Not had a great experience with 2 of these bought.,
This review is from: Really Tiny Booklight - Purple (Kitchen & Home)
I bought 2 of these (although admittedly not from Amazon) and haven't had great experiences with either. I bought one for my mother to use with ordinary paperbacks and one for myself to use with my Kindle. The small clip broke off of my mother's within 2 or 3 uses. My own experience with my Kindle was initially that this was exactly what I was looking for to clip onto the budget cover I had bought. The first 2 nights it worked great (probably used for a total of 90 minutes over both those nights). By the third night however the light was getting increasingly poor and only lighting the top half of the page. By the fourth and fifth night the light was only strong enough to light the first few lines of each page.
I then borrowed my mother's (the one with the broken clip), as the light on her's still seemed to be strong. I used some tape to clip it to the back of my kindle case (not bothered about it spoiling the cover as it was so cheap). But unfortunately after a few days of using it I started to experience another problem which I read a review here of someone having similar problems, in that the light started flickering on and off as if the battery compartment was loose.
Would definitely not recommend this product. Am disappointed as I had high hopes for what seemed like a handy little device.
