Kindle Night Light

Kindle Night Light

The Kindle does not have a backlight. It does not really need one, since it works well with ambient light, or with bright sunlight. It almost works like a newspaper. If there isn't any ambient light, and you don't want to turn on a bright lamp, then this eBook light works quite well. There are two brightness settings and I prefer the lower one. It runs on three AAA batteries and I still have to run down the first set.

If you take the light off the Kindle, the lamp stores neatly in the slot that held on to the device. I wonder how much mileage it will get in the summer with a sunrise of 5:30 and sunset at 9:30. ;-)

I want one, hopefully Amazon will list it here in Germany soon.

It sounds perfect to me for those hot nights we have at the moment. I really love having the windows open, but also don't want to attract too many bugs with the bed lights on.

As most of my articles roll off the front page rather quickly, I am making an archive of previous posts available here. You can also use the handy search box at the top of the page if you are looking for something particular.
