    Works for me

    I use it in my remote garage which has no power, but I have a small generator.

    The said generator is used when I use my welder or table saw. Any time the generator is running it also charges all of my battery tools including the light, most often this keeps everything charged.

    As I work mostly in the daytime, this works very well. I took advantage of the double offer as for security reasons I have no windows, and so even in daylight, I need a little extra light toward the back.

    Part of my success was to divide the hype by two so that I got about what I was expecting. I would recommend this to a friend, but only with an explanation of my usage.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    As soon as I took it out of the package and hung it, it already needed to be charged. I charged it, hung it, didn't use it for a while. Turned it on, needs charging again. Would never recommend to anyone. I can't afford to waste money on junk. The only thing good about it is that it was as bright as stated. A lot of good that does if it doesn't even stay charged. Sorry Bell & Howell, thumbs down to you. Maybe you should spend more on your product and less on your advertising.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Nice light output but it blew up after four months

    I purchased two of these (one of them still works), but this one wouldn't charge since it came from "wally world" on the As Seen On TV. I bought two. Well, I took the back off and the board had smoked, it was black. Keeping the lightbar of LEDs itself maybe I can make a new board for it. For only having it four months I give it a 3.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Horrible and dangerous product

    Bell & Howell should be ashamed to have their name on this badly designed cheaply built fire hazard! The capacitor on the charging circuit blew. The wiring in series with the 2 batteries actually melted (desoldered) and the light coming on while charging and the smell (thank God I was home) alerted me to unplug and take apart to see what happened! SHAMEFUL Bell & Howell! Get your name off this trash!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Many great features, BUT...

    Lighting is great, portability is great, it is lightweight and pretty sturdy. But I found the ultra-thin wires inside burn off if it is plugged in all the time. Mounted one at the top of an enclosed stairwell going upstairs, one at the bottom of stairs going to the cellar. Noticed once when the power went off they did not come on. (Yes I had it in auto mode and had tested them by unplugging them when I mounted them.) Opened them up to find a thin (really thin) yellow wire in each had burnt off at a connection. They were very very difficult to solder back on. One I could not and the other would no longer work in auto mode.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
