Hi Gilly, thanks for your interest. Do you want to send your mailing details via private message and I'll aim to get that Nero tabpillo for a Paperwhite off today. All things being equal, as long as your not Shetland Islands way or the like you should have it tomorrow, Sat otherwise.

I look forward to getting your feedback as to how much difference it makes
Thanks Stu, I've PM'd you my details Smile
Another quick one, want to confirm some details from your PM you sent, but it's saying you have Private Messaging disabled...
One sec I'll go and check my settings.

Got that, ta. Issue now is how to pick your style. Not knowing you so well - ok, recommend books aren't the be all and end all in personal tastes - i'm thinking the Houndstooth or Nero might work best for you. Let me know, otherwise it's the Mystery Dip... S
I really like the Nero, plain is better for me as my eyes get distracted too easily with patterns.

RE: Kindle – A real pain in the arms too?! A few more e-reader testers required

I was reading this post a few days and decided to contact Stu about his Tabpillo for Kindles. I have a Paperwhite which is great to read in the daytime, but when I am relaxing in bed reading or sitting on the sofa it does get a bit tiring on the arms holding it, or balancing it on a cushion at the right angle. Stu has very generously sent me a Tabpillo to test drive for him and it arrived this morning.

I have warned him that I will be brutally honest with my opinion and he still decided to let me have a go with it so he must be pretty confident in his product! First impressions are that it is very durable and well made. I also like the way it sits on a desk, the angle is brilliant, so if you want to use it to watch a film on a tablet or follow a recipe it should be easy. It should also be a lot easier to lie comfortably in bed and read at the right angle. Once I have given it a real test drive I will be back with a full review. At the minute I would definitely give it a Thumbs Up

I also think it would be great for those with dexterity issues. My Mum has no use of one hand and limited movement in the other so holding a Kindle or tablet and using it can be very painful over a period of time. I am hoping that a Tabpillo on a table or her lap will help her immensely. Again I will let you know how she gets on once she has had a go with it.
Only happy when I am immersed in a good Kindle book Thumbs Up

Got a really nice cross section of Kindle lovers set to start their week with a tabpillo and tell us more. Still have room for a couple more . Please let me know your eReader of choice, we'll hook you up with one and get your thoughts. S

Hi Stu, we received ours yesterday and absolutely love them. Nina has used her, I've not had chance yet (TWD was on yesterday so didn't get to read!) Will do my first proper test tonight, but it's all ready to go & fits perfectly.

Sorry to hijack this post but I can't find a place to post a question anywhere else. I recently bought a fire 8hd in the US and was wondering if anyone knows if I will have to buy a voltage adapter to use it in the UK? Thanks in advance.

Hi Joowlz, 

As first timers at a Trade Fair in the US a couple of years ago, we just took the standard Kindle USB 2.0 lead and then bought a couple of US adaptors online, which does did their thing with 110v. Have to be the same the other way?! The output's around 5v which is what Kindles charge with via the USB adaptor/PC and runs your USB coffee warmer (10 year b/day next year!?).

Hi Stu,

I expect you have sorted your requirement for e-reader testers for the tabpillo but I wondered if it would help prevent me getting really cold hands while reading? (I use both a tablet and a Kindle Voyage to read on.)

Hello Judith,

Yes, a bit of a problem at the moment - the 'ol chilled kindle hands. Caught up with a neighbour who does keep her hands warmer by using her kindle, now she wants us to come up with a remote control for under the over to turn the pages while her kindle just sits in place!

Still happy to take on another eReader tester, what type of tablet have you got Judith? You'll be right if it's a kindle, the wee Voyage is just fine, just the generic kids tablets are quite big.

Cheers

STU
