First of all, the Verso is compact. It's small enough to fold up and easily fit into your purse or pocket. Second, it clips onto my Kindle with ease, and works even with the leather case I have. The design of the Verso clip is done in such a way that it conforms to the shape of your Kindle. Third, the Verso is extremely lightweight. It doesn't weigh down the Kindle, and the responsive bendable arm makes comfortable adjustment a cinch. You also don't need to have it directly over the Kindle to give you enough light while reading.
Which brings me to my final and perhaps most important point: the Verso is BRIGHT. But not 'ah! there's glare on my screen!' bright. It gives the perfect amount of natural looking light that is easy on the eyes. It also comes with two spare replaceable batteries, but I honestly can't imagine using those anytime soon. I've been using the Verso with my Kindle every night since I purchased it, and it shows no signs of fading.
With these awesome features and ease of use, the Verso was a strong contender when I was shopping for booklights. The $19.99 price just sealed the deal. Overall, it's a fantastic product for the money, and I would highly recommend it to those looking for a little e-book illumination.
When I loaned it to my son during a power outage at his house, he liked it so well, I had to buy another for myself--you know how that is :). Because the Mighty Bright is rather heavy (its only downside for me) I decided to try a different light. The weight of the Mighty Bright isn't an issue when I'm reading using a stand, but when holding the Kindle I was aware of the extra weight and depending on how I was sitting or reclining, that weight sometimes made for a balancing issue or tiring hand.
I decided to try the Belkin light because it's not so heavy. It is in fact much lighter but it had other issues. The clip is adjustable but is not a spring clip, rather it slides from a narrower opening to a wider opening, but that's all. It fit fine on the Kindle 2 alone (too big for the slimmer Kindle 3, by the way), and even accommodated the cover back, but would not fit the Kindle plus two thickness of the cover when it is folded back. Because of the Belkin's somewhat bulky clip even though you can attach it to one thickness of cover and the Kindle, or two thickness of cover when folded back with the Kindle resting in front of it, the result is too lumpy to sit smoothly in the stand and you can't even hold it well if you don't like the front cover dangling free. Not satisfactory at all. Obviously this is not a problem if you don't use a cover, but I do.Read more ›

This is the perfect solution for reading a kindle that does not have its own backlight in the dark. It's lightweight so it doesn't weigh down the kindle while you're holding it.Published on January 23, 2014 by Stephanie Suriano
Very easy to use ,compact and adjustable.Provides good amount of light.does not get in the way.love it.recommended by my sisterPublished on January 9, 2014 by Lauren
Excellent light, thought it produces a bit of glare if used in complete darkness. But it's a great tool to have, and good for any book, not just a Kindle.Published on December 4, 2013 by H. P. Canady III
It works for a time, but if your reading person needs a light for extended periods of time, this won't do it. Can't handle a lot nights of light time.Published on October 2, 2013 by Torie
