Husky Work Lights Review

Why I think the new Husky Work Lights are the perfect holiday gift for 2018!

Let there be light. But really, daylight savings is upon us and I’m taking this opportunity to discuss something none of us really think about “needing” until we really need it, extra lights. We’re going to take a look at the Husky Magnetic Clip Light, Husky Magnetic Hook Light, and the Husky Aluminum Headlight. All three of these are great, inexpensive, but high quality grab-and-go options to add to your toolbox.

SPECIFICATIONS

The Husky Magnetic Clip Light is a great durable and portable option that packs a large punch with its illuminating power. This light is 200 lumens and includes 3 AAA batteries. With the handy belt clip/kickstand option it makes it great to clip onto your belt if you’re working on a project and allows it to stand up on its own which is huge when you don’t have someone there with you to ‘hold the light.’ Not only does this light have the belt clip/kickstand option but it also has a magnetic back, that attaches easily to electrical boxes or a car hood. Lastly, this light possess a high and a low setting which is helpful when you need extra light but aren’t trying to be blinded by it. I also like how its flat, and can lay down in a slim profile in tight places and not roll around. It becomes one of those things that are A lot more convenient to have once you have it.

The Husky Magnetic Hook Light is similar to the clip light in that it also shines at 200 lumens and comes with 3 AAA batteries giving it a 3hr run time at 200 lumens and possesses high and low modes. The main difference I noticed about these two was their size. While the Husky Magnetic Clip Light is more so the size of a large cell phone, the  Husky Hook Light is more like a hockey puck. The Husky Magnetic Hook Light also possesses a magnetic back but includes an integrated hook for versatility. While the light and clip light are not everyday tools that get used around the shop, they definitely come in handy and are great to keep in your car or truck not only for work, but in the event of a breakdown.

When I think of head lamps I think of a gag gift that I got my father years ago that he now uses regularly. I mean literally daily. When I was younger I would find him not turning lights on and just using the head lamp, simply because he enjoyed it so much. That being said, head lamps are extremely useful for a variety of different tasks and the Husky Aluminum Headlight is no exception. This is the crème de la crème of head lamps. The Husky headlamp illuminates at 300 lumens with 3 different modes: Spot + Flood, Spot, and Flood. This is definitely something that you can throw in your toolbox and take with you everywhere. It is portable, lightweight, and overall a great “just in case” item to have.

Oh, and one last thing to note about all three of these Husky lights is that they are protected by a lifetime warranty.

PRICING

You really can’t get too much better with pricing on these, the Magnetic Clip Light and Hook Light come in at $9.97 each, and that’s including the batteries. The headlamp is slightly more expensive at $14.97 but being able to get 3 practical, portable, and bright on-the-go lights for under $35 is a deal.

MY THOUGHTS

All in all, these lights are bargain. I think these are the type of product you can always find a use for once you have it. Keep one in the car, one in the closet, one in a drawer and one in your hunting bag. For under $35 dollars you seriously cant go wrong. I have multiple sets of small lights like this around the shop and the house, the magnets are super convenient as well. These are not only a solid product for yourself, but an easy gift for the holidays as well.
