This. Especially on the 'high' setting.Can't say the battery lasts a whole lot of time though.
What I've noticed with at least HF's LED offerings... they're very 'binary' w/ regard to power. Meaning... they've got enough juice to power them one second, and the next... 'poof'.
When you're right in the middle of something under a vehicle, that's not the time I want to be suddenly in the dark (more than usual, anyway)
The other thing is that while (most?) of them will work while the power supply is hooked up, they consume almost all the juice from the wall wart while working -- so if you want / need to disco the cord after awhile, the battery doesn't have much charge. Back to square one.
Bottom line... I don't use this as much as I'd like to, anymore.
I wound up hooking up a couple of their 48" LED shop lights (120v) to the ceiling and angling the output about 45 degrees. Excellent solution, and as long as ComEd has power coming in, I've got very good light, above board. TBH, I just leave them running FT, given that they're LED.
Now they have a 48" that can be daisy-chained 4-in-line, so you only need one outlet. But they're a bit more expensive.
