Keep Your Kindle Safe, Powered and Illuminated
The first solar book cover for the Amazon Kindle e-reader takes an environmentally friendly approach to enhancing form and utility. The SolarKindle Lighted Cover is designed to look smart and feel great in your hands without being bulky or heavy. The form-fitted cover keeps your Kindle safe from damage while discretely adding functionality with a built-in solar panel that charges the reserve battery for the LED reading light while also providing extra power to the Kindle. And best of all, the reading light draws power from the reserve battery, not the Kindle, so you won’t have to worry about draining your Kindle’s battery.
Using the Cover
The cover’s built-in LED reading light is available anytime you need it, and provides unparalleled coverage and illumination over the entire surface of the Kindle, reaching 800 lux at the center of the screen. The reading light turns on automatically when released from its housing, and automatically turns off when pressed back into place, or when the Kindle goes into sleep mode. Most importantly, the LED reading light only draws power from the reserve battery, never from the Kindle itself.
Removing the Kindle from the case is just as easy – simply insert a small, thin, non-metallic object into one of the slots on the side of the case and gently release the Kindle.
Expose the solar panel to sunlight, or shade and your Kindle lighted cover will be constantly charging. When charging, the LED indicator light blinks green. Charging times will vary depending on the intensity of available sunlight, but a one hour charge in direct sunlight (100% sunlight strength) can provide almost three days worth of reading time on your Kindle. For optimum performance, use the solar panel to continuously charge your Kindle – don’t wait for the battery to run out of power before recharging.
You can even charge your Kindle using the cover’s built-in reserve battery. Press the power button once and the LED indicator first shows the reserve battery’s remaining power level for about five seconds. After that it’ll blink red while the Kindle is being charged. To turn off charging, press the power button again and the LED indicator shows the reserve battery’s remaining power level before turning off.
To charge your Kindle in the cover using a power adapter or USB port, use the USB cable that came with your Kindle and plug it into to the cover’s micro-USB port. Then, connect the cable to the Kindle’s AC adaptor or a powered USB port. After charging the Kindle, the LED indicator will blink green indicating the reserve battery is being charged.
Show-off Your “Green” Gadget Everywhere You Go
The SolarKindle Lighted Cover is the perfect companion for your Kindle e-reader. It protects your Kindle from damage while it’s stylish good looks, comfortable feel and eco-friendliness draw envy from everyone around you. With the built-in LED reading light, there’ll never be a moment when you can’t read your Kindle because it’s too dark, and the built-in reserve lithium battery provides 1,500 mA of power for the LED reading light, or charging the Kindle. With the high performance solar panel, you can say goodbye to running out of power!
A fully charged reserve battery requires only eight hours of direct sunlight (100% sunlight strength)and provides up to 80% of backup power to the Kindle. That’s almost three days of use time for each hour of charging!
