TKC Video: The Kindle Cases of Summer

In this video I review three covers designed to protect Kindles at the beach and elsewhere this summer. You’ll see the Guardian ($79.99) by M-Edge Accessories,  the KlearKase for Kindle 2 (intro price of $39.99) by KlearKase and the Waterguard case for Kindle ($14.49 + $5.75 shipping) by TrendyDigital. I filmed this review today at Ocean Park, Maine, late in the afternoon when a few horse flies showed up as unwelcome extras.

    Nice job. I was looking for something inexpensive for the beach and the TrendyDigital looks like it fits the bill.

    Thanks. Always look forward to my weekly fix of TKC.

    I loved this video. Well done. Good / timely info.

    As an aside… love the big guy slowly moving behind you from right to left. Glad you kept this take. Gave me the feeling of sitting across from you. I love this about video… you never know what you’re going to shoot behind you.

    Hope you’re having a great summer. Mark

    Hello, Nice video! Even a turtle walked behind you… ;0

    How do you protect your Kindle Graphite?

    Hi Len,

    You may have just been indicating that you aren’t planning to buy a waterproof case for the iPad, but TrendyDigital does have one on the market right now:

    Fairly mediocre reviews, though, on this site anyway.

    Len- Excellent as awlays. Quick question on the Trendy- can you access the on/off button while in the case?

    Yes, you can access the on/off button on the Kindle in the TrendyDigital case, especially if you put the Kindle in upside down.

    The video is unusually crisp. Audio has a bit of wind’s effect maybe but that is unusually clear video.

    Is that from your iPhone?

    Andrys, I shot the video with a Sanyo Xacti camera I’ve had for a couple of years. I love my iPhone, but the Sanyo’s image quality is definitely superior.
