Talking Nice cheap Reading light

I tried a light, recently, with a similar style clip. I found that that clip syle 1) didn't grip particularly well (due to the thickness of the EE), which affected the light angle; and 2) I had concerns about the clip damaging the rubber bumpers/strips.

Boris, I believe you have the usb light that Entourage sells? How is it for illumination? And, how much does it affect power consumption?

I tried a USB reading light similar to the one enTourage lists in Accessories, but from a different manufacturer. The seller was nice enough to let me test in on my eDGe before I bought it. Lucky me. The lighting was poor. It was, in fact, dimmer than the flashlight available with the My Settings app.

Thanks Boris. It sounds like an awesome light. (How many bulbs are in it?) I've been trying to find one locally to avoid the shipping/handling hassle, but definitely, haven't found one yet. When I'm ready to purchase a spare battery (hopefully, soon, because of the flux I'm expecting before the school year), maybe I'll add one to the order.

I bought this one a while back. I believe it was on sale for like $5 or something. Works out pretty well (doesn't tip over the eDGe) and gives off a LOT of light (7 little LEDs).
