Energizer Reading Light with M Edge Jacket for PRS505

As you might be aware, I am using a very affordable Energizer reading light with my PRS505 and recently I bought a M Edge Jacket for PRS505.

So how does the 2 stack up…

Not really well, unfortunately.. It does not fit into the M Edge Jacket and that’s expected as it was not designed to be so.

I understand there is a special M-edge e-Luminator Booklight that will fit really well with the M Edge Jacket but there is only a version for Kindle and not for Sony PRS505 yet. You can check the cool way the 2 work together in the Amazon web page: M-Edge e-Luminator2 Booklight for 2nd Generation Amazon Kindle

For the Energizer reading light, the header and the clip are too big ! :)

See this photo:
Too Big Head for the Energizer Light in the M Edge Jacket

So what do I do ? Throw it away ? No Way ! If I want to carry the light, this is how I do it:

First, I put the head into the end of the spine
Step 1

Then I bend the light (which is really easy as it is flexible)
Step 2

Leaving the Clip at the top of the Reader
Step 3

I then close the jacket with the head at the top of the reader
Step 4

Step 5

It is not too elegant (or classy or nice) but it works :)

Of course, it would be nice to have the M-edge e-Luminator Booklight for Sony PRS505 with my M Edge Executive Jacket but unfortunately, that booklight is still not available :)
