Read your Kindle in the bath with the Proporta BeachBouy waterproof case



I’m an avid reader and since getting my Kindle 3G, Amazon’s ereader literally goes everywhere with me. I take it to work for the commute, read it on the toilet, I even sleep with it by my pillow, much to the annoyance of my girlfriend.

But one area of my life the Kindle has yet to penetrate so far is bathtime. I couldn’t risk my most prized gadget getting ruined by suds and soap, no matter how much I needed find out what was in 1984‘s Room 101.

Until now that is.

Thanks to Proporta’s waterproof BeachBouy case, I can now soak and read at the same time. Designed with the Kindle second and third generation models in mind, it’ll keep any device that fits within its 19.2 x 12.2 x 1.3cm (H x W x D) pouch dry.

Conforming to the British Standards Institute IP57 and IP58 levels, it’s waterproof up to a depth of 5 metres, with its transparent covering allowing for full operation of your ereader.

  • I’ve purchased this case for my HTC Evo 3D. I’ve followed sellers instructions to make sure case was not damaged and was suitable for use. It seemed ok. But then few days later I’ve decided to use it to take some underwater snaps and it leaked. Phone got water damaged beyond repair and Proporta was keen to refund only case price, which was about 15 quid… So yes, it may have written all over it that it is waterproof up to 5m and waterproofness is guaranteed by UK certificates, but if it leaks you are left on your own with damaged equipment. But hey, you will get your money back for case :/
