Thumbs up k3 cover and light

Just received my blue cover package was great, leather cover is top quality, easy to install cover, my only hope it doesen't drain the battery to quickly.
Anybody know what we should expect about battery use on this package?

Somebody (sorry can't remember who or what thread) calculated that you could read for approx 21 hours non-stop with the light on. So based on the fact that you're unlikely to use the light that often (I probably use it for an hour or so each night) then the drain on battery shouldn't be a big issue.

I haven't had any problems with the light draining the battery, although I've only used the light a couple of times. I do really love the lighted cover, however. So very convenient.

cheers

Does the Kindle seem a little loose in the case to anyone else? I have it locked in and it seems like there is a tiny bit of "floppiness" on the right side of the device and I wonder if it puts any pressure flexing on the contacts.

Are you certain it's locked onto the hinges properly? If you can see any gold on the hinges then it isn't on right - when it is locked on right you just see black on the hinge parts.

Mine does not feel loose at all.
