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.Read more ›
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.
- 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.Read more ›

broke after less than a year. The open arm thing is too flimsy. It has a great compact look, but it doesn't stand up to frequent reading.Published on November 13, 2013 by Anne McIntyre
