Streamlight, Inc. is now selling its Syclone Jr. Light, a compact rechargeable area work light that is ideal for tight spaces and hard to reach nooks. The Syclone Jr. uses a bright white LED beam with two brightness settings. The flashlight is rechargeable via a micro USB cord and can rotate 360 degrees around its base, which is magnetic in order to attach to adjacent metal work surfaces. If it’s not possible to use the base, a hanging hook is also available, increasing it's utility as a work light.

Dineen. “First responders, auto technicians, industrial workers and DIYers alike will reach for it whenever they need a task light that can stand on its own, attach to metal surfaces, or function as a hanging light. And because it uses a USB rechargeable battery, it offers among the lowest operating costs of any area light of its type and size.”
