Recommended Light?

Does anyone have a light they'd recommend for use with the 600? I think I'd like to get one for reading at night, but I'm curious to know what you guys have used and what seems to work best.

Thanks!

I bought this light:

http://gifts.barnesandnoble.com/sear...453&x=52111702

The Mighty Bright Xtra Flex 2.

It is a REALLY bright LED,with two settings. It's so bright that it sometimes bothers my husband if I read in bed while he's sleeping. It has a really nice clip and it's really flexible and adjustable. It runs on AAA batteries.

Like I said, just extremely bright!

Looks good -- I'll check that out.

I should probably also mention that I'm looking for something that I can clip directly on to the device. I don't have a cover (the included sleeve is all I need), so I'm not looking for something that would need to be clipped onto a cover. Can the Mighty Bright light be used that way?

Thanks!

I'll throw in a second recommendation for the Xtra Flex 2.

+1 for the XtraFlex 2. It has rubber grips.

Got one at Target, don't know what it's called, but has 4 LED's, with 2 settings . . . less than 10 bucks, and as a booklight, it works great

Which Sony OEM light cover is better? The PRS ACL1 or PRS ACL6? Or are they both mediocre. They both certainly are over priced at >$70 CDN I believe both work on the PRS 600.

I have yet to get a flip cover for my PRS600, so I am suggestions.

Basically I need a flip cover and a light source.

Yep. You can clip it right onto the reader. It has a strong and non-slippery clip.

I have ordered one of the Mighty Bright Xtraflex 2 lights and one of their craft lights from a UK store (http://www.mightybrightuk.co.uk/mighty/shop.html)

I will report further when they arrive! Thanks for the reccomendations.

Hi - I bought a Great Point Light on ebay for about $5.00 - has 2 settings and is bright enough to light the entire page. It takes CR2450 batteries, but I bought 4 of those on ebay as well for about $2.00. I don't think the light would clip to the reader itself, but works well with the cover, for others that might be interested.

Thanks for the recommendations, folks. Looks like the XtraFlex2 is the preferred light of choice here. I may have to pick that up.

Anyone try the Kandle? It looks like it might be nice.

I did read great reviews on it from Kindle owners. If it came in black I would probably try it.

Whoa!!!

I planned on getting the M-Edge eLuminator2 light to go with the, yet to be released, M-Edge Executive Jacket. Since the Kandle is the same price I might as well get it.

I would have never searched for the black one (again).

Edit: Uh Oh...I just saw that 2 CR2032 batteries are required. Darn! I'll have to stay with my original plan. AAA or AA batteries is a must have.

Yeah, the battery issue definitely seem to be a downside there. Though, if the problem is in regards to recharging batteries, it looks like this might be a suitable replacement for the CR2032 batteries: LIR2032. And don't forget a charger.
