~I Needed Light~
I was looking for a good decent light to read my kindle by, I have a clip on book light but I have decided it is not good enough for me to read by, I can't clip it to my kindle because it is to big and bulky and falls off. On searching the Amazon website I found exactly, the light I wanted, the thing was, I had to purchase one of the covers which house the light I wanted, this annoyed me a little as at that point I only wanted the light, but looking at the design of the light I understood why an M-edge cover was needed.
~The Perfect Light~
The little kindle light is white in color and from the bottom to the tip of the light it measures about 8 inches, the light has a flexible neck for adjusting over my kindle just exactly as I like, on the opposite end to the actual light is the battery compartment which is the size of a triple A battery as that is all I need in order for my little kindle light to work, the end of this just simply screws off so I can pop the battery in and out to change it when it dies. The battery seems to be lasting forever, I've used it more or less every night since I got it a good few months ago and I haven't had to change the battery yet. Attached to the battery compartment is a flat piece of plastic, this is the clever part of the light as it slots perfectly into the specially designed M-edge cover, this slim piece of plastic fits into the cover and lies behind my kindle totally concealed by my cover. The way this has been designed is brilliant, it adds no extra weight to my kindle at all, the light unit is tiny and it's over all appearance is lovely and neat. The light end has a switch on the top of it so I can turn it on and off and also choose from two different brightness's, I find the dimmest of the two is quite bright enough for my needs.
~I Saw The Light And Saved Money~
I am really impressed with this little light, it not only looks good but works brilliantly as well, from what I have read about the kindle lighted cover, this by far out weighs it, for a start I can move this little light around and position it perfectly over my kindle screen, where as the light in the lighted kindle cover is positioned in one place so therefore does not light up the whole screen evenly, this is ok for some people but for me I like my kindle screen evenly lit. So my new cover and light are spot on for me and I highly recommend both of them, between the two items I still paid less than I would have buying a lighted kindle cover a saving of around £10.00 which pleases me a lot, especially as in my opinion what I have is far better then the kindle lighted cover anyway.
~Neat, Compact And Perfect Light~
When I zip up my kindle for the night and switch off the little kindle light, I can then swivel the light right round and slot the head of the light into the slim pocket on the back of the cover, I have no need to remove the light from the cover at all, it all tucks away neatly and compactly. I am so impressed with this light I couldn't wait to write this review to share with fellow kindle lovers just exactly how amazing this little light really is. If you are looking for a really good way to light up your kindle then look no further, you won't be disappointed, ok so you will have to fork out for the cover as well, but it is so worth it and I'm so glad I took the plunge and bought them both.
~Where You Can Find The Light And The Amount You Can Expect To Pay?~
Like I already mentioned I purchased this great little light from Amazon and it cost me £14.99 but at the time of writing this review these little lights are out of stock, they must be popular and I'm not surprised, but hang on in there I'm sure more will be available soon. Please note that you will need to purchase the triple A battery separately as it is not included with the light, but 1 triple A battery isn't going to break the bank I don't think.
I can honestly say this little kindle light has made my kindle reading experience even better than it was before, if that was at all possible, I love my kindle, the cover is great for protecting it and keeping it clean and the light is just the icing on the cake for me, it finishes the whole kindle package off perfectly, 100% recommended.
5 stars most definitely are awarded from me for this light, it's fantastic.
