Re: [FWDLK] Looking for recommendations on a GOOD LED cordless/rechargeable work light to purchase



What do I do about my array of 8' shop lights, all at ~14' ceiling -/ No LED's for 8' retrofit . . .

Fern, you are referring to bulbs for table lamps,
I'm talking about 4 foot LED tubes that are 120 volt and run off of wall current.

Also, in case lots of 16 @ $6.99 and up go here:
https://www.1000bulbs.com/category/led-tube-price-break/


Choices are Color Temperature: 3500 Kelvin and higher = from Blue/white to Stark white or warmer to harsher light.
And Lumens = brightness In a shop environment, it's bright to brighter. 
Also note that some are plastic tubes and not glass. 1 of mine came broken in half, I wrapped the break in clear shipping tape and it works fine.

Ray, the newer led bulbs still have an internal ballast.

Not about portable work lights but a brighter shop environment.
I have converted 14 or so Florescent 2 tube shop lights in my shop to LED bulbs.
The rest have the electronic ballasts built into the actual ends where the bulbs install.
2 kinds of LED bulbs are available.
1. Direct replacement, using the original ballast, plug and play. While giving much brighter and better light, still wastes electric, with a useless ballast.
2. 120 volt. Take the shop light down, remove the bulbs, cut the wires and take  the ballast out. The LED tubes look just like regular tubes with 2 prongs at each end.
Only 2 at one end are used for the current. The 2 at the other end just support the bulb. You connect the 120 volt wire coming in, to the "Tombstones" on one end. Instructions are included, very simple.
Put the cover back on, install the bulbs and hang the fixture. Maybe 10
minutes per fixture.
Note that included with the bulbs us a sticker to place on the fixture as a warning it has been rewired.
Sorry for the detailed explanation, but it is so simple that anyone can do it.

Well worth it, much better light, which can be selected as to whiteness, near forever life of the bulb and cut your light bill to 25% or less of what it costs you now.
My cost was about $6.78 per bulb in a case of 16 bulbs. $125.00 including shipping.
Go to "1000bulbs.com".
I've had friends replace 2 bulbs in a 4 bulb ceiling light and had much brighter light.

Hope this helps some dark shops, at my age I need all the light I can get!

Mail List members,
 
Do any of you have a recommendation on a GOOD LED cordless/rechargeable work light?  I am tired of the local poor quality lights I have purchased in the past that
do not last nor provide sufficient lumens for working in the engine bay and cab...thank you for any recommendations!
