Danny Trejo tough. Interior air chambers do the point float. Soft-touch plastic on the ago boosts her wet-fingered grip.
You can't accessibility the strength button, so if your device turns itself off while you're re-enacting PT-109 v rubber duckies, you have to dry the case off, departure the tub, and extricate her Kindle to revolve it back on again. Glowing plastic-screen overlay robs the leader of several of its direct-sunlight skills. Heavy: essentially triples your reader's weight. Gotta leaving it unlatched once you board a plane. Why? to decrease in pressure could wreck the case's flexible-plastic portion.
If a book and a Kindle acquired into a street fight, the publication would kick some e-inked ass. (Especially if it's a hardcover.)

As capacious and also technologically advanced as Amazon's e-book reader is, it's gossamer compared to a tightly packed wad of published paper. Litter a Kindle in her bag unprotected, and also you're responsible to crack the screen. Drop it down a trip of stairs, and also you'll be choose up pieces at the next landing.

Long overdue, the Kindle's fit of armor has arrived: The M-Edge Guardian. Through 17.1 ounces of hard plastic and O-rings, the Guardian lets you tote her Kindle anywhere: the beach, Fallujah, also the bathtub. The heavy-gauge plastic exterior will clamp about your electronic library with 4 Pelican-case–like clasps.

You access the buttons and keyboard through thin, clear rubber windows. These administer generally decent tactile access: We have no complaints about the next buttons, i beg your pardon you usage the most anyway. It's simple to revolve pages or struggle the menu button.

Our an initial test was to bring the Guardian in the tub. No trouble with water (or hardcore nekkidness). Once we take it it to the beach, not a serial of sand breached its fortified perimeter.

Then we kicked it up a level and also threw the Guardian — include Kindle — right into the dishwasher. Perform not shot this. Even though the situation protected our reader admirably and also showed no disadvantage effects, M-Edge doesn't warranty versus the pot-scrubber cycle.
