Sitting By The Pool With A Kindle Waterproof Case
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Today I went down to the neighborhood pool to let the kids take a swim. This was the first day the pool was open for summer so it was packed with folks of all ages. Some people were there to let the kids have a good time, others to meet some neighbors, and then there were those who just wanted to take in some sun rays.

One thing that struck me is the near absence of paper back books. Nearly everyone there who was reading had some type of eReader like the Kindle, Nook, or iPad. But, by far, the most common eReader people were using was the Kindle. The Kindle is certainly easier to read than the iPad out in the sun since no glare comes off the screen, unlike other tablets like the iPad which use a backlit LED display.

The other thing I noticed was a lot of people had a Kindle waterproof case protecting their device from splashes and other water mishaps that can occur around the pool. Of course, the Kindle is like any other electronic device and can be damaged if exposed to water. When an electronic device gets wet, impurities in the water can conduct electricity and cause a short-circuit. Additionally, a Kindle waterproof case can protect the device from sunscreen covered hands.

A Kindle waterproof case is an accessory for the Kindle that protects the electronic device from water damage. A good Kindle waterproof case will run from $20-$50. Some companies sell generic bag / sleeve models which can fit a variety of different eReaders, phones, and tablets. Others focus specifically on providing solutions catered to the Kindle. One of the things to look out for is that the Kindle waterproof case you choose is compatible with the version of Kindle you own.

One of the most popular covers is the M-Edge Leisure Kindle Jacket. You put your Kindle in this clear vinyl jacket and zip it up for protection. Another popular Kindle waterproof case is the KlearKase. This case is custom fitted for the Kindle 2 and intended to be a case you keep on all the time. The custom fitting is nice since it allows you to easily access and use all of the buttons on the device.

I encourage you to do some research and pick the right Kindle waterproof case for you. That way next time you head to the pool you can bring along your Kindle and enjoy a good read while soaking in some rays without having to worry about accidentally damaging the device.
