I will probably be using the Mighty Bright to read paper books aside from the PRS 300. Would the Travelflex provide sufficient light or do I need to add the Xtraflex2 to my to-buy list?
If you only had to buy one, which would you prefer, the Xtraflex2 or the Travelflex?
Xtine I have the Mighty Bright Flex2, the TravelFlex and the PocketFlex. They are all fantastic reading lights and all things considered, I think they're the best reading I've ever had.
I usually keep my large Flex2 clipped to my StairMaster and use it almost exclusively when I'm reading while working out. I've also used it as a keyboard light before I replaced the lamps in my desk hutch. That's a fantastic light, but I've found I seldom need both lights so a 1 light lamp such as the TravelFlex is a better option for my reader or for a book.
If you read in landscape mode, which I always do on my 700 & 600, and have it clipped to the book cover it makes holding the book even more comfortable because it's shaped like another finger and you can rest it on your index finger as your holding the reader.
I have pix of the TravelFlex clipped on to my 600 here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...t=57267&page=2
