Periscope® Debuts Cover with Built in Reading Light for Amazon Kindle 2 Owners

periscope-lighted-folio-for-amazon-kindle-2While the Amazon Kindle 2 digital wireless reader features a host of improvements over the original Kindle reader, it still requires a light to be enjoyed in low light reading environments. Periscope®, the industry leading designer and marketer of integrated book lights in bookcovers for hardcovers, paperbacks, and digital reading devices, today announced the introduction of its Periscope® Lighted Folio for Kindle 2 to address this very need.

Available for immediate delivery from at a suggested retail price of $49.95, this remarkable “all-in-one” unit features a retractable Periscope® twin LED reading light, deluxe cover, and notebook/pen holder in one attractively designed black leatherette unit. The company also offers a Lighted Folio for the original Kindle 1 reader.

Ideal for reading at home or on the road, consumers simply slip their Kindle 2 into the custom designed holder, pull up the retractable, twin LED reading light, and begin reading in any low light environment – in bed, on a bus, train, or airplane, as well as in a car or class room. When finished, they can retract the reading light into the spine of the cover, turn off their Kindle 2, and close the cover. Everything stays together until the next time it is needed for reading, working, or studying!

The Lighted Folio’s built-in 5″X8″ notepad and pen holder make the Periscope® Lighted Folio for Kindle 2 ideal for students and professionals alike. If they don’t need to use the notepad they can snap the cover open for one handed reading! The built-in retractable light is powered by three “AA” batteries (not included) that will last at least 40 hours. The cover features a magnetic snap closure that secures the Kindle 2 when traveling. A mini-travel 110-220V AC adapter is available for purchase separately.

Periscope® reading lights answer a common dilemma faced by travelers, commuters and late-night readers: how to illuminate a book in dark places without cords, clips or clutter. The Periscope® Book Light in a BookcoverTM is a single, lightweight design that integrates a superb, retractable reading light inside a bookcover. With a Periscope® Book Light in a BookcoverTM, the light never leaves the book being read!
