7 tips for protecting your Kindle: A Guest Post from Case Happy.

If you are considering making the transition from hardback books to digital books you have a fun journey ahead of you.  The Kindle provides lots of fun and is not too overwhelming to get your head around although it may feel a little different to regular paperback books.  As you take the time to navigate around your new device you will soon pick up lots of tricks and tips.

To help you we have come up with seven tips for protecting your Kindle including shopping for Kindle cases, ways to protect your device and how to minimise battery usage.  I asked Case Happy a Kindle cases provider for tips and they were happy to discuss in a little more detail.

SAVE THE BATTERY LIFE

New Kindle owners are often not aware that an active wireless connection can drain your battery.  The majority of the time you only need to access the internet for a few minutes to download or purchase a Kindle book so turn the Wi-Fi off and only turn it on when you need it.

SHOP FOR KINDLE CASES

One of the biggest benefits of owning a Kindle is the ability to take it with you everywhere.  Protect your Kindle from falls and accidental knocks with a Kindle case from Case Happy.  Shopping for Kindle cases can be a lot of fun as you will quickly notice there is plenty of choice on the market.  There really is something for everyone.

Did you know Kindle cases are effective at gripping surface space?  Many have additional features such as an automatic on/off feature when you close and open the cover

SAMPLE BOOKS BEFORE YOU BUY THEM

It can be very easy to buy every book on the Kindle store.  Unfortunately you only have so much time to read so many books.  Be wiser with your choices and sample books before you commit to purchasing.  If you like the sample then purchase the books you are most drawn in by.

MAKE THE FONT LARGER

If you find at bedtime when the lighting is not as bright your eyes struggling to adjust, give your eyes a rest and adjust the font size.

PUT ADEQUATE SECURITY ON YOUR KINDLE

Not only is it important to protect the exterior of your device with Kindle cases you need to put the relevant controls in place to secure the interior.  A password will protect any information you have on your Kindle.  Putting sufficient security in place will also reduce the chance of people looking at your content without permission to do so.

If you have children, consider putting the child lock on too.

LEARN NEW THINGS

Your Kindle gives you almost the same features as you would expect from you hardback.  You can look up certain words with the built in dictionary or write notes on the side of pages.  You can even highlight sections and bookmark.  Don’t be overwhelmed by all these extra features, you will soon get the hand of them.

PROTECT YOUR SCREEN

A large proportion of the Kindle is made of an LCD screen and it can be very easy to damage this.  We cannot stress how important Kindle cases are; they look good but they will also provide sufficient protection from falls.  It can be very easy for your Kindle to fall from the side of your bed so protect it with Kindle cases.

There you have a couple of handy tips for looking after your Kindle. As always thank you to Case Happy for such a lovely little article, hope all you bookish readers enjoyed!

    Reblogged this on Sleepy Book Dragon and commented:
    Kindle’s are great for when you finally accept you have run out of room for physical books or for those hard to get books.

      Definitely! Or when you know you’ve got a long journey but have limited space – much smaller than a book and carry so many more stories!
