Hello KindleBoards Readers,

We at Grantwood Technology are excited to announce The Simple Light for Kindle, latest generation 6" Kindle.

This is a custom made light that attaches to the Kindle via the attachment slots. The Simple Light for Kindle uses the Kindle battery for power (never have to buy any batteries!). We have extensively tested the light and it has minimal impact on Kindle battery life. Even better, is The Simple Light goes off when the Kindle goes to sleep or after 10 minutes of idle time, or when the screen saver comes on. The Simple Light is super light weight, less than one ounce and is easy to attach and remove. The Simple light snaps back into place when not in use and has a flexible arm for lighting at your favorite angle. It uses bright LED lights that never need replacing.

Here is the product: The Simple Light for Amazon Kindle 6" (Latest, 3rd Generation), No Batteries Needed, Attaches to Kindle, Black

Here is what it looks like:

We are very excited to release this product and look forward to your feedback.

Regards,
Mike

Looks very interesting!

Does this just rest next to the Kindle?  Have you tested this with Kindles in covers to see if it will fit?

thanks.

I've been looking for a light like this. Looks like an excellent product!

I'm thinking it'll be perfect for my JAVOedge flip case! :)

Hello Maries,
The Simple Light for Kindle locks into the attachment slots on the side of the latest Kindle 6" and uses the Kindle battery for power (very little also). A number of cases will work, but those cases that use the attachment slots on the side, will not. For those that like the bare Kindle, it is super light weight (less than an ounce) and stays locked on the side.

We are always here to help, if that doesn't answer your question, please let us know.
Regards,
Mike

Hi Mike, it looks pretty good!

Can you please tell me if it would fit (where the sides attach) in this case? The flip-top case has hard corners and I'm not sure your new light would fit in between. Perhaps you can give me a length measurement and I can check it against the case? (Sorry if I missed that in the item description.)

Hello 9MMare
Its difficult to exactly tell, as I do not have that product, but from eyeballing it, it appears it should work. As always with out company, if it doesn't work for you, we offer full refund upon return of the product.
If you do order, would you kindly tell us what you think and if it fits?
Regards,
Mike

What a fantastic idea. Do you ship internationally and how much would the shipping charges be?

Sure. The cover is on it's way and when it arrives, I can measure the distance between the plastic clips. Then maybe you can tell me more. And if I get it, I'm more than happy to review.

That does look VERY nice.  Especially for those who have flip cases or who like the Kindle nekked.

I like the idea. I have the lighted cover as well as the Oberon. I like the light but prefer using my Oberon. If anyone gets it that has an Oberon cover, I would love to hear if it fits or not.

Sarah, I would think it would be very similar to the Amazon lighted cover.  I have one of those and I notice very little extra drain on the battery.  I've never done a test to see how much sooner I have to charge when using it, because I never let my battery run down very far anyway.  But I know there is no significant battery drain from the lighted cover.

Mike this is so exciting to have a light like this!  I have been so waiting for this.

I have the amazon lighted cover, that i am very happy with but the covers themselves are rather plain  i have a custom m-edge cover and an oberon cover.  This light looks too large for the covers to close with it attached, however i have ordered several to try it.  (my husband has a kindle also)   
Keeping my fingers crossed!
