Thanks! There was no new price tag in the store and salesperson couldn't believe it's on sale until he scanned the package :)

Honestly can't find a decent use case for this - as a shop light, there are better and cheaper options. For working on cars, between my Bosch battery floodlight and this guy https://www.mountainwarehouse.com/ca/ex ... spx/black/ I can see everything way better, and they aren't super long or bulky.

Nice price if it works for you though... maybe as a portable tent light if you're camping and get rained out?

Bought one. Very not bright enought. 29$ is an ok price. Not worth more than that honestly.

Looks like it could double as a light saber! But seriously, I haven't used this LED light, but I do find the light from them is somehow much harsher than my old incandescent inspection light for working on cars and things. The LED ones seem super bright and full of glare when you put the light close to your work, but as soon as you move it further away it seems dim. Is it just me (or the LED lights I've used)?

Any recommendations for something better and cheaper?

That's the thing, for my use case, the headlight works way better under hood, and I'm very happy with the cheap LED strip lights from Home Depot. If you're looking for something portable, I guess this is a good deal, but the product itself doesn't solve any problem that I've ever come across.

I will probably pick one of these up. Focused lights are great when you're working on something, well, focused. (I also use a head-mounted light when I am doing brake, bearing, or suspension work. If am looking for the source of vacuum or fluid leaks or replacing cam cover gaskets, bar-type underhood lights are amazeballs. For $30, you can't go wrong.

so the light strip from home depot is a better choice than this?

If you're using it as a shop light and don't care about portability, definitely.
