What are you guys using for a garage work light?

General lighting in the garage is fine but I want something in can use when in or under the car. Fed up with using an LED torch.

Head torch on a beanie hat is a no-brainer for this time of year. I've always got mine on even if I don't think I need the light.



Aside from that I've got two magnetic LED torches and a massive tripod LED torch (Lidl middle aisle!!):

I use a LED Draper extendable under bonnet light which clips under the engine cover or onto the car lift. A portable LED work light is also useful.

Makes life so much easier, especially when trying to track down a dropped fastening which decides not to fall on to the undertray.
