Solarfocus will introduce the SolarKindle cover at the Consumer Electronics Show today. With a built in reserve battery (1500mah) that will charge via USB or via an optional built in solar panel the cover also includes a built in LED reading light (800 lux) that will last up to 50 hours without using the Kindle’s own battery. The company claims that one hour of direct sunlight will result in 3 days of reading.
Currently only available for the latest Kindle non-touch however other models are in the pipeline.
The SolarKindle Lighted cover will be available January 15th for $79.99 from Solarfocus website and selected retailers.
