New Amazon Kindle Cover – LED Built In

Kindle Cover 2

One of the interesting items hidden in the announcement about the new Wi-Fi Kindle e-Readers was the new Kindle cover with built-in LED light.

Kindle Light Cover Features:

  • Light draws power from Kindle device. No batteries required
  • Built-in, retractable LED reading light pulls out from the back cover when needed, and slides away to become invisible when not in use
  • Stylish genuine leather exterior. Soft, grey, microfiber suede interior protects Kindle

    Here’s a few photos of the new cover:

    I’m definitely drawn to this new cover (I’m often drawn to lights though) mostly because it looks like a good design for protecting the Kindle and it has a built-in LED light that tucks away and draws power from the Kindle itself instead of requiring its own battery.  How much of a power draw on the Kindle this will be remains to be seen.

    You can pre-order the new LED Light Cover at Amazon now – should be available a few days or so after the Kindle is available.
