Anyone know what the deal is with these lights???  I ordered my case a long time ago, and have been waiting patiently for the lights to become available (it's really the only reason I picked that case in the first place).  Their site said available to order in April, then I got an email saying it would be available for presale on May 26th, now on their site it says available summer 2009....????
Anyone have any insight??

M-Edge is notorious for never having anything in stock and always pushing their shipping dates back. Do yourself a favor and get a Mighty Bright instead. It's so much better! I speak from experience-I've had both!

I actually have a mighty bright, and it's better by far than any other booklight I've tried....I was just hoping that the eluminator would be convenient to have right in the case...
I guess the mighty bright it is for a while...

Yeah I noticed that they keep pushing back the date as well,I think some people will probably not give them return business because of it.

This is getting frustrating.  I bought an additional cover for myself and one for my mom because they were redoing the light.  They don't have the original light available either.  So for my mom, she has no light for hers, and does not want to clip a Mighty Bright to her cover.  Come to think of it, I don't think she could clip one on with the cover she has.

The politest term for how I feel about this is p-o-ed. I bought an M-edge cover for both my and my daughter's Kindles and have been dealing with the extra space that seems like it'll never be filled. I would go back to the Amazon cover but I really hate how the black doesn't match my skin. Heavy sigh...maybe I should get a skin to match the black cover because I reFUSE to pay for one of the M-edge GO covers.

---rant done---

M-Edge makes a very nice cover but their customer service and business model STINK. Everything is always out of stock or preorder and they are forever pushing their shipping dates back.

To those who stick it out and wait for this new light, I hope it is a real improvement. I had the original and loved how it fit in the case. It was really great for awhile but the light dimmed quickly and became very yellowish, even with a fresh battery. The Mighty Bright on the other hand is a bright clear white.

As far as I know it can be clipped on to any case and doesn't cause any damage or add much weight at all-and it's always in stock. :)  I have the purple one to match my Very Purple Kindle Kollection. :)

E-Luminator now "Available Summer 2009."

What happened to "Available for pre-order May 26"?
Simple. "We got too many complaints about continually pushing back our release date from people who pre-ordered, so to avoid further negative publicity that will hurt our sales even more, we're going to stop taking pre-orders."
