How long do led lights last ? My old eyes require that I keep the light up pretty high when I read on my paperwhite - usually a couple of hours a day. Do I have to worry about the leds eventually burning out and then there being even more shadowing then there is now ?!

You shouldn't have to worry. Most LEDs last a long time. I have a flashlight that is over 10 years old now and it still works fine.

Estimates vary but are generally in the tens of thousands of hours. You will more than likely need a new device long before the LEDs burn out.

The LEDs should last as long or longer than the display.
