I actually bought one a month ago, but have not been able to use it yet for a review. Still out of town, so it will have to wait. The video on it sold me. The first time I seen it advertised was just a picture, it did not impress me, but looked at it again later with the video, and is what sold me on it. I sure hope it lives up to the sales pitch. I was able to get it on one of their free shipping days, but even at $11 for shipping still seems a fair price.

I like most of you guys have all kinds of lights and they can never be positioned for effective light.  :cheers:

Did you ever decide to get the light?

 I finally made it home a couple days ago and my light was waiting for me to try out. It is battery powered and comes with a 120v adapter or can be used with a 12v car plug, which makes it versatile. The light does an awesome job of lighting the engine area when strapped to the hood. The thing has spring loaded hooks that are self adjusting to fit several different applications. The hooks are padded to keep from scuffing the paint.

If you are thinking about getting one, Eastwood has special on them for today only. 10% off with free shipping. The ad has the out the door price of $69.99.

That is a deal as, I paid $80 for mine and I thought that was a deal. The unit puts out even light all over the engine bay with no cords getting in the way.  It is easy to slid the thing up or down the hood for more direct light where you need it.  :cheers:

Very minimal heat, LED's. It looks better each time I turn it on! :woohoo: The light bar allows you to rotate each side to better direct the light pattern for optimum use.

Best light for the engine bay I have ever seen. With the spring loaded hook, will make it useful in many other hard to light areas.  With the reduced price and shipping included, this one day sale is hard to beat.  :cheers:

Cool!! When you get it  share what you think. I was skeptical and when I first seen it, thought ho-hum just another light. But when I charged it up and strapped it to the hood, made me glad I picked it up.  :2thumbs:

How long are the cords?  1.5/3 hours is decent ... but Im usually out there longer lol.  Of course extending them isn't rocket science .. lol ... just curious.

The 120v adapter is just short of 6' and the 12v is just short of 4'  Too bad the 12v is not longer to reach the lighter socket, but if needed, one could be temped to the battery. It would be easy to plug the 120v into a cord if the battery drains while using. Just getting the thing out of the box, I have not had time to see just how long the battery will last. The light has two levels of brightness. I seldom brag about something, but this thing is just perfect for my needs and hope others that decide to get it are as thrilled as I am.  :cooldancing:

Cool .... On their website it says 1.5 hours on low and 3 on high.   Not bad for such big light actually.

Thanks for response!  I'll sneak it into a "parts" order for Christmas!  Lol
