Amazon's Kindle Lighted Leather Cover
Protect and Illuminate Your Kindle
Our sleek, form-fitted leather cover was designed to be the perfect companion for Kindle. 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, 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 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, securing your device while providing easy access to all controls and connections. Two small connectors draw power from the device to power the attached light.
Our cover is designed specifically for the latest generation Kindle and secures your device without any hinges or straps. Simply place your Kindle into the form-fitted interior of the cover and then gently press the device into place.
Read Comfortably with One Hand
Reading with the cover on, you can easily access Kindle's navigation features and buttons, while the rounded edges offer a perfect fit in your hands. The reading light is easily accessible when the cover is open and the cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand.
On the Go
Thin, lightweight, and durable, this cover is perfect for taking Kindle wherever you go. The stylish, genuine leather exterior and form-fitting interior provide ultimate fit and protection. You'll also never be without a reading light, and since the light draws its power from Kindle, no batteries are needed.
Read Kindle easily in the dark with Amazon's revolutionary, all-new lighted leather cover.
The reading light flips out to provide an even light across your Kindle screen, adding brightness without adding glare.

So overall I do regret buying something so expensive because now the old Kindle combined with the cover has cost me more than a Kindle paperweight would have with much better reading experience in terms of reading in the dark.
What i am doing is giving a review of a prospective buyer in economic / value sense.
I am looking to buy the new Kindle, for that i was looking at a light accessory for reading at night-time.
The Kindle costs 5999 INR
This cover costs 3699 INR (at time of writing this review)
Total cost 9698/- INR
The clincher is that The Kindle Paperwhite Costs 10999 INR. Just a difference of 1301 INR. Hence i do not see economic sense in buying this product and can buy the PW and if i need a cover can get many options for 1.5k INR.
The product does look good and is cool idea if priced at around 1000 INR mark.
Will await a bit to get the latest Kindle when i have some budget to buy the same.
1. Give kindle a 'bookish' feel by adding a bit of weight and texture to the device
2. Give you an ability to read in the dark (by using the attached light)
3. Protect your kindle
The battery derives power from the kindle itself, and it is extremely bright. The amount of power consumed by the light is very less.
Two (2) things that could have been improved:
1. The led does not focus on the whole of the device. There is enough light to read at all parts but the spread is not even. The top mid gets lit much brighter than the rest of the page.
2. The price: the cost of the cover is more than half the cost of the device itself. It is a great add-on but is priced a bit high (especially when compared to the device itself).
Who should buy:
1. People who feel that their kindle is just too light or delicate
2. People who want to read their books in dark
3. People who want a hard-bound book feel (though it still remains thin) to their kindle
Who should not buy:
If you are buying just to prevent scratches or to just protect your device, look for other alternatives which cost less.
Here is a cover that integrates a light, optimally positioned for great reading comfort in dark places and at night. It will be a great companion to those who (like me) love to lie on the upper berth on trains to read during most of the journey. It draws power from Kindle, but being made of LED of sufficiently low wattage, it does not drain the Kindle power unnecessarily.
In addition, the strong and sturdy leather cover offers a substantial protection to the Kindle from scratches and breakage. It also have a very sleek look. Here are my observations:
1. This is a useful accessory if all what you can afford is a Kindle entry level product and not the paper-white (which has its own illumination).
2. Since it is manufactured outside India, and since such Kindle accessories are expensive, many Indian buyers will find it very expensive. Such people can shop for inexpensive covers and inexpensive led-based lights which are easily available in the Indian market.
3. If you can afford the price, then go ahead and pamper yourself and your Kindle for this is highly useful, well planned, and well-designed accessory.
