If you are the proud owner of a Kindle 2 or the Barnes & Noble Nook eReader you probably have wanted to use the thing in the dark to read. The downside to any reader with an eInk display is that the screen isn’t backlit so if you want to read in the dark, you need a light of some sort.
The Periscope Lighted Folio now fits both the Kindle 2 and the Nook and has a light built-in so you can read in any environment. The LED reading light runs off three AA batteries for up to 40 hours at a time. The folio opens up and on the side opposite the reader is a 5×8 notepad and a pen for taking notes.
The light is built into the case and you can get the folio in black or pink colors. The Lighted Folio measures 8.25″ x 7.5″ x 1.25″ and weighs 13 ounces. You can pick up either color for $49.95 right now.
