Welcome to the wBW Flashlight Reviews index!
This page includes a listing of our LED flashlight and other motorcycle work like reviews and garage lighting accessories.
The day of the incandescent flashlight is now past; most modern flashlights use LED bulbs.
A flashlight or work light is one of the best applications for the LED bulb because the reflector and lens are designed to take advantage of the directional light from an LED.
Reviews are listed from most recent to oldest:
Big brother to the original Maxxeon WorkStar 220 Pocket Floodlight, the 320 uses three AAA batteries, which are easier to find at retail. The larger diameter body means a slightly different light pattern that may also be considered a plus.
Unique hybrid flashlight in a headlamp body is lightweight, comfortable and very useful. IPX-8 waterproof to 2 meters with a 1 meter impact resistance. Use it as a headlamp or remove the tiny 90-degree flashlight and carry it on a key chain!
Rugged build quality and a movable angle head, three brightness levels and an SOS and strobe setting make this an unusually interesting flashlight.
Is this the perfect toolbox flashlight? Pros: It has smooth, even lighting and it's tested waterproof to 100 meters. It also has a lifetime warranty and it's made in the U.S.A. Cons: No switch, the lamp assembly twists to turn it on or off.
Ultra retina-burning flashlight puts out more power than you can use. It's actually brighter than most motorcycle headlights...and could be used as a spare headlight in an emergency! This thing is a monster, no ifs, ands or buts!
Even more powerful than the original Clearwater Andie LED flashlight, this upgraded version has 200 more lumens and a low/high switch. Pros: Well made, powerful, comes with extra battery and a charger. Cons: Too much power for a toolbox?
From the folks who brought you the Pocket Floodlight, the Technician's Floodlight is a "professional" tool with a moveable head. Puts out a big, wide, even beam of light. Pros: Lots of light, can be positioned in many directions. Cons: Expensive. Kind of big for a toolbox light.
Slightly bigger than a penlight, the Pocket Floodlight puts out an amazing amount of light for its size. Great for a toolbox. Pros: Thin and lightweight. Puts out a lot of light for its size. Cons: Uses three AAAA batteries, which can be a bit difficult to find.
One of the most unique work lights ever, this is a flat panel covered with small LEDs. It's unlike anything else out there. Pros: Makes a good conversation piece. Cons: Difficult to position, top heavy and doesn't put out that much light.
A magnetic ball that looks like a WWII shipping mine. Has an LED light. Very unique and a conversation starter. Pros: Interesting, unique, magnetic. Cons: Doesn't put out much light. Difficult to get it mounted correctly. Attaches to ferrous metal only.
Probably one of the best toolbox flashlights you can buy. Rugged and reliable and comes with an extra battery and a charger. Battery lasts a long time. Pros: Puts out a lot of light. Rugged build takes toolbox abuse. Cons: Expensive.
Interesting hand-held "stick" form factor. Available in different shapes and sizes, with various arrangements of LEDs. Pros: Puts out a wide pattern of light. Cons: Wide pattern isn't as bright as a focused beam.
