Work lights are one of those instruments that have been around since man’s dawn. For long as people have had to work at night or indoors (or caves), they need a variant of the work light. Today’s lights at work are marvels at industrial technology in many respects. Some LED lights can give off such bright light, and withstand such minimal electricity, that they have become exponentially more capable than the lights of just ten or two years ago.
A good work light can come in handy in a wide range of situations, from worksites to emergency lighting needs. The newest technology has led to a market explosion for more niche gadgets or new take on old designs-some are great, some are not so much. Either way, under difficult enough conditions even the best working light will fail.
The key is finding a light that matches your needs but doesn’t break the bank. You’re not afraid to get dirty with anything but whose skills you will come to depend on.
We have put together a guide to some of the best lights out there to help you find a work light that both lets you handle the tasks ahead of you, while also providing the durability to justify the investments. Every Job Light on the list is a worthy choice, and we have attempted to break down each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
Ustellar 4500LM 50W
This led has a light weight of 4500 LM and consists of glass and metal to be used in wide areas. It takes up 50W wattage, is compact and easy to bear. Not only is it waterproof and it is possible to change the angle of the beam to 120 degrees.
This system has an operating temperature of 25 degrees Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius. It requires 120 V AC input voltage, and its current frequency is between 50 and 60 Hertz.
The best thing about this light is that it is environmentally friendly and energy saving device. It operates at two separate levels of brightness, and works from 25 to 50 watts.
It’s amazing that this system is easy to mount, since it comes with a 16-foot cable. It can be moved very quickly from one position to another and can be rotated for around 360 degrees left or right— so oblivious to how complicated the position where you want to work is; this light will still find its way around.
Snap-on LED Work Light 922261
A trusted brand when it comes to equipment, Snap-on provides a 2000 lumens LED work light featuring powerful super bright LEDs that “never need replacement.” This work light has low power consumption, a sealed on / off switch, and can be used indoors and outdoors as long as it’s a dry spot. Adjustable angle knobs make this light easy to turn while an ergonomic padded carry handle makes it easy to push around the house. And because it uses low-energy LED lighting, it remains surprisingly cool to the touch.
This light has a total of 46 LEDs, and it has a color temperature of 5000K. This work light comes with a six-foot cord with a three-prong grounded plug.
This light of work has overwhelmingly positive reviews, with many owners praising how much light it emitts with so little heat, even when it is used all day. Nonetheless, there are a small number of complaints in which owners encountered loss after just a few months of use. Ultimately, this is one of the top-rated work lights and you can’t go wrong with Snap-on if you are looking for a product with that form factor.
Neiko 40464A Rechargeable LED Work Light
Despite the Neiko 40464A’s small size, thanks to the 60 LEDs which generate a combined 350 lumens, it is still a super bright work light. It also has a fairly long run time of about 5 hours as it uses a 4,000 mAh battery that does not take long to recharge, either. Even the magnetic mounting is a great feature, as it enables hands-free use and it is also very easy to use because it can spin up to 360 degrees. And for improved longevity, it has aluminium housing.
Olafus 60W 6000LM LED Work Light
This Olafus working LED light provides 60 watts of light with 6000 lumens and 96 LED chips. Using this work light you will illuminate dark spaces and wide areas. It features two high and low brightness modes which allow you to control the amount of power you want to use at the same time. The high setting produces 6000 lumens of light, and the small produces 3000 lumens of light. The high setting is perfect for brightening up a wide field.
In addition, this work light has a lifetime of 50,000 hours, which ensures you will be able to illuminate your work site for several years. It also has a five-year warranty which allows you to replace the light or repair it in the case of any problems. This means the fabricator is sure of their work. You no longer have to feel any pressure as this light of work can make you feel completely secure. This light’s 120-degree beam is adjusted according to the direction in which you’re operating.
One aspect that makes the Olafus LED work light stand out from others is that it is waterproof with an IP65 star. This means it can be used in snow or rain. Without thinking it would get harmed by water at every building site or outside. This strong and waterproof working LED light is perfect for mechanics too. Its adjustability, brightness and durability are fine.
Cat CT1000 Pocket COB Light
The Cat CT1000 is a handheld flood beam light that uses all-new COB (chip on board) tech to dramatically increase lumen output per square inch, providing you with a much more great tool. Overall the Cat CT1000 generates 175 lumens of COB LED light from such a small system for an immense amount of illumination.
The light is lightweight but strong enough to stay on-site for one day. It is built with an impact-resistant and water-resistant “ABS thermoplastic core.” The magnetic base and pocket clip allow you to conveniently carry the light on long treks or for safe storage.
The Cat CT1000 takes about 6-8 hours of light with 3 AAA batteries.
