Unlike a flashlight, this innovative light is meant to be stationary in use, casting a broad but directed beam over a wide area, much like a car headlight. It excels as area lighting for indoor or outdoor tasks.
What really makes the light unique is the detachable base; it couples magnetically to the steel lower half of the light casing, allowing it to swivel in any direction like an eyeball. The 2" diameter base sits flat and stable on level surfaces, and can also attach to ferrous metal surfaces with strong cupped rare-earth magnets embedded in the bottom. There is even a standard 1/4-20 threaded insert for attachment to camera tripods. Only a tug is needed to separate the light from the base.
The 3W light has innovative COB (chip-on-board) LED technology with high, low and SOS settings. Powered by three included AAA batteries, it runs continuously for up to 3 hours on high with 300 lumens of output, up to 5 hours on low, and up to 24 hours on SOS. The wide-angle reflector has a 60° beam angle, and the rugged water-resistant housing (IP rating 44) is just shy of 3 1/4" in diameter (marginally larger than a baseball).
One of these lights deserves to be in every house – highly recommended, and sure to become a favorite.
