It is, however, very bright; so I made a little sleeve out of cream-coloured paper which I slip over it to dim the light to less glare. The other problem is that sometimes when it's been on for a longer time the switch doesn't want to turn off any more, so then I have to pop open the battery compartment, take out the batteries and put them back in until next time. I've been meaning to get it exchanged at Chapters, but might have missed the boat on that (I've had it since Christmas).
I have this light as well. I compared to the XtraFlex 2 and found the Verso not as heavy. I like this because when reading in bed I can still hold the Kobo with one hand. I like the brightness, it's easy to clip to the unit and doesn't scratch it, and mine shuts off easily.

Rather than thickening the unit, maybe you could get one or two of those small rubber (or cork) adhesive feet and put them inside the book light clip.

I bought a great little LED eReader-Lite™ at Target. It fits perfectly on my KOBO. They had this particular one in the book section half off for less than $5.00. Since Target carries the Kindle, there was another brand that looks exactly like it for $10 - go figure. Maybe 'cos it was hanging above the Kindle display. I would look in the book section first.. Good Luck!

I just found a picture of it: http://www.capstoneindustries.com/eb..._ereaders.aspx
