Perfect book light for the JBL!

I wanted to share my find! I saw on a kindle board someone mention a new ebook light. So I ordered the Belkin ebook light from amazon. It is absolutely perfect for the Jetbook Lite! I am so pleased!

It does look nice and I like that it runs on normal AAA batteries not the Button types.

You know it looks like it would be great for the new JB "Mini", especially as it also runs
on AAAs.

My only reservation would be about how long the flexibility of that neck would last.

Luck;
Ken

Seems a bit overpriced to me. I carry one of those little knurled, spun aluminum, Chinese LED flashlights powered by 3 AAAs in a little battery pack (about $3 although Harbor Freight has them on sale 2/$3 right now) and a magnifier with an LED powered by 3 AAAs that cost $7 from the drugstore in my purse. Either one is easy to hold and, as infrequently as I need a light, is more than adequate for my needs.

I like to read in bed at night and this light is perfect for that. I was worried it wouldn't fit but the clip on part is adjustable. I was worried it would obscure part of the screen but it doesn't. Of course the batteries add to the overall weight of the device. This is the first light I've ever bought specifically for an ereader, and it is actually cheaper than the light m-edge sells, and the same price as the kandle, both of which I was considering. I am very satisfied!

I find it far more comfortable to read off my TV screen in bed (a wireless mouse makes good remote). No book to hold on to and the screen is backlit (yeah, I know, DUH!). I don't have to worry about possibly dropping a reader if I nod off and dealing with booklights. But then, I'm also lazy.

I wouldn't call it amazing but it is darned convenient. I have my TV patched into my computer so I just load a book into the viewer in calibre, switch my TV input to the computer, adjust the zoom, then kick back and read. I even play music at the same time, using my computer. I don't have to get out of bed to shut things down. I just run a playlist and when the playlist runs out, the computer turns off the monitor shortly afterwards (I can always shut off the music earlier if I want using the mouse). The TV I can either turn off when I'm finished reading or put it on a sleep timer if I expect to fall asleep first. If I want to watch a visualization on the TV screen until I go to sleep while listening to music (it's surprisingly relaxing), I just minimize the e-book viewer, using the mouse (I have an extra one I leave on the nightstand), and set the TV's sleep timer with the TV remote. Life is good (and yes, I'm lazy).

My belkin lite came today and I'm thrilled with it. I can adjust it so I don't have any hot spots, fits the JBL in a nice secure manor.

Thank you booklover6 for shareing this I'm very satisfied with this purchase

Yes, that is a nice booklight. If I end up ordering a JetBook, I will definitely be ordering one of these as well. Thank you for the link.

Definitely great !!!

I liked how the light head tucked into the clip portion forming a loop. I put a hook next to my reading chair where it now hangs out of the way ready for use.

It fits perfect on the sony 505 as well. If I weaken and buy a prs-350 or 650 I'll be ready
