The cover just arrived I'm really shocked at how it truly does not provide enough light across the page to read in the dark, and concentrates primarily in the corner, just as pictured in the Amazon photo (the top review reassures that the light fully casts upon the page.)

Why there is so much discrepancy between my experience and that of others? I'd like to hear what your own experience is with it before I return another handful of Amazon products.

Now I'm considering getting the new basic Kindle with the better contrast and I'm looking for a bright, white light similar to that of the Mighty Bright Xflex2, but without the weight and awkwardness of the 3 AA batteries. Any suggestions?

tl;dr: 1) why isn't my lighted cover as good as everyone says it is? 2) which booklight is as bright as a Mighty Bright Xflex2 but is less heavy due to batteries?
Mighty Bright Travel Flex. It's super light weight uses 1 AAA battery that lasts forever. You clip it on the cover of your Kindle. I've had mine for a few years and I use it nightly not to read but for a night light. I own the Xtra Flex2 and that's hubby's night light. It way to clunky but the Travel Flex works great! Cheaper too.
