Shed Some Light on the Subject
The boneheads who market headlamps always go after spelunkers, campers and rock climbers. Why don’t they realize that for every one of those guys, there are about 1,000 of us DIYers and tradesmen who need them too?
But don't buy one of those dim, battery-eating lightbulb headlamps. Get one that sports an LED bulb, preferably with a dimmer switch because the batteries will last for dozens of hours if you’re judicious with the dimmer. Try one and you’ll be strapping it on every time you go into the attic, crawl space, under the car—anywhere that light is an issue.
Think about it. No more propping up flashlights, no broken trouble lightbulbs, no shadows—none of those hassles. Wherever you look, there’s good light right where you need it. You’ll find headlamps at any camping or sporting goods store, or search online for “LED headlamp.”
