McGill, Rosemont, Ill., offers the Handi-Light and Battery Combo Pack, which delivers portable, super-bright lighting for up to five hours continuously. The light offers a replaceable 13-watt, 12-volt twin-tube fluorescent lamp and a solid-state ballast protected against voltage surges up to 18 volts. A single metal hook allows for the light to hang on a user's belt or shoulder strap for hands-free operation, while the impact-resistant polycarbonate outer tube assures a long service life. Customers have the choice of either a 20-foot yellow cord or a 1-foot to 5-foot coil cord. Both have a male lighter plug to connect with the battery pack, which weighs only 5.75 pounds to minimize operator fatigue. It comes furnished with a detachable charger, a nylon battery case and belt, along with a 60-inch shoulder strap.
