Big, freaking lights. That's the ticket, when you're off the grid and need to get some work done, there's nothing like 1,000 lumens of illumination. Ultra-Tow, maker of all things useful on a vehicle, brings the sun with its 12V LED work light.
The 15W flood light uses five LEDs to provide outstanding coverage while drawing minimal power, and the aluminum housing is weatherproof because we all know when the stuff hits the fan, the weather will turn south.
The unit is pre-wired and comes with the necessary mounting hardware, so just pick a point and go to town. Applications include vehicles, ATVs, boats, heavy equipment, yards and really anywhere you might need lots of light at the flick of a switch. The pedestal mount is easily adustable for the perfect angle, and even cooler is an available magnetic mount that lets you slap it anywhere there's metal, at which point the dark will be afraid of you.
