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

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality K3 Cover with Handy Light August 26, 2010
Verified Purchase
Length: 1:31 Mins
I bought the burnt orange color cover so I can spot my Kindle where ever I leave it easily--and hopefully not misplace it! The cover is good quality leather, and even with the cover on, I can slip the K3 into my small purse without squeezing it in--something I could not do with my coverless Kindle 2.

For an easy purchase without having to buy a separate book light, the Kindle 3 lighted cover is a good choice. The light works _great_ reading in bed. I can see all of the lighted screen just fine with the upper right corner a bit brighter. In any of the customer cover videos/pics on Amazon, the camera picks up and exaggerates the brightness of the light in the upper right corner. In real life, it's much less distinct and I don't notice it as I read.

January 2011 UPDATE: The VIDEO shows the cover inside and out without the Kindle, and how the light fits seamlessly and pulls out. I had to keep it short to fit with Amazon's video guidelines. I have a longer lighted cover video on Youtube that continues with connecting the Kindle to the cover, and a demo of using the light in a dark room--see the "UnrulyGuides" Youtube channel for that.

Pluses: Built in light that slips securely out of the way, no batteries to replace, better clips/fit than past covers that connect to Kindle, adequate to light the entire screen, no looking for a booklight, no clipping a booklight to my Kindle and scratching or damaging it, the book light LEDs point down towards the screen, so no bright lights in your eyes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cover blocked my wi-fi! September 20, 2010
By Reader2
Verified Purchase
I got my burnt-orange cover 5 days after I received my Kindle. Until then, my Kindle had functioned as adverised by Amazon. After attaching the Kindle to the cover, I was no longer able to pick up wi-fi anywhere. Also the battery charge would immediately go down, this witout using the light and with wi-fi off. My husband suggested removing the Kindle from the case, and behold! It works great without the cover! Problems solved! This is one item that will be returned to Amazon.com. Works great in theory, but not in practice.

Kindle Lighted Leather Cover, Burnt Orange (Fits 6" Display, Latest Generation Kindle)

I am one those people who saw the problem of inadequate light on the lower portion of the page.

I will not bore by repeating all the wonderful things written about this product in the other 5 Star Reviews except to say they are true.

What you need to know is this: If you get one as I did, a unit with the uneven lighting - call CS and request a replacement. Amazon is great that way.

UPS delivered a replacement about an hour ago ago - and the new unit is perfect - extremely even & usable light across the entire page.

Even the keys are lit - though not as much as the page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Burnt Orange looks better in person August 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
I received my cover and it seems like there is less "slop" when the K3 is attached to the hinges than there was with the K2. When I first turned on the light I was worried but when I went in the bathroom ,no windows :) it does a very good job. I can't wait to settle in tonight and read with it.

Using a food scale
the K2US with cover and mighty brite is 19.5 oz.
the K2US with cover is 16.5 oz.
the K3 with cover is 15.7 oz.

As far as the color goes it is beautiful. I agree with the other posters that the picture with the covers all standing is closer to the real thing.
It is a muted (not neon) deep fall orange.
The light is a little stiff coming out (but it needs to be , I hope it stays that way) and I am a little worried that those that aren't careful (children) when the light is pushed back in will be breaking them. You need firm gentle pressure to make it retract. It is not flimsy by any means, but something to be aware of if it were to be loaned to others.

I was hesitant about the price but looking at all the offerings I believe it is priced correctly for the quality and funtionality.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well made but too heavy September 19, 2010
Verified Purchase
I ordered this cover with my new Kindle and was disappointed. One of the main reasons I bought the new Kindle was because of it's small size and weight, but when using this case, it was too heavy and awkward for me when reading. Also, the light is a nice feature but I found it difficult to pull out when needed. I suspect that this might become easier after repeated use but it was a bit frustrating. The case is made very well and seems to protect the Kindle, but I returned the cover after a few days and bought the Timbuk2 Nylon Kindle Sleeve and love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars So amazed December 27, 2010
Okay, so I didn't ask for a Kindle....I was just so not sure...I love books; the smell, the opening of the cover...HOW could I live without these traditions?! Well,my husband is a doll. He treats me to the WiFi version and I'm thrilled...But then another package...and it's the lighted/leather case...The light is a strong little bugger! LOVE IT....and the case is so cooly engineered. The hinges slip the Kindle in so securely and smartly and I dare say: the cover acts like a book cover and in my hands, well, with the smell of rich leather, I'm at home with my Kindle. I did not rate "button" as I haven't a clue what that is...

While the leather is surely a good cost....I think the sturdiness is worth the price as is---beyond a doubt---the light feature.

I will always miss my own handwriting in the margins of (esp. non-fiction) books...but I do love the cover.

Alas, one idea for the Amazon designers: add a slip pocket for those of us who like to still have a place to slip paper with notes into.
