    I’ve had several book lights but this one beats them all! Spendy but I thought I’d try it. The thing it, its brighter than all the other popular ones I have tried. I put it up side by side with the most popular bookight that Amazon sells, and this one beats them all, it covers all the way to the bottom of both Kindles I own, the 6″ and also the 9″ DX. It is super lightweight so it doesnt add to the weight of my readers. It fits very snug, yet is easy to remove. It comes with a USB charger that plugs into my laptop, so I can charge while I’m using my computer. I’m so glad, the battery thing was driving me crazy, and getting expensive replacing those batteries. Falling asleep with it on was costing me money! I highly recommend the Verso Light Wedge, I’m thrilled with it!

    I have been looking for a good kindle light for my 2nd generation Kindle since this summer. I did not want one with batteries. I tried to find the kindle case with the built in light but the ones I found were for the latest kindle. This one has a rechargeable battery through a computer via the usb port. An added bonus is that the kindle usb electrical outlet adapter also works with this light so you can charge it through an electrical outlet too. The light is very small strong LED light that covers the kindle from top to bottom. It is a little pricey but well worth it. I am delighted with it.

    Update: March, 2011

    I just wanted to add some more info after having owned this light for about 3 months now. I have had to downgrade my rating of it and thought the reasons why might be valuable to some here. I am still pleased with how bright this light is, the design, placement, and the weight are all good. What has become negative to me though is the battery setup and the dependability of the light source.

    I originally thought that the battery charge time was a side effect of it being a new item. I have several new rechargeable items that require longer charge times the first time. I am sad to say that this takes forever to charge! I don’t read for long durations at a time usually but I read almost every night. I find I can get about 1 week of reading out of this light before charge which is fine, but it takes it HOURS to charge, occasionally over 12 hours for some reason. I have often had to unplug the device before it was finished because I began charging it in before leaving for work, only to find that it’s not finished charging that night when I am ready to read. It seems to have a roughly 1:1 ratio for charge time and battery life, every hour you want it to run is an hour you will have to charge. This seems very excessive to me. I don’t understand how new battery technology works or what they had to do to have a long term light rechargeable battery in this device but I don’t own anything else and have not for years that requires such an excessive charge time. It also means that if I forget to charge the device and want to use the light that I can’t just partially charge it for 20 minutes or so and get a decent enough battery life to read that night before charging. I have to do this with phones and the like often. I can plug a cell phone in for 20 minutes and get a 1/4 battery life even on my Droid X. I don’t expect this to be competitive with a phone but I see no reason why it shouldn’t be able to charge fully in 3-4 hours. 10-12 hours is unreasonable and has been causing me issues from time to time with my normal habits.

    The other thing is the consistency of the light. It has yet to fail on me and about 80% of the time it works great and is very bright. I have noticed that it will occasionally change brightness level randomly however. I originally thought this was only a side effect when the battery was getting low. I have confirmed on several occasions though that it will do this even after I have just unplugged it with a full charge. It will sometimes flicker between brightness levels 3-4 times before settling on a consistent level. This level is not always it’s maximum brightness though. I have never had a problem seeing the screen in a dark room because of this but it makes me nervous that the device may fail and is very distracting. Once the battery level is low the flickering gets worse and will sometimes even sputter in and out at very low battery levels. That is somewhat understandable but I don’t like the device always flickering at any charge level. It flickers almost every time I use it at some point. I do not abuse or drop this device and have never strained any part of it. It sets on my night stand and I have the kindle charger right there for it and my Kindle so it never leaves that area. I do read while lying on my side so maybe the device has trouble with the angle? That would be a bit excessive though if it has to be upright to function properly at all times.

    Overall I am still happy with the device, more because I don’t see anything else that is better. This is compact and has had some thought put into making a nice light for the kindle. I hate goose neck style lights and this is the best of the bunch outside of those to me. I would recommend it with reservations. If you need a light frequently it may put you in a bind with the charge time and the flickering can be very distracting if you are trying to escape into a book, if for no other reason than you start to wonder if your $40.00 book light will be dying on you soon. Because of these things I downgraded my rating on the Verso.

    My Original review:
    I recently purchased this light and have been very happy with it. Before I was using a small LED push light to read at night while my wife slept. This is much more directed and convenient. I like that it is rechargeable and uses the same mini USB plug size as my Kindle so I can use the same charger to charge both. The initial charge took a long time before it was ready but I have really enjoyed using it.

    One slight disappointment for me is that it still uses an arm to light. It’s a very minor complaint, but somehow I missed the pictures showing the arm. It appears that is the primary picture now but when I purchased it the primary picture gave the impression that maybe the light just came out of the raised base. I actually liked that idea better than a little arm poking out. It does lock onto the unit when not…
