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.
Light Your Kindle Any time You Need To
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.
Using the Cover
Your Kindle is easily secured to the cover simply by slipping it into the form-fitting
interior case and pressing it into place
that’s it! No other straps, latches, or catches are used to hold your Kindle firmly
in the cover.
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
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.
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 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 and
provides up to 80% of backup power to the Kindle. That’s almost three days of use
time for each hour of charging!
