When you get new electronics, one of the first additional purchases that you make is something to protect it. With an Amazon Kindle, this is particularly important due to the fragile nature of the e-Ink display. A traditional book has a cover, but the Kindle itself doesn’t have something that will protect it if it falls. To remedy this, many people sift through the available Kindle covers to find something that fits their style and gives them a little bit more comfort that their new e-reader investment will be safe.
It really can be hard to pick a cover that fits your own preferences, is reliable, protects your device, and isn’t over priced. Due to the fact that the gadgets themselves, like the Kindle, create such a frenzy of popularity, the case manufacturers can set prices higher than usual and many produce quickly made impractical designs. Everyone has different values when purchasing a case, and you need to decide what is most important to you. There are many different factors when purchasing a case, such as: design, weight, protection, price, and durability. Some people may be more comfortable with a not particularly protective silicone skin for the Kindle, while some may prefer a clunky cushioned leather case that will survive a hectic lifestyle.
The good news when considering these different factors is that due to the popularity of the Kindle, there is a huge variety of third party cases. They range from three dollar silicone gel covers, to one hundred and twenty five dollar designer cases. Clearly, the most appropriate cases usually fall somewhere between those two offerings, and for most consumers, closer to the cheaper side. While purchasing a cover for sixty or seventy dollars may get you a nice leather cover, it is also more than half the price of the device itself. For most people, the case is considered necessary, but not such a large investment that it makes the price of purchasing a Kindle itself harder to swallow.
The huge amount of options from third parties and Amazon made Kindle covers makes it easy to decorate your Kindle in anyway that you choose. With their already extremely established and popular online marketplace, you can search and browse hundreds of different Kindle covers with just a few clicks. Upon making your decision, your already set up Amazon account makes the order a piece of cake, and out goes your Kindle case for delivery! The large variety is pretty easily navigated through Amazon, and one of the better ways to do so is to filter by popularity or by rating. This brings the best cases towards the top, and also shows you what other people are purchasing. If a case is purchased frequently, then they usually have a much higher amount of reviews available. This allows you to sift through the words of people that own the case, and determine what they liked about it and what they didn’t. Often times their opinions can push you into buying, or not buying, a case. Next we can take a look at some of the popular cases, and what makes them a good purchase.
Far and away the most popular Kindle case is the one that Amazon produces itself. The Kindle Leather Case comes in about seven different colors, and it retails for about thirty one pounds on Amazon.co.uk. Check it out here.
The reason that these Kindle covers are so popular is that Amazon themselves designed them, and they go perfectly with the Kindle without impeding any usage of the device. The controls are easily accessible, the securing mechanism is built into the Kindle body, and the case is so lightweight and well placed that it’s almost not noticeable. This is exactly what you would want in a Kindle case since you want to feel it’s as similar to a lightweight paperback as possible. Another benefit of this case is that Amazon has the ability to produce them all over the world. These are the most popular Kindle covers in the UK, Germany, Spain, and many other countries around the world. Where some third party companies may only be able to sell to a few countries, Amazon itself is completely global. This case is also available, for an extra twenty pounds, with a reading light built in. This is invaluable if you frequently find yourself reading in low light conditions, or simply enjoy having a well let page at all times.
Another case that is trending as one of the most popular Kindle covers in the UK is the Gelaskins Protective Skin. These cases are a bit different, and only provide body protection without full screen protection. While some people may still prefer an additional case, these cases offer a complete redesign to the body of the Kindle, and can help you add your personality to your device. They are basically a silicone gel that is molded for the Kindle, and it covers all areas around the screen and keys, including the back. These Kindle covers make it look as though the device itself has been painted, and it truly transforms the look, check them out and see if you can find a design that appeals to you.
Overall, the Kindle provides an incredible experience in the e-Reading world. With hundreds of Kindle covers in the UK and in the rest of the world, it makes personalizing and protecting your device a pleasurable and easy process. Amazon continues to innovate with their own cases, and they are constantly pushing out updates and newer versions of their cases to keep the people happy. Additionally, they back up their products and they have a very easy and a very reasonable return policy that allows you to purchase cases from them with confidence. As the Kindle itself grows more and more popular, there will be hundreds and hundreds of more cases available. If you follow your own personal preferences, and read thoroughly through reviews on Amazon itself, then chances are you’ll find a case that perfectly compliments your e-Reader experience!
