Gear: USB LED Lights.
Laptops sometimes come with a neat back-lit keyboard. If you don't have one then a USB LED light could be a solution.
What to look for:
- Brand Name (ie SIIG)
- Usually generic ones are cheap Chinese build quality
- Multiple LED lights
- Single LED lights usually do not illuminate your entire keyboard
- On/Off Switch
- It's so inconvenient to be plugging/unplugging to turn the lights on/off
- Flexible Body
- There's nothing worse than buying a rigid body system that cannot be moved to give the right angle to illuminate your keyboard.
There are many of these USB LED lights and most of them will be junk, but some are good. I still wish my HP Pavilion DV6T QE had a back-lit keyboard.
