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.
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.

My Kindle feels very secure in this cover. Both the Hot Pink leather outside & the felted fabric inside feels very expensive. I fold the front cover all the way back to read & it fits nicely in my hand.
I love having the built-in light. The light is plenty bright enough to read even in a dark room. Sometimes there is a little glare in the upper right corner, but a slight tilt makes it read-able.
As many have stated, keep the wifi off or it will drain your battery quick.
It's compact and it beats keeping a cache of batteries with you! Also, for the cost comparison of a standard cover with clip light it's worth it just to purchase this instead.
My eyes get very tired reading things that are back lit. I'm not sure if Kindle Paper will tire out my eyes or not, but this LED light definitely treats my eyes well.
I used this case for several months with no issues at all. The kindle fits into it with small metal brackets that allow the light to use the battery of the kindle for power. My daughter happened upon the kindle and before I could run across the room to get it out of her hands, she had bent the kindle (like turning a page in a book) and snapped off the metal brackets. Since she had done exactly the same thing with the plastic ones on my original case, I had been very careful to keep this much more expensive one out of her hands, but alas, it only took her a second to destroy the case.
While it may seem that there is an obvious solution to this problem, it is still worth mentioning in my opinion, that simply "turning the page" will render this case completely worthless. Since I haven't seen another case that can come close to the design of this one, here I go, to spend another $60 on this one. And I'll keep it under lock and key this time ;)
