I have this cover on my Kindle Touch and it is the absolute greatest thing ever. I am looking to upgrade to the newest (8th) generation Kindle Basic E-Reader and am quite dismayed to see that this type of cover is no longer available as an option. I can see that Amazon has changed the E-Reader design and therefore using a case with a light that runs from the Kindle's power is not possible. Bad choice Amazon! I love how the light is integrated, provides just enough light, that the light is shining onto the screen and not into my eyes and never has to be charged separately, or batteries be replaced. It adds virtually NO WEIGHT to my e-reader. I have a light that I don't have to pack or carry around separately, so its always there when I need it and tucked away when I don't. Super sad that Amazon did not keep this ""technology"" an option in the latest releases.
