I gave up on shop lights, even the LED ones are so cheap they don't last long. I have a set of safety glasses with swivelable LED's on them that are really great, I use them all the time because they point where I am looking and are very bright. The fact they protect my eyes at the same time is a bonus, amazingly I haven't broke them in 2 years and are still on the first set of batteries!

I guess the fact they are on my head means I don't bang them into things.

All kinds of different styles, watch out how much you pay for them...I have seen them for as much as $40 but you can find them for $10 if you look around.
