M-Edge e-Luminator lights up your Kindle
The Amazon Kindle comes with decent black leather case, but it doesn’t do a very good job of holding the device securely in place when the front flap is opened. There is also no backlighting on the Kindle so you need good lighting to read with the device. M-Edge has two solutions that integrate with each other to address both of these issues and I was pleased to finally find such an elegant solution.
M-Edge Genuine Leather Executive Jacket for Kindle
The M-Edge Executive Leather Jacket is available in a number of colors and finishes. The smooth Mocha model was sent for evaluation and came wrapped in plastic.
Securing strap on the jacket
There is a high quality leather strap that slides into the thin pocket on the front of the case to keep your Kindle in place as you carry your ebook reader.
Opening up the Executive Leather Jacket
Inside you can see there are pockets on the left, a pen holder in the spine area, and four straps/loops that secure the Kindle in place on the right side.
Left side pockets
There are several different sized pockets on the left side that you can use to carry SD cards, business cards, and more.
Upper left strap/loop and pen holder
The straps are made of leather to securely hold the Kindle in place. An elastic loop is available to slide a pen in place.
Upper right strap
The upper right strap is a bit different because it is designed to let you slide it on and off to access the power and wireless switches on the Kindle. There is nylon and leather on this strap.
View of the upper right
Here you can see the loop fits over the Kindle’s upper right corner.
Kindle mounted on the right side
You can see that the Kindle is fully accessible when placed in the M-Edge Executive Leather Jacket.
A classy logo is embedded on the back of the Leather Jacket.
Full back view
Here you can see the back view and how the consistent center strap design extends all around the case.
Top view of the closed jacket
The Kindle is well protected in a classy case.
Bottom view of the closed jacket
All ports and switches are accessible on the Kindle when it is placed into the Executive Leather Jacket.
e-Luminator light kit
You get a battery with the e-Luminator light and can see how the unit is presented. You will need some kind of case to hold the large securing bar and the M-Edge case are designed perfectly to support this light solution.
An Energizer A23 battery is included with the light. I haven’t had to replace it yet and will need to read for many more hours I imagine before a replacement is needed.
Sliding the e-Luminator support into the case
The large plastic support bar slides into the upper right pocket of the case.
View with support bar fully inserted
The upper portion of the light is where the top unscrews for the battery.
The light extends down to the bottom of the case and you simply turn it on by pressing the small clickable button.
Light in action
The light is on the end of a flexible steel bar and can be positioned where you get the best view. I found the light to be soft and bright enough to light up the entire Kindle display. It is so refreshing to have a nice light solution and I have actually been reading more with this accessory.
