Verso Rechargeable Wrap Light for Kindle,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Verso Rechargeable Wrap Light for Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Keyboard (Paper) (Accessory)
This is a great light for any Kindle, and the best part is it's rechargeable so you never need to replace batteries.
The Pros...It's lightweight, and easy to attach to the Kindle with either of the 2 cuffs provided. The smaller "A" cuff is suggested for attaching directly to any Kindle. I have a leather cover, and actually used the larger "B" cuff so both the cover and Kindle fit inside the cuff snuggly. The light can be unwrapped and positioned in whatever way is most comfortable for you. It lights up the screen brightly and evenly. I haven't tested the 15 hour charge claim, but it does seems to last a long time. When not in use, the light can be coiled back into the small plastic storage unit. Light is only an ounce, so much lighter than the additional 7+ ounces of a lighted Kindle cover. You can also use this on real books (huh? remember them?), so quite versatile.
The Cons.. If you use a Kindle cover, you can't close cover without removing the light. The light goes on so easily it's not a big deal, but I wish there was a carrying case for the light/USB cord. The other downer is the $39.99 price, but I figure it's worth it since you'll never have to buy new batteries. Overall I'd recommend it!

How fast did the light get to you?

I have the Verso rechargeable as well. While I love the light I was disappointed it didn't come with a case. The push button turns on very easily and many times when I went to use it I had no light (because I didn't know it had been turned on by accident in my bag). I now keep it in a little tupperware container so it doesn't get turned on accidentally. The other thing I found is that the wrap around light has become lose so it tends to "droop"
