Latest Generation Kindle Covers and Cases

Amazon reports that the latest generation Kindle Covers and cases are still the #1 selling kindle covers on the market today. The covers are good quality leather, and even with the cover on, the Kindle 3rd generation can be put into a small purse without squeezing it in, something you couldn’t do with a coverless Kindle 2nd generation.

For an easy purchase without having to buy a separate book light, the Kindle 3rd Generation lighted Kindle cover is a good choice. The built in light slips securely out of the way, with no batteries to replace, better clips and fit than past covers that connect to Kindle. There’s adequate light for the entire screen, no looking for a book light, no clipping a book light to you Kindle and scratching or damaging it, the book light LEDs point down towards the screen so you’re not blinded with bright lights in your eyes.

Drawbacks are that the cover doubles the weight of the Kindle 3 in your hand. Another drawback is the book light stays in one corner and doesn’t move around the Kindle and uses more Kindle battery life, as it draws it’s power from the Kindles Battery. The battery life depletes noticeably as you use the light especially if you keep the wireless turned “On”. With a full charge and using the Kindle with the light on for 2 hours, the following day the battery looks to be down about 15%. At this rate of use with no wireless turned “On” and regular reading in the daylight, estimate the battery will need charging after approximately 1 week.

With the added weight of the cover, the total weight of the Kindle 3 and cover is almost 1 lb. Having the extra Kindle protection and the piece of mind of having it, plus a handy light whenever you need it, is worth the trade off.

Available at Amazon.
