Nice light, but not ready for real work
By Ken Ficara
It's a great idea, and works well in most respects -- magnets are strong, lights are bright, stands on its own as shown. But for a work light it's sadly fragile. I dropped it about five feet onto a wood floor and it stopped working. The positive contact for the bottom battery had broken off. I replaced it with a bit of epoxy but come on. I've dropped my good old $5 work light more times than I can remember and at worst the bulb broke.
And while we're on the subject of batteries, it's worth mentioning that this uses three AA batteries in a triangular configuration. Two on the top, and a third below (which is the one whose contact broke). That battery has no strap or other method of removing it. While you have the epoxy out, cut a short strip of cloth or plastic and affix it as a battery lifter. This will save you a torn fingernail or two.

Great Quality..... Great Light... Great Magnet. :)
By Bob D
It sure pays to spend a little more. This is a very high quality work light. It is very bright and the magnet is very strong. It sticks so good - even horizontally. And it stands on any flat surface with the light at many angles. I'm glad I spent a few dollars extra for one of such good quality. A very good buy....

OK not as bright as NEBO WorkBrite.
By Grey Day
Light arrived with two batteries installed (needs 3?) so out box not impressed. I also ordered a NEBO Workbrite at same time.
I like the feel of the Cliplite and the proportions seem better than the NEBO. It is not as bright as the NEBO light and the Flashlight function is also not as bright as the NEBO. To summarize: its OK but not worth money... I also bought and will review the NEBO on Amazon and I prefer the NEBO for the money.....
