LightWedge Products for Kindle

lightLast night as I was riding home on the bus after dark, I thought, man it sure would be nice to have a light for my Kindle, especially while reading a book I particularly liked.

LightWedge has a an excellent booklight option called Verso Clip Light.  It enables you to read in low lighting and even in bed while your spouse or roommate is sleeping.  There are white and graphic version available.

Here is a note from LightWedge about their Verso Clip Light:

“We want our e-reader customers to have a positive reading experience. This product is the solution for readers who frequently read in low-lit areas,” says Jamey Bennett CEO of LightWedge LLC. “The e-ink displays used in most e-reader devices are not backlit, like a laptop computer. So, the Verso Clip On Light provides additional lighting and clips right on to e-readers.” The Verso Clip Lights go for around $15″

LightWedge is also featuring Kindle Covers by Verso:

Kindles are so fragile and slippery, so it is literally a necessity to get a case for it.  LightWedge has a great selection of covers including the Verso Gear Case.  These cases provide a variety of pockets and compartments to store Kindle accessories and charger cable.

“It’s no longer just a cover for the device, our unique designs allow individuals to express their sense of style,” said Bennett. (Source: LightWedge) The Verso line of e-reader accessories range in price from $14.99 to $49.99 and will be available at major retailers nationwide, Amazon as well as the company’s website (www.lightwedge.com).”

LightWedge is featuring their booklights and Kindle covers for Mother’s Day, which is coming up in a couple of months.  How fitting, because according to LightWedge, the e-readers are a big hit for women.  Both the light and the covers are available for the latest generation Kindle.

 

Finding a Booklight that is Right for You

After searching for the best book light to use with the Kindle, I came across the Kandle, by Ozeri.  According to the product description, the Kandle can be used on other e-reader devices, regular books and as a free standing night light.  The Kandle has pivoting arms for customized page viewing and also includes lights that are distributed evenly to prevent eyestrain and glare.  It had the best reviews overall.  However, there are many others to choose from.  Other book light suggestions include the e-Luminator2 Booklight for Amazon Kindle 2nd Generation and Mighty Bright XtraFlex2 Clip On Light.

After looking at the Kindle forums regarding booklights for the Kindle, I found out that there are a lot of Kindle users who want a backlight option to be added to the next generation of the Kindle.  Booklights in general have not had top rated reviews because of their battery drain and instability, as well as their cumbersome nature.  Amazon claims that their e-paper technology is easier on the eyes and allows longer, more comfortable reading.  The response has been mixed about this assumption.  Users have claimed they have no trouble reading on their computers or iPhone.  Amazon could install a backlight function just to have the option available.  That would put the choice to read with or without a backlight in the hands of the users and not Amazon.
