I do HVAC work both service and installs. Soooo spend a lot of time in attics running copper overhead, sealing up ducts, and working on airhandlers in attics. Like every other AC guy I've tried every type of head light, flashlight, and work light u can imagine. All have their draw backs...too big, not bright enough, flashlights take a hand to hold that I need for tools and mastic, heats up attic (500w halogen flood lights)....sooo I was thinking. Since I own a bunch of Ridgid 18V tools....why not ask u all to make a miners type head light....with a belt mounted battery holder. I'm not an electrical engineer but seems too me that the 18v ni-cads should be able to power a boat load of LED bulbs....for a long time.....sooo for example 20 or 30 white LED bulbs mounted in a miners type head light should light up an attic really well, and leave the hands free to do the hippo in the attic, rafter to rafter walk or crawl.
No announcement yet.
Head Light...18V LED would be nice.
