Cover/Case For Eken

8667 Views 32 Replies 22 Participants Last post by  snortonx
I have bought a case designed for the Kindle 2 reader which fits just nicely. Its a neoprene slipcase and cost about 3 GBP. The Kindle 2 is a few millimetres different dimension-wise, so other cases for the same device might just fit also.

I am taking the plunge and getting a simple neoprene case made for the Kindle 2 off of ebay (like 10 bucks) .. will report on it when I get it.
Making this available to all, since... well I have the info...----------------------Size comparisons for popular e-readers:Eken m001: H: 8.15" (201mm) W: 4.69" (119mm) D: 0.5" (13mm)Kindle 2 (this apparently is NOT the DX!) : H: 8" W: 5.3" D: 0.76" <---As stated in first post, this is the closest match.Kindle DX: H: 10.4" W: 7.2" D: 0.38"Nook: H: 7.7" W: 5.3" D: 0.5"Kobo: H: 7.2" W: 4.7" D: 0.4"------------------So the Kindle 2 (not the same as DX) has the closest specs, only issue would be that the eken is a bit taller. For flip-style cases which use diagonally placed elastics or other means to secure the device, I'd have to see a case/cover and try the eken in it to make sure the elastics can actually secure the thing. .15" doesn't sound like much, but it could be a major issue. Anyone know someone with a Kindle 2 case with such a setup like this? Example:
or this:
Hope this helps blablabla, and please let us know if you can solve this!

[quote author=rcon303 link=topic=58.msg2456#msg2456 date=1274932428]on a remotly related topic- anyone have plans to custom paint/mod their cases?i have used auto paint on some roland music synths with great results...shocked thatchina hasn't started making rubberized cases yet like they have for iphones etc.. ???[/quote]I forgot who, but someone has done this successfully, and in black. Looks GREAT. Just search the forum for "slimming" or "slimmer"... you'll see.
Just bought a "carrier" or "bag" for mine since I couldn't find a decent "book-style" cover for it...8 bucks or so plus shipping, came out to under 10 bucks from ebay seller Firegadgets
Will letcha know how it goes when it gets here.

Wow, that Eken-specific case looks pretty good, was pretty much exactly what I was saying I was unable to find a week or so ago. Mental note... -------------------Also, my neoprene case got here. It was originally for a Kindle 2 (notice a pattern developing?) fits the eken like a glove, as in it barely fit. But not too tight where it's unusable, plus it has a pocket in the front for things like cables, pens (or other stylus tools) or car chargers. Yes, will test out the charger soon and let you know.Images to follow, I definitely recommend.
