    Portable LED work lamps

    Hey guys / gals

    I'm after some portable LED work lamps. Rechargeable or ones that run on maybe 18650 batt's. Any one know of some decent quality ones either in NZ or on Aliexpress and the likes of that? Kind of similar to the photo but could have more LED not after massive spot more of a close range flood. Trying to get away from the delicate halogen ones.

    Corys Electrical have some nice ones on the shelf at present. Also has an integrated bluetooth speaker.

    Used to be a joke about solar powered lights, now its not just the Irishmen using them Wonder when we will start to use rubber nails or fireproof matches?

    Arlec make a unit almost identical to your picture, we have a few rechargeable ones at work. They work well in our attics etc. put out a reasonable amount of light.

    Yeah I've had a gander on Ali express wondering if one of them might be worth trying.

    Saw some in action on the weekend at our annual trout tournie. Think they were 20W versions so seriously grunty and also had the inbuilt bluetooth/speaker which worked well. Lasted for hours on the one charge. They put out so much light you had to aim them upwards at the tarp else they were blinding.
