Consumer Electronics Show showcases the latest and greatest electronic gadgets. One of the solar powered standouts this year will be the solar powered Kindle cover, the SolarKindle.
The SolarKindle Lighted Cover sports a little solar panel on the cover and also features USB charging as well. It's built-in high capacity battery allows for charging the Kindle even when a light source isn't available. One hour of charging in the sun will provide approximately 3 days of light for reading.
There's a bright 800 lux LED light that flips out for nighttime or closet reading and a light indicator that will show the status of the charge.
SolarKindle will be available for shipping in a few days and starting retail price is $79.99.
