When you’re working on a repair of some sort, lighting can be one of the most important factors. If you can’t see what you’re doing, how can you fix the problem? A flashlight is an obvious choice, but an ordinary one really only does the trick if someone is holding it. What you might consider is one of these Striker Light Mine Professional lights.
This particular light is in a ball shape, and thanks to the 11 Neodymium power magnets, bears a strong resemblance to a mine of some sort. Those magnets allow you to place this light just about anywhere that has a metal surface. They are also positioned in such a way that you can simply set it down, and have the prongs prop it up so the lights are shining exactly where you need them.
Speaking of lights, the Striker has 8 white LEDs on one side, with 4 red “night vision” ones on the other. The lights can be configured into a high power spot, low power spot, red night vision and blinking red signal. For $20, I’d say this little light has a lot of versatility.
