Why is good lighting important for DIY?


The right lighting plays a crucial role in DIY, handicrafts and screwdriving. Work lights are not only a practical tool, but also an indispensable companion for a successful DIY project. They make work easier and reduce the risk of injury. The following aspects should not be underestimated:

  • Avoid accidents: Dark corners and shadows can lead to accidents by causing tripping hazards or increasing the risk of cuts and injuries. Suitable work lights ensure even illumination and thus significantly minimize the risk of injury. They enable DIY enthusiasts to see their surroundings clearly and avoid potential hazards. They are therefore indispensable for DIY safety.

  • Improving visibility and accuracy: Work lights increase the visibility of details and fine lines, which is particularly crucial for precise work such as sawing, sanding or painting. With a clear view, DIYers can better plan and execute their projects, leading to more professional results. Good lighting therefore not only improves safety, but also accuracy and efficiency.

  • Reducing eye strain and fatigue: Working for hours in poorly lit rooms can lead to eye strain and fatigue, which can affect your productivity and well-being. Task lights help to reduce this strain by providing bright and even lighting that reduces eye strain. By avoiding glare and flickering, they allow DIYers to work longer and more comfortably without tiring their eyes. Good lighting is therefore not just a luxury, but an essential part of any DIY project.

What types of work lamps are there?


As diverse as DIY projects can be, the requirements for suitable lighting are just as varied. If you are carrying out manual work on a workbench, you need a different light than if you are sanding floorboards. The selection of work lights is correspondingly large.

Multifunction lamps


Multifunctional lamps with interchangeable attachments such as our Workers Friend are hard to beat in terms of versatility. It is a flashlight, assembly lamp, gooseneck lamp and inspection lamp all in one. The individual attachments can simply be placed on the base handle and can be exchanged as required. Ideal for changing requirements and areas of application. It comes in an attractive box and also makes a great gift for DIY enthusiasts.

Work lights

No toolbox should be without a decent work light. However, it is difficult to hold a flashlight in your hand and work on a project at the same time. For this reason, our handy work lights can be positioned using a clip, hook, magnet or stand, depending on the model. This means they illuminate your work environment perfectly and you still have your hands free. They are just as handy as a compact flashlight. Depending on the model, they also have a combination of flood and spot light, which enables both wide close-range illumination and spot lighting or the illumination of distant areas.

Our torches and headlamps are available in Core, Work and Signature versions. With a Core model, you are well equipped for everyday use. If you are looking for a particularly robust lamp, the Work version is the right one for you. And if you prefer extra power, additional functions and an elegant design, you are sure to find the right light in our Signature models.

What should you look out for when choosing a work light?


First consider whether you need focused lighting for precise work or large-area illumination for extensive projects. Depending on whether you are working on a small workbench project or renovating an entire room, the ideal light may vary. You get focused lighting with our headlamps and flashlights. The W-series work lights are the perfect companion for illuminating your work area, while our area lights are ideal for large-scale and powerful illumination of entire rooms or floors.

Other important features to look out for when choosing a lamp for DIY projects are as follows:

  • Suitable luminous flux for your purpose: The right illumination of your workspace is crucial for good work results. The brighter the better is simply not true. The light should be adapted to the conditions. For DIY enthusiasts working at a workbench, the illumination of the close-up area is particularly important. In most cases, you only need a few hundred lumens for this. Our work lights with a luminous flux of up to 600 lm provide optimum and widely distributed light. 

    However, you should bear in mind that a multifunctional lamp can cover many application situations and that higher luminous intensities are sometimes required. Our small area lights AF2R Work with up to 1000 lm and AF4R Work with up to 2000 lm are very versatile. Thanks to the 5 selectable levels, they combine the advantages of work lights in terms of portability and multifunctionality with the lighting power of construction floodlights to illuminate entire rooms. And if entire outdoor construction sites need to be illuminated, then there is no way around the AF12 performance spotlights. With a breathtaking 8000 lm, they offer maximum lighting power and turn night into day. 

  • Perfect light image: "A lamp must shine!" - Although this is a basic requirement, you will realize just how important the light image is when you see the difference. At Ledlenser, we place particular emphasis on a balanced and homogeneous light image free of shadows, color gradients and irregularities. Perfect light always results from the combination of LED and the corresponding optics.

  • Flexibility and adjustability: A flexible and adjustable work light allows you to position and direct the light as required. Lights with swivel heads, adjustable feet or flexible brackets allow you to position the light beam exactly where you need it. You can find suitable lamps in our Work series, for example.

  • Robustness and durability: As work lights are often used in demanding environments, it is important that they are robust and durable. Therefore, opt for a lamp made of high-quality materials and a solid construction that can withstand daily wear and tear. A robust work light will serve you faithfully for many projects. The Ledlenser lamps from the Work range are designed for extreme conditions in trade and industry in terms of break resistance, water and dust protection and chemical resistance.

  • Additional functions: Some work lights offer additional functions such as an adjustable color temperature or UV light for leak detection, for example. You are guaranteed to find the work light in the Ledlenser portfolio that is tailored to your needs and requirements.
