Gadget-loving culture is unsustainable in many ways, and one major concern is the consumption of electricity to juice up each of your many devices on a daily basis. Products like the SolarKindle Lighted Cover offer electronics enthusiasts a way to reduce their energy expenditure by taking full advantage of renewable sources in the natural world.

A company quite practiced in producing these sorts of gizmos, SolarFocus has developed a leather protective sheath for the Amazon Kindle that integrates a reading lamp and a front of efficient solar panels. The energy acquired from the sun is converted and used resourcefully to power the built-in retractable LED light and to charge the e-ink tablet. The SolarKindle Lighted Cover is super slim, eco-friendly and allows you to take your technology into the wilderness or use a USB port as backup.
