Case for Kobo touch

Hi all,

has anyone found a good quality case with an integrated light for the Touch? I have seen some for Kindle 4, not sure if they'll fit the Touch?

cheers for any help,

dq

I picked up this one last week when I got my Touch:

It's awesome. I love it; though, it's the only case I've had so I don't know how it compares to others...

I've bought this one and I think it's great.

We have 3 Kobo's in our house, and 2 of them have the Skin Digital real leather book style cases:

http://www.skindigitalstore.com/prod...ase-Cover.html

The third one has a CaseCrown, which is essentially a synthetic material clone of the Skin Digitals:

http://www.casecrown.com/ebook-readers/kobo-touch

These are all very high quality, extremely well designed, and SD's are the lowest cost you're going to find for a real leather case, very highly recommended! Mind you, no light included, but the design is intended to allow the front cover to fold back on itself and lock in place with the closure clip, leaving a 1/4" gap between the back cover and the folded back front one. Then you can clip on any brand of LED style light to the cover you want without interference or fear of damaging your screen, and it's very secure without flopping around and falling off.

We use these ones, but purchased from Costco in 2-packs for $13CDN;

http://www.amazon.com/Fulcrum-Multi-..._ob_hi_title_1

An added plus is that these cases (both the SD's and CC's) are specifically designed for the Kobo Touch, with a proper solid frame that securely holds the device in without covering any switches or ports.

All of the competing devices that use elastic strap look so cheap and homemade! And in most cases the straps cover the power switch and SD card slot so using them is a pain.

Cheers
The REAL Joe

I think it's cheaper to buy a cover and then a light to attach to it. I have a SD cover which I bought off ebay and it was very cheap! I bought a cheap ereader light and the total for both came to $25.

The Skin Digital one looks really nice. Does anybody here have any experience with buying one of these from the UK? Or is there a UK seller for these?

The closest I have found available in the UK (well, from 21 January supposedly) is the Cover-up, available from Amazon at about twice the price of the Skin Digital cover/case.

Thanks.

Skin Digital is in China, and they ship from there worldwide, free shipping. We've bought 2 directly from their website without issue, and they accept PayPal for a truly painless experience. If you prefer or feel more secure, they also have an eBay store, you can buy from there with eBay's protection.

Resurrecting an old thread to post my thanks to Joe for this recommendation, I ordered one of these (light blue) for my wife's new Kobo Touch and when it finally arrived (delivery took nearly 4 weeks to the UK with the free delivery) it is an extremely good case, nicely made and comfortable to use.

I've not looked at any other cases so I can't compare, but very happy with this one.
