They were willing to produce the Great Point Light colored to better match the Reader, however. The Great Point Light is a clip on, goose neck light that uses button cell batteries and is supposed to get somewhere around 30 hours on a set. The notable thing about it is that the LED’s are flat ended, rather than rounded, which provides a more evenly distributed light on the page. We didn’t have a dark place to try it, so we did the best we could with a dimmer corner of the room. The light seemed to throw a nice even pattern that easily included the full Reader (not just the page), and it was bright enough to see even under normal fluorescent lighting, so my best guess is that it should be satisfactory for reading in the dark.
