This is great for all uses. Its portable so you can take it anywhere. The light is super bright "dont look at the light". The charge last a pretty long time. Well lets just say It has not went dim on me yet. The hook on it is good for attaching to anything when you need both hands. After all said it does not cost an arm and a leg like you would find elsewhere. Buy one and one for your freind.
Craftsman Cordless Rechargeable Work Light with 35 LED lights was a poor experience for me. Maybe, I just got a bad one out of the box, but had a few issues with this work light. It worked great at first and then about a month after purchase, I started noticing that the use times between charges was getting shorter & shorter. Before the degrading battery life, I had plenty of light for working under yard tractors & lawn tractors. I was not thrilled with the hanging hook. It was too small to really hang & keep light pointing where you wanted it to point (a bit too flimsy for me). I did like the ability to be able to recharge the light from my pick up truck or to be able to charge directly from a wall socket on my work bench in my shop. The plus's for this light were; good light, portability, ability to charge using a/c or d/c power sources. The negatives for this light were; battery did not last very long after about a month of use, the top hanging hook was too flimsy, mounting magnet would not hold the light all of the time or would be knocked loose pretty easy, I really was not too thrilled with the switch for the different light engagements (click for flas light, click for work light, & click again for all the lights, too much cycling of the switch to get the light you needed). This light had a 1-yr warranty, but due to unexpected illness, I was unable to exchange. I did go to the store to see if could be exchanged, but was too late. I did have one other friend that got the same light as a gift for Christmas, when I got my light & he had the same battery issue. His only lasted about 2 weeks before he started loosing the battery. If it had a more reliable battery, I might give it another chance, but with other reviews I have seen, me & my buddy were not the only ones, that had bad battery experiences with this light.
this is handy that you can recharge it or just plug it in. Needs its own special charger (one more thing to keep track of) and the light isn't as bright as another one we got from a cheaper store. If you find a good deal on this light I do use it some and is handy as a shop light but just doesn't seem as bright as others. Figured the Craftsman would be the best but like my other one better
