Case

I have seen this neoprene pouch all over the web marked up to $15 or more (you can tell by the name on the zipper pulls). Here you can get it for $5.04 or under $5 if you buy more than one. The link is to a blue one, they are out of black right now but seem to keep restocking.

It is not a super tight fit, about 1 1/2 inches too long and 1 inch too wide, but good quality and you can have it shipped postal. Beats a zip-lock bag. I had 3 black ones shipped priority mail and got them in a couple of days.

Do a search for "Jetbook" and see all the other accessories very reasonably priced.

Thanks for that link, Ron. Do you remember what they stick you for shipping?

I just bought 2 for $4.79 each. They charged me $3.42 for shipping (First Class.) $13 total.
Thanks, Ron.

I guess it only makes sense to order more than one item at those prices.

If anybody decides to make a quantity order of those Lite cases (from it.com.cn), I'd go in on it.. Would be perfect for the wife's Lite..

I have one of the neoprene cases on the way for my regular jetbook, but the wife wants something a bit more like the new case pictured here.

I would also be interested in one of the Chinese cases should they somehow become available for order by individuals. I suspect that an order for a very large quantity would be required to make a wholesale purchase.

It doesn't seem to be sold separately anywhere. I looked all over the place on Chinese sites and couldn't find it. I think we could just get a normal case and cut the back for battery compartment.

I'm hoping we can find these at some point in the states, as I'd rather not have to modify a case to fit the reader. You'd think Ectaco would get some of these style cases and sell them as accessories to the unit, instead of leaving their new reader out in the cold without a cover..

I like the "Krusell" leather case for my pda, I hope they decide to make something
for the various eReader devices. They are a Swedish company so they may want to
support a device like the JetBook or JetBook Lite, that provides euro lang translation dictionaries. I haven't seen anything much for eReaders, on their site, yet, though.

Luck;
Ken

This looks intersting for the JBL:

(Hope the link works, it seems like it's there twice.)

You might have to work on the interior pading to make it match the JBL, though.
