Features a quality aluminum pocket clip, so you can easily attach the light to your belt, pocket, or tool bag.

It has 280 lumens of brightness on high, and 100 lumens on low, and it's bright enough for most tasks. While it's not as bright as our previous pick, the MagLite G2X LED Flashlight, it's not far behind. The LP290V2 also shines a more focused beam and has a wider beam than a lot of flashlights we tested, making it better to use when casting light across a room. The LUXPRO's beam is also more even than many of the flashlights we tested, making reading by flashlight much easier. The LP290V2's beam is also brighter than the MagLite's, and, at 4.87 ounces, it's lighter than the G2X. The LUXPRO's flashlight is also smaller and more compact than most of the other flashlights we tested. It's small and light enough to fit in your shirt pocket or purse, so it's more convenient than some of our other picks. The LUXPRO's flashlight also stands out for its durability. It's made of aircraft-grade aluminum, so it's light enough to carry all day, yet durable enough to survive a drop or two. It also features LUXPRO's TackGrip, a proprietary technology that makes holding the flashlight easier, and gives it a nice firm grip.

by WUTL

STRONG TAIL MAGNET - allows mounting on steel car panels like the fenders or hood for hands-free use. Also features a CLOTHING CLIP which clips securely onto your coat pocket or belt if required

This is a great little light for everyday tasks around the house, and it's much brighter than our previous pick. It has 120 lumens, 4 brightness levels, and 5 minutes of use per charge, and it has an up to 60 hour lifetime. The magnetic base is sturdy, and the clip is long enough to keep it out of the way when in use. The 4 AAA batteries aren't included, but it's easy enough to find an inexpensive pack that will last for years. It's rechargeable via micro USB, but it uses a proprietary charger, so you can't just plug it into any USB wall charger and expect to charge it. The only downside is the length of the cable, which is only 1 foot. The clip isn't long enough to keep it out of the way when it's in use, though, so if you're using it on a workbench or in a workshop, you would be better off using a longer cable.
