What is it?
Sealey are one of the largest tool manufacturer here in the UK used by both the trade and home users. We wanted to see what their inspection light offering has so we put the Sealey LED 360G Inspection Light to the test.
First thing you noticed about the inspection light is its lime green appearance – certainly one you're not going to lose very easily in the workshop. The light has a 360G twist action as well as a tilt allowing you to get it in virtually any position.
The inspection light has both a top torch and a main light area - The main light puts out 400 lumens with 10 bright SMD LEDS and the top torch puts out 120 lumens. It also features a 2.2Ah lithium-ion battery meaning that you should be able to use it for around 3-6 hours without needing to charge it depenent on how high you have the light.
The base is manufactured with an integrated magnet and two swivel hanging hooks allowing for hands free use. The inspection light is also IP54 meaning it's splash and dust proof. It comes with a USB charger, a mains adapter and an in-car adapter so you can charge both in the garage and on the move.
You can pick up this inspection light for around £40 and is available from a number of different retailers.
How we tested it?
As with all inspection lights we test it in a dark unit in an engine bay to test its brightness, ability to get into different areas and ability to use handsfree. All inspection lights are fully charged prior to testing.
We didn’t like:
Overall a very good inspection light, it really does feel like a quality product from a well-known manufacturer - it's not the brightest we've tested, nor the cheapest but it's a solid light and will certainly do the job.
