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.

Thank you,

I think if they were spaced left to right evenly above your bench and right above your head pointing toward your work, they would work well. I am using one of the lights clamped to the headboard of my bed for a reading light. The light is plenty bright and at about 3 ft. from by book casts a beam about 3 ft in diameter. If you just place them on your workbench the diameter of the beam would be about 1 ft. or a little more if you raised the head to its maximum height.
