    A really handy thing to have around

    posted by CaptKirk on 09/21/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Cons:
    Two AA are barely enough current to replace a true D cell. You probably should use rechargeables because you will go through a...

    Only displays in Celsius - it would be nice if it had Fahrenheit setting for those of us in the US!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Great case for Kindle Fire. Kindle Fire fits perfectly and securely. The fire carrier inside looks like it will add considerable protection to the Fire. Looks really professional being carried. Allows you to prop up the Fire in landscape orientation or ...
    Cons:
    Adds a bit of "bulk" (thickness) to the normally slim Fire, but that is the price to get this level of protection. T...
