Is it safe for my kindle in an infrared sauna? Temps get up to 135 degrees for 30 minutes tops.

Probably not. Someone posted the operational temperature range for the kindle a while back, and though I don't remember what it was, I do remember thinking that it wouldn't work to take the kindle in the sauna. I have an infrared unit too.

Operating temperature as per Kindle Manual: 32 to 96 Fahrenheit.
So no

Are you kidding????????? Moisture/heat kills electronic equipment. Amazon does not recommend placing the kindle in a car with high temperatures.

Wouldn't recommend cleaning the screen in the dishwasher either.

Infrared sauna is dry heat, not moist.

But the heat will kill it anyway, so it doesn't matter if there is moisture or not.

This is the same guy who posted about reading his Kindle while having relations with his girlfriend.

It's not, actually. This guy's apparently serious (or at least not funny.) He'd have to be posting from two accounts, as just changing his screen name changes it on old posts as well.

I blocked the other sauna/girlfriend guy, and this post came up blocked although I'd never seen his name before. Either he's the other sauna guy or another member that I've also blocked.

I blocked this one and then checked the other thread - Perry's were still all visible.

I got a K3 when they first came out, and gave my original K2 to my wife. She sits in our whirlpool tub and reads on the K2 for a couple of hours at a time (I know it's over 100 degrees in the room when she does this).

So far it hasn't damaged the Kindle, but it's driving me crazy! It's just a matter of time before it goes into the tub...
;(

Kindle in whirlpool: seal Kindle in a ziplock bag.

I use my old K2 in a sauna. The Kindle functions well, but the battery life is good for only 8 hours of reading (not all at once in the sauna), wireless off.

Not safe for you, or the Kindle.

I seriously want to know if it's safe to read on the Kindle in a dry sauna. I know it seems like it wouldn't work, but it seems like you couldn't run an iPod over with a car either. Solid state devices sometimes surprise your intuition.

@C.W. Candor: You can try it if you like. There are operating limits defined in your user guide on your Kindle. If you go outside those, it is at your own risk.
