With new Kindle covers being released for both the Kindle 4 and the keyboard Kindle 3 all the time, we thought it would be worth having a little round up of the very best cases, covers and sleeves available today:
Here are our top 3 covers for each type of Kindle.
Best New Kindle 4 Covers
Please note we find amazon is still the best place to purchase covers, in terms of both price, quality and most importantly perhaps, fit.
1 Belkin Grip Kindle Sleeves
First up is the Belkin Grip Neoprene Sleeve for the new Kindle. We have a few reasons for choosing this particular model:
- The price. So many great covers and cases cost too much (we believe) when you consider the low price of the new eReader itself. At the time of writing these Grip sleeves are being sold for under 15 quid which we think is a bit more realistic.
- The grippy panel on the front means you really cannot seem to drop your reader, even on the busy tube!
- Good colour choices.
- Zips up securely.
- Good padding – but not overly large or heavy.
- The Kindle slides out totally for reading. Personally I am not a fan of those covers which add corner tabs or straps to keep the device in place. The best reading pleasure is surely to be had with the “naked” Kindle, light and ergonomic – and with such a sleeve that’s exactly what you get.
- Neoprene construction gives you some degree of protection against liquids and means it is hand washable.
2 Built Kindle Sleeves
We have loved these since the beginning. The new slimmer fit for the Kindle 4 has not disappointed. However I have to be honest – the fit isn’t quite as snug as it used to be for the keyboard version. This is because in the US (where the Kindle Touch is actually on sale) Built are selling this cover to suit both the touch and the 4th generation models. They are similar in size, but not identical and it shows. This might be slim but because it is built to hold the slightly larger touch-screen model I wouldn’t go holding it upside-down like I can with the Kindle keyboard version.
I know they are a little on the expensive side. But, these are so convenient, fluffy, fun and colourful I had to include them again!
3 Amazon Leather Kindle Cover
Yes I know it is pricey! And that is why I tried desperately hard not to include it in our run down of the best new Kindle cases. However, when you look at the alternatives if you are after a book style jacket, this one beats them hands down.
For a start much of the competition relies on corner straps which are untidy and I find annoying since the design of the reader itself is so clean and sleek. Secondly the prices, for anything even approaching half way decent in terms of quality, are usually almost the same. For a few pounds more (and that really is all you’re paying if you want a leather jacket), the Amazon own covers are the better choice.
Best Kindle Keyboard Covers
This is a bit tougher. The fact that the device itself is more expensive means that we are a little more open to spending a bit more on a case for it! Also, since it has been with us for a few years now there is ample choice, from super budget, to high end luxury. But which 3 cases do we recommend?
Read on and find out!
1. Lighted Kindle Keyboard Cover
This is pretty pricey I know. But, if you want a decent light it is not actually a bad price.
Because I prefer a sleeve type cover personally I hunted for a reading light that lit the whole screen and didn’t go through batteries like crazy. I eventually settled on an Octovo clip on light instead after trying a few cheaper models. But at around twenty quid for such a good light you can see that the lighted cover itself is priced as you would expect. After all the light is great and importantly, it is always to hand since it slips into the back cover when not being used.
2 Belkin Pleated Kindle Keyboard Sleeve
Plus of course it is cheaper!
Because it zips up tight and secure this is the kind of case most suited to a crazy messy hand-bag – nothing is going to get in there and mess up your display!
Personally I don’t see why it is nearly double the price of the Grip version for the smaller reader detailed above – but that’s the only negative I can come up with for these sleeves!
3. Built Kindle Keyboard Sleeves
Yes, I’ve mentioned these before! But the simple style and amazing tight fit just keeps me coming back to the Built sleeves for the Kindle keyboard – I am sad enough to own a few colours now though ScatterDot remains the favourite!
As I write these are out of stock. And, it seems a lot of other previously popular keyboard covers are out of stock too. I wonder if the manufacturers know something we can only suspect… is the Kindle keyboard to disappear from the UK store sometime soon?
I wouldn’t be surprised so if you want a new cover for a keyboard model I guess it is probably time to act fast if you want any choice!
