I bought two of these lights, one for my mother's Kindle and Go! Jacket, and one for mine and the Executive Jacket. The light itself is great: very easy to use, three levels of illumination, and unlike the ones that clip or clamp on, it has an unobtrusive design and there's no worry about where to store it -- it just folds down & out of the way when you're done using it. The lowest level of illumination I find good to increase the contrast of the text when the ambient light isn't very bright. In a dark room, I sometimes use the middle level, but more often the brightest one. The arm makes adjusting the light very easy. One thing to bear in mind: in the jackets in which the sleeve for the light is on the left-hand, spine side of the reader, the light folds away neatly and is protected when you're not reading. My Executive jacket has the sleeve on the left-hand side, and I love it. I can also keep it folded away when I'm reading in good light and it doesn't interfere with using the right-hand page-turn buttons (I'm right-handed). On the other hand, my mother's Go! jacket has the sleeve on the right, and this seems to be the new design for the jackets. In this case, you need to be aware that the light is not at all protected when you're not reading and you may want to carry the Kindle in your purse or other bag. It also gets in the way of using the right-hand page turn buttons if you want to read with it off and folded down. I've found that I have to have it up even when I'm not using it because otherwise, it makes the ereader difficult to hold and interferes with the page-turn buttons. It also makes it easy to accidentally turn on the light, which I hadn't found to be the case when using my Executive jacket. If you plan to carry your Kindle in a purse, briefcase, or other bag, or if you're right-handed and will often be reading without using the light, I recommend buying a case in which the light folds away into the spine. It's a superior design, in my opinion. The light is great, though, so I'm giving it five stars. (I also reviewed the Go! jacket and mentioned the problem with the design there.)
The light does not fit well with an m edge case for the Kindle Touch. It sits on the outside edge and the light extends beyond the lower border of the case. The strap which tucks into the case does not fully slide in with the bulk of the battery from the light.
I just purchased the new Kindle Touch and a cover and new light for it. I was suprised to see that they have not come out with a smaller light for the new Kindle Touch. It hangs down below the case when inserted, and I'm concerned that the light will go on when I'm travelling with it. Since the new Kindle is smaller than the 3rd version, I'd like to see a smaller light that fits better. Other than that, the light is terrific--3 brightness choices are great!
Love that the light fits into the M-Edge cover and it doesn't add a lot of weight. I also like that there are 3 intensities. The light covers then entire screen which is an improvement over their older model. However, the touch-activated power is too sensitive and turns on too easily in my bag, which wastes batteries. Also, on occasion, the light starts blinking rapidly. I have to hit the power switch to bring it back to a constant light.
Hi Dorene! It sounds like the blinking you're referring to is the auto shut-off feature where the light will turn itself off after 60 min. to prevent draining the battery. Touching the sensor keeps the light turned on.
I love this product! The fact that it fits into the jacket so neatly and is fairly unobtrusive is wonderful. However, the "Improvements" are not so great. I find the touch far too sensitive and the "auto shut off" extremely annoying. I typically read for more than an hour at a time and find the blinking after an hour to be intrusive and annoying. I understand that this is to prevent battery drain but I wish I had the option to shut it off. All in all, I prefer the previous model with the switch but unfortunately that is no longer available.
I had the previous model of the eluminator and read this version was a lot brighter and distributed the light more evenly. I was skeptical until I bought one and tried it out. It actually IS a lot brighter and the light fills the screen better. The touch power "switch" is awesome. This model is exceedingly better than its predecessor. So worth paying for the upgrade.
Nice tool for ebook readers, and it also works for normal books, grace to the attaching system, that works on book covers as well. Now my husband can sleep without yelling to shut the light off :)) thank you!
I bought the original e-luminator light by m-edge at Best Buy the night before my last surgery. Great light! I noticed that they have a newer version that's a bit different With neuropathy in my hands, I was having trouble with the little switch. Plus, I'd fall asleep with it on and use up batteries. I ordered the new one from m-edge for $19.99 and free shipping (just took a while to get here). It came yesterday. The touch feature to turn it on and adjust three brightness levels is super easy. It flashes at you after an hour so to keep it on all I had to do was tap the control switch to keep it on. The "goose neck" is a little shorter, but best of all it has a swivel at the base. I've always put the "paddle" at the top between the cover and my nook. It sits far enough back that it doesn't cover the nook button. Still just uses one AAA battery. I highly recommend it for the e-ink screens, but especially for anyone with arthritis
The light is great. It is easy to use & has 3 strenghths, so easy in that way as well. I would recommend this product to anyone.
Overall, this is a great kindle light. It fits well in the jackets and lights the screen well. It is bright enough and has an optional brighter setting. It's not perfect though. The touch button is so sensitive that it is easy to bump it while stored and turn it on. I remove the battery to solve that problem. In addition, while the neck is flexible, it doesn't always stay where we want it. This is more a problem with my husband's e-luminator than mine. We have different colors, but it shouldn't make a difference. We both use it with a Latitude jacket. The issues are not enough for us to not rec the product, but some people might find them more annoying than we do.
I purchased this light in white, which looks so nice and clean!, to go with the Leisure Jacket I purchased for my Kobo e-reader. This is a powerful, easy to use light to use while reading at night. You won't be disappointed.
I got this for Christmas from my wife and it is awesome. I love the 3 way touch capability, and it goes perfectly with my Kindle 4 go jacket (true it is a little long, but let's be honest, I don't usually have it on the go jacket unless I'm using it at night). Overall I am very satisfied with this light!
My daughter got this for Christmas and it fits perfectly in her m-edge case for the nook simple touch. The light provides ample output for reading without any glare. The auto off is nice too, especially since turning off lights is not tops on a kid's list of things to do. LOL You can't go wrong with this light!
Thought £50+ too much on amazon for jacket for my new Kindle3G. Got hot pink M_Edge Go jacket in Tesco for £10.47! Then the lovely M_Edge light from amazon which works a treat. Very happy
The Overview states, "This booklight features a fully adjustable steel neck for fine-tuning the light's position while the slim support arm slides into the convenient, sewn-in pocket featured in every jacket in M-Edge's product library"; however, it is NOT compatible with the Incline Jacket. I guess I will either be forced to return my e-Luminator or opt for another jacket, but I thought the Incline offered the most versatility. I'm not a fan of false advertising and this is going to cause me an unnecessary trip back to the store.
We are sorry for any misinformation! We have corrected the information in the description and features.
love it! get one!
Great light for readign my Sony WiFi when a bit of light needed. I purchased the Exective Jacket and decided to return and invest in the eLuminator light after reading the reviews posted here. Have no regrets it's a perfect light.
This light works great with my Kindle and alot less than buying a new cover with a light.
I received and have been using the e-Luminator Touch Booklight. The light is brighter than the previous booklight I had. (not an e-luminator) I am very happy with the book light and would certainly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a really good book light. Even better it fits nicely in my M-Edge Cover but it can also be used with regular books or magazines as well.
This is my 2nd e-luminator. When I learned they had discontinued the original I was a bit skeptical. Great surprise to learn this new one is so much better! Love the auto-shut down feature. Light is much brighter. Kudos to all!
I purchased the previous version of this light as well as its companion cover for my Kindle Keyboard version. It worked seamlessly up until recently. As the lighting and convenience of storage, right in the case made it by far the best book light I ever owned, I was distressed when it developed an issue. I contacted customer service via email and explained the problem I was having with the light. I received a friendly response back within 24 hours. Without going into detail my situation had some mitigating circumstances of which their representative was able to resolve and as a result I was able to obtain a replacement light. I have now purchased another Kindle and needlessly to say I will be ordering this light and its companion cover for it as well as I found both the products as well as their customer service to be exceptional!
I've had several of the other models of this light for various covers. I hesitated to buy this one because I had one already for the cover and Kindle I am now using. However, I was never quite happy with any of these lights. I never could get them to light the whole screen and each time I used them I would have to fight to get it in the best position which still always left part of the screen unlighted. I am thrilled with this model. It is very easy to position and lights the entire screen easily. As a person who frequently falls asleep reading, I love the sleep version. I like the graphite version and just hope it will work with the new Kindle Touch covers. The battery cover is hard to work, but I am delighted with your new improvements. It was a good purchase.
I bought a Go! Jacket for my Kobo Touch and then subsequently bought the e-Luminator light to go with it. I was very disappointed to see that the light is longer than the jacket and is therefore likely to get damaged when not in use. For an expensive combination of products, I expected a perfect fit. However, each item on its own is of a high standard finish, its just a shame that the finished combination isnt of a more suitable fit for the Kobo Touch
I use this light for my Kindle Touch in a case from another manufacturer and it works great. The light slips in between the Kindle and the case. I have no problem with glare as the light is fully adjustable. I haven't yet had the problem with accidentally pushing the light on by storing it with the Kindle case, but probably it would have been better to have an on off switch than the touch feature. I like that the light has three light levels for the amount of light needed as I need only the lowest setting in a dim room. I would recommend this light as it is very versatile and fully adjustable.
I got 4 of these lights to go with the 4 covers I bought for the whole fam damily. The 3 gifts were much appreciated. Personally, I'm really glad this light is so adjustable, as I prefer to have it shine from the bottom of the page up, rather than top down. Keeps the spot glare off the screen and doesn't shine on the light-colored (and light-catching) Amazon-kindle logo at the top of my K3. However, I'm glad I don't drag my Kindle around much, as the light hanging out of the right side of the case isn't an ideal situation. You lose one star for that. Also, one would do well to get 12 hours out of a battery at high-intensity, at that point it wasn't totally dead, but it was too dim to read by, and there was darn little difference between the 3 levels of light on a low battery. Switching out the battery was super easy. All in all, this is my favorite light I've used so far with my Kindle. Solve the placement problem and you'll earn that penultimate star.
I love this light! It makes such a difference when reading at night and a wonderful thing to have when flying at night. You can read and not disturb anyone else. Works well with the Executive Cover for Kindle.
Great little light. 3 different settings, lowest is more than enough to read in bed without annoying my spouse. Lightweight fits great in the case.
This version of the eLuminator is better than the original in many ways, with one exception... PROS: Better touch-sensitive light control. Easier to fold for storage. CON: The flexible arm is shorter than the previous version and is not as easy to position. Please note that this is a minor complaint.
I just received this light and it seems fine, gives off enough light and it fits perfectly in my EDGE-EXECUTIVE Cover. One complaint, the battery cover is very difficult to get off...I am a big guy and I was struggling with this thing. I was afraid I was going to brake it. Finally, i stuck a piece of tape to the cover and pulled it off that way. otherwise, a nice product.
I like to read in bed and not bother my husband. This is the perfect solution!
When folded, the light is longer than the new Kindle Touch so it sticks out the bottom of the case. I'm afraid it might get damaged if I'm not careful. Other than that, I'm very happy with it.
I've always read with a flashlight at night before bed. After getting my kindle I decided that was getting old and I needed a book light. This fits perfectly on my M-Edge cover and is nice and bright!
Great product! Easy to turn on/off and focus on the page. Would have been helpful to know if the packaging it comes in is recyclable.
Easy to use, lighting is very uniform, does not glare, very compact, only one battery required, auto turn-off feature is great. Highly recommended!
Great book light! Best ever.
For such a compact size, this light does a fantastic job at illuminating the surface of my Kindle, very powerful light source, stays secure in my cover; would highly recommend.
Small and compact, the dimmer is switch with 3 light setting is great. The dimmer must operate off heat: I have tried turning it on with pencils, etc., and it must respond to body like a regular touch lamp. The lamp neck tends to be less stiff than desired, but on such a small scaled that it would not be noticed by most. Will recommend to anyone, and may even buy more as gifts.
Well constructed, and I love the touch activated 3 levels of illumination. Well worth the price.
Wow! A single battery, lightweight reading light for a Kindle (or Nook) cover... with multiple position adjustments courtesy of the ratcheting battery case and a flexible light stalk... and on top of it all, the light adjusts to three different intensities, low, medium, and bright. What more can you ask for in an e-reader light?
This e-Luminator is a huge improvement over the last one (even though I liked the earlier model). Now everyone in my family wants to change to this one! Thanks, M-Edge
This is amust have if you are an avid reader and use your Kindle a lot. This fits the small slot on the M-Edge Latitude Jacket. Highly recommended.
I bought an E-Laminator to go with your cover for my new Kindle Keyboard. It is wonderful, and I read in bed in the middle of the night without disturbing my wife. I am very grateful to have your products!
Bought M-Edge case earlier for my Kindle & wanted light but every other light clipped on. So when bought case for world traveler friend I bought both of us lights. Love the 3 brightness settings and how it fits inside the case when closed. Positioning it can sometimes be a little annoying but not enough to toss it.
I bought this for my husband for Christmas. He is very happy with it but thought it should come with the AAA battery as the cost would be minimal but the buy and go concept would go a long way towards customer service. Siaid he liked the multiple light levels.
Perfect fit inside my leather M-Edge case for the B&N Simple Touch nOOK.
Superior to previous model. Very good lighting. Good idea for auto turnoff.
This is a terrific light! One thing I'm disappointed about: I bought my M-Edge jacket first (which included the little pull-out tab advertising the light) and the light a few weeks later. I didn't realize that the light doesn't store inside the book jacket - it hangs alongside when not in use, and it gets tangled with other items in my purse. Maybe my complaint is more about the jacket (misleading) than the light.
After purchasing the newest M-Edge, I contacted Customer Service and told them I like the original better. They said they would be glad to exchange this one for the older version as there were some in stock that weren’t on the web page. I was so pleased with the service, that I decided to give the newer one a try. I first thought it wouldn’t change positions so that there was no bend in the hard end, but I figured out that it does and now it does everything I want it to do. I’m very pleased with this version and glad I decided to keep it. I would definitely recommend this item to any electronic book users.
Love it! Great to have different lighting levels.
I keep my booklight in my custom M Edge Kindle case. I love the intensity of the light. However, the tap controls are so sensitive I find that the light is on when I don't expect it to be. This runs the battery down. I would prefer a hard switch to turn my light on and off.
had an older light, it broke, bought the new one but missed my old one. Contacted these folks and they send me the spare part !! Just did it. Now that is customer service!
5 Stars all the way! This is most definitely the best and most versatile booklight I have used. One of the things I like best about it is that it fits into my M-Edge cover for my Nook and nestles in the side without interfering with my reading. It is always there and I don't have to go look for it when I need it. It takes AA batteries -- which is another plus because they are easily bought at any local store.
Positive Points +Light weight +Many adjustable settings to get the angle just the way you want it. Flexible neck is excellent +Takes AAA batteries so you have the option of using rechargeable batteries +Lighting in pitch black settings work great. The light is not too concentrated in one spot but is spread out evenly to cover the whole reading area. You will be using the medium and high settings. The low setting is unnecessary as it is too dim for any situation. Negative Points -Most annoying feature is the battery cover is extremely difficult to remove. I was afraid I was going to break the entire thing just trying to get it off because the whole thing is made of very light weight plastic. Gladly I didn't break it. TIP: For easier removal, you can use something like a knife or thin nail filer to wedge in between the cover and the body to help slide it off. Insert the wedge on the part closest to the light. Do not try to pry off the lid, just try to slide it off using the wedge. This worked very well for me -The paper clip feature only works well for cases designed for it. You won't really be able to use your light on the ereader itself, so you absolutely need to have a thin case of some sort. Most other ereader lights don't require a case -Paper clip should be designed in such a way that it will not make wrinkles on paper -May easily turn on by itself when placed in a bag while travelling due to the touch feature -Would be nice if the paper clip could fold inwards for less bulky storage/travel
while this battery compartment is better (last one fell off & lost a piece) the gooseneck is shorter & it is hard to get good coverage on the kindle page. The previous model fit nicely down the side -this one either hangs out below or lays accross the top. What I really need is a new battery screw on for my old one!
Anyone in need of a replacement battery cap, for either the e-Luminator2 or e-Luminator Touch, please contact us (using the Contact Us link at the bottom of this page) and we will be happy to help! Take Care, Jackie - Team M-Edge
I like it okay but find that it turns on too easily. Sometimes I discover the light on when I lift the Kindle case out of my book bag. Agree with some other comments that the low light setting is too low to give any help at all.
I was the author of the review entitled "Dead, Dead, Dead" on the illuminator 2. I feel compelled to say things are copacetic now. They shipped a second illuminator #2, defective. i sent it back, and they asked if i could wait another week for an improved device. Of course, (they sent me a prepaid shipping label for the defective one also). Now having the #3 in my kindle, i must say it is a great improvement, can use with real paper books, 3 intensities, and a much improved battery setup (which i always thought was the problem). Voila!! Perhaps the best customer service i have encountered in the last few years, i am totally impressed. thank you m-edge.
This book light was terrible. For starters, it didn't even fit well in the M-Edge Kindle cover for which it was designed. It was difficult to position and angle the light so that it illuminated the entire Kindle reading surface, so you had to constantly adjust it. The light (despite having three brightness settings) was too dim, and it burned out a fresh battery after only a few hours of use. The battery case was extremely difficult to remove and replace. This is probably the most poorly conceived and badly functioning piece of junk I've ever purchased in the last 5 years. This will be the last time I ever buy an M-Edge product.
We're glad you gave the e-Luminator Touch a try, and we're sorry it did not meet your needs. Please contact our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Thank you! -Aubrey, Team M-Edge
It sheds enough light to light up the page. It fits nicely into the cover making it very convenient.
I love this book light! I had a similar one that clipped onto books, but it was hard to drag it out and clip it onto my medge Kindle cover when I needed it. It's awkward to store near my reading chair. I asked for this light as a gift and I meant for it to go with the new medge cover I got for the Kindle Touch I was also getting as a gift. Unfortunately, the Touch and I were not a good match, so I had to return it and the beautiful leather medge cover I'd gotten. I kept the light, though, because it fits into the medge cover I have on my Kindle II. The cover doesn't fit as snugly as it did before I added the light, but it still works fine. I love the touch controls and the way the light swivels. I'm grateful to other reviewers who convinced me to try this book light when I already had a usable book light, because this one is so much more convenient and it does a better job of lighting the Kindle page. I'm not sure if I'll be able to use this light on a paperback or hardback book, but I have the old light for that if I need it. I used to use my other book light only when the power went out, but I like this light so much that I use it instead of my reading lamp for more reading comfort when it gets dark.
i really love this lite,could'nt be happier,works great.
I received an e-Luminator Touch booklight as a gift. There was a glitch with it, but the great customer service team took care of it immediately. These days it is really refreshing to find a company that values customers. Great product, great service!
I wish there was a way to safely fold this into the cover, or safely fold it into itself. I don't know how to travel with it, wihtout worrying that I'll break the bulb or that it will turn itself on and waste the battery.
3stages. Double tap to turn on. Low. medium and very bright. Super low power LED.
The light is fine. My only complaint is how it attaches to the cover. If you place cover with light attached in your bag it will get bumped and/or accidentially turned on.
This light could not be more perfect if it tried. The light has three levels so you get just the right amount of light with the touch of a finger. The touch control makes it very easy to adjust the level of light, turn it on or turn it off. The flexible arm allows you to aim the light where you get full page coverage with no shadows and hence no eye strain. The light fits into the cover at the side and I use it with the M-Edge cover for my Kindle but also with a generic cover for my Kobo. Best light you will ever buy!
I love that this thing shuts off after a while! I always fall asleep while reading :P
Nice and compact. Stores easily in cover. Like the three levels of lightening. Uses more common and easier to obtain batteries. Definitely like all M-Edge products. Would recommend them to anyone.
Really happy with this light. Love how it slips into the hidden pocket in the GO! case. Took a little playing to find the right spot so that I didn't get a reflection on the screen. Love the fact that it turns off after I've fallen asleep reading. Well built arm on the light...stays where it should. Probably only complaint is it's slightly longer then the case, but being that's my only complaint I can't see lower the star count. I would highly suggest the light/cover combination to anyone as it has worked well for me. One other thing I might suggest would be a velcro piece to hold the cover's face to the back while reading.....But I added one of m own to do that.
The light is perfect! It fits into a slot designed in the M-Edge Kindle cover that I had. The light is positioned properly to illuminate the page. A great product at a reasonable price.
I love this light, especially since it fits my Kindle and Nook cases. Bright enough and compact enough,
I ordered this light when I ordered a case for my Kindle 3. I love this light. It is lightweight, has a great light, and has an adjustable flexible steel neck that allows it to be put in several positions! I love it!
Was very disappointed with this little light. The light turns on with the slightest touch, even an unintentional one, so it often turns on when I have been moving the e-book around and haven't actually meant to turn the light on. Also, it sits outside of the e-book cover and is very inconvenient and unsightly.
We're so sorry you weren't happy with your light! Please contact our customer service team for help with a return if you would like. Thank you for taking the time to post a review. -Aubrey, Team M-Edge
Love the light and being able to turn it any direction,makes it very easy to read even when there is no other lighting. If you need more light to read this is the one.
It works really good and I like that it has three different settings. My only complaint is that with the kindle it has a really bad glare on the screen unless you shift it just right.
I love this accessory. I can read in near darkness and the easy to change battery is a plus for me. It goes with me everywhere my Kindle goes.
Seriously, you can't get a better light than this one. Friends have those clip on lights, and I think they are awful. Not to mention, they are easily broken or lost. I love how sturdy & flexible the light is, and how it matches the color of my kindle 3. I highly recommend this product!!
I had previously bought the prior style light and decided that since I was changing covers for my Kindle to get this new light. It fits so perfect in my cover and with the one touch and three intensities of light no matter where you are you will get a perfect amount of ligh. And with having both tthe flex neck and swivel arm you can point the light exactly how you want.
Works just like I hoped it would. I am totally happy with my purchase it is great little light the three way is wonderful. Fits on to my cover for my Kindle and I would not go with out it,
I have only used it once and it works fine. I have 2 m-edge New Yorker cases and the light goes on the outside edge so it has to be removed after each use? If I had another style of case I believe that it could slide into the case for storage. It is a very nice product.
A great light considering its small size. The light makes all the difference when reading at night. Highly recommend it as a Kindle accessory.
It fits perfectly in my executive jacket case for the Kindle Touch. I love it! The 3 light settings are perfect for when you need only a little bit of extra light or a lot of light. Would recommend!
In my opinion this is the perfect light to accompany my Kindle. I love that it stores in the spine of my Kindle cover (also a M-Edge product). It is always where I need it when I need it. It is a product that I would recommend to everyone.
It is nice and bright and much better than a clip on light that I bought before I found the e-luminator (only problem is accidently turning it on).
Works wonderfully... I am impressed such a tiny light gives off so much light. Thank you for a wonderful product.
Not only is the light for my Kindle perfect, the seller is top notch. I will continue to use again in the future.
Works well. I like the covers M-Edge covers better than any others available in their price range. Great to have light feature that sits in the cover during storage & use. When storing the light is not ideal. The neck of the light hangs past the length of the Kindle Touch. It definitely creates more opportunity to break and not fit well for travel. Need to offer a re-designed light for the smaller Kindle products.
This light is just what I wanted. I use it with the M-Edge Platform jacket and don't have issues with the light turning on accidentally.
very pleased with the product
I really have enjoyed my light, but would prefer the on/off to be a switch or something more obvious. It takes me a few touches to get it turned off and it accidentally turns on at times. Other than that, I'm very pleased with the size, amount of light, sleekness, etc.
I have no complaints about the utility of the M-edge light. I like the design, the 'storability' of the light with my Kindle Keyboard jacket, and it works well to illuminate my book when riding in a dark car without distracting the driver. The touch on/off works well, and I like the fact that it automatically shuts off if I forget.
Excellent light. One issue is that it is hard to adjust where the light shines and have it stay. The flexible neck is either not rigid enough or too short. Also the swivel point seems like a potential break point. I hope it will loosen up.
Had your previous light and liked it but always wished it were brighter and could turn itself off before draining batter and bulb life. It was like you heard me wishing!! I bought the new model for both myself and my best friend. LOVE IT!!!!
I love this little light. It tucks securly and safely into my leisure case back pocket so I always have it. And the goose neck puts the beam where I want it. I bought one for my sister when I gave her a leisure case.
Great for use with my Kindle - ordered anotherr one for my daughter - great customer service. Thanks..
i had been looking for kindle covers for a long time, this just right!
This light is wonderful. Love the three brightness settings and that it only needs one AAA battery.
Five stars for the booklight, and also five (six! seven! ten!) stars for customer service. Like some of the other reviewers, I had a problem with an earlier version of this booklight (the one with the switch), and it was replaced free of charge, no questions asked. When the replacement also died -- six months after I had purchased the original light -- customer service sent me the new model within a day of receiving my complaint. This was an overseas order, and I paid no shipping fees. I've only had the new booklight for a day, but since the problem with the old model seemed to be a problem either with the switch or the battery compartment, and both of these have been modified in the updated version, I don't expect to have any more problems. The light seems really solidly built.
What a great little gizmo! It is very easy to use, stays where you put it, even if you are laying on your side on the couch while reading, and the light covers the whole page of my 3rd generation Kindle. The three intensities are useful to minimze battery drain when high intensity is not needed. I am very pleased.
These were absolutely perfect! Some people have said they would get a kindle just so they could get the M-edge cover, (prodigy jacket for kindle in RED! it's so beautiful. This cover also allows room for the little light, which I actually use and it works perfectly. My husband can sleep while I read..
I love my eluminator book light. It is great for travelling so you don't disturb other travellers at night.
Great product. Love how the light tucks nicely into the cover!!
It is a pleasure to lie in bed reading until I fall asleep. Now I won't even need the bedside lamp. This is the perfect booklight for my Kindle
Bought the leather cover and light together. Could not be happier. Have shown it to my kindle friends and they are buying too! Fantastic!
I have a 2nd gen. Kindle M-Edge cover that hinges on the top. I LOVE it (except it is bit heavy), I have had the previous M-Edge book light made to fit it (sliding in from the side), which I loved. Did not have a problem with the white color which was mentioned by another. It died of unknown causes, (a broken wire in the neck, I am thinking)after LOTS of use. I now own the new model in graphite, which is great. It fits in the cover when not in use, and I don't notice the weight at all. I like how it hinges, much improved over 1st design, and had a problem opening the battery cover only the first time. Batteries last well. I am having a problem accidentally turning on the light when not in use, as noted by another reviewer. Wish the touch pad was on the opposite side ( near the bulb), then it wouldn't be bumped accidentally....designers take note! The 3 light levels are great, but I only use the first one, until the battery starts getting low, then use the second brightest level which is plenty of light until battery is dead. The brightest light is way more than I ever need. Over all, great product and design. If the cover were a bit lighter, M-Edge would have the PERFECT Kindle cover/booklight combo imagineable!
I ordered this light to go with my m-edge executive kindle cover. I like it a lot; it gives full coverage on the reading material and is so handy to store in the cover. I also bought the same kind of cover and this light for my daughter-in-law. She loves it as much as I do. I would highly recommend it.
I like it better than model 2. I didn't have any trouble positioning it any way I needed. The adjustable base of the stem compensates for the shorter flexible part, and I can position it better than model 2. The light is brighter. The level 1 light is OK when you have other ambient light and just need a little extra light. I agree with others that the battery cover is hard to remove. The touch switch is very touch-sensitive, lending an aura of quality. I like the switch better than the cheap-feeling switch of model 2, which was hard to turn off from the high position, without moving the switch all the way to the low position. Why would thay make a switch which has the off position in the middle, between two on-positions??
I bought the eluminator to use with my kindle and the M-Edge cover. They fit together perfectly, and look great. The light has three light settings, a flexible to neck and easy touch control. Love both M-Edge products (and the kindle).
My husband bought the M-Edge cover for me as a gift. I ordered the light a couple of days later. I am a really early riser, so no more need to turn on the bedside lamp in the wee hours and disturbing my sleeping spouse. I love it so much that I bought a cover and a light for him for Father's Day. Now we look like a couple of old nerds reading in bed with our Kindles and our nightlights. It's great!
I had no problem at all with the previous version of the light...except the white color which I did not like at all. I use a Kindle - next gen in the graphite color and a "Capital Jacket" in black and was literally about to go buy some model paint in grey to paint the light, but then this version was announced with a graphite cover and all the new improvements so I anxiously awaited. The color is great...everything is is just OK. First, it is a HUGE struggle to get the battery cover off. I mean like over ten minutes of struggling with it. If you have any hand problem (like arthrites or anything) forget it. There was nothing at all wrong with the screw cover in the last version. Secondly, three light settings, well, OK, but Setting One is so dim there isn't any lighting condition in which I can using it. Setting Two, is still too low for my taste, and Setting Three is so bright I practically need sunglasses with it. Again the two light settings on the previous version were PERFECT brightness. AND that used a switch, this touch sensor turns the light on with barely a pass so I'm constantly cycling through to turn it off. Lastly the "gooseneck" is shorter, there ARE less positions one can aim the light in. I still have the first version....I may yet find that model paint and use it instead
I like this light and would recommend it to anyone with a Kindle Touch who uses a compatible case. It's bright enough so that I can read easily; the touch control works well (too well, in some cases); it fits snugly in the case; it uses a single AAA battery so weight is not a real issue at all; it just works and works very well. That being said, I do have some suggestions for design changes — these would make a great light even better: • The battery cover seems fragile and is a bit difficult to remove. I'm using a lithium AAA battery, so I don't anticipate having to change it often. • The touch control works too well. Several times I've accidentally turned it on just when handling the Kindle with the light folded down and attached to the case — picking it up, putting it in my computer case, etc. Fortunately, I'm left-handed so I don't turn it on/off while reading. If the case were redesigned so that the light attached in the "spine" of the cover rather than the outside edge, that would solve the problem when I pick up/handle the case but I would probably turn it on/off while reading. • I wish the neck would bend and stay in place at a slightly tighter angle. It works well as it is but would be better if it would stay in place a little tighter.
Took it on the plane. Loved it on the train. Outstanding in the car (passenger of course!!). Poolside (haven't done the beach yet) you were right - - no glare. Excellent. And I very much enjoy bedtime reading. My M-Edge is a MUST. I tuck mine along the edge of my M-Edge Kindle cover and it works fine. The light does get turned on easily - but i just keep watch. Fact that the light on high is bright - i can see if on in the pocket of my briefcase. Outstanding product.
It has 3 light settings and is adjustable?! I call that a win!! :)
The light is difficult to switch on/off light, but hey it was free
You've seen all those bookstore booklights? They're crude compared to this light and not designed for the non-illuminated kindle and other readers. This design is elegant and high performance with a capacitive "touch" switch that cycles through three levels of illumination and then off. It is specifically designed to work with the silicone skin m*edge protector.
This is a wonderful light except it eats batteries...I'm on my 3rd so far. Other than that I love that it has 3 intensities of light.
Works perfectly with the case, light is excellent, no eye strain to read in the dark or semi-dark.
Nice little light works great. Just wish it had an on/off switch.
very nice light source for my Kindle that is not back-lit. Great idea and tiny so can go anywhere with me.
5 stars for it's probably great but I don't know because I returned it with the jacket unopened
My children gave me one of the older Kindles which are not back lit. I bought this light so I can read on planes etc. I received excellent service, and was very pleased with the speedy response. The light is exactly what I wanted, and does the job admirably.
Great complement to the M-Edge line of cases. However, the ,mechanism which allows you to adjust the light wears down and after a while it does not lock in place. This is my second e-Luminator and it looks like it is going down that road again; If this were resolved, I would give it a 5 star rating! Otherwise a great product.
Really like the e-Luminator Touch Booklight and the fact that it slips into the case and is discreetly folded down the center of the case without any bulk
Love the convenience, compact size and how it cleverly fits into the cover. And that it was free, was an extra bonus. But, for me, it isn't quite bright enough.
This booklight is sufficiently bright and very convenient to use as it fits perfectly in the M-edge cases.
I was disappointed at first that I couldn't get the 'built in' light like on my wife's original case, but this light is very nice. Not quite the same, but a lot better than many of the other options offered today.
This product has changed my life. Now, I can stay up late at night reading and not disturbing my husband! Love the three light settings and how you can move it around the book for the best lighting options depending on how you hold the Kindle.
I love every product I have purchased. From quality to design to functionality. They are since my Kindle two thorough my Ipad 2 my first choice.
Works great, but what am I do to when the bulb burns out? I am nervous that this item will be discontinued then.
I like the booklight as it's lightweight with different brightness settings. I did not realise how much I needed the booklight until I started using it! My only concern is that the support arm does not feel sturdy and it feels like it could break off easily but it's working well so far.
I had a previous incarnation of the e-Luminator that was "flimsy-er." The clip part of it broke fairly soon after I bought it and I have had it duct-taped since in order to use it. The newer e-Luminator has a bit of a more sturdy clip. The older e-L had a longer gooseneck that was sometimes hard to point exactly where you wanted the light to focus. The newer model has a shorter gooseneck so directing light where you want it is much easier. Two "issues" with the first design remain: This light is really only meant to be used with the case because the clip, though improved, is still flimsy. It's not something you want to handle a lot because it still seems as though it might snap (break) easily. Best to place the clip in the case and leave it there (rather than trying to use it for book reading or other purposes). The second issue is the battery case. It's hard to open. Better than having a battery case that does not stay closed. But it's too snug to manage easily when replacing batteries. Battery life seems reasonable so it's not like you have to open the battery case too often.
I love that it doesn't have to be removed when not in use.
Best e-light going, seconds to install (OK put the battery in, slot it in the case). Really love the soft touch, 3 different brightness control.
Good design that works with the case and really like the touch on/off
Good light with variable control. I do have a problem with inadvertently switching it on and not realising this because it is folded down.
The summary says it all. I have had several book lights, and this is the best by far. I love the multi-level lighting and the range of the flexible neck is fabulous. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
easily hooks into case and gives good non-glare reading. I can't believe it was free.
The light works very well. Unlike other lights I have had, it illuminates the screen for easy reading. I like that it slides right into the side of the case and stays put. My only complaint is that the directions are not very clear on the packaging.
Lightweight and throws off very good light.
Once I figured out how to put it into the slot (because it has a "paper clip" type design, I thought part of it went in the slot and part on the back of the case), I was quite happy with it-particularly the choices in light intensity and being able to adjust how the light was directed. I wish it had its own case as I worried it would break in my luggage. I solved this by saving the packaging it came in and using that.
I appreciate getting it. It is very nice and small.
This light provides just the right amount of non -reflective light for your Kindle Fire! I like to use it when I am in bed and it adds just enough light so I can turn off all other lights and spotlight the device. It's very handy and every Kindle user would enjoy using it!
Excellent, fits Kindle 3 Custom Jacket perfectly.
This is a great book light, I wasn't expecting much since it was free but I really like it.
This is the 2nd light of this type that I've gotten--the first one didn't work anymore.I had ordered it on Amazon but they don't carry this type of light now & a friend suggested I try to see if I could order it from your web site.It's a little different from the first light I had but I am more than satisfied w/it.The light is nice & bright & covers the whole page & it slides right into the slot on my Kindle cover so its always handy.I'm very happy w/this purchase & appreciate the fact that the shipping was free--thank you!
Provides enough light for easy night reading. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is that if the light is angled so you can see the lightbulb itself, it tends to distract you from what you're reading.
It is very nifty and i would give it a 5 star rating if it wasn't for the fact that it can turn itself on when you rummage through your bag and accidentally touch the on button. Wish there was an off off button.
Product design,petite size, functionality, ease of operation all really great.
I would never have tried a booklight, but this little item came as a gift with my MEdge order. My husband uses it more than I do, and he really likes it. He has never read before going to sleep, but he takes his Kindle in its MEdge nylon case with this booklight to bed and reads until he's sleepy. He's really enjoying himself, and that makes me happy.
works great but the on switch is to easy to hit and turn on by mistake
Great little light with three brightness options.
nice little light and it fits well on the case.
Very happy to receive this free gift. All in working order.
This light is awesome! I LOVE the three levels of brightness! Very good quality & easy to use.
This light is a perfect fit for the Latitude Case. Easy to use, three brightness levels, maneuverable and long lasting. Stores easily and conveniently in the front zipper pocket of the Latitude Case and takes 1 AAA battery (of which several replacements may also be stored in the zipper pocket). Great bang for the buck. A must have for the nocturnal reader.
N/A, since I have a Kindle Paperwhite, I passed the booklight along to a friend.
I love this light, easy to use and works great at allowing me to read without disturbing my husband while he sleeps.
Light slots neatly into Trip Case we purchased. Enables my son to read in bed at night without disturbing his younger brother.
At spected delivered time or even faster. Deliver costs to Europe a little expensive.
I enjoy using the light; it is bright and easy to use. The only drawback is I often accidentally turn it on.
The light adds no weight to my cover, is easily removed, tucks into place easily and offers good adjustable light. Great product!
Very convenient and easy to use. Fits nicely in the Kindle without blocking anything.
I just can't believe you guys are giving these away for free; another win.
Additional gift for purchase of the case - great!
Fits perfectly in the case. My husband loves it.
Great Light! And it was free with my order!
I wasn't even looking for a light, but am very happy with this light for my Kindle.
Extremely difficult to remove cover from battery case. I just leave it off. Bulb goes dim and then out. Later it will come on bright again for a short time. I was going to return it until I remembered that it was free.

This came free with my cover. I don't need it since my device has a light, but my daughter has been using it with her (unlighted) Kindle and she's enjoying it.
This is so much better than previous lighting options I have tried. I like to read in bed next to my husband and he doesn't complain about it being any brighter than previous lights I have tried, but I notice a huge difference. I can finally clearly see the entire page at once!
I did not ask my granddaughters about the light yet but I thought that was a nice touch adding it to the Kindle cover.
The light is "touchy" and I've accidentally turned it on a couple of times, but it works well with my M-Edge cover and is adjustable.
I first purchased two of these lights at Walmart for a trip to NYC when we would need lights on the tour bus. We love them. My mother received a kindle for Christmas so I immediately sought out another for her. They slip in nicely between the kindle and case and curve around the top of the kindle for storage. The battery lasts a long time. It also works well with a regular book.
I would not give it any stars, it does not work!!!! I was very disappointed because one of the reasons why i bought the case was because it came with a "free" light that was such a nice compact size, the light I already have is bigger and bulkier so I am very disappointed

We were happy to get this for free with our case! It works great, with both the Kindle case and the Nook case we have.
Goes out automatically ....batteries should be included ....I would pay extra for that.
The light fits very neatly in the cover and is super simple to use. The touch light is a bit too easy to switch on mistakenly. It illuminates the Kindle very well.
This is a nice light. It has 3 different levels of light & works nicely with kindle.
We haven't really used it yet, but put the batteries in and tried it with the case. It seemed to work great.
Love how the light has three different view levels.
I received this free for buying 3 cases. got for my neighbor girls
I like that it has three settings and uses a AAA battery that can be found anywhere.
Shipping was very fast and the product was exactly as described. It hasn't been used yet since it's being given as a present, but I am hopeful that it will be perfect. (and you can't argue with free especially with no S&H charges added! Awesome service, great site!
Had one that I had to change the battery quite often, they contacted me and let me know it was defective and would send me a replacement which they did right away! I am so happy with the quality of products and the customer service is just stellar!
find this item very good
having a light is great ..i have to play with it to stop a patch of glare but I think i have the kinks worked out now
I like my little light. It works like it is supposed to and the shipped it fast. Thankyou
Nice touch with having 3 different light settings and light turning off after one hour of non-use. The fact that it was free with my Go!Case purchase was a nice add-on to my purchase.
I love the light EXCEPT the on button is so darn sensitive! If my fingers/hand so much as lightly brushes up against it, it is ON! Other than that, it is a great product.
I have owned four of these and they are great. However, I'm not quite as pleased with this touch model and prefer the old switch type.
Light comes in very handy. I like that it has three options fot the brightness of the light.
Have used it as a nightlight at home as well as on a recent cross-country flight. Works great.Just what I was looking for.
Fits easily into my Kindle case and has 3 brightness settings. The arm is a little shaky after you use it a few times but still works fine.
The light came as a free bonus with a cover I bought for a friend as a gift. She loves the light. Wish your products were available in stores here.
The light is really good at night or when the other light souces are not enough for reading my Kindle. It fits in my Kindle cover just right. It takes standard batteries too.
This is an amazingly bright tiny light that is perfect for reading when you need a little more light right on your book or Kindle. It "taps" on with I think two (might be three) different levels of brightness so you can choose the amount of light that suits you. Again, M-Edge has a nice variety of items at great prices and their customer service is first class.
perfectly nice light- need a triple A battery
This light fits perfectly in the GO! case, easy to use, compact. Solves the night reading issue. thanks.
I love how it has different brightness settings. This is a great light!
Could be brighter but fits nicely in the cover. The battery lid is really hard to remove for battery replacement. However, it was free so I shouldn't complain at all!!
Works okay. I seem to have to change the batteries more often than they indicated.
I wasn't sure what to expect with the light, but was pleasantly surprised to find out it was touch-controlled and had several levels of brightness. Pretty neat.
It's bigger than I thought. It's difficult to remove from the case once installed.
I haven't used this yet so I can't really rate it but it looks nice and works.
I already own this book light, and I love it! it's great and easy to use
I use this with my kindle touch and it is great! Fits right into the executive jacket and is not in the way at all. A good product.
The e-Luminator book light works perfectly with the medge cases. On a friends recommendation, I bought the booklight together with a case for my first kindle, and i've been a believer ever since! Be aware that this booklight can go through batteries if you're a heavy user, but I use rechargable batteries and it's fine. Generally, I find this booklight uses less battery power than other lights I've used.
It upvalues the case, much better reading!
Got this as a bonus with my cover. You can't beat that. Great light to use with my paperbacks.
This is a slightly shorter light than my previous light but it works very well.
I have purchased these lamps in the past as gifts and one for myself. The are easy to adjust for the Kindle Custom Jackets; providing the perfect amount of light for reading. In a previous order the light I gave as a gift not only does he use it for his Kindle; but slips it out of the jacket and uses for his mini computer.
Wish they hadn't shortened the flexible "neck" of the light... It works ok, but longer like the style I received earlier this year would be nicer...
Haven't had the occasion to use it too much yet, but the size and amount of light is marvelous--also the style.
The eluminator light fits perfect with the case.
It's a great little light, small, compact. I would highly recommend it.
This light does the job perfectly! I like that I can adjust the intensity level as my eyes get accustomed to the different ambient light. Having a single AAA battery powering it means replacements are readily available. It doesn't add too much weight and love how it fits in my Medge covers. Best of all is that it light up the kindle page evenly and without hot spots. I've tried a few other styles of lights from other manufacturers and this one is the best!
Kindle 2nd generation does not come with light and this one fits perfect with my M-Edge jacket.
I purchased the item on sale and I'm extremely satisfied with it.
got this free with the order of the Leisure Jacket so the deal was doubly awesome!
Compact, adjustable and great illumination
I got this for free when I ordered a case for Kindle 4; its a great light (I had one previously), and the quality has maintained through different variations of the light.
I love the multiple brightness settings on this book light!
Much smaller than I anticipated, but compact and easily transportable.
I love this light. It will shut down after a certain amount of time. This is a nice feature because there are many times that I fall asleep reading. Without this feature, I will be changing the battery every couple of days. I also like the fact that it has 3 settings of how bright you want it to be.
There is a touch pad to turn it on and off. If not careful, the bulb will go on and waste the battery.
Great light, even better deal!
Great Light. Would have been nice if it came with a battery though.
Can't beat free gift but its not compatible with my case. When closed it sticks out past the edge but again can't beat free!
The light is great and goes so well with the cover!
Only use my book light when reading in bed at night.
It's not M-Edge's fault that this isn't the best light in the world. But, hey, it was free, so I'm not really complaining!
I have only had to use it once since I got it, but would not have actively sought it out for myself. But all in all, not bad for free.
Bought this for my girlfriends birthday, she loves it.
I am already using one of them
This has been very helpful to me since I have the Kindle Touch. Very eye-friendly. Thank!
Still getting used to where to place the light for maximum effect, but it's great that this was a free item and will come to good use. Thanks.
The light is not very bright and it did not fit inside my jacket.
I like that the light is small enough to "store" clipped to my Kindle. My only critique would be that the arm is not quite long enough to turn towards my screen. I do like that the light has different "brightness" settings.
Free is always good. Topped off the gift for my daughter.
I don't think I have figured out the proper postion for this--am working with it--It does provide a great light tho'--
Nice clear light use it at night, on planes and whenever I need a little direct light. Fits nice and snug along the side of the Kindle and fits the GO! Case well - only criticism is that the touch on/off is a little too sensitive and gets turned on accidently in my bag a lot.
I have two of these already. The light is perfect for my uses but the plastic points that adjust the light angle wear too quickly. The light won't stay were it is placed.
I tried this booklight but don't really use it. It seemed to do the job.
I love this light! It has three settings which can be adjusted by tapping upon the top of the light. It slides into into the Kindle cover and can be removed just as easily. The arm of the booklight provides flexibility so that you can direct the light without difficulty.
I purchased this light to fit into my Kindle cover as a replacement of one purchased almost 2 years ago. Our puppy ate it! This is an okay replacement but the original was better.
Slides right into my case, very bendable to place where I want it. Love the 3 different light settings. And I really like that it's a touch light.
Nice light with multiple levels. Wish it was designed to fit in the case or to have a better way to attach to this case it was designed to go with.
Nice design, does the job, slightly brighter and larger area of coverage would be nice... But no probs.
Pretty happy with the light, especially considering it was a free gift! Not sure how ling it will last without breaking though as the part that connects to the eReader case seems quite flimsy.
This light works great with the M-edge case and helps with reading in low light
The cover integration is the strongest feature of this light for me. It is attractive, and the graphite model matches my Holmes case. In a "perfect world" I might want the gooseneck 1/8th inch longer for a little more angle variation when positioning, but that is being pretty fussy.
Seems to work well with the reader. Like the multiple lighting levels available. It's had only limited use, but so far, so good.
Just right for the end of the day. Easy to apply and stays in place all of the time.
only reason no 5 stars is that my finger sometimes accidently turns it on
I liked the price, the size, the color and the way it fits into my Kindle. I would recommend it highly to anyone who may ask about it.
Loved the light, it is small yet very bright. The door to put the battery in was a little hard to open. The free light was great, but because I don't do much reading at night I gave it to my daughter.
I have purchased many booklights and this is my favorite. I love the three settings and its brightness.
Love the different brightness levels of the light.
This light fits so neatly into the jacket. I do get a little glare sometimes from the light but I love the touch and adjustable settings.
I really haven't used it enough yet..But it is very bright which is great!
Bright and even light that mates well with the 'Trip' case.
I was excited to get this booklight knowing that it would integrate with my GO! case. The light slides into the cover and sits very securely, so I don't have to worry about it sliding out or falling of in my bag. The light has adjustable brightness, all though I've never had to use the lowest setting. I can't say I love the auto-off function - as I tend to read for long periods and it's kind of annoying to have the light shut off automatically. I'm also not a fan of the super sensitive on button - the light seems to turn on "by itself" when it's in my bag or when I'm reading with the light folded down/off. The neck is nice and short but not entirely positionable - I find that the bend sometimes "unbends" itself. The light is the best addition to any M-Edge case in regards to function/storage/looks but I think it still could use some tweaking in terms of usability.
The light is good, nice and bright, I like that it flashes / turns itself off after an hour. I do find that it runs out of battery life fairly quickly though, and also it sticks out the side of my m-edge case a little too far - which I am disappointed in, I purchased this as the products are meant to be compatible, but it is not quite slim enough
It was a nice surprise to get a free gift good for reading at night
I like the three different settings and the flexible gooseneck. This light is much better than the one in the Kindle leather cover. I do wish it had some kind of cover for the light button, as it's too easy to accidentally switch on in a bag or while traveling.
It works so nicely when reading in bed. It has 3 brightness settings
Once I figured out the batteries it works great. I do wish that it could tuck completely inside the edge of the jacket so that I could throw it in my bag without worrying that I'll break it.
Slides perfectly into the side slot of the Jacket. Clicks into any position. Arm bends and stays put just like you would expect. 3 Modes of light...Dim, Brighter, Brightest (which is tons of light). Then, one more press and it slowly fades to off. Very nice product. Light will swivel parallel to the jacket when not in use and stays conveniently flush to the side. 1 double A battery which will power the LED for hundreds of hours.
I like how this light is integrated into the cover, but wish it didn't have the push-button "on" switch. It gets turned on too easily by accident and runs the battery down.
the light easily fit into the cover, so i don't have to hold it with an hand, the light is not too bright or too little bright, it's just right. plus, to turn it on you don't need to do any type of noise
I liked the previous version of this light (with the physical switch), and this is a great light, as well.
too bad it doesn't work with the silicone cases - but i do like it a lot - it's a good light.
light is very "touchy" to turn on and off, not very impressed with this item
I don't use this very often, whilst the light is bright enough to see the book I find it doesn't sit as well on the ereader cover as the picture shows. Won't complain too much though as I got it free :)
I am not sure I would have ordered this, but it came as a bonus with my case. Now I am delighted to have it and expect it to come in very handy.
Haven't really had a chance to use this very much yet, but as far as fitting well with the GO! case, it's great. Very handy!
The light is really bright and very useful. However, I have tried unsuccessfully to find a good postion for it when not in use. Basically the light itself does not lay flat on the top of the Kindle. Since it also sticks out a bit on the right side I tried inserting it on the left side of the Kindle --but you cannot close the case if you leave it on the left side, either. Storing it elsewhere is problematic (can easily be forgotten on a bedside table when traveling, etc) so I'm wondering if you have any suggestions as to the best way to position it when not in use?
This was a freebie, so thank you! I still couldn't grasp how to actually use it. I tried clipping it on the kindle cover but the cover was too thick. Probably works better if I clipped it on a book instead.
The summary pretty much says it all. This light is an awkward appendage which needs extra attention to make sure the goose neck doesn't get damaged or caught on something. It's difficult to adjust the light so that the hot spot is not obtrusive. Although it is a good thing that the light can easily be turned on and adjusted with a light touch, I have frequently looked into my purse and found the light on.
Nice little light that illuminates the screen of my Kindle Keyboard.
This light came free with my silicone skin, doesn't work with the skin on, would be better suited to work with a paper book as apposed to a digital book.
Nice light, works well, easy to adjust. My only concern is that I haven't found a good way to carry it (in a suitcase or laptop bag) while protecting the mounting clip.
Works very well. On high my husband was able to take a picture of me reading in the dark. Was a little difficult to fit in the cover but I was able to with a little maneuvering.
Works as expected. Flexible part is shorter then it used be ( probably due to smaller Kindle). Very positive is the usage of standard AAA battery.
I got the light free with my custom order, so not much I can say. I read a great deal, and the battery only lasted a week! Had I paid for the light I would be very unhappy!
I am unable to fold the light away within the jacket, but it is very convenient when it is attached.
This light is very useful to me, I read when I go to bed to relax. I am able to see the words on the whole screen. It is not a perfect solution because there is a spot of glare on the screen. It depends where you place the light.
was an unexpected surprise that it accomodated this cover for the Kindle and compliments the two together. It was nice that it was offered and FREE with the cover.
This light was included with the custom jacket - no complaints
very handy although it was difficult to open battery section to pop a battery in
Love the light works well only down side is that it sometimes will turn on in my purse.
I knew amazon would come out with front lit kindle as soon as I ordered mine, and sure enough they announced it about 2.5 weeks after purchasing mine. However, this light is great, a glare is not produced when using it, and it's bright enough to see what you are trying to read, without annoying anyone around you. I will definitely use it until an upgrade is purchased (in a few years).
It was free. Would I have purchased it otherwise?--probably not, only because it wouldn't have occurred to me. Battery compartment was a little hard to open, but I assume I won't have to do that too often.
Very bright....makes reading easier...very convenient...
Very sensitive to on/off touch- can accidentally be turned on. Gives just ok coverage when positioned in sleeve
I didn't think I'd need a light, but since this came free with the cover as a promotion, I thought why not? Turns out, I'm using the light--a lot--especially when it's hot at night and the bedside light bulb throws out too much heat. Glad I got it.
Perfect for my kindle
This light came free with my Custom Jacket, and I like it a lot. It fits solidly into the jacket in a way that does not leave me worrying it will fall out, and I like the 3 different light settings and easy to position arm.
Very please with this light. I like how small it is and how it's designed to fit with my cover.
The light works as advertised and fits the M-Edge Jacket for Kindle DX perfectly. Very pleased.
I use to read at bed but I don't want to disturb anyone in my family so the e-Luminator is perfect. I use it with Platform Case and I don't have any contra. I love the different light intensities at it's useful for all moments of the day.
The light is the perfect weight, but it lacks in brightness.
This light is awesome with its different settings of how bright the light can be. It fits great in the case.
This came free with the silicone cover, I haven't used it yet, I can tell you the light is nice and bright and easy to adjust.
Works well, however sometimes I have to touch it a few times before the light turns on. I appreciate the three different light intensities.
This is an excellent ereader light. It slips right into a side pocket of the cover and the light arm is on a ratchet that allows it to be placed in several different positions. The light itself is an LED that has a low, medium and high setting, all activated by touching the back of the light. It operates on one AAA battery. When not in use, the light can be lowered so it is parallel to the case. However, the case must be closed before lowering the light and the light raised before opening the case., which is a little awkward. However, it only takes a second to insert and remove the light, so I find this easier than leaving it attached.
This light is very bright! I have had difficulties finding a light bright enough to illuminate the entire page...this light has no problems with that at all. It slides perfectly into the M-Edge cover.
I purchased one of the first generation lights for my old Kindle. The light worked great and I like that it stayed with the case so it was always available. When I purchased a leather case for my new Kindle Touch I was pleased to see that they were including a light free of charge. The light fits snugly in the case, so it's always available. The light also now has 3 settings and a very easy to use touch control. It's a great light, I love it.
nice bright light. too easy to touch by mistake and turn on and off. but otherwise good.
The attachment to my Kindle was awkward, and the light at its highest setting didn't cover enough territory for my needs. That said, M-Edge accommodated the return swiftly and courteously ... couldn't have asked for more. All of my dealings with M-Edge, not just this encounter, have been top-drawer. I congratulate you again on your superb customer service, not the norm today's rough and tumble buying universe.
Bright light that works well with my Kindle keyboard.
Good, just not anything that I find a use for.
Sent for free with the custom kindle cover...thank!
It is OK, but I will probably have little use for it.
I have not really had to use this yet, but from what I have so far it seem very nice!
Thank you MEdge! This is a nice book light that works really well for my books, but not great for my kindle just because it tends to slide off the slick surface. But for books...it's great!
I received this as a freebie with my order, so was not expecting much. Then I took it out of the package and popped in a battery.... It has a heavier plastic then I expected. But the cool part is the no button light. Just touch your finger to it and the light comes on. And it has three degrees of brightness!!! Very Cool!
Have only recently received it and used it only a few times but it's features are very good and, over time, it may well prove to be a five star product. This is the second M-Edge product I've had and its predecessor was a good product.
Really pleased with this booklight. Different levels of brightness. Bendy so it can be angled just right. And it fits into the M-Edge cover. And the service level was great. I had it the day after it shipped.
Great Kindle light! I already have one from another company but on receiving this one I changed preferences pretty quickly. I found that the 3 levels of brightness really comes in hand.
It's a nice light with 3 levels of brightness. The only problem is that the light is touch activated instead of on a switch like previous versions, so occasionally I'll identically switch it on while I'm reading. Seriously M-Edge, why are you designing faults into products that already work?
having issue with turning light on and off and making it stay off
What more could you ask for a good book and a very good light real handy. I am so glad I found you.
We are glad you found us!
works great but pops off my cover sometimes... not a big deal
Really like this light. Like the new touch feature and 3 level light.
Got this light free with my order, couldn't be happier with it. Great for using my Nook on camping trips!
The light has low, medium and bright settings to give plenty of light with which to read, and it covers the entire page. The base swivels, the neck moves, and the unit is supposed to slide into the case's back pocket putting the lamp on the left side of the reader. Mine, however, appeared to be manufactured backwards for the Latitutde. No matter how I played with it, there was no way I could get full light coverage of the entire reading page (the torque of the lamp neck kept turning the lighted head away from where I wanted it, resulting in a page that was lit only on the top third). Then I realized that I could place the lamp on RIGHT side of the Kindle by inserting it between the reader and the case, and Eureka! it works perfectly.
After figuring out the booklight needed a battery this looks to be a great addtion to my Kindle 3 accessories
this light is free. free! What more do you need to say.
Love the light. Not only was it free with my order but it is light and bright.
I like that this light slides into and out of my Kindle cover easily. It provides good light and is unobtrusive.
Received this as a gift from M-edge. Works very well and has a strong light.
I have had other lights, but, this is the best. Really like it, as it is very flexible and fits into my cover and gives great light.
Doesn't seem to clip on that well but serves its purpose
My wife bought me this to go with my Kindle and cover from M-Edge. This light completed the set and has allowed to read clearly and even in dim light, which is very handy as I have a sight disability. Well made and very versatile light. Excellent add-on!
The booklight is very handy having it attached right to the cover. But I gave it one star less because it is easily turned on by mistake. It is a touch control and very easy to turn on. Obviously I am hitting it when I turn the page.
It's a good thing all in all, but I don't like the reflexion of light in kindle's screen.
Love this little light! It slides in perfectly with my MyEdge Kindle jacket and provides completely sufficient light for reading. The only issue I have is that sometimes I hit the on switch without realizing it. Otherwise it is a fantastic accessory and a must-have!
Love this little booklight - so perfect for reading at night while my husband is sleeping!
This is an easy and well designed light. It works well with my Kindle Touch.
Fine, but you have to be able to attach it to something.
The light from M-edge has worked wonderfully as I can read late into the night on my Kindle without disturbing anyone else.
Does it's job, but the light does flicker sometimes -- could be due to the light or battery though -- which is quite annoying. It is a little too big as well and poorly placed with the MyEdge Custom Jacket (Dogwood Tree in Bloom) I bought, so I constantly have to adjust the placement. But hey, it was free and creates enough light (and has adjustable brightness) to read in the dark.
This light can get VERY bright. I wish there were one setting lower than the lowest.
but it came with the cover for free, but it I saw it in the store I would not have looked twice at it. the light does what is is meant to do and does it well, it just seems fragile and looks like it would break easily.
it is nice to have a light but the whiteness of the light makes it not as soft on the eyes to read.
I love this light. I really like the touch feature and how there are 2 dim settings and 1 bright one. I use a rechargeable AAA battery for it. So far, so good.
Love the light, really like the option for three brightness levels.
I probably won't use this a whole lot (how often do I read a regular book by flashlight?), but there will definitely be times when the extra illumination is handy!! Light-weight, attaches easily.
I don't use this book light as much as others might, though it works very well. I just prefer to read sitting upright with a floor lamp.
I've tested this but haven't had to use it yet
Great product, but not sure about the touch on/off switch. It is too easy to turn on and leave it on. Already had one battery burn out without seeing that the light had been on. Otherwise it is a fantastic product!
Although I rarely use a book light, this one is perfect for fitting into an M-edge case and storing away when not needed.
The light slips neatly into a pocket of my newly acquired New Yorker case and with a little fiddling about illuminates the whole screen with no glare. I love it.
It's possible to adjust this light so well, you don't get the brightness of the globe dazzling part of the page. I only gave it four stars because it was so difficult to open the battery cover I was scared I would break it.
It eats batteries. It would be nice if it used a larger battery or, better yet, two batteries, preferably AAs, or ?. The light itself is perfect for my Kindle Touch.
Light stick out past Platform case for Sony PRS-300. Very disappointing. Glad it was free.
Perfect light! Love how it can be angled differently And different light settings! Love it!
I love the touch on/off button and the auto-off feature. I don't enjoy the clip as uch as I did a previous bag clip type model but it works fine...just prefer the other model clip.
Does not fit well inside the jacket for the Kindle. I feel that it will break off easily.
Got this for free, although that was just an added bonus because I would have bought it anyway! Love how flexible and adjustable it is, as well as the fact that there are three settings regarding the brightness of the light.
Great product, although sometimes the light turns on in my purse when i am carrying my kindle to work. But it lights up the screen nicely and fits into the case well.
This is the best book light on the market. The adjustable arm and 3 different brightness in the light is fantastic.
What a great light. Probably wouldn't be able to find anything better for the price.
love the fact that it is shuts off after 1 hour
Nice light but a little difficult to turn on.
I just this product at night so as not to bother anyone in the room
Nice to be able to read in bed & not bother Your partner.
Fits nice in the M Edge covers (I ve got two different ones). Reading is so much better with this additional light source.
Nice, a little hard to turn off at times.
This is a very strong light but the on/off switch is so sensitive that it makes packing it to travel a poor design. The touch switch is very easily triggered which means that the battery is dead by the time you pull it out of wherever you have packed it. Cannot count the number of times I have pulled it out of my carryon bag or out of my purse to find it already on or nearly dead because it was on. Loved the Original M-Edge2 light.
This booklight works very well, but you have to watch for accidently turning it on, the touch application is very sensitive. It is very light weight, which I appreciate, and easy to adjust to many comfortable positions for reading With No Glare from the lamp. This is a definite big plus for me. The battery is not replaceable, but supposedly is good for 10,000 hours. At my reading rate, it should last about five and a half years with five hours of reading every day of each year. I'll be keeping track! lol A definitely wonderful booklight.
Please note that the battery is replaceable and will need to be replaced. It takes 1 AAA battery which will provide up to 40 hours of light on the dimmest setting and up to 10 hours on the brightest. Please contact us if you need assistance. - Jackie, Team M-Edge
a small light which works good with the Kindle 4
The biggest challenge with this light was getting to the battery compartment. I had to ask my husband for help. Anybody with arthritis in their hands would hate it. My only other concern is how easily it may turn on or off since it is touch activated. It might accidentally get turned on and then wear the battery down. Haven't owned it long enough to know, but have owned others in the past with similar activation that have done just that.
Fits great in all cases and the light isnt obnoxious.
Very convenient, although the rotating mechanism and the cover to the battery compartment are somewhat flimsy.
I loved all three of the cases I bought. Great quality and about half the price of other places. This book light came free with my order. It works very well, better than one I bought at Walmart. It uses a AAA battery and I've replaced it once in a month of heavy reading!
Makes reading in unfavourable light conditions easier as the light illuminates the " page" brightly even in the lowest settings. The only drawback is it is a bit bulky on the edge of a cover when storing between use.
It was free, so I shouldn't complain. Light leaves a bit of a shadow when I'm reading at night, but it still does a good job.
Love the e-Luminator Touch! I have tried numerous book lights and this one is the best by far. Not only is it conveniently attached to my M-Edge cover, the different levels of light intensity is very helpful, plus even on the lowest light level, the light covers the entire screen area. I also really like how it folds back out of the way when not needed. It is also so light that it doesn't add any noticeable weight to the Kindle plus cover. I highly recommend this book light!
It does what it's supposed to do and lights up the reader so that I can read with ease. It would be great if the eLuminator light could fit and operate within the case rather than being in its holder on the outside of the case. I would much rather be able to close the light inside with the reader when not in use.
This is the best reading light available for the Kindle. I tried several other brands before buying this product.
Works well with the M-Edge case I purchased. The light throws a little glare onto the screen but positioning the light makes it better.
Nice light, but do no like the push button. Too easy to turn on when carrying in my bag and it bumps other things. The slide switch on my old one is better.
I like this booklight, but I wish it would fit in my cover better.
good lighting. don't like that it hangs off the ereader instead of being inside.
Essential. This was the ultimate bonus and so like M-Edge to offer it. Well done!
Very happy with this purchase and will certainly recommend it to my friends.
I was pleased with my purchase but found the light annoying when attached to the cover. I only attach it to the kindle and cover when light is low for reading. M Graber
Super thank you - it was lovely to receive it free.
Great light. Has three intensity settings at the touch of your finger without pressing down on buttons. The only disappointment was that it would not fit the custom Kindle cover. There is no sleeve in the custom cover for it to fit into. But I lucked out because she gave it to me and it fits my M-Edge cover perfectly.
this is the second one I have ordered. The first for myself and the second as a gift for my mother-in-law. My husband really likes it, as when I find myself wide awake in the middle of the night, I don't disturb him with too much light. It is perfect.
Not quite as illuminating as I would have thought, but serves the purpose.
Great light has 3 levels of light and lights up the hole page
This is the 3d oneo f these lights I have bought. ( I husband and I have had two Kindle3 s,and the Nook Touch) It works great. Better than the built in lighting. I highly recommend it.
I like this better than the one I originally purchased when I got my Kindle. It's lightweight and puts out a great deal of light!
I received this light free with a promotion and I am very pleased with it. I have not had any issues with "accidentally" leaving the light on. The only issue I did have was removing the housing for the battery. I had to wedge it open with tweezers ~ other than that it is great.
nice 3 level lighting, just a bit of glare on the screen, but easy to use
My husband and I had been talking about getting lights for our Kindles and we couldn't decide on which one to get. This light is spectacular with 3 brightness settings we can adjust it to any situation that we are reading in.
the light that's what it is supposed to do. it is not bulky and because it fit so nicely in it's sleeve it will not be lost easily. the best thing about the light is that it was free! thank you!!!
I received this light complimentary with my Custom Kindle Touch Jacket. I initially thought that I would not use the light and considered giving it away, but then I realized how compatible with the jacket it was. Since I got it, I haven't gone a night without it. It's extremely flexible and adjustable and makes for a great reading experience.
Received this lil' light free with the cover i purchased and have loved it.... love the touch feature and it works great for reading my nook in the dark. :)
Great light once I figured out that you didn't need to push the button at the top, rather gently touch it. Once I got that, I have had no problems.
doesn't really fit well with the Kindle case - could be more flexible to position best for reading - otherwise, it is satisfactory
This light received 4 stars instead of five because I found that the light was a bit longer than my vertical cover even though the light was designed for that cover and others similar. The cover has been designed to protect this specific light from damage. I was concerned with breakage. I also found that the goose neck was a bit difficult to position; however, it held position once set. I'm certain that using it will become easier as my experience progresses.
Despite the obvious issue of the battery size, which I guess is almost insurmountable, the item is PERFECT. Surprising 3 intensity levels of light and softness of the "powering-off" process.
size is perfect as is the amount of light.
It lights the Kindle very well, and I like the flexibility of the neck of the light.
Does what it says... 3 different light intensities, only turns on with your touch, clips nicely onto the cover.
Works great and used a AAA battery, so it's easy to change. Very flexible arm and stays in place with the M-Edge cover.
I think this light does a great job illuminating the kindle for night reading but when it is folded down it doesn't really fit in the case (MyEdge Custom Jacket for Kindle 4). This kind of ruins the look for me and the light gets accidentally turned on if it get bumped while in my bag so I don't use it very much.
We got the e-Luminator with the case we bought for free. And that is really awesome. But if it wasn't free, I would have put 3 stars only. The light feels delicate and I'm always worried it'll just snap in two in one of a few possible places. Also, it hasn't got great integration with the Kindle/Case. I would have expected it to be more of a clip that connected to the Kindle itself, and could hide neatly away when the case was closed. But hey, it was free, and it is definately great to have. It does it's job well, and the light itself is bright. There are multiply levels of brightness you can select, which is very useful.
Nice product, and very handly. Only concern is that i haven't learned how to toally handle it and I keep turning on the light accidentally.
I am delighted with both my cover and light. Every day i look at them i think why didn't i get one sooner.
I'm so thrilled to have this light! I can now read at night without disturbing my Husband. And I'm very pleased with how well I can see to read, even at the lowest setting (conserves battery)! Thanks M-Edge for a great reading light!
I got this light for free when I ordered the Kindle cover. I light the light weight design and the fit into the cover. Only problem is the switch seems very sensative and the battery was dead when I went to use the light again. (will just have to be very careful!) But a good deal since it came with the case and was an unexpected bonus.
I ordered this item and had to have a replacement sent out. The first one flickered and the light kept dimming on it's own. I called Customer service and they were awesome! They sent a new one out immediately and it works great! It's perfect for my Kindle M-Edge cover, the light is as bright as I want it and it turns itself off after an hour! I love this little light, I bought one for my granddaughter and she doesn't go anywhere without it!
it's a great light but too sensitive. it turns on frequently with the slightest 'accidental' touch which runs the battery down, esp if you dont notice the light is on. Would like to see a master switch other than that, it's a good functional light.
Maybe it's just me but if this light had two bulbs it would be perfect. Even on its brightest setting, one bulb sometimes doesn't provide as much light as I'd like. The M-edge system is super convenient and cost-effective in that I don't have to buy a new light when I change covers or devices. The need for only one battery is a huge plus too.
i got this free along with my custom case for my kindle touch. the good news: the product works great and clearly illuminates my device when i have to read in the dark. the bad news: the light slides into the side of my case that opens up. this means that the light sticks out of the case - making the whole thing difficult to put in my pocket. what would be helpful is having an image that shows exactly where the light goes in all of the different cases the m-edge sells.
I bought this light with my cover that is made with the light in mind and it's amazing. I thought I would need to use the high setting for adequate light but I was proven wrong. All I need is the low light setting because of how bright medium and high can get. Low is enough and I'm glad because that can save battery life. Another thing is the battery, it takes 1 AAA battery which is amazing! I'm glad it doesn't take those small circle ones which can get expensive. Best book light out there.
I bought this light & case after trying my sisters kindle keyboard with the same brand light & case. It is a great light & case my only complaint is the light is longer then the case. A different shorter version should be made for the smaller kindles.
i can't believe how bright this light is. I love this light!!!!
I recently ordered a new cover for my Kindle and this light was offered for FREE when I ordered my cover. I love this light and I will never use any other light than this!! Not only does it provide excellent coverage for my Kindle screen but it's so very easy to use, it's a touch-light! I wasn't aware when I ordered it that it was a touch light so that was a very nice surprise. I was so excited about the great deal of getting it for FREE that I didn't really pay attention to the product page. Lol It's so easy to turn on and if I need it a little brighter all I have to do is give it a slight tap. It also will shut off automatically after 1 hour to save on the battery life. I do appreciate that feature as there has been several occasions where I fell asleep reading and if the light had stayed on I would have woken up to a dead battery! The battery life also seems to be quite good. I use this light every night so it definitely gets quite the workout. I wish I could rate it higher than the 5 stars because I feel it deserves a 10 star rating!! Thanks M-Edge for such a great product!!
The light is a great little light. I like that it has three different settings and the way that it fits in my M-Edge covers.
Things I love about the eluminator light 1. Is very lightweight, doesn't add weight to Kindle 2. The light is sufficiently bright for being powered by 1 AAA battery 3. The light is really WHITE. I have another brand ereader light, which is brighter than the eluminator but has a yelowish tinge, making the Kindle screen appear a bit dull. Nothing of that sort with the eluminator though, if anything, it makes the screen contrast appear better on Kindle! Things I would like to have been better 1. The flexible head of the light can be a bit tighter - when I set it to a position I like, it has a tendency to straighten itself out and I need to readjust after a couple of minutes of reading. 2. The battery compartment is a PAIN to open. I am sure one of these days I am going to break the light when trying to replace the battery.
I've tried a number of different reading lights, and just couldn't find one that worked worth a darn. Until I got this one! My electricity was out this past weekend, and it sure came in handy. I used it for over 2 hours and it provided the perfect light, and it didn't hurt my eyes at all. It adjusts so easily - perfectly flexible. I highly recommend this light.
Received this free with a recent purchase. It's a great light! I like the fact that the brightness can be adjusted, can be positioned to be glare-free, and uses easily found aaa batteries. I was also pleased with the quick delivery of this product.
This light is good in every respect except when I flex the neck. It tends to be stiff and jerks back just enough to put the illumination in the wrong position. It always needs to be adjusted. I have an earlier version that does not have the problem.
This book light is wonderful. The three brightness settings are very helpful and most importantly to me, the wire stays put once set up. The only negative comment I have: It would be nice if there was a master on/off switch. I often inadvertently switch it on while reading with a kindle
Love the light for my kindle as I do alot of reading in bed and I don't need any other light. Also have used it in the car (as a passenger) and also on the airplane. Thanks for coming up with a great addition to my kindle.
I love this light. I ordered a custom cover from MEdge and thought I might as well add the light, and I am very glad that I did. The three light levels are really clever and it's easy to move around to get the light just where you need it. It's also well-designed to slide right into the kindle cover, but can also be used on a standard ol' paper book (remember those?). I have been very happy with this product.
I gave my husband (and myself) a Kindle with beautiful M-Edge leather cases for Christmas two years ago. I loaded it up with books I thought he'd like and he never used it. Last month I bought us each the Touch Booklight and it has made all the difference. He's reading books back to back on the Kindle now that he has the light. If he could just keep his big fat fingers from hitting the page button too soon . . . .
My daughters gave me my Kindle Touch with the M-Edge case for my birthday. The case had advertisement that suggested the M-Edge e-Luminator Touch Booklight. It was money well spent! I have found that I can read my Kindle books no matter where I am - including in bed. The e-Luminator is just enough light to make it easy to read anywhere but not enough light to disturb other peopel - even on a plane. And the movable neck allows any angle necessary for the right amount of light on the Kindle. Best of all, it stores down the edge of the cover nicely when not in use. My only complaint is the touch switch to turn it on is extremely sensitive and I am always turning it on when I don't mean to. But that is a small irritation in comparison with it's usefulness!
I bought this for my sweetheart and she loves it. Plenty of light for her to read her kindle in bed, but not bright enough peripherally to keep me awake. Works EXACTLY as expected.
I ordered this at a discount when I purchased my cover. It fits along the outer edge of my Kindle and sometimes is turned on by accident - that is why I didn't give it 5 stars. Other than that it works quite well. I never realized how much I needed more light when reading.
I like to read before going to sleep and this light is very easy to use. It fits snuggly in the m-edge jacket and is very bright. Also the flexability is fantastic as I can position it anywhere for best coverage of the page. it has severaly levels of brightness so you can dim it down if you do not want quite as much light. Hard to open and close but I know the battery won't fall out.
Really like the the light. May need another for MY Kindle, got this one for my wife.
I love my new light. It fits the case perfectly. I love the different intensities of the light I can adjust with just a tap or light squeeze. Only regret is that I didn't get one when I very first got my Kindle & case!
Purchased this light to go with an Executive case purchased for my Sony PRS T1. Loved it returned purchased one for another ereader I have - PRS600. And bought a third one as a gift for a friend. Like how small and compact the light is and the 3 settings this it comes with. By the way this light very efficient it only uses one triple-AAA battery that lasts - unlike others that I purchased in the past that uses up to 3 batteries - used so much energy and didn't last.
I would definitely recommend this book light for the Kindle touch. It fits perfectly, stays in place, has a flexible stem for the light and provides good light.
Once you figure out the switch mechanism with the 3 positions and off, the light is most useful, I found my Lenovo A! reader puts out sufficient illumination for even the darkest location...however it is useful for the red-eye flights for a Sony E-Reader or a print magazine or book. The light output at the dim position gives the best battery life and is sufficient for me. Battery life is more than adequate-one should remove the battery when not in use, as in any appliance.
I am very happy with my purchase. I love the fact that it has 3 light intensities and that it lights up the whole page of my kindle and how it attaches to it. I would recommend this product.
I had the previous version of this light, and I loved it. I bought a new one becasue the coil was twisted a bunch at the bottom, and the switch started getting lose so sometimes it would take a while for me to jiggle it before the light would stay on. I had that 1 a year and a half. That said, this light works great. The downside is that I find myself changing batteries much more often with this one than I ever had to change with the old version. Which is really odd because with this new version, it has a timer to shut off after so long. I cant tell you how many times I fell asleep reading with the old light and it stayed on all night long. I also worry that this one day I will go to flip up the light to read and it will break off at the base. Doesnt seem as strong at the base as the old version.
This is my second M-Edge light for my Kindle, and it was worth the upgrade. My old light was good, but this one is brighter, and has a nice design. Best light for my needs.
I love this light! I have tried several different lights before finding this one. It adjusts just right, without creating a glare on my screen.
I've seen all different sorts of book lights, and tried several of them, but this is the one! I love the self timer since I tend to fall asleep reading. The different intensities of brightness are great. I bought this along with my M-Edge Latitude Jacket for my Kindle Touch.The light slides neatly into a pocket on the back, so there's no clipping or clamping onto my Kindle. Highly recommend!!
Great light for using with my kindle, specally the diffrent intensities are great.
I've had my light for about a month. It fits snugly into my kindle jacket, and when not in use, it rides close along the side of my kindle. Provides plenty of light for reading.
I love the light! What you said it would do it does.
The light does exactly what I expected it to do. Well designed product.
I love it!! I think the price is too high!!
I have ordered two of these lights so far. I gave the first to my mom because her other one (a different brand) completely stopped working. These little lights are great though. They have 3 different brightness settings, and it stays in the position you put it in. It's very light as well, so you dont feel a lot of added weight. However, I dont really like the sleep timer. Thats my only gripe with this product.
For what it is, it serves its purpose! The lighting is good. With the flexible neck, you can practically get rid of any glare on the screen, or "hot spots" as some people call them. The 3 ranges in brightness works well, too. The 2nd is my favorite. :) Enjoy!
The light I bought is very nice. One thing that is not well is that it's very difficult to instert the light in the cover.
I'm sorry you've had trouble inserting the light in the cover! Please contact our customer service team with any questions at email@example.com. Thank you! -Aubrey, Team M-Edge
This light is compact and fits neatly into the jacket cover when closed. When adjusted correctly there is no glare from the screen and the different light settings are very useful different situations. The delivery service was great and I would have no hesitation recommending this company to others.
This is really a great light for e-readers. Because it can be moved easily in any direction, you can avoid the glare problems, then it folds neatly out of the way when not in use. Also it is extremely light weight.
Bought this for my oldest daughter. Now her sister will not be kept up late at night while she reads her Kindle!
I purchased my kindle in 2009 & I purchased a light from M-Edge at the same time. I have never had any problems with the light, it has two light settings, med & high, and stays right inside my Kindle case so there is no chance of losing it. You don't have to clip it on and try to make it stay in place. I recently purchased a Kindle for a relative and I wanted the same light and I was able to order directly from the M-Edge Co., the light has changed slightly in design, but is the same great product. I highly recommend this light & this company. Great service & fast shipping.
Love that I was able to get a quality jacket for my kindel that is unique to me. Have recommended your web sight to my family and friends.
I was given a different brand's clip on light for Christmas, but wanted this one instead because it fits into my Kindle M-Edge cover. It's always with me and I don't have to go rooting around my handbag to find my light. I am well please with the light! The LED is bright and easily maneuvered to reduce glare. The three light levels are great because sometimes you don't need the brightest amount of light, often a little bit is all you need. The only suggestion I have is to figure out a way to store an extra battery within the cover. I think a stretchy elastic band sewn into the "spine" of the cover would work, similar to a pencil holder. It would not interfere with the light and we'd have an extra battery at all times.
I do like this light, good illumination of page. on and off switch a bit touchy but you adjust to it quickly. have only used few times but I think will be worth the money to me
Nice and sleek design. I have the kindle touch(anti-glare) and the light eliminates in one spot so I have to keep moving the head as I read. I wish it just projected a light over the page in a larger scale.
The light is great for my Kindle. One improvement I would like to see is for the light to swivel at the bulb compartment on the steel neck. It would help position the illumination even more.
I had the pevious model of this little light which finally gave up the ghost after several years of hard use. I like the newer version even more than the older one because the light has a nifty touch control for 3 levels of light. It fits in the edge book cover very well and for the money it is a wonderful litlle accessory for the Kindle.
The light is almost perfect. It is easy to use, easy to install. The light is a little bit too long for our M-Edge kindle case. The battery life is good. The light is bright and adjustable. The ordering and shipping process was easy. Thanks.
I bought this light on the recommendation of my son and have found it to be very helpful when reading in places like Starbucks where there is a somewhat dimmer lighting
When I ordered it I expected a cheap booklight or a Brookstone knock-off. Instead it was very well built, neat touch on/off feature. PLUS it was made for my book cover pretty awesome.
all the other reviews are accurate!!! 5 stars all the way - will certainly recommend to family and friends - make a great gift too!!!
This little booklight is just what I needed, and it fits right into the Kindle 3 jacket, ready whenever I want to read in the dark. I've been known to misplace my previous booklight, but this one is always right there with my Kindle. Love it.
I really love my new e luninator. The gooseneck bends however I need and the 3 light settings are wonderful for different situations. I would like to suggest making the light just a little longer in order to fit my kindle case better and not interfere with the strap closure on the case.
I am thoroughly enjoying my e luminator. The three settings make for ideal reading in any situation. Shipping was quick and was exactly what I expected. Thank you!
My order was received promptly and I have been completely satisfied with both products. They are well-made and enhance use of the Kindle. It is easy to replace batteries in the light and the light covers the entire Kindle window. I especially like the three levels of brightness. The light flashes if the Kindle is motionless and turns itself off if I fall asleep reading. Excellent feature!
After lots (and lots) of deliberation and careful research, I decided to go with the e-Luminator Touch Booklight for my Kindle. I couldn't be happier. It's a match made in heaven. With three brightness settings and a super adjustable swivel arm, it's simple to get it up and running with no hot spots or glare. Add in that it only needs a single battery and it's an amazing deal. Thank you M-Edge! I'll be buying one for a friend soon, if she gets her Kindle!
This light is excellent. Bright, easy to use, and the touch input is cool. Only two concerns. One, the touch interface is super sensitive. It doesn't require an intentional touch to turn it on...the brush of the back of a hand can accidentally trigger it as well. This isn't a huge problem, just an observation. The second is that the attachment method won't work for all situations. It's designed to be a companion light for e-readers, and for that it works great. It's also no problem for most books where you can use the "typical" bookmark to slide between pages. But there's no clipping mechanism, which makes it a bit harder to attach and stay in place on some books. Again, not a huge deal unless you have a particular type of situation. Overall, though, highly recommended.
Ideal booklight. Choices of intensity at the touch of a finger, workmanship is top-notch. fits perfectly alongside our exec jacket as advertised.
no on/off switch so even if it is just touched by accident it goes on. the slit on the mcover for the lite is on the side so very uncomfortable to hold reader with light on
I'm sorry the light did not meet your needs! Please feel free to contact our customer service team for return instructions. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Great reading light. Love the 3 intensity levels, just wish the light was warmer. Light is very "blue" and cold.
This is a great product. I have been very pleased with this purchase. It is easy to use and I love the touch and three levels of light.
Great light, but it really goes through those AAAs! Can't complain too much because you only use one at a time.
I bought this for the platform jacket for my Nook and it has worked exactly as shown. It still has a bit of the annoying 'spotlight' problem i've gotten with other booklights but this one at least is adjustable enough that, once it's near the top of my nook, the light disperses enough that it's barely noticable and the reading experience is quite enjoyable. Good work!
I have an older version of this light which I loved, but I like this one better. The touch on/off/dimmer feature is nice and the smaller profile make the light not as cumbersome. The light also seems to hit the screen more completely. My only down side is it seems to be a little more fragile the older models but that is only my opinion and i hope it proves to be wrong....
This is a nice light, but I agree that it is a little too long for the Kindle Touch. It sticks out of the cover, exposed. I do like the 3 settings of brightness on the light.
Overall a good product, but on the Kindle 4 jacket, it extends beyond the cover (it is too long, not too wide), so it is not protected. A slight change in the design could correct this. Love the upgrade from of a touch (old can be hard to shut off as off is in the middle)
Bought a new one to replace the old one I had - it had lost the battery cover anyway, so when it disappeared along with the Kindle and Platform Jacket, I had to replace it. The new one is absolutely wonderful. The "touch" control is infinitely better than the old slider, which was becoming intermittent. And the 3 levels of light are really useful as well. Really love this light!
I"m using my Kindle in an M-Edge jacket & this light is just perfect for it. I appreciate the 3 intensity levels and the positioning flexibilty. No fuss while using it: great concept. Well done, thanks.
Love this trusty little companion. I can use to give light to read in my bed before going to sleep. Love the fact that I can keep my light attached too. Great products and not to mention customer service! Thanks.
This is an amazing little light. Fits right into your medge cover. I love the touch on and off switch. It is great
I have an older version of this light but I really like it. It's nice to have a couple different levels of brightness. I love how it fits into the M-Edge case that I use. I also like that it's really light weight so it doesn't add a lot of bulk to my Kindle.
I got two of these with two m edge covers after my original lighted kindle cover cracked my kindle. I was so upset I threw away the replacement cover that amazon sent. Now so much happier. The light works really well and fits into the executive and go jackets perfectly. It lights the whole page unlike the kindle one and I only need the middle setting. Just brilliant.
I've had both this and the older version lights for Executive covers. They fit perfectly and work great for my purposes. I will say that the battery cover on the newer version is quite hard to get off in the beginning. It's getting easier with more battery changes. I really like having the light integrated with my cover. It's much better than carrying a separate light.
The light fits perfectly in the Kobo cover. I too have a problem with removing the battery cover it is hard to do. Like the three settings. The only problem I have is after reading for about an hour the light starts to flicker on and off. This has happened several times. Other than that I enjoy useing the light.
Light is great idea but it easily gets turned and awkward to shut off. Don't love design, but best avaiable for price
Since I read in bed quite a bit, my wife particularly appreciates the variable intensity feature. LED is a much softer light than others I have tried. Takes a bit of positioning with my Kindle, but works well with no much shadowing. I particularly like the fit to the m-Edge cover for my Kindle, and also like the auto off feature. Overall, a solid product that performs as advertised.
I am very happy with with this little addition to my Kindle! I especially like the 3 different light settings with the tap of a finger! I also like the the flexible positioning of the light. I was very happy with the service at M-Edge and would definitely buy from them again.
The light works perfect, 3 brightnesses and long battery life. I haven't changed the battery yet. It's been 6 weeks. The graphite model matches my Kindle!
Good product that fits with the latitude jacket for the traditional nook. I have purchased 3 of these (for both my kids and my mom) with no issues.
Received all items as promised, when scheduled and am enjoying quality reading without disturbing my wife's sleep. PEACE! A truly great experience.
I am very pleased with this light. The touch on-off and three different light levels is perfect for a variety of conditions. It slides in the case I bought perfectly and works well with books too. Love it!
I love the convience of the light! The only down fall in the product to me is... I care my kindle around in my purse and when I reachbin to get my wallet or keys it's very easy to turn the light on by accident. Then I waste my battery and when I want to use the light the battery is dead. I guess I'll just have to pay more attention.
I bought the beautiful blue croc embossed cover. Also got the led light. Both work as advertised and look fantastic.
I thoroughly enjoy my light. The three levels are great although I usually use the middle level. It's easy to adjust and easy to operate. I highly recommend it.
I love this light. Its very easy to use, and I love being able to read without disturbing my husband, and it came in handy recently on a road trip we just took. I love how you can adjust the lighting with a gentle touch, and being able to angle the neck anyway you want it. Its great!
I bought the Executive cover and light for my Sony PR600 as did Cori above. The light does sometime tend to get in the way of the jacket, but overall I am well pleased with my purchase. I like how the light bends however I want it and stays there. The customer service and shipping methods/speed were exemplary and I would definitely buy from M-Edge in the future.
I had a hard time finding the right cover for my Kindle until I found the M-Edge website. When I got there I found everything I needed and what's more, it was ON SALE! I needed the cover asap, so I chose FedEx overnight shipping. As I was leaving the website I saw a product I preferred over the one I ordered. I phoned Customer Service, but it was closed so I left a message. The next morning I called as soon as the office opened and spoke with someone who had already retrieved my message and personally stopped my package from being sent. She helped me correct my order. The next day I had the cover I wanted in my hands. The quality is terrific, and the additional light worked just as described. I was extremely happy with everything about this purchase and will shop here again-WITH CONFIDENCE.
Loved this light. So neat and compact, and fits into my kindle cover perfectly. Loved the three levels of light and the automatic shut off is great if I fall asleep while reading.
after encountering problems with the old style eluminator (it had a short) they gladly refunded my money and i purchased this new style. altho it's color co-ordinated with my Kindle, and it has the timer and different settings, the neck of the light is too short and it causes more glare on the screen. other than that it's fine.
This light is great...you can control the strength of the light, bend it to whatever angle is best for you, and fits perfectly into my kindle cover.
This light is really great, especially when you use it in conjunction with the Kindle cover. I sit at soccer practice a few nights a week and in the winter, it gets dark before practice ends. While the field is lit, my car is not, so this light comes in real handy. Also great for when the power goes out--don't have to read by candle light or strap a light to my head. Can't say enough great things...
I love the new changes in this little light. It is perfect with my Kindle3. You did an awesome job with this one!. Thanks
This a great little light for the Kindle.
Love it, It really comes in handy. I really like the three levels of light!!
Fits the Capital jacket perfectly - other one was too long. Battery life doesn't appear to be quite as good, though, and the on-and-off blinking is annoying, though the auto-off feature is nice. Overall, I would recommend it. However, if you're going to use a Leisure or Latitude jacket, suggest you go with the original, as it has a longer neck, necessary with the jackets where the light slides in on the outside of the jacket.
I have struggled with trying to find a book light that would work with my Kindle. I never found one before the e-luminator that would fit properly. The e-luminator fits perfectly and I like the 3 levels of intensity. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I actually like the "easy-touch" functionality of the light adjustment feature. I also like the fact that the light folds neatly into the case, although the cover I own for my 2nd generation Kindle doesn't have any pocket that I can find to slide the support arm into. But it slides easily into the space between the back cover and the back of the Kindle itself so it works well.
The e-Luminator Touch is a step backwards compared to the e-Luminator2. Using it with a Latitude cover on a Nook v1, the light is harder to adjust to illuminate the reading area. The pivot point was moved from the center of the battery compartment closer to the end of the compartment so there is a shorter length of flexible neck, which makes adjusting where the light shines on the page more difficult. The flexible neck is still too springy and should be designed to be more malleable. The battery compartment now has a slip on cover which is difficult to slide open, the screw on cap on the previous version is much easier to use. The paper-clip arm feels much less sturdy than the solid one on the old light, although the paper-clip design may make it easier to use with paper books. As pointed out by another user, the low setting on the light isn't sufficient to light up the page of an e-book, especially since the flexible neck is less maneuverable. I will probably try to find a store that still has the e-Luminator2 for my wife's Nook STR.
This is amazing. I have tried two other lights. I am constantly adjusting them just to be able to read the whole page. This is smaller and I can read the page/screen and never have to move it. The other lights do not fit into the jacket either. So this is the perfect accessory.
Honestly - I only have one gripe about the light. I bought it to fit in an executive jacket cover for a Sony PRS-600 and when it arrived and I slipped it into the pocket on the cover - the head of the light sticks out below the jacket when the cover is closed. It's mainly an aesthetic gripe and one I will live with, but buyer beware when adding it to the shopping cart. It is very much made for a longer device like a kindle or Nook. Otherwise - the light is FANTASTIC! I love the concept and how the cover is tailored especially for the clip. The three settings are awesome and I see myself getting a ton of use out of it!
After struggling with a few clunky and awkward reading lights, I thought I was doomed. I saw this new light and had to give it a try. Love it! The three settings are a great option, although I never have to go above medium. The light is super compact and takes up very little room in my bag/Kindle case, which was a big complaint from the others I tried. The style is also very sleek and is far superior than the "block on a stick" style of the previous light I was using. I never tried the earlier version by M-Edge as mentioned by Lynn above, but I have to believe this is an improvement. Thanks M-Edge!
I have the previous e-lumitator and have found it great! 3 levels of light is even better. Clip for paperbacks is a great idea. For over a year I have operated my e-lumitor on my 2nd gen kindle by velcro attached to the light and the back of the kindle. I can still tuck it into the slide in pockets of my M-edge cases, but when I am home, I can just hold the kindle. I bought the kindle for how light it is, who wants to add a case and heavy light? One AAA battery is great.
My first E-Luminator was terrific, but eventually wore out. Unfortunately, I have to agree with Chris W. on this one. Light is poor, one battery lasts only a few hours, and battery case is totally user unfriendly.
I'm so sorry you're not happy with the light, but thank you for giving it a try. We would be happy to assist you with a return. -Aubrey, Team M-Edge
Feels kind of cheap, but it was free so..
llevo una semana probando esta luz y el resultado no puede ser mejor, si la posición 1 se queda corta con la 2 es más que suficiente para leer en cualquier ambiente. Además si tienes la suerte de tener una funda compatible la sensación de lectura es maravillosa el lado malo de la compra es la actitud inconsciente de del equipo de medgestore, pese a marcar la casilla de regalo no tuvieron la deferencia de mandarlo como tal. Lo pararon en aduanas y me mandaron un recadito

This is a great light - i like that it goes out after an hour's use unless you tell it not to... i read at night, in bed, & often fall asleep over my Kindle, so this is a good feature for me! i also like how it fits so neatly into my M-Edge New Yorker cover - that way, i always have the light w/me!
Best light for Kindle AND can be used (using the clip) on other books and magazines. Using this light with the mEdge covers is a superior way to go! My friends and sister are envious and convinced.
This light is just perfect! I like the fact that it has three different settings. I have the Latitude Jacket and this fits just right.
I ordered this light when I bought my custom Kindle cover. It's a great little light. The adjustability makes it great since I tend to use it most when laying in bed reading. It lives on my nightstand while my Kindle goes everywhere with me. I'll even use the bright setting as a flashlight in my apartment. My only complaint is that I find the light hard to turn on/off sometimes. The switch seems very particular about where contact has to be made. Otherwise, excellent product!
It fits in the back pocket (the slider) - but does not easily store inside the case or on the back -- has to be removed each time. As far as the light & using for reading -- it's excellent!
If you angle the light to illuminate the Kindle screen, there is a reflection on the screen. This interferes with reading.
This thing works exactly the way I wanted it to. It has three light settings, slides into the kindle cover easily, and is turned on and off by touch. The battery doesn't last very long at all, but overall I'm satisfied with the purchase.
I have the earlier e-Luminator for my Kindle and have been very happy with it. Purchased this version for my wife's Kindle 3 and am disappointed with the shorter flexible neck. Can't quite position it as well. The older version works great on her Kindle, but it is no longer sold. I also prefer the positive switch on the older version.
I agree with one writer that the light is a little too long for the Kindle 4 with the GO Jacket. Either the light needs to be a little shorter or the jacket needs to be a little longer and wider to accommodate covering the light when it is slipped into the holding slot. I don't put the light on and off. I leave it on the jacket all the time. Otherwise this is a great light. and jacket.
I have not used this poroduct so I really can't really say. It was free with the purchase of the cover. I have had my kindle for over a year and have not needed a light so I think I am fine without it.
Have not used the light yet....part of a Christmas present.
