Lidl have their car LED inspection light on offer again. 23 LEDs down one
side of a tube shape, as it were, which has a hook or magnetic attachment.
Come with car battery and mains chargers. Lasts about 4 hours on a charge
-all for 8 quid. No car should be without one. ;-)

Yes, they're good - I bought one a while ago.
But be careful how you store it. I came to use mine recently after it
had been stored in the storage compartment under the boot floor - and it
had a flat battery. I assume that something had been pressing against
the ON button!
It's a small mechanical switch under a waterproof cover so fairly hard
to trigger easily.
Bought a couple yesterday. Not hugely bright LEDs (or with any form of
reflector/focussor) but the spacing of them should reduce shadows
from a point source torch and be useful.
 I know LEDs are directional but there's usually a little spillage
and reflections from whatever lens/cover they're behind that would be
I suppose it could have self-discharged. I hadn't looked at it for quite
a while. [Prompt: I'd better check it again!]
Incidentally, if the battery does go flat, you can run the lamp from the
charging cable as long as you're near enough to a cigar socket.
