5.0 out of 5 stars The best and most practical booklight so far! January 5, 2010

Length: 1:25 Mins
Hello, this is my first video review, and after using Kandle I definately thought that it deserves a video review to show how well it actually works. Thanks for watching!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's da peacemaker. January 1, 2010
Verified Purchase
My wife? Cuddly as a panda cub. She sweetly bought me a Kindle DX for my birthday, but as my late-night reading habit brought unwelcome lamplight to our bed, her temper became violent, mafia violent. "I can't sleep! I'm going to smash your new toy!" she growled one morning with the force of crossed gods and dying suns. A chill swept over the planet. Birds stopped singing. Children paused in playgrounds.

Enter the Kandle. Now I can read in bed (my favorite place in the house) with barely any light spilling over onto my wife's eyelids. The bedside lamp stays dark. No more threats against the Kindle or me.

Suggestion: Clip the Kandle to the side of the DX to illuminate its larger screen. (The bottom of the page is a tad dark if the Kandle is placed along the top of the DX.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as thrilled as I thought I would be January 27, 2010
By afb

OK. I like it, and I'm going to keep it, but just because, IMO, it is better than the competition doesn't mean that it's perfect. From all the 5 star reviews was prepared to think it the greatest thing since sliced bread.

The clip is good. It will fit on the kindle and is versatile enough that even with a cover will either fit over both or slip between the cover and kindle. I'm a little worried about how durable the "spring clip" is. It's a clothes pin design.

Mine did come with batteries installed, but no extra batteries...as many people have mentioned that they received. It takes two 3V CR2032 batteries. Pamphlet says they last 25 hours. I did look up and Amazon sells 25 for $5.81, so not bad. However, to change the batteries you have to have one of those tiny philips head screw drivers to open and close the battery compartment.

Also, I have the smaller kindle. It does not have hot spots nor areas it doesn't cover, but there are certainly areas that are darker than others. It makes me wonder how it would do on the DX.

I know that I've pointed out the negatives, but there are many things that I like. They've been pretty well covered in the 5 stars, but one thing I do like is that when you close it up, it is sturdy. I would feel comfortable just sticking it in my pocket and it being comfortable that it wouldn't get damaged. I think that's a huge plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars a kandle for every kindle January 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
I spent a lot of time researching booklights for my kindle (6" global) and checked the Lightwedge and some Mighty Bright designs (which got superb reviews) at a local Barnes & Nobles store before purchasing this product. The size, design, and features of the kandle pretty much match everything I want in a kindle booklight:

*Lightweight and compact (if you have a lot of electronic gadgets, cables, and chargers to always pack, this makes a huge difference)
*Flat and rectangular clip-on (easy to fit in a jacket pocket or flat zip-case, unlike traditional, bulky desk lamp designs)
*Cordless (no long neck to stuff or tangle in my bags)
*Adjustable lighting angles (There are many ways to illuminate the entire reading area to achieve the desired lighting intensity and also minimize impact on people next to you, whether you're in bed or on the plane)

The kandle is very versatile and portable and will work great with clipboards, magazines, and laptop screens as well.

Well worth the investment!

5.0 out of 5 stars great book light...nice and portable! December 30, 2009

Got this book light for my Kindle reader. Folds down into a nice compact design making it easy for carrying. My other book light was always getitng tangled up and kept on turning on by itself in my bag causing the batteries to run out. This one attaches securely to my kindle and doesnt move around like the other one I have. This one also matches the Kindle color.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kandle Kan't Handle April 11, 2010

Hopefully this review will help customers decide whether or not this flimsy device is really worth purchasing. This video focuses on how the Kandle falls short of being a good light for the Kindle DX.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product! January 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this Kandle to use with my Kindle. It is compact. Folds up nicely, easily fitting into a purse or drawer. It's lights are bright enough to read the entire screen without glare. A big bonus was that it came installed with batteries and an extra set of replacement batteries as well. I made an inquiry to the company regarding the delivery date of my Kandle and received excellent service. Their reply was prompt, courteous and very informative. I would recommend this product to anyone needing illumination for their Kindle and I would definitely recommend this company for fast, courteous and quality service.
