can anyone vouch for this CAT LED light?

not looking for ones with cords and this one has great reviews. Anyone vouch for how long you can use it in a day? It will probably be on 3-4 hours a day. At my job I have to wear glasses grinding or not. It's pretty annoying and it makes things harder to see, so I need a light. I know it's not what the "pros" use and not a $200 Snap On light but it's a light.

If you read the reviews some of the people are using them 4-6 hours a day. if you are careful to shut it off then it should last all day for you. Shut it off when you don't need it..and run it on low if that is enough light for you.

it sounds awesome. Will probably get it. Bright with no wires is a plus. They make us wear safety glasses all damn day and the glare makes it so you need an external light source. I'll get it and report back on it. Also gonna get another head band light. My first one is glued to my welder. Amazon is great for reviews. I've read a few as well. Thanks

these lights kick arse! The Cat light reminds me of a really bright flashlight that's flat and that you can tilt. It's wireless/ rechargeable, can be used 3-5 hours a day, and you can charge your phone off of it if need be. It's small and looks pretty durable. bought a 4 year warranty on it for $4. 1100 lumens/$40

The other headband light is awesome too. It has these big lithium rechargeable batteries that are packed away in the back of the head band. This is one is extremely bright with focus and tilt, car charger, usb charger, and wall charger. 1800 lumens/$23.99

The box stores will never be able to compete with Amazon. At Amazon you can get reviews on lots of varieties and find gems you'd never find in the box stores. Their shipping is fast, free, and you get your purchase within 2-3 days. Who needs a $200 Snap On light? I don't.

Sad but true. Even though I live in an industrial area, Amazon saves me half a day driving 5 different places to find one part...

one week of owning these and the Cat light lasted all week. Amazing little light.

The Head band light has been even more useful. It worked great when trying to see how far I've gone getting out spot welds. Probably the best one I've ever used. It's a best seller on Amazon. Man, that thing is bright. So worth the $23.
