  • The Periscope light is powered by three "AA" batteries (not included) that last at least 40 hours.

"I love to switch between books - I rarely read one book at a time from cover to cover. So the Kindle is a great tool I have a first generation Kindle. I have often been on a plane without a proper reading light or the reading light I have keeps sliding off the top of the Kindle where I clip it, so I thought this Periscope would be a great. Not so much. The case itself is big and clunky - far bigger than the cover that came with my original Kindle and takes up as much room as a netbook computer in my bag. Further, my Kindle does not fit very well in this case - it sort of loosely fits within the pocket which means I have to keep readjusting it as I am reading so that it doesn't fall out. The case also features a notepad and room for a pencil which I thought would be useful but really it just takes up more room and doesn't allow me to hold the Kindle easily in one hand as I can do with the original case. The light on the Periscope is okay although the hardware of the light is poorly done and I have to fiddle with it to slide it in or out of the holder. In all, the Periscope is extremely disappointing and after 5 attempts to use it successfully, it has been retired to the garage sale pile. I have resorted to reading my Kindle books on my Ipod touch when there is minimal light since it has a backlit display."

"FIRST, THE REVIEWER HAVING TROUBLE INSTALLING THE BATTERIES? LETS GET REAL HERE. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS, LOOK AT THE DIAGRAM ETC..AS FOR THE LIGHTED CASE, ITS GREAT. HAD PREVIOUSLY ORDERED FROM AMAZOM THEIR FLIP UP LIGHT CASE AND WAS VERY DISSAPOINTED CHRISTMAS EVE WHEN I REALIZED IT WAS FOR THE NEWER GENERATION KINDLES. THAT SAME EVENING WENT INTO AMAZONS SITE AND SAW THE AD FOR YOUR PRODUCT. $20.00 LESS AND WHEN I RECEIVED IT LIKE 3DAYS LATER I WAS THRILLED! MUCH NICER,LITE IS BRIGHTER, AND WITH "GOOD" BATTERIES NO DRAIN ON MY KINDLE POWER AND THE BATTERIES SEEM TO LAST FOREVER. I AM SO GLAD THE AMAZON PRODUCT DID'NT FIT. THIS IS THE BEST,. THANKS EBAGS FOR A WONDERFUL PRODUCT. JIMMYMAC"

"It is quite handy to have the Kindle and the light together, especially for reading in bed or when waiting for an appointment, if the lighting is not good. I have enjoyed the Periscope very much."

"Loved it until I tried to put batteries in. The little battery door was nearly impossible to get shut. It closed easily, but it simply would not catch and stay shut. It took forever and was very frustrating."

"I use this every day. Was a little afraid that the tabs werent grabbing enough of my kindle (1), so I popped in a velcro strip on the back and it was perfect. The light is perfect, batteries last forever in it. I also use the note pad all the time (you can refill with a standard mini-legal pad)."
