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
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
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.

You'll never be without a reading light, and since the light draws its power from Kindle, no batteries are needed.

The light does not work well. It can not seem to stay on. The lint from the inside of the cover sticks to the screen of the Kindle.
I strongly do not recommend waisting good US$59.00 on this product.
I love the convenience of the built in light, and I think the cover does a great job protecting the Kindle.
Yes, it adds a LOT of weight to what is supposed to be a lighter device. And at first, that bothered me. However, I realized I was not really reading that much at night, so I removed it and used a softer cover I had for every day use. BINGO, we have a winner.
If you read in bed, I'd suggest adding this to the Kindle at night...it's very easy to remove and will not damage the Kindle. This way, during the day (I do work and travel a lot so only read in the evenings), you can have this really lightweight and attractive device and in the evenings, the light you want.
I did notice of course that there seems to be unevenness of the lighting.
NO, REALLY? LOL...I mean, take out any light that you've purchased that clips on and tell me you get PERFECT even lighting!! IF you say you do, I'd like to know the brand, because I have TWO lights, and both do a good job, just not perfect and it's uneven.
I did read a review where someone returned the cover and got a new one and felt it was better, so maybe that's an option, but to be honest, I live in REALITY and understand nothing is going to be 100% perfect. It does the job and does it very well.
I would give it 5 stars if not for the weight, but overall, I'm happy with it. It's an innovative product that's convenient and you have to pay for that convenience.
I will look forward for a better lighted cover.
Another disappointing thing about this cover is the chemical odour, even after several weeks, the smell remains.
How does it work?
Attaching my Kindle was easy. There are some simple easy to follow instructions included (not like the Apple iPhone - I like the iPhone, but instructions are always handy for when you don't read them and then need too to know what to do). The Kindle attaches nicely to two metal clips and is held firmly in position. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the cover and the protection it affords my Kindle. On the inside of the cover is a felted material, which in my opinion protects the Kindle screen and isn't as harsh as if Amazon had adopted for a leather finish on the inside.
In your hands?
Light, positive and comfortable. Although the cover weighs something (don't know what) it's still light and sits nicely in one or two hands. With the cover attached it still feels like you are just reading a book.
