Default Budget priced pit light

I've been looking for a high quality pit light for a while now. At Saturday's race, I noticed one that threw a lot of light and I talked to the owner. It's a Tenergy 11W LED lamp that is dimmable and has a built-in USB charging port. Only $24.99 through many retailers on the net. I ordered one. I'm glad I held off until I found one with the dimensions and features I wanted at a price that I thought was reasonable.

I ended up building my own as no light gave off enough light. It was more than $24 but less than the typical branded RC pit light.

Not near it to measure but extended i would guess about 20-24". Folds up fairly compact so it is easy to pack in a bin.

I use an Ikea clip on LED light with a goose neck. $13 cant beat that. I clip it on the shock tower, car stand. Anywhere because its super light. And its so small you can coil it up and doesn"t need a big space in my hauler bag

I might have to try that. My hauler has been getting too heavy

My buddy got one of these of Amazon, it is Very nice, very bright.
I got a smaller fold up one of Ebay and its ok, but too small, Think I might need to upgrade.
