Quality Lamp Unit

"Good strong feel to it, ideal for in the garage/workshop. Would have got 5* but it does throw shadow lines from the cage and the flex could do with being a little longer."

Good value product
20 Nov 2012
By Anonymous
, Droitwich Spa
"There's not a lot you can say about an inspection lamp - it either works or it doesn't and this one does. It has a strong clamp with quite a wde aperture, which is useful, although the 2m flex is a little shorter than I would have liked, requiring the use of an additional extension, even to get it into the loft. The glass lamp housing is not long enough for some of the 'stick' energy-saving bulbs, so you will either have to go for the old-fashioned regular light bulb, or one of the spiral fluorescent ones. Remember to get an Edison screw (large) bulb, not a bayonet fixing."

Good Inspection Light
13 Nov 2011
By RogerGB
, Pagham, West Sussex,
"Good Inspection Light, but accepts large screw bulbs and not standard bayonet bulbs, so had to go out again to buy a bulb before I could use it! Also the lead is rather short for a product of this nature, so can only realistically be used with an extension lead :("

"1. Lead too short to be useful
2. Need pliers to release catch to change bulb
3. Screw thread bulb - why??

Philex Lamp
9 Jul 2013
By nico57
, Dunstable
"There aren't many decent hand lamps on sale, This one appears to be durable and has grips that are unlikely to scratch when you clip it on under the bonnet of your car.
The 2m lead is too short to be useful so change it. It could do with a metal shade/ reflector between the glass and the frame. This would direct the light onto the work and shade your eyes from the glare of the bulb. It is also quite bulky in size, otherwise a good starting point.

Just ok

"Cable needs to be longer, so it either has to be used with an extension cable or I'll have to rewire it myself with a longer cable - another job. Flex should be more 'flexible'. Incredibly sharp edges on plastic handle which I had to file down."

"Found the cable too short. Used lamp only once and the bulb fused the first time I moved it. I will reserve judgement on it until I try it again (need to save up first for a new bulb due to exorbitant cost of new energy saving type that is recommended for product)."

Cheap and plasticky
25 Nov 2011
By JayKay59
, Cheshire West
"Bought one of these in lieu of finding another all metal one as addition to my current one about 7 yrs old.
The screw in grille shield is weak due to being thin pressed metal and would not tighten properly. the side screw through it into plastic broke , at which point the entire light assembly would fall apart.
Also the plastic handle and clamp grippers don't open far enough and are also weak and fiddly with too much movement.
The original with a circlip type bulb cage clamp and the metal jaws was far better. This over engineered plastic version did not last 5 minutes.
