I saw it on sale at Canadian Tire for $14.99 a couple of weeks ago when I picked up some Dynamo Radio/Reading Lights on clearance and I thought it looked interesting but I wouldn't pay nearly that much for it.

Seeing it on for $4.99 as today's The Source Circuit Breaker I thought I'd get one - if it is any good I've got a fairly good deal - if not I can still take it back for a refund.

You can build these your self or I could put one together from different peices, but that would take a lot more work and would probably be 1 or 3 LEDs max - this way I've got 5 LEDs so it should illuminate my entire keyboard.

I'm just a bit worried how it will work out if it has no Off switch when plugged into the USB port. It's annoying to have to take it out every time I don't want it on.

It should be compact and small enough to slip in my laptop bag for whenever it is needed, just hope it's not too bright or that elminates the purpose of it. If it works out well I could skip having an extra light on when I work on the laptop late at night, save power and not have to get up to switch it on and off. Plus the LEDs should last a great deal of time and USB power is so standard I can use this potentially with my other USB power sources if I want to, or as a reading light when I travel light. Especially if it can accept 5V or so from another connector (ie. if the USB cord is removable...we'll see. Picking it up for $5.68 with tax and all tomorrow.
