Whick LED work light.

I'm going to start doing more work on my 99 528i and I wanted to get a good LED work light that will light up the engine compartment. I looked at this from Walmart.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks

I have a Snap On I have had for a few years, they are bright and work well. I bought a Black and Decker and didn't open it for a year or so....when I finally did recently, the damn batteries barely hold a charge, thus the thing is dim from the get go. If I leave it plugged in, it is hell for bright...just messin; with me with how it SHOULD work.

Yes, this Snap On is bright. I'm not sure how long it will last so we'll see.
