5.0 out of 5 stars Collected Another Kindle Light! May 12, 2010
Color Name:White|Verified Purchase
Length: 1:41 Mins
Edit on July 10, 2010:

I have added a very short video comparing a few of my reading lights, but please understand I am not a videographer, so it really isn't that good. But I hope it helps someone though.

I still use the Belkin light the most and no longer look for any other reading lights for my Kindle - it broke my addiction! :)

Original Review:

I admit to collecting reading lights for my Kindle (you can see my review of others here: Mighty Bright MiniFlex Book Light, Black), so it wasn't surprising when I ordered this one after seeing it mention on the Kindle forum here on Amazon.

The light is very bright - even on the lowest setting. It might actually be a bit too bright if you are reading in bed with a significant other, but I don't have that problem at the moment.

I read my Kindle naked - sans cover. This light firmly holds onto the Kindle without or without a cover. It is different than the other Might Bright Lights, as this doesn't clip on per se - it will slide onto the naked Kindle, and will extend to fit over the Kindle with a cover. I have added pictures above to show this in more detail.

For me, the biggest issues are weight of the light and limiting a hotspot on the Kindle screen. I find this light to weigh about the same as the Mighty Bright XtraFlex2 Clip-On Light (Kindle Version) Black [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging], (maybe a little less) but it seems more balanced because of the wider base - easier for me to use in bed while I am lying on my side.

3.0 out of 5 stars Belkin nearly got it right June 27, 2010
Color Name:White|Verified Purchase
The light has really only got to do two things well: stay in place and provide glare-free light.

The clip mostly works, though it can be dislodged rather easily. The clamp is not a levered-clothespin, but a parallel clamp that doesn't exert a whole lot of pressure when in place. Not a dealbreaker for bedtime readers, but just don't expect to leave this thing in place while walking around the house or transporting in a bag.

The LEDs put out as much light as a decent flashlight. It's not a peaceful, soft glow but a serious task light on a gooseneck. It's bright enough to annoy a spouse... even a spouse that's watching TV. If Belken knocked the lower setting down to about 1/3 its current brightness, it'd be plenty bright for reading the Kindle. The switch is on the lamp head, which itself is pretty small. Flicking the tiny switch with a thumbnail isn't that bad, but it's easy to flick right past the lower setting and end up lighting up the whole bedroom for a second --before switching the thing off by accident (missing the lowest setting, again). By doing this you end up creating a momentary disco effect in the bedroom just trying to get the thing turned on.

Having AAAs instead of coin batteries in the light is a welcome convenience. You're more likely to have AAAs around the house than some little watch battery. Changing the batts is as simple as changing the batts in a TV remote control; there are no little screws contend with. I haven't had it long enough to judge its battery life, though.

But be aware that the using 3xAAAs in a light does add a considerable amount of weight to the top of the Kindle. The concern isn't really with the weight it adds, but the way it affects the balance and ergonomics of the Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Kindle light yet! June 8, 2011
Color Name:Graphite|Verified Purchase
I absolutely LOVE this Kindle reading light. I had previously purchased a different reading light and it damaged the skin that I put over my kindle. I was not a happy camper considering I paid $20 for the skin. There is no problem with that here!
Many people have complained about this light not fitting the Kindle 3 but they do include a plastic piece that can be used with the light to help it fit. Since I am using it over both my Kindle and the cover I have for it, I do not have that problem. It's very sturdy and I have no problem with it sliding or slipping in the least.
I also appreciate that it has 2 brightness settings. It's perfect for reading in bed before sleep or anywhere there is dim lighting.
The moveable neck is also a great feature, it allows me to move the light to exactly where I need it depending on where I have the Kindle placed.
I hope this helps those of you deciding which light to pick. I don't regret this purchase at all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Belkin Clip-On Reading Light for Kindle July 5, 2011
By KristiS
Color Name:Graphite|Verified Purchase
This is my second Belkin Clip-on Light and I love them! The reason I bought a second is because I wore mine out. I read every night and in darkened areas without fail and I have bent the flex neck on my first clip-on light every which way since I've gotten it and it's endured it beautifully. Make no mistake, it still works fine but I like to have a back-up. One of my biggest fears is not having my Belkin Light, I can't sleep without reading at night and Belkins Clip-On Light has yet to fail me in the 2 years that I've owned them.

What I like about my Belkin Clip-On Light for Kindle:

-It fits my Kindle 2 & 3 with or without the Leather Cover. The Light comes with an insert for the Kindle 3 to ensure a proper fit.
-I can bend the Flex Neck any way I want i.e. facing away from my husband yet still on my Kindle at night, therefore not disturbing him but still allowing me to see without difficulty
-I can use it on print books
-I get HOURS of reading time with 3 triple A batteries
-I have a choice of 2 different light settings
-It's incredibly easy to store: The light attached to the flex neck fits into the clip-protecting the light and making it easy to travel with and to store when not in use.

I have no dislikes

I higly recommend this light for your 'in the dark' reading needs. I never leave home without it and if you like to read at night or in areas where the light is not sufficient, then this is the light for you!
