Portable Work Light?

The two of the last three I bought were total crap and didnt last mor than a few months...the other decent one was an Astro rechargeable but my Dad stole it from me when I was working on his van . Any recommendations? I like them with magnetic bases and rechargeable.

I have several of the CAT lights that we picked up from Costco. Haven’t seen them there in a while, but they work great and are rechargeable. Maybe look for those. They are smaller, so i keep one in each vehicle and the larger one in my truck toolbox. They have definitely helped on side-of-the-road repairs on mine and other’s vehicles.
One day I will wake up and realize that my jeep is day, I just know it.

I'm using the Oracle handheld work light that I bought at 4wheelonline. A bit pricey but works great. It has a spot light and flood light. The magnets are adjustable so you can place it almost anywhere.

I've had this Ryobi 20w lamp for a couple years now, and while it's not magnetic it does have a nice hook on it. This thing is BRIGHT, and will go about 6 hours on one of the 6AH batteries.

They don't give em away, but I've put mine through the ringer several times, and it's held up amazingly well.

I am embarrassed to say, I live on the free lights (both the black flashlights and the blue puck ones) from Harbor Freight.
