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.
The on button is very hard to press, you cant do it with your fingers so you have to turn it so the light will shine in your face and blind you while you use your thumb to turn press the on button. My 7yo can't turn it on which is inconvenient with 7 being the age of "you can hold the flashlight". The magnet could be stronger maybe add another smaller one at the top so it stops falling out of the g d wheel well while I'm trying to free up my effin locked up rotor after work in the friggin dark. I can push it but its hard when it and your fingers are freezing, f u for scoffing and saying just don't be a p. The light is plenty bright and i've only had to recharge it once using it quite a bit over the last month. You cant stand it on either end thanks to the hook on one end and the charging point on the other. Overall I'de say s'ok.
The idea is terrific. The execution is not. The switch is hard to operate. The light produced is insufficient for my taste. I use my wire based Craftsman fluorescent light still. I wanted to get away from laying out extension cords.
It's still handy.
