This lake is compact and very bright but I really don’t think I can recommend it. It was fairly easy to put together but it didn’t last two hours before the bulb somehow shattered itself. As soon as you plug this light in it starts getting VERY hot. Not a big deal, that’s to be expected from these halogen lights, but after using it off and on for an afternoon it wouldn’t turn back on. After checking it out I noticed the bulb had broken, even without me touching or moving the light

This is a very nice high powered utility light. I use the light for all sorts of misc. projects including: painting, working in the basement areas without light, and working out in the garage at night. The light does require a little installation, which shouldn’t be a problem for most people. The instructions read very well. It is important to not touch the halogen bulb while installing. The natural oils on your skin can cause early failure of the bulb. Great item!!

I have a few battery-operated work lights, but was interested in a more powerful, corded one for working in a dark room at night for painting, drywall, etc. This light is powerful enough to give a lot of usable light into a large area and is a lot more powerful than portable versions. I plan to use both, depending on the application. My only complaint with this light was that the instructions were not easy to follow, and differed slightly from what was actually in the box. Minor complaint and has no effect on using the product day-to-day.

Southwire 500-Watt Portable Halogen Work Light,
Southwire 500-Watt Portable Halogen Work Light, I wanted an inexpensive light for the shop while working cars and other toys. This unit is for light duty. Not for use on jobs where it is likely to get banged around or moved around a lot. A halogen light gives off a type of light that I have not seen an LED light copy. It is a warmer look. But hot and you still do not want to be looking at the light directly. It produces shadows but less than an LED type. If you are looking for light on an occasional basis, this will work. An LED of the same Lumens will cost you about 4 times more. That is best part about this light.

I LOVE the Southwire 500-Watt Portable Halogen Work Light! First off, this is a very bright light that does a great job in my garage. Make sure to have the cage installed because the light gets very warm and you can easily burn yourself. It is very easy to put together and all I had to do was to look at the picture on the box to put the work light together. The lighting position can be adjusted so this is a great inexpensive option for quality lighting in your work space!

This SOUTHWIRE 500-WATT PORTABLE HALOGEN WORK LIGHT came well packed and took less than 5 minutes to insert the bulb and assemble following the simple instructions with only a screwdriver (see photos). This work light is lightweight and small, for tight jobs and the bulb (included) is bright, like it should be. The only thing to be aware of with this particular light is that it has no on/off switch on the light itself, so you have to unplug it to turn it off. If you need a simple, smaller, work light, this should fit the bill.

Very nice addition to my workshop. I have been wanting this light for a long time for use around the house, so I saw it online and finally ordered it. The size is just right, not to big and the light being 500 watts is supper bright as you can see in my photos that were taken in the daytime. Make sure you use a pair of rubber gloves, like surgery gloves to install the bulb . Oil from your fingers will cause bulb to burn out. The only thing I could wish is that the wingnut to tighten the position wasn't plastic and it had an on & off switch. Also there were no assembly instructions in the box so I had to look at the picture.

This is one sturdy little light with very bright powerful halogen light. Very easy to set up with Phillips screw driver, snap in bulb, wire cage, and attach handle it ready in 5 minutes. Heavy duty cord. the pictures are taken completely in the dark you can see how much light it puts off very nice. If you need portable light this will do the job you will be happy.

I was in the market for a very bright work light to use out in my garage, which is pretty dimly lit. I've tried using flashlights and even an old-fashioned trouble light when working on a car, but they were just so frustrating because they're hard to handle and just don't put out enough light. I finally picked up the Southwire 500 watt halogen work light and couldn't be happier with it. It actually lights up my entire two car garage all by itself! It does get very hot, like other halogen fixtures, but comes with a safety cage and handle for safe operation and moving of the light. There was some simple assembly required, including installing the included bulb, attaching the safety cage and base and screwing on the carrying handle. All in all, the assembly took just a couple of minutes and only required a screwdriver. The light does not have a power switch to fail ...you just unplug it to turn it off ...elegant simplicity. Sturdy steel construction completes the package. Definitely give this one a look if you're in the market for a bright work light.
