M-Edge Unveils New Touch-Activated e-Luminator eReader Light
 
 

There is a lot to like about using a dedicated eReader like the Amazon Kindle rather than using a tablet like the iPad to read. The problem with reading books on the iPad is that in a bright room or outdoors there is a huge amount of glare making it uncomfortable and impossible at times to read. The eReader on the other hand has an eInk screen that is designed with no backlight and you can read it outside easily.

The downside to an eReader is that the lack of a backlight means you can’t read in the dark without a light of some sort. M-Edge has announced a new light for the Kindle 3 called the e-Luminator Touch that has a slim neck and come in white or gray colors to match the Kindle. The light is designed to work with any of the universal fit M-Edge cases.

The cool feature about this light is that it is touch operated. All you have to do it tap the switch area and it will turn on. Some of the other lights on the market have switches that need two hands to operate. The light has a lens that spreads the light evenly across the surface of the Kindle and gets power from a single AAA battery.

The neck of the light is flexible allowing the user to position the light right where they need it. The support arm is made to allow for easy stored in an M-Edge cover with a pocket for a light. The arm is also designed like a paper clip to allow you to pull it off and use it on a magazine or paperback book as well.

The light is also designed to turn itself off after 60 minutes to conserve power if you fall asleep reading. The light will work with other eReaders too including the Nook, Kobo and others. You can order the light right now for $19.99.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
