45 LED Work Light $7.50 (Save $22.38) @ Masters

740

Looks to be Australia wide. I managed to get some via click and collect at my local store, but it is also offering me postage if your local store is out.

Brightness: about 225 lumens (equivalent to about 20W incandescent bulb)

    Great price for what you get, but 3W is pretty dim.

    so is it total 3W or 45*3W?

    • +2 votes

      135W is a LOT for LEDs. I doubt it as it would need some ballsy cooling.

      Found this on another one that looked very similar so guessing 3W total so you won't need your sunglasses

      Voltage AC 240V 50Hz
      45 x 5mm dia LED
      0.065W/pc
      Brightness 225 Lumens
      LED Lifetime 30000~50000hrs
      Cable length 1.5m
      IP44 compliant Splash proof

      thanks. i'll give it a miss

      i've got a halogen one which is way bright, but it chews through electricity and the bulbs tend to blow up regularly ($$) and it generates a sh*t load of heat (which is great in winter).

    •  

      It's 45*3W LEL … 135W is a lot (well not even possible I think?) for an individual LED, 3W is typical.

        NO, IT IS NOT. It is 45 x 0.067W = THREE WATTS in total.

        It is gutless.

        •  

          I stand corrected.

          Wow.

          I have to admit I just assumed it was 45*3 because that is so … so gutless lol.

    These do okay for the immediate area your working in

      They should have made it battery-powered. I personally don't think the hassle of cables is worth 3W of work lighting. Could be useful for those who want to leave it on for long periods of time though.

      That said, a desk lamp with a 5W MR16 led bulb would be brighter. :)

    $7.50 is good for LED lighting, but 225 lumens is a bit weak. I suppose I could buy five and tape them together?

    Work light- like for knitting in the dark

    Saw a similar bat light in Bunnings yesterday and was appalled at the 220 lumens. So as others have said, not very bright.

  •  

    Meh…..I just bought one.

    I will use it in conjunction with my existing roof light in my garage.

    Thanks guys for all your comments. Just saved me from wasting $7.50 on a light that I don't need anyway :)

    This must be a pretty bright light then!

    What the heck grabbed one to try it out. If no good then it will be going back. Cant find anything on the site that says how many lumens it is as per the comment above. ALso could it be that it is 45x3W bulbs?

    •  

      ALso could it be that it is 45x3W bulbs?

      Definitely not. That many 3W LEDs in such a small case will require a massive heatsink and/or active cooling. The LEDs in the photo are too small to be 3W LEDs anyway.

    For $7.50, that's a MAC meal guys, can't go wrong there :)

    You can also use it as a headphone stand.

  •  

    Masters just called, no stock available as it's a discontinued product. Money back guarantee for me :)

    •  

      What, do you expect them to take your money and give you an empty box? Talk about setting low expectations.

  •  

    can i use this to shine on my wall if im painting?

  •  

    In stock at Chullora, according to online store. No postage to me in Sydney. :(

  •  

    I got slightly excited when I first saw this post, then realised you'd need 3 of them to equal the light of 1 x 50w Halogen downlight…. useless for most handyman tasks.

    •  

      then realised you'd need 3 of them to equal the light of 1 x 50w Halogen downlight

      More like FIVE of them.

      These are just using indicator LEDs, no heatsink. Never designed for continuous usage. The chips will cook (internally) and it'll get very dim very quickly.

  •  

    I'd assume this is why they're clearing out the stock. They're only suited for particular uses.

    I picked up 5 of them.

    Their profile is a little large for the amount of light they give off, though for what I intend on using them for (pepper lights), they're great, cheap, 240v main powered, and temperature wise, don't get hot.

    •  

      Better hope they have a good CRI and don't flicker. :)

      •  

        I assumed they have a horrible CRI, though I'm a half decent color grader, so their limitation won't be felt as much. They don't appear to flicker, though their dispersal isn't the best. They'll need diffusion, making them even less bright ;)

        As with everything, you get what you pay for. I don't have the budget for CRI 90+ led lights.

    Was thinking about getting one, but considering the advice above, no deal.

    This would make a good toilet roll holder for the backyard dunny.

    Better off lighting a match

  •  

    showed up low stock (2) at box hill south…
    went there to try my luck and found two.
    +++ their online system accuracy lol…
    asked one of the staff to see how bright it is and i was suprised by its output.
    (ozbargainers have successfully lowered my expectation!!!)
    then bought two.

    also found a lot of lighting having 50%+ discount.
    and 100L storage boxes at only $12 ea with lids.

    happy shopping =)

  •  

    I enjoyed the free humour here. What a bargain! Saved $7.50.

  •  

    Remove the light and use it as a headphone stand. You could use the removed light to light up things in garage.

    Chullora has some stocks today. Bought one and it's actually not that bad.
