    Default work/task light

    I'm looking to get a new 240v work light if anyone can make any recommendations.

    it has to be LED as I don't want to be messing about with bulbs.
    I have a rechargeable LED 5w that is handy in lofts etc. Like this one;

    It is a bit flimsy and it's power lead is a thin a bell wire.

    I want ant something I can set up in a loft or airing cupboard that I'm going to be in all day.

    I don't have one yet but Screwfix have a range of LED worklights atm...some 240v some rechargeable.

    Make sure you pick enough lumens for the job...

    10/11watt LED = approx 75W incand
    24w LED = approx 125w incand

    I've got one of these:

    http://www.screwfix.com/p/defender-e...38w-230v/78401

    It's brilliant. Seriously bright, weighs next to nothing so you can hang it up with a bungee or a twist of wire. Replaceable bulb but I've had mine 4 or 5 years and not burnt out yet.

    I have a massive led torch that works of a motorcycle battery. It was expensive but will stay illuminated for 12 hours on full power

    You and a light with a cre led, not one with lots of smaller leds. I have a 2000lum 18v Ryobi hybrid light from the USA which can also be plugged into the mains although I've never bothered to sort a lead out for it.

    The 240v screwfix ones are good for the money, sparks on site has got one and it's good.
    Ammonia is found on Pluto, Jupiter and, in small amounts, on Uranus.
