Every once in a while you find a gadget accessory that you simply must have. And well, while I am not really sure what this one will say about myself I will go on record as saying I need to pick up one of these “Solar Leather Lighted Cover for Kindle 4″ cases. Just as the name would imply, this is a cover for the latest-generation Kindle and it has a light and is powered by the sun. It looks like this has been kicking around Amazon for about a month or so, however that being said — it was new (and interesting) to me and I thought it may also be new (and interesting) for you. This case does not come cheap. In fact, it is priced at $79.99 which is $20 more expensive than the regular leather lighted cover from Amazon. Needless to say, you sometimes have to pay a bit more when it comes to additional features which in this case happens to be solar charging. With that, while I go and check my PayPal account to see what the currently available balance looks like I will leave you with this — the feature list;
The first Solar Lighted Cover for the Amazon Kindle E-reader in the market.
GREEN solar power with the eye catch leather cover integration.
It comes with durable solar panel and integrated solar charging circuit to reach the best system efficiency and collect renewable energy effectively for extending mobility.
The dual-charging (USB/solar) reserve battery greatly extends reading time, and powers a built-in LED reading lamp having the best illumination and coverage available for the Kindle. These features allow users to continue reading comfortably for as long as they wish, day and night, indoors and outdoors.
One touch releases and turns on the LED reading lamp.
Optionally the integrated reserve battery can convert and transfer its energy to the Kindle main battery and extend reading time.
Integrated solar panel collects and converts solar energy “on the go”. One hour under direct sunlight can provide up to 3 days reading time.
