Lightbulb Covers known to work with differing ereader models

Notice how old generation cases are about 1/3 the cost of the new generation cases and covers? Many have observed that old cases sometimes fit new models. Others have observed that some covers fit ereaders for which they are not even designed... This has potential for big savings.

I thought it might be valuable to have this information in one place, after searching in vain for a reference I thought I saw about an old generation I-nique Tuff Luv Kindle 2 case fitting a Kindle 3 well.

Anyway please post or PM me any known working combinations and relevant notes!


EDIT: Mods, if there's a better place for this, please move it accordingly. I'm a big newb (see avatar)...

M-Edge covers designed for the Sony Pocket Edition (PRS-300) also fit the Aluratek Libre Pro and the Ectaco Jetbook (but not the Jetbook Lite).

CaseCrown makes covers for various devices. I bought my Case Crown Kobocase on Ebay from Senyx-direct.

Shipping was cheap to Canada and it took less than two weeks to arrive from the US. They have a wide variety of Kobo cases, made from leather or vinyl.
