Below the fold, a look at some nice work lights.
Work lights -- great for attics, crawl spaces, under the hood of your vehicle, in the back yard at night. You just can't get along without them. Advances in technology -- lithium ion batteries, LED's -- all contribute to light weight, long life, and great convenience.
For the garage or shop, I like this Alert Pro Reel retractable work light. Shown at the right, it has a powder-coated housing, a grounded bulb guard (you wouldn't think this was important, until you were "poked" by an ungrounded one, standing in wet boots; don't ask), a handle-mounted circuit breaker and outlet in the handle, and 50' of 18 gage wire.
Also for the shop or work site, this Bayco Light Tripod. I have used this model extensively and was very happy with it; it has adjustable legs on a telescoping tripod, dual illumination settings, a tempered lens with a safety grill -- work lights tend to get hot -- and the package includes the bulbs plus a spare. Shown left.
Another tripod light, albeit a bunch smaller, is this Stanley Mini MaxLife work light. It features 3 LED's in a multi-position composite ABS head with a polycarbonate lens; runs on three (not included) AAA batteries. Shown right.
I like rechargeable stuff, so I'm on board with this National Electric Rechargeable LED work light. With no cord to drag around, it's tops in convenience. It sports 78 LED's, has a pair of power settings, a polycarbonate lens, an unbreakable housing, and an included 12 volt car charger. This is my next work light.
Another neat LED work light is this Black and Decker Snake unit. It combines with a flashlight for all-around usefulness, has a flex neck, and runs on two (included) C batteries.
Work lights -- you can't get along without tools like these, in my view. Besides that fact, they would make a great stocking stuffer for the handyman or handywoman in your life.
