Hold the phone. Stop the press. Put down that sandwich. We’ve just made a startling discovery.
You can now buy accessories for the Kindle! And we’re not talking colourful cases and cleaning fluids – they’ve been around ages. We’re talking about high-tech peripheral gadgets to improve your Kindle-reading experience. And lighting the way for others to follow is the SolarKindle Lighted Cover.
Cocking a snook to our Apple-flavoured overlords, this smart looking polyurethane number is a protective case, a reading light, and a backup battery in one. Plus (as you might have guessed) it’s solar powered! Just leave it out during daylight hours and it’ll soak up enough juice to power your kindle for three times your usual reading time – even if that takes you into the wee small hours.
Perfect for late night reading sessions
Indeed, once the great orb in the sky goes down, the SolarKindle will provide you with all the light you need. Just flip out the 800 lux LED reading light and you can keep up with your reading no matter where you are, or how late it gets.
And the best part is, it won’t draw power from your kindle. So even if the worst should happen and the SolarKindle runs out of juice, the Kindle inside can keep going. Not that this’ll ever happen, of course. A handy LED battery indicator will keep you posted on the SolarKindle’s battery power with a simple traffic light system: Green for great, red for... erm, dead.
Simply clip into the case
Inside the leather-effect case your Kindle is not only protected, it’s also easier to hold. And it adds barely anything to the reader’s bulk. So it’s just as easy to slip into a bag or case. Now all you need is a little sunshine.
