Covers/Cases (with lights) for T2 and T3S.

Hi,

My girlfriend and I have just acquired a T2 and a T3. We're looking for cases.

I've found some with the reading light made for the T2 on Ebay for about $30 - does anyone know of anything else?

Hers is proving to be more of a problem as they have the official Sony case... which according to reviews for the T3 is just horrible.

Can we get cheap cases and add lights?

Very new to this.. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for that link, unfortunately that won't work. Apparently she has the T3S (no included Sony cover).

Thanks for the link though.

The T3s is the same size as the T3, So either cover will work.

I can't speak for the T3, but for the T2, I use an M-Edge Go! jacket that made for a Kindle. It's nice, since the T2 is slightly thinner, it leaves room in the middle to insert the stylus. For a light I use an M-Edge E-Luminator. I find it works better to mount it on front cover when I've got it flipped back (like you'd put it in the pages of a book). The slot they provide works, but I find myself constantly bending the neck of the E-Luminator to adjust it back to the proper position. I don't have that problem when I use it on the flipped over front cover.

M-Edge Go! jackets on eBay are less than $5 (including shipping) on eBay. Be sure you get the one for Kindle 4, Kindle Touch, Kobo Touch and not the one for the Kindle 3. Several colors and textures.

The M-Edge E-Luminator is also available for less than $5 (including shipping) on eBay. The come in white or black.

The T3 doesn't seem to have nearly the same number of choices.

You can also buy the original (OEM) Sony T1 case (which will fit the T2) for $7.75, which includes s/h.

I like the optional light. I want my case to sit flat when not in use, without a big light bulge on the back of it. I was specifically responding to the OP's question about cheap cases with add-on lights.
