Kindle Cover With Light - The Smart Choice
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

For all of its wonderful features, the one thing I simply cannot be without is my Kindle cover with light. While Kindle e-ink displays have certainly gone a long way in perfecting the readability of ereaders, their lack of a back light for less than ideal reading environments is a great hindrance.

Initially, I used the same clip on reading light that I used with regular printed books. There are two problems with a clip on light. One is that the clips are designed to fasten to paper and cardboard which are spongy enough to compress under the pressure of the clip spring. This is how the clip gets the grip it needs to hang on securely. The second problem is that the clips can actually scratch the Kindle screen if they make contact with it and then get shifted on the screen. Guess how I found that one out!

What I quickly realized is the Kindle engineers designed the Kindle to be read in well lit rooms. Adequate light plays a crucial role in the beautiful e-ink contrast and visibility.

But if you have tried reading your Kindle in a shaded corner or outside during early morning or twilight evening hours, you know that it is almost impossible to read with any continuity. In reality, it becomes a huge distraction. What I wanted was a Kindle cover with light that was designed specifically with the Kindle in mind. Not a universal fix-it-all type of light. Just a simple and efficient design that would protect my Kindle when not in use and then provide a light that sets up effortlessly.

There are a ton of ereader covers, fewer with lights, and really only one or two specifically designed for the Kindle. I recently ordered a leather Kindle cover with light, and after much use, it has proven itself to provide exactly what I want.

This Kindle cover with light is made of high quality durable leather. It has a soft micro fleece interior that protects my Kindle screen from scratches. Best of all, it has a retractable reading light that can be positioned for the optimal reading angle.

Besides the quality construction, one of the design features I love about my new Kindle cover with light is the light itself. It doesn't require batteries. This is one of the problems I always had with my clip on lights. They didn't require battery changes frequently, but always seem to die when I was out and about with no batteries available. That's a big downer.

The Kindle cover with light that I own actually uses power from the Kindle itself which is one of the best ideas I have seen in a while. I wasn't even aware of this when I ordered the cover. When I was setting up the case and found that feature, I couldn't help but do a little happy dance after so many dead batteries over the years.

If you are considering accessorizing your Kindle with a cover or case, I highly recommend you check out the Kindle cover with light that is available online at a very affordable price. It is one of the smartest purchases you will make for your reading enjoyment.
