Philex Eco-Lamp, Clip-On
4 Dec 2014
By
, Cotswolds
" Could of been 5 star except:....
This is a good sturdy lamp with one annoying problem. The lead is barely 2 metre's long (mine is just under) and this is way too short, you're constantly dragging an extension cable around after you, I will stick a 5m lead on it, if I can work out how to get in to it.
Also, you will need pliers to change/fit the ES light bulb, the catch is too strong for fingers.

" 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
, 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
, 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 :( "

Philex Lamp
9 Jul 2013
By
, 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.

" 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). "

Hopeless
10 Feb 2016
By
, Lampeter
" Well engineered but not well designed.
1. Not fitted with a reflector shield so the light shines in your eyes.
2. Length of cable only 1.8 metres so you will almost certainly need an extension lead.
3 Cage can only be unclipped using engineers pliers or mole grip which damages plating when fitting bulb.
4. Not fitted with bulb but GLS type recommended so bought an Eco Halogen one - mistake - this intense point light source casts very sharp line shadows of the wire cage which is most inconvenient in use. I suspect a CFL bulb might have been better as they have a more diffuse light.
5. Cable is pulled every time the clamp is operated. I'm not sure how long it will be before an inner conductor fails.
6. Spring on clamp is excessivly strong. A much lighter spring would be adequate to hold the weight of the lamp and indeed if you trip over the short cable you would probably not pull the lamp away from whatever it is attached to but do yourself an injury instead.

Too short to be practical...
4 Dec 2015
By
, Bournemouth
" A lead lamp, yes, but with a stingy 2 metres of cable it's more like a "short lead" lamp.
It seems that this unit is a bargain - if you only requre a short lead.
Yes, I kow we've all got extension cables nowadays but how annoying ...
Most other lead lamps have a decent length of cable - I only noticed once I had purchased AND separately bought a bulb (at extra cost)
Probably throw it back at screwfix..... "
