Amazon's Kindle Touch Lighted Leather Cover
Protect and Illuminate Your Kindle Touch
Our sleek, form-fitted leather cover was designed to be the perfect companion for Kindle Touch. The premium leather exterior looks and feels great, while the soft microfiber interior protects your device from scuffs and scratches. No matter where you take your Kindle Touch, you’ll never be without illumination thanks to the integrated reading light. Our innovative design allows the built-in LED light to draw its power from Kindle, so no batteries are required.
Never Be Without a Light
An integrated LED reading light lets you read comfortably anytime, anywhere. The high-quality LED light is designed specifically for Kindle's paper-like display, adding brightness without adding glare.
A permanent part of the cover, the reading light is located just above your Kindle Touch and is optimally positioned to provide an even light across the screen. When needed, simply flip the light out and it automatically illuminates, eliminating the need for a separate power switch. To turn the light off, just snap it back into place or close the cover. Since the light draws its power from Kindle, no batteries are needed.
How It Works
Our innovative cover interfaces seamlessly with your Kindle Touch, securing your device while providing easy access to the home button and power switch. Two small connectors draw power from the device to power the attached light.

Top customer reviews
Case showed up an hour ago and as soon as it came in I attached my KT to it. I had original K3G with lighted cover before this one and its definitely a better design then earlier version. Kindle Touch weighs 7.3 ounces and Cover 5.4 ounces so its not light weight.
This case is a TPU style case which has hard plastic back. Leather is not of high quality like the premium brands that exist. I actually like the back design compared to the previous model as kindle is attached inside it and not connected via 2 clips on the side. Light position is much improved and provides more even light. Also its easier to operate then previous model. Price is still high for what it offers but not much u can do about it.
So overall I do like the case, Don't like the price and find this model much better than earlier one.
one thing to note is they no longer have a little strap that keeps the case closed. Right now its fine but not sure what is going to happen once i start folding the front cover back. It might become loose and start flapping too much. It would have been nice to have either a magnet or a strap to hold it closed
First impression: this cover is plastic, not leather! It may technically, officially be made of leather, but it sure looks and feels plastic, even more so than the case for the previous Kindle.
Second impression: I don't know what color it is, but it's not really purple. Depending on the light it's something between a deep purplish red wine, and a dark hot-pinkish purplish sort of color. Whatever it is, it's odd, and I was really hoping for a true purple.
After putting the Kindle in it's case, I turned it on and tried out the light in a dark room. It's certainly bright enough to light the whole Kindle screen, and covers more evenly than the old corner-style light did.
As noted by another reviewer, the back of the cover is relatively thick, and adds a fair amount of bulk to the Kindle. The front cover by contrast is extremely thin, not even as thick as the cardboard in a normal Amazon box. It seems to stay closed fairly well without any sort of latch (although a latch would be nice) and so far I haven't managed to figure out a way to pick up the Kindle and accidentally flip the front open. But once placed in a purse or bag, there is a risk of things slipping behind that loose front cover and possibly damaging the Kindle screen.
Overall, the Kindle Touch in this case is noticeably larger and heavier, but even so it's still an improvement over the even larger and bulkier Kindle Keyboard in a lighted cover.
Update - After a few days of use, I've decided not to keep this cover after all. Because of the curved back and flat front, it's very uncomfortable to hold with the cover folded back (the way I like to read) and I just can't get used to the strange color.
edging really helps holding on to the unit. The back is a hard molded case covered with a thin leather and the cover is a thin leather with a nice felt backing. The Touch seemed a bit small and thin to hold while reading and I like the extra bulk the cover adds. It isn't much more weight or bulk but makes the Touch feel easier to hold and more like a regular book. It doesn't add much size to the reader and the smaller size will fit even better into my purse than my former Kindle 2 did. This cover is much lighter and slimmer than the one I had for my Kindle 2. I like the wine purple color and I like the unobtrusive Kindle labels on the inside and outside of the cover. (Must admit though that this may be because my maiden name was Kindle.) The light will be great when needed. It is a bit dimmer at the bottom of the page but still very readable. I don't think there's much danger of it being broken off with the way I will use it and it fits very nicely out of the way when you don't need it. I love that it is powered by the Kindle and won't need new batteries. I didn't try to remove the Kindle once I put it into the case because I intend to leave it there. I gave the cover 5 stars as a rating for the cover but want to add that the price for it is at least $20 more than it should be. I researched a lot after buying my Kindle and decided to spend the money as this was clearly the best cover for the Touch and I will use it extensively but spending over half the cost of my Kindle just to protect it wasn't easy to swallow. One other thing, if your light doesn't work make sure your Kindle is turned on as it won't work when it's off or in standby.
Overall, the quality of the case is good, but the light not working makes it a deal breaker for me. Especially for the price they are asking for it. I am now waiting for a different cover, sans built in light, and an external light. Both products are cheaper than this case, and hopefully will work. I will not but this particular case again, and I would not recommend it to any other Kindle owners.
