I'm with M&M my fluorescent has given a couple lifetimes of service. It's not the brightest, most stable, handiest light there is but it works most of the time. If it is too cold to light, it is probably too cold to be out in the garage anyway.

Now the LED's....haha the first 40 led lasted about 4 drops on the floor. Got a warantee one that lasted a few weeks of gentle handling then fell apart. The 3rd one is now dead in the corner by the trash can after about 2 months of carefully placing it just right so it would stay lit. Then put it on the charger after 4 hours of use at best.

My standard lightbulb destroyer actually still works after a millennium of years. It usually eats a bulb every other day of use but it is sometimes nice to have the extra heat on the floor when it is cold. I just have to sweep up the broken glass at the end of the day. haha
