I came here searching for better light for my workbench. Getting older the low light isn't working for me. I have a ikea halogen desk lamp now but it isn't working that great and hard to position.
My work bench is about 5ft do you think 3 of these would light it up pretty good? The small footprint and flexible look pretty nice. Also I assume not as hot as what I've been using.

I bought 5 of these a few months ago to use as machine lights as they put a bright spotlight right where you are cutting, the long flexible neck bends to wherever you need, the tiny head of the lamp doesn't obscure your vision, and they are only $10. I like them so much I have just bought 4 more for other places. The light has a bright LED and a lens to focus the beam into a tight circle about 6" in dia. For some of my large cast iron machines I modified the lamp base into a magnetized base with a cheap but strong magnet from Harbor Freight.
I also use this light on my workbench when I am working on small parts as the overhead fluorescent light is not quite strong enough. The intense beam does the job.
