Review for Wiha LED Work Light by Mitie (Mobile Electrician)
3rd January 2022

I was fortunate to win one of these from the group, it fits very nicely in my TP-XXL in one of the tool pouches, for the size of the work light it gives out a great light which lights up a room very easily, the magnetic adjustable bracket allows for very easy positioning what ever the situation.

Review for Wiha LED Work Light by Keynston Services

Got one of these on spec, and it's turned out to be a winner. Lightweight, small, hinged bracket with magnets for attaching to convenient steelwork. Two light levels (both are more than adequate) and it can be used on the lower setting while charging (from a micro USB cable). I keep a USB powerpack & cable in the can, to charge this occasionally or run a radio or tablet.

Brace yourself it's JakesMakes in association with Tool Talk TV. You may have noticed I'm wearing a hat. Why am I wearing a hat? Because it's cold. Why is it cold? Because it's winter. You know what else that means, it's dark outside. Any tradesman will know that if you want to do a good quality job, you need to be able to see what you're doing. And if it's dark outside, you can't see what you're doing. That's why is important that you have a good quality task light in your tool kit. Now today, Tool Talk TV have sent me the Wiha task light to review. Okay let's open it up and see what it's about.

Right. First thing I notice is just how thin it is, it's real, real thin. I mean, I could probably put this in my pocket. Easily. I could carry that around, freeing up an extra hand. It's got these strengthening bars either side as well. It looks like it's well-made. On the back we've got the on button and also the bit where you charge it. And you've got this stand here, which can prop it up to give it a sort of an angle. And also on the back of the stand we've got these three magnets. So, if there's something metal nearby, you can easily attach it. Just try attaching it to my radiator? Yeah.

Okay, that was an exaggeration, but they are really good strong. So after reading the instructions, it seems like this task light has two settings, a high and a low. The low setting comes in at 400 lumens, and that will last you around seven hours of use. Now the high setting, that is quite a bit higher, it's 1,280 lumens, and that will last about two hours on a full charge.

Well what are we waiting for? Let's turn it on. That's the low setting. That is quite bright. And now the high setting. Whoa. Good job I've got my shades. Wow that is seriously bright. It's about seven o'clock in the morning at the moment, so let's take it outside and see what it looks like in the darkness.

All right, just heading out to the back door. Oh Jesus. It is pitch black out here at the moment. Don't know if you can see much, it is dark. You can just about see the moon. Wow. That's some high intensity. Just look at that. Let's turn it off. Obviously can't see nothing. Then we got low intensity. Still pretty good. Still got good visibility, and then, full brightness. Wow. Right, I'm going to go inside because I am absolutely freezing.

It's cold out there. Ah, hot. Ow. Right, so what else have we got then?

And it's that time again, time to read the instructions. And upon reading, I've learned the task light is meant to be drop proof up to 2.1 metres. Dustproof, and waterproof. And the task light looks like it survived. Still working though. Good. All right let's give it a clean.

Okay so the task light has taken a bit of a beating, but it still works. Beautiful. So the next step is I'm going to fully charge it up, and then I'm going to let it run out and see if the battery time is what Wiha claims it to be. So we're going to do that twice. We're going to do it once for the low setting and once for the high setting. So we're expecting, hopefully, the low setting to last seven hours and the high setting to last two hours.

So we've got it set up in my bedroom at 12:40, right, 12:41, if you want to be precise, which I don't. So we'll call it 12:40. Definitely needs some sort of background music. So it managed the last until 3:06. So about two hours and 25 minutes. And now we're set up in my unit. This one's a little bit longer, so I've managed to find some of that background music.

It's so weird, the second hand looks like it's going backwards in time. Spooky. I had to change the memory card three times to get all this footage. So I turned on the work light at about seven o'clock in the morning? And it went off just after three o'clock in the afternoon. So getting about eight hours of usage out of that.

Right, so that's the initial testing done. So now let's take it into the workplace and see how the Wiha task light performs.

Okay. So my first job was a consumer unit replacement and the task light coming into good use there. I've got it on the highest setting here, but to be honest, because I was working in a small environment, I probably only needed the lower setting, but this is a good example to show you how the magnets and the angled bracket can help you adjust the work light to any sort of situation.

It is dark in here. And here again, we can see we're getting full use out of the magnets. The fact that this task light is so light and the magnets are so strong, just make it so great for attaching to any metal steels. And you tend to come across this a lot in a lot of working environments, you'll see a lot of steels. So when you're doing this sort of work, a lot of first fix, these lights are just going to be so useful. And here we have the apprentice, Scott, showing how to use this light. Scott, you're famous now. Yeah, he's always wanted to be famous.

So I've been using the Wiha work light for the past two months and I really, really like it. It's small, lightweight, nice and thin. It's nice and bright. The battery lasts a decent amount of time. It's got some really useful magnets on the bottom here. It's a great work light.

Two issues that have noticed though, are if you charge the work light, you can still put it on, but it only comes on to about 10% of the brightness. It would be better if you could have that as close to a hundred percent as possible. Sometimes, people forget to charge things. Me, all the time. And also there's four LEDs on the back. This is fully charged at the moment, but when it goes down in charge, some of the LEDs start to turn off. Now that's good, apart from the fact it can be a little bit hard to distinguish between which are on and what are off. I'm not sure there's too much separation between each of the LEDs internally, so some of the light from the other LEDs just gets through the viewing little dots there. So it's just a minor, minor issue. But as a whole, this is a really, really good work light.

Thanks for watching guys, this has been my video of the Wiha work light. I hope you've enjoyed it. If you want to check out some of my other videos, head on down to YouTube and search JakesMakes. You can find videos of me making stuff, like the idiot button. Sometimes you have to just announce to the world you're an idiot. You've done some stupid, everyone knows it, you know it, so you just need to accept it and just say, "I'm an idiot". That's why it's important to have the idiot button, nearby if possible. Idiot. Oh, of course. I know I'm an idiot. And again, thanks for watching. See you next time.

Hello, guys. Today, I've got another tool from Tool Talk. Today, I've got the Wiha torch and this is great. Recently, I've been working on a building site. Obviously, there's not as many lights in the plots as you'd like and you need some light. And fortunately, it was all metal studded rooms. So, this has got three little magnets as you can see. And what I would do is I would mount that to the stud, turn the light on, and I could angle that towards me or away from me, because it is quite bright.

And it was perfect. I don't have any other torch apart from a couple of DeWalt ones that I do use occasionally, but they're quite bulky and big, whereas this fits perfectly in my tool bag. And as I said, I could fix that onto the stud and I could aim that to me or away from me, depending on where I was working. And it was great. It was absolutely spare. But I was quite surprised at how bright it really is.

I've never had any Wiha tools before, but I was quite impressed. It's got a nice red rubber moulding around the edge that would deflect some damage if you dropped it. And it's also got obviously the two silver grills at the front. I guess if you were to drop it, that's going to stop it from touching the actual screen, which is like a plastic. And it's also got a little thread there, so I'm guessing that you could put a hook on it of some sort.

But working on the site that I was on, it was perfect. As I said, for such a small little compact light, it does give out a lot of light. So, what's it say? Input five volts. Made in China obviously. What do you expect? But that doesn't mean that the quality is bad. This is plastic. The back is plastic as well, but to be honest, it's quite robust. Even there, if I'm just holding it like that, it does hold itself quite well.

And obviously installing air conditioning, I do quite a lot service work as well, so being able to stick this onto a condenser and then being able to rotate it down means that I'm able to get light from above, which is really handy. So, yeah, on the back of it, you've got a little micro USB port in there that you can charge. I had it running for about I would say 45 minutes and I only dropped by one little bar.

So, you can see there you've got the little indicators there. So, see, when it's going down in battery, it would just slowly drop down. And there is your on button. But with the magnets, it's perfect. The only thing that I would say would've been a bit nicer is if you were able to flip it around a bit more. This being quite fixed is sometimes not the easiest way to be able to get the light to face at you. If you're over in the corner, you could aim over like that, but it would be nice if you were able to have a bit more flexibility with this pivot, because there would be occasions where that wouldn't be enough.

And also if you don't have anything magnetic to stick to, it's not really going to be too great. It does rest itself quite nicely with the mount at the back, but obviously it means it's going to be on the floor. And if it's on the floor, you're not really going to get that much light. So, that's just something to bear in mind. If you work in a lot of studded houses with wood, it's probably not going to be the greatest solution, to be honest with you. Unless you were able to put some sort of fix to hold it in.

I'll show you how bright it is. I'll try not to blind you. So, as you can see, it is quite bright. So, you've got two different settings. So, that's on your brightest there. Off. So, you've your least bright, your brightest, and then you're off. As I said, it is extremely bright for what it is. I'm not quite sure how many lumens it is, but as I said, compared to a typical DeWalt torch, I'd probably say it's on par with that. And obviously, that's 18V.

So, this is doing pretty well for the batteries that are in it. It wouldn't last obviously as long as a batteried one, but I'd say it's just as powerful. So, if you're working in places like rises or plots on building sites, or just anywhere that's dark, that you can fix this onto the stud work with the magnets, you probably won't find any better. It is quite pricey. I think it's above £50, but for what you get, it's quite good.

As I said, I can fit this in my bag and not worry about it. Whereas a DeWalt torch, or a power torch, is quite big, bulky. And this is just nice and small. It can fit in somewhere quite compactly. So, I'll just show you completely what it's like with the light off. So, as you can see, that is pretty bright and then you can see all the way to the back of my shed there.

And that's only on the second from the brightest. So, there you go. Look, that is extremely bright. And it's a white LED. So, as I said, typically I would fix that to a bit of stud and just have this angle to and from where I'm working. But it's extremely bright. For the size of it, I don't think you could ask for more. And it's Wiha. It's the first Wiha tool that I've ever had and I think is great. I'd never heard of them before until now, but it's perfect. So, thanks Tool Talk. And yeah, really appreciate it. Great torch. Thanks, guys.
