    Just what I needed

    I love my Nook! But I was kind of frustrated when I discovered it was hard to see in the light I had in my home. It's not the Nook's fault, it's the lighting I use. So, off I went to the boards to get recomendations and purchased this little beauty along with a protective cover for my Nook. I am so tickeled with it.

    It's important that I add as little weight as possible to my Nook because one of the biggest reasons I got one was because pain in my hands prohibit me from holding a book long. The strain of the weight and holding pages of a paperback open is very uncomfortable. My Nook has returned my love for reading by eliminating that problem and I wanted any light to compliment that. This little light fit the bill perfectly. I snap it on the the front cover as it is folded back and it does the trick.

    The adjustability of the light to being right where Ineed it and want it is great. It's not top heavy so to throw off the balance of my Nook at all and the amount of light is terrific! I do not find a problem with glare and having this light has enhanced my enjoyment of my Nook 100 fold.

    I highly recommend this light to anyone with a Nook.

    Finally found what I needed!

    After trying a couple of similar products I finally found exactly what I was looking for.

    - First of all the light is really bright and extinguishes all the shadows which might have been created on the paper by a less strong light.

    - Secondly, it can be easily turned and remains stable at any position turned.

    - It doesn't bother my wife when I'm reading at nights but even if someone would be bothered by the light, there's a second option with one of the sLeds working which still creates enough light to read easily and comfortably.

    - The clip is flat which means that it can be placed "standing" at my office and give me its bright light as I'm writing or typing something.

    - It can be easily used as a torch when you want to navigate in the house at night.

    All in all, if you enjoy reading at night, as I do, and still don't want to turn the light on (reading in the dark always felt cozier to me) this gadget is for you!

    This product is great.

    I love this book light. It is the first one that I have owned. I love that it is so light and flexible. Works best on hard back covers, but still works well on paperbacks as well. It gives off enough light to read with but doesn't bother others.

    Xtraflex booklight has some limits

    I purchased this booklight to use with my Nook. It clips on easily and does not get in the way. However, it seems the longer the period of time I use it , the dimmer the light gets until I either put the Nook away or turn on a lamp. The booklight is very useful in every other way - just do not use it for (perhaps) more than an hour at a time.

    More than I expected

    The light has only one real drawback ... the batteries. I have had to replace them "a lot"!

    Best booklight I have owned

    The Mighty Bright Xtraflex LED booklight is terrific. The ability to change the brightness and flexibility of the neck makes it more usable than any other I have tried. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a booklight and especially those who do not wish to disturb others while they read. It is the only one I have used that does not bother my husband when I read in bed.

    It works.

    nice LED light, does the job as advertised. It has two settings, bright and brighter. comes with batteries. I only use it occasionally so I haven't worn out the batteries yet. the external power pack is an extra $15,and must be ordered separately.

    Best booklight I've ever owned

    I can't speak highly enough of this product. Every feature it has makes it the perfect book light. I like the ultra-flexible arm so you're able to get as close or far away from your book as possible & it lights both pages very well. The light is bright & the ability to use one or two bulbs is a plus if you need to 'tone' it down for any reason. The clip is sturdy & secure. I bought this mainly for my ebook reader but it may be too heavy for a paperback--I haven't tried it yet. I love the idea it runs on normal AAA batteries. You can pick those up anywhere. Battery life seems to last as well. Great product & reasonably priced. Would purchase another for myself or a gift.

    Great handy light!

    We all enjoy having good light when needed. This small LED booklight is convenient and bright, right where it's needed. This was a 'stocking stuffer' for my wife for Christmas. She thanks me each time she uses it, and I appreciate not having to have other lights on to accomidate the need for more light. Now I wish I had one for my woodworking area!

    The best book light ever!

    I absolutely LOVE this book light. I am an avid night-reader and don't like to keep my husband awake with a light. This book light is just bright enough...and the "bendy" neck is perfect. I have tried many, many lights before and this one is by FAR the best.

    But no adapter for sale

    Its true, this is a mighty little book light. I've been trying different book lights for years, and this is one of the best. But where is the adaptor? The light starts out nice and bright, but of course, on batteries, it gets dimmer. As someone who likes to read for an hour after lights out, I want a steady source of power. I'm going to search, because I think with the adaptor - it will be the best light I've ever tried.

    More than a book light...

    I ordered 3 of these lights. I use one on my computer desk to give just a bit of task light when I'm working at night....plenty of light for me. I use one as a book light...and I ended up using one when I was checking on my 1 week old grandson in the night. I clipped it to the edge of his bed and turned it on to get just enough light to make sure all was ok...without disturbing the baby. I didn't expect to use it that way but unclipped it from my book and it worked perfectly. I'm sold on this little light.

    GREAT Little light!

    This compact light illuminates just the right space to use with my Kindle which was my reason for purchase. I have found it useful for paperback and hard cover books, my laptop and as a flash light too! Batteries are easy and inexpensive to replace. The only thing I would do differently is the on/off switch as it has come on in my messenger bag on accident.

    excellent

    This is the best book light I have ever owned. It's sturdy (I've had mine for 2 years and it still works like new). I love that the light bulbs never have to be replaced and that it uses AAA batteries which I always have on hand. You will not regret this purchase. Wish I hadn't wasted my time and money on other brands that broke shortly after the purchase.

    Good choice and good price

    I find this is an excellent book light. I use the highest level for reading, while my husband prefers the lower setting. It will act as a stand alone light for reading in addition to attaching to a book. I find it is easier to clip it in the back than in the center. It works equally well with paperback and hardcover books.

    Love my Booklight!

    I looked at other reviews before deciding to buy this one and it definitely did not disappoint. It's compact, convenient, and very portable. My Booklight has gone with me on a couple of international trips and it fared well on my travels.

    I like the option of having either 2 lights or just 1 on and if I need to pack extra batteries for it, not a hassle because it only holds 3 AAA batteries.

    Great Little Light

    Perfect for riding in the car, while someone else drives. (not too much light to bother them driving) Also, perfect for reading in bed. My son clips it to the drawer on the bedside table to read.
