Amazon's Kindle Lighted Leather Cover

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

Our all-new Kindle cover features an integrated, retractable LED reading light that lets you read comfortably anytime, anywhere. The high-quality LED light illuminates Kindle's paper-like display, adding brightness without adding glare.

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

In addition to securing Kindle in place, our new hinge system conducts electricity from Kindle's battery to the reading light - when Kindle is attached to the hinge, an electrical connection is formed that powers the light.

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.


Secure Your Kindle in Four Easy Steps


Read Comfortably with One Hand


Reading with the cover on, you can easily access Kindle's navigation features and power switch, while the rounded edges offer a perfect fit in your hands. The cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand. And the retractable reading light is easily accessible with the cover open or folded back.


On the Go

This compact cover is perfect for taking Kindle wherever you go. The sleek leather ensures the ultimate fit and protection, without adding bulk or weight. Our hinge system secures Kindle in place, and an elastic strap keeps the cover firmly closed for maximum screen protection. Simply attach Kindle to the hinge, apply the strap, and rest assured it will stay securely in place even when you're 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.

 

 

Read Kindle easily in the dark with Amazon's revolutionary, all-new lighted leather cover.



The hinge points are gold-plated to ensure a reliable electrical connection. No batteries required.


Read easily with one hand, with or without the light on.


Protect your Kindle on the go, and never be without a reading light

I received this cover as a gift and LOVED it. It fit my Kindle perfectly, it looks nice, and it protected the Kindle well when I put it in my purse. The light was perfect for me as I like to read in bed and my husband always wants the light out so he can sleep. However, after only two weeks of owning this, my Kindle froze and I couldn't get it to work no matter what I did. I finally called customer service and they helped me fix it; they also told me that my case was the reason my Kindle froze up. Apparently the metal hinges mess it up. Anyway, they did say they would credit the account that the cover was sold on. Even though I love the case, I wouldn't advise anyone to spend money on something that could end up killing the thing they got it to protect!

I'm brand new to Kindle, so can't compare to anything else. I gulped at the price of the cover, but wanted protection & a light, so went ahead & got it with my new Kindle.
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.

I've been fortunate to have my husband's LED clip light to use as a comparison for this product. Despite other reviews I've read on how the light doesn't illuminate enough of the page, I've personally had no problems with this. Infact, I think it illuminates far more than the LED clip-light. Not to mention, with the LED clip light, we're CONSTANTLY replacing it's batteries (which get pricey after a while)! Battery costs aside, having one less thing to carry with me is quite convenient and I'm fond of how the light slips right into the cover. In addition, I notice far less glare than the LED clip light.

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 husband got me this for mothers day for my kindle. I love it. Pink is my favorite color and the leather makes the cover durable and fashionable. The string that keeps it closed is easier to use then trying to button, latch or close in some other way. The light is the BEST feature on this product. I often like to read in bed or in the front room late at night when the glow from the TV just isn't sufficient for reading. You pull the light out from the corner and it curves to cascade light onto the text of your kindle. I now sit and enjoy my newest novel while the family watches TV or plays video games. Not having to turn on an overhead house light saves me electricity as well. The case doesn't cause the kindle to be too bulky it still fits nicely in my purse and I'm confident its protected from stray keys or objects that might damage the screen. Everyone loves to personalize their belongings and this pink case was just the fit for me and my kindle.

Words alone cannot describe how much I love this cover. The light fits right into the side of the Kindle Keyboard, so the LED just draws power from the Kindle itself, therefore, there are no batteries to change! Yay. The light is so well hidden and so small I originally thought I got the wrong cover because I couldn't find the light. That's how small it is. When it pops out, it's just the right size and just enough light to light the whole Kindle Keyboard. I have no complaints about this.

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.

This is the perfect addition to my kindle, the durable material made it able to withstand the dust of Kuwait and Iraq, the reading light works exceptionally great and enables me to read anytime that I choose day or night without bothering anyone around me. The kindle fits snuggly inside of the case making it easy to carry and charge. I love this case and will pass it along to my kids

I love my kindle, and I loved my Lighted Leather Case. Since there are over 8000 reviews for this, I'll avoid discussing the pros and cons of the case itself. I like it. And I'm about to buy my second, to replace the one my daughter broke.

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 ;)
