understand why this cover is still for sale by Amazon.

I was very pleasantly surprised when I opened the package and inspected this cover for the first time. It's a perfect fit for the Kindle 3, light yet substantial enough, easy to fold back for reading, and just covers the corners on the Kindle, for protection, without any extra wasted space. The elastic cord has a nice little name tag for ease of wrapping, as well as a grove to fit it.

But the really amazing thing is the built in light. It's small and unobtrusive when in it's slot... you only see a dark corner and a little ridge, as nothing protrudes or looks bulky ... but when you grasp the ridge and pull out, a super thin light emerges, which bends a bit to just the right length and angle, automatically illuminating the K3 screen. This is just genius design. And to think.. it needs no battery, no cord, no storage pouch or pocket. It gets it's power from the K3's charge. It's easy to push back in, where it waits quietly for a chance to shine again.

I found the little gold tabs that fit in the K3 easy to insert and just as easy to remove if you want the K3 to go "naked" or in another cover... yet the cover holds on securely.

I love well designed, beautiful objects and this qualifies without compromise.

I just am writing this to warn others of this cover, it completely killed my Kindle and almost killed another one!

The hinges on the cover mess with the battery or something, and every time I would put the cover on the Kindle would freeze and short out, until it finally just stopped working. I had the Kindle replaced, and the cover did the same thing to my 2nd one. Finally talked to Amazon and found out it was the cover.

I do NOT recommend this at all, get a cover with no hinges!

I have had my kindle cover a short time and already the bottom "hook" that attaches the kindle to the cover is loose and slipping. Yesterday the kindle fell out of the cover completely. Overall the product is solid and good quality, but the "hook" mechanism is shabby.

Bought as a gift for my wife. She loves it!. About 2 years old and still looks and functions like new! This thing protects so well and has an awesome light built in that shines just the right amount of light for bedtime reading in total darkness. The light runs off the kindle's battery turning on automatically when slid out for use but also stays off and out of the way when not in use. Has been used extensively each an every day. No complaints what-so-ever!. Very durable and stylish.

I bought my kindle, and with it, this cover.

I love the light feature in the cover, and use it all the time. When I turn off the main light in the bedroom, I am able to see the pages of the book and read them easily.

Not only does the cover keep my Kindle clean and protected, but adds functionality to help me read.

I chose the green because it is the color of spring, and the Kindle makes me feel as if I am in the springtime of my life. It is a beautiful shade of green. The elastic band around the cover holds the book reader in place. It also keeps your Kindle safe from breakage, fingermarks, and provides something that is easy to see.

I lose things all the time, so this is important to me. This is an excellent product, no matter what color you choose.

EDIT: Last night I was typing in a note in my kindle. I couldn't find the right key until I remembered to pull the tab and turn on the light. It is one of the best functions of any book cover I've ever had.

I took a long time deciding if I should spend $60 to have the lighted Kindle cover. I read mixed reviews. I just received mine and I am telling you the truth, it lights just like the pictures show. The light is quite dull by the time it reaches the bottom of the page. I paid the price because I read in bed at night, my husband goes to work very early and I didn't want to have to turn a light on and bother him. I "can" see to read, but it isn't very comfortable. I am 60 years old, so that plays a little in it, but if you like even light, you are NOT going to get it here. I hope they eventually get around to putting the light in the center maybe that would help it shine better. I have to tell you, the Kindle 3G, I LOVE !! Another warning though, with it in the cover, it is pretty heavy for those who have arthritis or weak wrists. Because you can hold it without spreading your fingers to hold pages open, it is still better than using a book. The Kindle alone, I would give 5 stars to.
