Waterproof Kindle Cases

by Greg on January 26, 2010

I was just checking Amazon earlier today and I came across some waterproof Kindle covers from TrendyDigital. I guess these would be handy if you we’re planning on going to the beach – to keep sand or water away from your Kindle. As far as being waterproof, I would highly suggest that you test the covers before actually using them.

This is from experience with a waterproof case that I bought for my Flip video recorder. When I was reading the reviews for the case many of the reviewers had problems with the case leaking and it ruined their recorder. Fortunately for me, I read the reviews before buying one and one of the suggestions that someone made was to test the case first. The way to do this is to fill a sink or bathtub with water and submerge the case in the water for a while and then take it out and see if any water was able to make it inside the case.

If you do buy a waterproof Kindle case I would suggest doing the same type of test but still realize that the case may act differently once there’s a Kindle inside of it. The thing that’s different with the waterproof Flip case and the waterproof Kindle case is that the reason that people buy the case for the Flip is that they’re actually going to use it in the water or under water and most people that buy these waterproof covers for the Kindle are buying them to keep water away from their Kindles (reading in the tub or at the beach) not because they’re going to be reading them under water – at least I would hope not. You should still test them anyway because you really don’t want to take a chance on ruining your Kindle. I would also suggest reading the reviews before buying one of these cases.

Here’s a couple of the waterproof cases that are available:

I’ve used the Kwik Tek Dry case for my kindle for over a year. I love love love it! Not only can I read in a long leisurely bath without worry of dozing off, but I can adjust my kindle so that I don’t need my reading glasses which fog up. The 6×9″ cover fits my Kindle perfectly, the pages turn easily. It’s available on Amazon for about $7.

I have the TrendyDigital waterproof cover and it sure beats a zip-loc bag for the beach and poolside during vacation.
