Before I got my iPad, I coveted the Kindle. My husband had bought me a Sony Reader for Christmas one year, and I was ecstatic and loved it…until I realized that it was nowhere near as convenient and easy to use as the Kindle. But my dad complains his Kindle doesn’t hold a charge very long, so I started poking around and found the SolarKindle Lighted Cover.
A pretty new product, the SolarKindle cover uses solar energy to charge a Kindle. Cool, right? But what’s even cooler than that is that under normal sunlight, it has the ability to keep a Kindle charged for up to three months! Can you believe it?
Under normal circumstances, a fully charged reserve battery requires only eight hours of direct sunlight…thatâ€™s almost three days of use time for each hour of charging!
Not only that, but the reserve battery runs an LED light for nighttime reading. We’re talking up to 50 hours worth of reading before the battery drains. But it can also be used to give extra charge to the Kindle if needed.
Don’t worry though – the cover still allows you to charge your Kindle in the cover using a power adapter or USB port.
But the cover doesn’t just keep your Kindle charged – theÂ form-fitted cover keeps your Kindle safe from damage without being bulky or heavy.
Priced at just under $80, it’s not a cheap purchase. But if you love your Kindle and use it all the time, I’d say the cost is worth it. Not only that, think of the energy saved, too.
What do you think? Would you purchase a SolarKindle Lighted Cover?
