RcMarket, that light is rechargable, right?

I may explain what I prefer :

Bright (like the Ott light (some of my friends have it))
Small size (I have a bit tight of space in my bag, so it should as small as possible)
Good looking (saw that the Orion and MuchMore lamp is made of aluminium

That the lamp only has 12v is a minus, so I'd prefer what Orion is offering...
Is the Orion and MuchMore lamp of the same size?

Please, if you know other pit lamps, don't hesitate to show 'em

The Orion and the MuchMore lamps are about the same size, the Orion has 3 LED'S, the MM has 20 or 25 somthing like that....... much brighter. I have an Ott, it outshines them both. pun intended.

So you recommend the Ott light even if it's a bit bigger than the MuchMore and Orion?

I have the Ott on my workbench at home.
Take the MM to the track, the less I have to carry the better.

A friend of mine has the ORION light, and it puts out a similar shine to my MM, it's not the amount of LED that makes the difference.

I like the Ott, but the the replacement bulbs are spendy. You can buy an Orion for just a few bucks more than the bulb...... that is my only negitive about the Ott. LED lights should last forever, something like 100,000 hours. Having said that LED lamps don't seem to iluminate as large of an area, LED is very directional. Flouesent bulbs are very fragile and don't stand up if not packed well. Each have their Pros and Cons.

I feel that size does not matter.

Is it really common that the flousent bulbs get damaged during transportation, or just if you're really unlucky? I mean, do you have to buy new bulbs every now and then?

The lifetime of the bulb in general shouldn't be a big problem, I mean, flousent bulbs do still last about 10,000 hours

It feels like the Ott lite is a better choice, I mean, if you by a pit lamp, you want it to be bright, and if the led lamps ain't bright enough then there's no point bying them Or have I missed something now?
