I'm 62 and while my vision is corrected to 20/20, I seem to need more light every year. I have a pair of 1500 watt halogen lights. I keep one up high pointed down into the engine bay and the other is on a tripod. They are great during Ohio winters but this is the 2nd 90 degree day (fahrenheit) in a row and they are just too much in my tiny garage. Does anyone have a tough, bright, inexpensive, LED solution that they would recommend? Even better if I can just swap them onto the old tripods in summer.

At 55 with the A.G.E. virus kicking in I'm also starting to need more light :)
I wonder if you could replace your bulbs with some of these though they may not be as bright LED tube

Thank you! I had no idea they made an LED replacement for them. It's worth trying.

These days if you can wonder if something has been made it usually has :) I had to look it up first :D
