If you’re looking for a work light for your electrical home improvement projects or to light up your campsite, then check out my real life Sanlinkee LED Rechargeable Work Light Review.
As I mentioned on my “About” page, the focus of this blog is to help other families. One way I do this is by writing reviews about products that I actually use and like, I generally don’t spend any time on products I’ve had a bad experience with. Sometimes I have to buy several brands of a particular product until I find one I like, which is time consuming and frustrating, so hopefully I help save you valuable time by sharing with you products that work for me.

I had two problems to solve. First, I needed a very bright portable battery operated directional light for my electrical home improvement projects because I turn off the power in the area where I’m working. Second, camping lanterns are great for lighting the picnic table for camping dinners and providing light so you can see the ground when you’re walking around your campsite, but I noticed they were inadequate for outdoor night time cooking because you need to see how the food is cooking and when it is ready to remove from the stove.
You could have someone stand next to you holding a powerful flash light, but my kids and wife get bored fast, so this wasn’t an option for me. So, I did some research online and learned about work lights. I don’t work in the construction industry, so I was not aware of work lights. Work lights are typically high powered and very bright lights that construction workers use to light up an area at night (similar to daylight) so they can work on construction projects at night.
Battery and light technology haver improved so much over the years, there are now some relatively affordable and effective battery powered work lights on the market. Through my research I came across Sanlinkee LED Rechargeable Work Lights. You never know if positive reviews are correct or fake, so it’s trail and error when finding something new. Luckily, I didn’t have to buy several brands, the Sanlinkee LED Rechargeable Work Light worked great for my needs, it’s very powerful and feels well built. I actually purchased several for camping and home use.

Below are some pictures where I used the Sanlinkee LED Rechargeable Work Lights for a home improvement project where I was converting my light fixtures from fluorescent to LED. I even placed the Sanlinkee LED Rechargeable Work Light on the hood of my car because it had soft rubber on the stand and base so it would not damage my car hood paint.
Below are pictures and video of camp cooking. In the video, first you see how effective the camping lantern is while cooking at night, then I turn on the Sanlinkee LED Rechargeable Work Light…big difference. And, I used a lantern stand to hang the Sanlinkee LED Rechargeable Work Light on.
So, the Sanlinkee LED Rechargeable Work Light has worked out great for me. It provides a lot of light, batteries seem to last a while (I haven’t tested the actual run time, but I’ve never run out before finishing my tasks), lightweight, easy to position, etc. I would recommend without reservation.
