The latest researches have shown that blue light prevents the production of melatonin (daily rhythms regulator), which is necessary for a person to sleep. Therefore, after reading on a glowing screen of an ordinary tablet or smartphone, it is often difficult to fall asleep. MOON Light 2 allows you to adjust the brightness of cold and warm LED lights independently, choosing at will white light for reading during the daytime, and more yellow for reading before sleeping. The Flicker-Free technology, based the use of a DC power supply, makes it possible to avoid shimmering of the LEDs which significantly reduces discomfort for sight and eye fatigue while long reading with the screen light on.

Protective ONYX Glass is applied onto the E Ink screen and protects it from scratches and other damages.

It provides improved glare protection and does not hamper light passing.
