Home Depot 110v flourescent trouble lite - also halogen
I use110V work lights around the house but every second time I go to use one I manage to give it a little bump and the filament in the bulb goes. A real PITA. The last thing I need on the boat.
From my aircraft mechanic friend, I use a flourescent tube style work lite. It has soft rubber ends and an unbreakable soft tube lens and hook for hanging. Never gets hot so you can lay it down anywhere or place it in tight quarters by your cheekbone. You can throw it or drop it. Lite is omni direction but a little less lumens than a 100W trouble lite. Usually I use both types in conjunction.
Doing maintenance to really lite up a whole cabin or engine room nothing beats those 200 W clamp-on worklite halogens.
Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
