M-Edge makes some of my favorite Kindle cases and they continue to innovate with a new book light that adds two brightness levels, new AAA battery support, and more. M-Edge also has a new Latitude jacket design and Sleeve jackets for the Kindle 2 and Kindle DX.

The back of the packaging list some of the features of the light.

It is nice to see the move from A23 batteries to standard AAA batteries.

The e-Luminator2 is slightly longer than the first generation booklight with a longer base to support the AAA battery.

You simply pressed a top button on the first gen light to turn it on and off. You now have the option of going to one of two different lighting levels with the e-Luminator2.

The LED bulb is quite bright and should last a lifetime.

Here you can see the new bulb (left) and older generation bulb (right) housing.

The top simply screws off to reveal the AAA battery compartment.

The e-Luminator2 (right) does not have an outer coating like the first generation (left) that actually gives the light more flexibility to get into just the right position.

The light can be rotated through 180 degress to find the optimal viewing angle.

The e-Luminator has two settings and this photo shows the Kindle display with the lower intensity setting.

This shot show the Kindle display with the brighter setting. There is very little difference between the two and using it on the lower intensity works just fine for me.

Here is a look at the black Latitude Jacket for the Kindle 2.

There is a pocket on the front that lets you access a space across the device. You can use this to store the light and charger.

The outer material is ripstop so it will stay intact. There is a long pocket for the e-Luminator on the upper back.

The Latitude Jacket is lined in polar fleece to give you a nice soft interior with added protection.

There are four corner brackets that do a good job of holding the Kindle 2 in place.

The corner bracket has a soft side underneath while also having a good shape to hold the Kindle in place.

The blue color Sleeve Jacket is quite attractive and has a soft feel to the outer material. There is some M-Edge branding on the front too.

There is a zippered pocket in the back for storing your charger and other materials.

There is a carrying handle found inside the left side, spine zippered pocket.

Half of the case opens up so you can slide your Kindle in and out.

The interior is soft and well padded so you should have no worries about keeping your Kindle safe inside the compartment.

The zippers all appear to be very high quality materials with the M-Edge branding attached.

The Sleeve Jacket adds very little bulk to the Kindle 2 package.

Here you can see where the zipper terminates after wrapping around the right side.

And in this view you can see the zipper goes almost over to the left side along the bottom.

The lime green is definitely visible to help you from losing your Kindle DX.

The handle is stored in a zippered pocket along the spine.
