A Kandle for My Kindle

Kindle (and other eBook owners) - have you seen the new reading light designed for the Kindle? It is called The Kandle (isn't the name just perfect ?) Love this gadget!


It's $25.00 currently (with free shipping on Amazon), comes with two extra disc type) batteries, and fits securely by clipping to the top of the Kindle. I love the way it looks and fits (firmly grips to top of book). The first photo (to the left) makes it look a bit larger than it actually is. It does work well for reading in bed or in poorly lighted places. You can even clip it to the side of the Kindle to more fully illuminate the entire screen.

It seems like it would be perfect for the Sony Reader or Nook as well, but if you own The Kindle, The Kandle is the perfect aesthetic match.

(product description)


The Kandle features a new patent pending design that attaches to eBooks and printed books without blocking the screen or page. The perfect accessory for any eBook, the Kandle is designed for the Amazon KindleTM 1, 2, and DX, Sony® Reader Digital Books, and other eBook Readers. The Kandle boasts double pivoting arms that allow for easy positioning and adjustment to tailor the screen illumination. The Main Pivoting Arm rotates 90 degrees from its closed position, and the Upper Pivoting Arm rotates another 70 degrees for complete customization. Unlike other eBook lights, the Kandle is powered by two lifetime x2 LEDs that are optimized to distribute light evenly without creating glare or eyestrain.

  2. Oh - great post!

    I have tried to make other reading lights work with my Kindle, but they have simply fallen short. This looks great and I will add it to my wish list immediately!

  4. OK, I'm going to have to have one of those I think. Thanks for pointing it out, Diane. I've needed a light on more than one occasion for my Kindle but didn't like the way the rest of them worked or looked.

  5. I may get one of those because I read late into the night.

    But it doesn't seem to be the light that disturbs my wife; it's the clacking noise of the next page button. She woke up the other night and asked me why I was using the calculator at 2 in the morning.

  6. Diane, I don't have a Kindle, or a Kandle, but I do have a little book light (it came with my Snuggie; yes, I did get one!).

    Nice profile photo! :)

  10. I want one for my Kindle too! I'm not sure if Amazon would ship it outside the US, though. I got my Kindle through the long-winded way...
