Recommended accessories for the PRS-505?

Ok, so I am planning to finally get the PRS-505 (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...ght=techie_007).

Last minute queries, what accessories should I get with it?

1. Bookarmor case. This seems to be a good case from what I have been reading on the forums, and should help protect it well especially considering I am going to be in a country without any direct warranty/repair support etc.

http://omniscience-inc.amazonwebstor...B001M23YJE.htm

2. Need some sort of light for night reading etc, looked at the wedge case, but it doesnt seem to have very good reviews. I am scared of damaging the screen with hte pressure caused by the wedge, + the not so uniform lighting and the easily caused scratches etc pretty much kill it for me.

Any good quality LED lights etc someone has used for this thing? Amazon US/US based links please


3. Any other useful accessories I should be considering?

Thanks

consider getting
--a charger -- like the one used for the Sony PSP.
--SD memory card to store more books
--separate mp3 player/headphones -- if you use the internal player, the battery life will really drop
--a comfortable chair with a good light source next to it.....

Enjoy!!!

The Mighty Bright LED booklight is pretty good.

Verilux is a good light for Sony Reader.

Before you order book armour, consider a simple DVD tin box. It might serve you better.

@gardenstate: The charger/SD card etc I can pick up locally if I feel I need those.

What I am looking at here is stuff I should pick up from Amazon/US stores which buying the reader initially and which would not be available locally.


Will check out mighty bright and verilux.


@astra: The tin box thing 'may' work, but then again, I may not be able to order the cover for a while if theres no one coming over form the US, so dont want to take that chance

I use the M-Edge Mocha case and a Mighty Bright light - both from Amazon. I would recommend getting the AC adapter for the Mighty Bright, and/or some rechargeable AAA batteries.

Whatever light you end up getting, make sure the batteries are readily available and cheap!

I use both the MEdge Executive and Leisure cases and am very pleased with both. The Leisure cover gives good protection both for travel and at the beach, gym, boat etc.

Congrats! I hope you love it! I use just a clip on booklight for reading at night, works well enough for me.
