Touch cover that lets you store the light?

DH has a Touch with the m-edge GO jacket and fold-down m-edge light, but the light sticks out the side. He'd prefer a case which had space to hold and store the light. (Like the M-edge Executive Jacket for the Kindle Keyboard had). It doesn't look like the M-edge Exec for the Touch has that extra space to store the light.

Do any jackets have space to fold-down and store the light? He'd also like one that has a closure, as right now he's got a rubber band around the GO! jacket.

Anything with *both* those qualities: space to hold the fold-down light and a closure?

in advance!

Have you considered getting the Amazon lighted cover for the Touch? That way you get the best of both worlds.

Thank you, Harry. We might have to look into that. He's lukewarm on that one because the light draws from the kindle battery, and as he's already happy with the medge light. Perhaps there are some other options?

That's a major benefit of it. You don't need to worry about replacing the batteries in the light.

Apparently the light doubles the use of the battery power, however the Kindle has a very long battery life so it's not like you'll be charging it every night, more like every couple of weeks.

If you use the light regularly then it makes sense because you won't have to replace batteries, if you use it rarely then you won't be inconvenienced by the power the integrated light takes.

However, if you prefer the medge light for other reasons (e.g. shape/size/removability etc.) then maybe a different cover is for you.

I recommend this http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Clip-Re.../dp/B003HKRVAW . Works like a charm.

Get the official lighted cover, imo. Instead of charging every 25 days or so, you'll have to suck it up and charge every 20 or so.

Not only that, but it is one less charger and cable to carry.

You can use disposable batteries.
