5.0 out of 5 stars Much Better than Expected!, November 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Amazon Kindle Touch Lighted Leather Cover, Black (does not fit Kindle Paperwhite) (Accessory)
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.

Thank you for taking the time to review. My biggest concern was whether the light actually reached the bottom of the page. Apparently it does not! Thanks for saving me the time and tedium of buying and returning. I have an excellent goose neck light I used with previous Kindle. Looks like the flip cover, also cheaper, will be a better choice.

What about attaching a velcro circle to the inside cover and the kindle to keep it closed? May not look pretty, but it possibly may be an option.

It takes its charge from the kindle itself.
