LED news and insight from our technology editor Steve Bush, who has been messing with LED lighting for more years than he would care to remember.
Spanners with built in LED lighting
LED Luminaries always keeps an eye out for innovative or curious uses of LEDs, and how about this one?…
Ever been working tightening nuts and bolts, but had difficulty seeing what you were doing? Maybe working under a car bonnet in a darkened garage… Well, these spanners come with built in LED lighting. And they are rechargeable, apparently.
“This wrench set has LED lights built into the wrenches, writes Technabob.
“This means that you will always have light where and when you need it. They even have high and low beam settings. The set of seven open-ended wrenches will cost you $99.95 (USD) from Hammacher Schlemmer. Sure, it’s pricey, but it will make your job a lot easier. Darkness will never come between you and your nuts again.”
Hmmm. What do you think? A neat idea, potentially, but I’m not sure this isn’t a solution looking for a problem…
