From time to time I find myself in situations where I need a light that isn’t plugged in. Sometimes it’s at night, when I’m trying to track a pest in the backyard. Sometimes it’s in my garage under the chassis of my car. Sometimes it’s at a campsite, when I’m trying not to trip over myself on the way to the showerhouse in the predawn hours.
Aldi makes a number of portable lights that it sells throughout the year, including indoor lights and camping lights. Aldi also sometimes sells traditional flashlights. The grocer sells these lights under various labels — Easy Home, Adventuridge, Lightway — but it also sells one particular light under its WORKZONE tool brand.
What We Know:
The WORKZONE Rechargeable LED Work Light (Product Code: 803560) is an Aldi Find, which means it’s in stores only for a limited time. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. At the time of this post the light is $19.99. That price is in the range of work lights I’ve seen online, which are sometimes less expensive per light but may also require you to buy them in a 2-pack.
According to Aldi, the light’s features include:
- Three brightness levels: 2000, 1000 and 500 Lumen
- A USB Power Bank function, allowing it to double as battery for charging other devices
- 180° swivel function
- Rubber trim for shock and impact resistance
- “Superstrong” magnet design
- Charging level indicator
- Operating time (when battery is fully charged) of approximately 2 hours at 100%, approximately 4 hours at 50% or approximately 8 hours at 5%
According to Aldi, the light includes a a USB charging cable, socket adapter, and suspension hook.
We haven’t tried out this model, so we can’t speak to how it works. We also can’t speak to durability, although there are a lot of features packed into this light. Our goal with open thread posts like this is to offer a space for people to share about their experiences with a product.
