Thumbs up Kindle 3 Accessory Kit by Crazy Digital

I want to share this to all: So I saw this great deal on Amazon on Oct 4th. And went ahead and buy it, it was price $12.99 at the time now it's $14.99. It arrived today this morning.

Here's the link where you can buy it.

Anyway, it's a great steal. I only buy it bec of the car charger. I was searching for a car charger but found this instead. It has a Leather Book Cover, Screen Protector, Car Charger, Wall Charger, Extra USB cord, Head Phone and a wrist band from Crazy Digital.

Here's the pics:

Accessory all in.


As you can see the Shift and Back keys are still visible and accessable.


Crazy Digital Embose/Engrave name at the back.


About the book cover the leather has a nice feel to it, very soft and smooth it's very light compared to my Hot Pink Kindle Lighted Book Cover. It fits perfectly, the straps on the bottom doesn't cover the shift and back keys. The bottom keys on the Kindle is still accessable too. I tried shaking it (but not too far on my bed) too to see how strongly it helds the Kindle 3 and it passed. It holds it very securedly. I can't believe I only paid $13 bucks for all of these, original price is $70 for all. So if all of you wants a book cover for your Kindle3 that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg this Accessory Kit is a great buy. I recommend you buy it.

I love how it makes my Kindle lighter to hold now compared with the Kindle Lighted Book Cover, but the plus with Kindle Lighted Book Cover is that it has a built in book light, the book light is the only thing that's missing on this kit. But I still love it.

Note on the screen protector though, it looks shiny so I didn't put it on my Kindle yet I'm afraid there might be lots of glare with it. I was hoping it would be a matte finished. But since these are just extra when I only want the car charger, I couldn't complained.

That looks like a good kit, diokdin. Does the charger in your kit seem of good quality?

I'm not in the market for one, but after reading your post I was curious about trying to find just a car charger for the Kindle and found this deal at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Generation-Ear...6563152&sr=8-9 87% savings! It doesn't have the cover, but a car charger for only $3.99....hmmm...

^Yeah I saw that too. The car charger is cheap looking but it does works well. As you can see on my picture above it is a different look than what is advertise in the picture of their ads. The one in their ads looks much better I think. Actually I saw a bunch of car charger that only cost you less but I opted of buying the accessory kit bec it has extra just in case you loose yours, you have something on hand.

Here are links:

This here is still $3.99 but has the USB wire instead of the head set: http://www.amazon.com/CrazyOnDigital...564349&sr=1-34

Here's a $.99 car charger with retractable USB, it doesn't say Kindle 3 but it looks like it will work on K3: http://www.amazon.com/CrazyOnDigital...564446&sr=1-92

Another one (car &wall charger) with screen protector cost $1.99: http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-Travel-...64492&sr=1-123

Just the car charger cost $.01: http://www.amazon.com/CrazyOnDigital...64521&sr=1-126

I wish what they gave me (the car charger) is the one on the picture, but it does work so it's ok.

Hmmm, I was looking at covers for my K3 on Amazon and ones exactly like that are $12-14 alone. Indeed, I had bid on one for $12.99 and got outbit (why people do that when there are like a dozen others with no bids is beyond me).

Go direct to crazyondigital.com and order direct. The have the same combo pack for $9.99 and the shipping is $2.97. They are based in California. For us persons that live in states that Amazon is required to charge taxes on it would be a better deal (cheaper deal and no state taxes). I have not dealt with them. I am interested in the following docking station.

Guess they didn't see the others that doesn't have any bids or they just don't know how to use the search engine. LOL!

Shoot! Wish I went to their site directly save $3 more dollars but $12 is still not bad, so it's okay.

I was looking at that docking too but thought I might not use it as often since I always put my K3 on it's book cover. It sure is nice though...

They have what looks like the same exact kit for $12.99 here. I wonder what the difference is. One say black leather case, the other says premium black leather case, but they look the same to me.

A dollar more than yesterday. They also raised prices on some other things I was looking at.

I did buy the accessory kit today, anyway, so I'd have a spare cover, charger and plus the auto charger.

Yeah, for that price it is still a great deal than buying it individually. But I know what you feel every penny/dollar counts.

I always like to have spares, just in case that's why I bought this when I saw it before it goes up again. Saw someone's else review that the price was lower and then it went up...
