Solar Powered Kindle Touch Cover Coming Soon

One of the hot new gadgets which debuted at CES 2012 is about to hit the market, and it solves a problem that I’m pretty sure very few people have.

SolarFocus, an Asian solar panel maker, is going to be shipping their second Kindle cover in a couple weeks. This one is built just for the Kindle Touch, and it includes an LED light, battery, and a solar panel.

SolarFocus is boasting that their cover can charge the Kindle Touch and that it offers a 3-month-long battery life. It’s due to ship on 15 April, and the retail is $80. That might seem a little expensive, but Amazon’s own lighted covers cost $60. Those covers come with a light but no solar panel. I would think that the $20 difference is worth it.
