Arc Light
Verso Arc Light for E-Readers
By LightWedge

When a traditionalist bucks their traditional book-toting ways in favor of the awesome convenience an e-reader offers, it’s cause for celebration. Hey, it’s a big deal for these folks. Cake, ice cream, and party hats are more than appropriate! And so is a small welcome gift—how about a light made specifically for e-readers? If they’re used to reading in low light with a book light, they’ll thank you because the frames on e-readers are often too narrow to accommodate a traditional book light without blocking the display.

The Verso Arc Light delivers bright, even light with interchangeable cuffs to fit your particular model of e-reader. The arcing neck glides up into “on” position and down for “off.” It’s rechargeable via the included USB to micro-USB cable, and gets up to 15 hours of light on a single charge.

I've had several book lights but this one beats them all! Spendy but I thought I'd try it. The thing it, its brighter than all the other popular ones I have tried. I put it up side by side with the most popular bookight that Amazon sells, and this one beats them all, it covers all the way to the bottom of both Kindles I own, the 6" and also the 9" DX. It is super lightweight so it doesnt add to the weight of my readers. It fits very snug, yet is easy to remove. It comes with a USB charger that plugs into my laptop, so I can charge while I'm using my computer. I'm so glad, the battery thing was driving me crazy, and getting expensive replacing those batteries. Falling asleep with it on was costing me money! I highly recommend the Verso Light Wedge, I'm thrilled with it!

I have been looking for a good kindle light for my 2nd generation Kindle since this summer. I did not want one with batteries. I tried to find the kindle case with the built in light but the ones I found were for the latest kindle. This one has a rechargeable battery through a computer via the usb port. An added bonus is that the kindle usb electrical outlet adapter also works with this light so you can charge it through an electrical outlet too. The light is very small strong LED light that covers the kindle from top to bottom. It is a little pricey but well worth it. I am delighted with it.

Update: March, 2011

I just wanted to add some more info after having owned this light for about 3 months now. I have had to downgrade my rating of it and thought the reasons why might be valuable to some here. I am still pleased with how bright this light is, the design, placement, and the weight are all good. What has become negative to me though is the battery setup and the dependability of the light source.

I originally thought that the battery charge time was a side effect of it being a new item. I have several new rechargeable items that require longer charge times the first time. I am sad to say that this takes forever to charge! I don't read for long durations at a time usually but I read almost every night. I find I can get about 1 week of reading out of this light before charge which is fine, but it takes it HOURS to charge, occasionally over 12 hours for some reason. I have often had to unplug the device before it was finished because I began charging it in before leaving for work, only to find that it's not finished charging that night when I am ready to read. It seems to have a roughly 1:1 ratio for charge time and battery life, every hour you want it to run is an hour you will have to charge. This seems very excessive to me. I don't understand how new battery technology works or what they had to do to have a long term light rechargeable battery in this device but I don't own anything else and have not for years that requires such an excessive charge time. It also means that if I forget to charge the device and want to use the light that I can't just partially charge it for 20 minutes or so and get a decent enough battery life to read that night before charging. I have to do this with phones and the like often.

I thought this item was a *little* overpriced, but it is worth the extra money. It doesn't have much of a glare, it's bright enough to reach the bottom of the page without keeping my significant other awake, and I love that it's rechargeable. It also fits perfectly on my Kindle 3.

The only thing I wish were different about it is that it came with a carrying case or something. It would be nice if it had come in a hard plastic case so that it doesn't get smashed when traveling. I think the price dissuades people from buying it, but in my opinion it's the best light out there for the Kindle.

I've used it, charged it, and used it again without any problems.

I tend to obsess about finding the perfect solution for things, and this happened also with my search for a light for my new kindle touch, that I absolutely love. I ended up trying 7 different lights, and will post this comparison as a review for all of them. Hopefully others can benefit from my experience...

- Might Bright XtraFlex2: It is, indeed, mighty bright, but more in scope than in intensity. It casts light on a HUGE area, enough to disturb my partner in bed... On the kindle itself, it is only slightly brighter than other lights. Not enough to justify its size in my opinion. Which brings us to its other flaw - it is BIG. The clip is too large to clip straight onto the top of the kindle. I had to clip it diagonally. It seemed to work and be stable that way, but it is a big beast, and would not be convenient for travel, for me. Given that the illumination onto the kindle itself was only slightly brighter than other lights, I didn't think it was a good solution.

- Verso clip-on: Good travel size, very very blue light, not very bright, and it actually POPPED OFF my kindle when I tried to adjust the head of the light to shine in a slightly different direction. And while it's fairly small, it does not fold in any particular way, so it's not very compact.

- Verso Arc: Nice form factor, but I found the bright but somewhat uneven, and worst of all (which is why I returned it), if I held it in bed in a particular angle that I happen to like, the light reflected off the top of the screen in a really annoying way. Also, the light was VERY much on the blue end of the spectrum ("cold").

- Octovo: Also a compact light, but I found it very weak.

- Belkin Clip-On: As *light*, this was the best light of all.
