My favourite new lamp
on 18 April 2015
I've not had much luck with inspection lamps. My last one failed to charge after a few weeks and the first one of these had an ineffective torch mode. Nevertheless bad luck aside, this lamp is far superior in quality than it's price tag would suggest.
the beam from the lamp isn't super-concentrated in on a narrow area as you can find with some, so this allows for a good spread of useable light so that you aren't constantly repositioning it. the magnet on the back is one of the strongest I've come across with an inspection lamp, which really is a joy when you're trying to get them to stick to areas which are caked in dirt that won't shift very easily.
Another plus is that the swivelling head doesn't do the typical annoying thing of not being able to support its own weight when using the lamp adjusted to 90 degrees. I've not had to make use of the additional hook support to stop this from happening at all so far.
All in all, a great little helper for any home / professional mechanic for those awkward jobs that need you to bury your head in the underside of your engine bay!
