The head gear light or clip on lights work well on welding helmets. Much easier than trying to focus a trouble light on your puddle. I don't think print is the same quality as it used to be,,,seems somewhat faded and distorted.

I grabbed a couple of these in the fall. Awesome.

It has rare earth magnets on the bottom, and back side.

I've never understood the term "drop light". If you drop it, it doesn't light anymore.

In the good ole days in the garages the lights were pulled down from the ceiling from a retractable reel...drop light.

I bought 4 of these.  One of them I put a magnet on the bottom and I can attach and swivel it where I need.  It's waterproof and drop resistant.  1 is mounted on my back porch to light up the grilling area, and the other 2 are mounted in the corners of the garage.  They use very little power, and are quite bright, and stay completely cool.

 

We buy these at work too for different applications.  The vendor threw it down on the floor, stomped on it, and then threw it down in a 5 gallon bucket of water and it still shined.  Great products. 

 

59.95 now.  I bought 4 of them for 120 dollars when they first came around selling them.

We've used the strap on l.e.d.lights for everything from ice fishing after dark to repair work, they work great. Trouble lights follow most of Murphy's irrefutable laws.  The rare earth magnet fasteners are handy, but there has been a lot of talk recently about them being a factor in cancer occurrence, but then "they" can seem to link almost everything to causing cancer, so who knows?

The wife bought me one of those LED trouble lights for Christmas a couple of years ago. What a joy. No more burnt arms and the thing never burns out or shatters. Has a strong magnet on the back keeps it aimed where you want it plus a hook on the top. 

I'd get another one in a moment.

Those LED's take all the fun out of dropping your incandescent bulb in the puddle of gas you just spilled on the floor!

Guy I know was working on a buddy's gas tank where he worked after hours at a dealership..  Sure enough the drop light lived p to it's name and ignited spilled gas from the job..  The back of the building burned down!!  Another vote for the head gear LED lights here..

Interesting idea. My kid loves magnets so i went off in search of info.
I spent a few minutes looking at some medical and non medical sites regarding this.
There are some standards for exposure, but these seem to be more proactive cautiousness than reality based need.
There was only one study that I found that showed any increase of cancer caused by static fields and that study was done in an aluminum processing plant. I would be as suspect of the aluminum and chemicals as the magnets.
I found a magnets page with the summation of several other medical and other pages. Seemed to be the general consensus.
