I still love those NEBO lights, but in conjunction with my headlamp.

$20 on sale.

Anytime my wife walks out through the garage and I happen to be working on something with my head lamp/light on... she laughs hysterically and makes fun of me. Doesn't bother me really, I have zero qualms about geeking it up

I like LEDs for their long life, and the fact they stay cool, but to go back to Bikelok's original post about the Craftsman light - "It's a good overall light. It bathes the area overall but it does not truly give the brightness I like." - I feel the same way. When you hold them close to something, the LEDs light up the target area nicely, but back away a couple/few feet and the LED drop lights just don't seem to cover an area nearly as well as the fluorescent or incandescent drop lights (despite what the lumen ratings may say).

A few years back my favorite light was kind of like this - https://www.baycoproducts.com/produc...ts/item/sl-507. As far as I can tell the one I had was the exact same form factor, but was black instead of yellow, and most importantly was rechargeable instead of corded like the Bayco. No idea what brand it was or where I had gotten it. Convenient size, the 13W fluorescent could light up a work area pretty nicely, the spot beam on the end was handy if I dropped something under the car, it had a magnet base and a hook on the opposite end. I loved that light... but then the switch got finicky, and when I took the thing apart to see if I could fix it I screwed it up and the light was dead. Haven't been able to find another one like it, just that Bayco corded version. (They do make a version with an external battery pack, but that wasn't what I had. Plus the online reviews indicate the Bayco quality is suspect.)

In the meantime, I mostly use head lamps. Nothing special, just the standard parts store head lamps - I have one Energizer and one... something else. The Energizer one is due for replacement, as the head band is permanently greasy and the elastic is dead.

I got a whole plethora of led lights from LED my place. Got 8' tubes with a V so that is sheds lights in two directions.

Have 28 installed. Bought 30. Less than $900 into it with minor installation materials needed.
