I searched and couldn't find anything current on this.

I know the e-luminator is on backorder.  I've read that the delay is due to a re-design of the light.  Does anyone know what the re-design involves?  Has M-edge said anything on this subject?  I have read some unfavorable reviews about the light (flickers, short battery life, not bright enough, etc.).  I wonder if the re-designed light will address these problems.

Any current info will be appreciated.  I just bought a cover that accomodates the light and I wonder if it's worth wasting time and energy on a light that I might have to return.

I am one of the ones that likes the current light.  It works well for me.  I have not had any of the issues, so far, that others have experienced. 
I have not heard any news on what issues they are addressing.  But I do know that there have been some folks on here who let M-edge know about their issues. 
I also know that the original date the light was to be available was the end of March.  Then they changed it to the end of April. 
Hope that helps.

Thanks for sharing your experience, drenee. Yes, I noticed that the light won't be available until the end of April. That's why I question whether they are having trouble with the re-design. Or maybe they just got caught up in the K2 case rush. Hope they solve some of the problems I've heard about. But, then, they are a good company and I'm sure they would stand behind their product if there was a problem.

I too have been wondering about the new light... I've heard good things about Mighty Bright but since I have an M-Edge I guess I will hold out for the redesign.

I am hoping that they've read some of the Boards here, and know how much others love their Mighty Brights, and then try to incorporate that into their new design.  Best of both worlds.

That would be great. I love my Mighty Bright but was wondering about the other light because I just bought a new M-edge for Kindle 2. I use my Mighty Bright with an adapter when I read in bed at night but it would be nice to have a light right there in my cover when out and about in case I run into a low light situation. I don't see well and suffer from a lot of eye strain if I don't have great light to read in.

I have the e-luminator light, and love it. I've replaced the little battery in it but it's not big deal......97 cents for the battery. :)

I also have the "original" one and have had zero problems with it. No flickering, short battery life or anything.  I love that it tucks into the cover and I don't have to keep track of one more thing.

Thank you to all of you for your opinions.  It's nice to know that there are some out there who have not had problems with the light.  Maybe I'll get lucky or M-edge will work out the flaws.  Since I already have the cover to accomodate it, I'd like to try it.  I wonder how firm their late April preorder date is.  They've already changed it from late March.

I'm hoping they got so caught up in making K2 covers that the light got put on the back burner.  Now that the covers are all designed and on the site, they can concentrate on the light and get it to us ASAP.

Ruby, I completely agree with not having to keep up with one more thing.  I don't recall having to take this many things when my kids were little.  New technology is so wonderful.  LOL.

The light is M-edge cover specific, which is what I like about it.

That's why I want one! It would be nice to not have to worry about trying to fit it into my Borsa Bella bag, since it just slips right into the case!

There are so many gadgets for kids these days! Happily, we are done w/sippy cups, snack containers, strollers, etc., but now they have to have their electronics when we travel :)

A week ago I Emailed Medge to inquire about the exact release date and what improvements were made.  They emailed me back stating that they are not sure exactly when the product will be available ( although can pre-order late April).  They went on to say that they cannot comment on the improvements because the light is still in the design stage.  They suggested that I sign up for their Email list and as soon as any info is available they will let me know.  I did sign up and as soon as I receive any further info I will post this on the Boards.

In the meantime I also have a mighty bright light that works well but would like the convenience of a built-in light and am waiting anxiously for the 2nd generation E-illuminator.  I did not buy the 1st generation since I read that too many people were having problems with them.

Thanks for keeping us informed. I also love my MightyBright but would like to have the convenience of a light right there in my case in a pinch.

I too have the Mighty Brite light and like it but I think I try the M-Edge when it comes out.  I also like that it can be stored in the case.  I'm hoping they use a AAA battery to make it more economical..
