Sunex Tools Underhood LED Light Video Review [1000 Lumens]
While at the SEMA Show 2019 in November, we made our normal stopover at the Sunex Tools booth. In addition to their toolboxes, New Pinup Series, and floor jacks, the new Sunex Underhood LED Light really caught our attention. It’s light (not heavy), has a great light output and it doesn’t break the bank.
Sunex Tools Underhood LED Light Features
The actual model number is REDLUH, which we’re assuming has something to do with Light and Underhood. This is a very simple light that just does the job. One button takes care of everything. Push the button once and the Underhood LED light turns on High, hence 1,000 lumens of light output. Push the button again and the LED light changes to Low (600 lumens), push again and the light turns off. An included USB (type C) cord charges the onboard battery that powers the LED on High for 3-1/2 hours.
This Sunex LED Light is built on a spring-loaded aluminum chassis, and molded plastic hooks swivel on each end. The ends stretch out to a full 69-inches, which will fit most hoods, including full-size truck hoods. Foam-rubber liners on the inside of the hooks protect the vehicle’s finish from any scuffs. The hooks on each end rotate 360-degrees allowing the light to be oriented just about any direction. One note is that the frame is only spring-loaded on one side, so when it’s stretched out, the LED light is to one side. Even though you can see the offset, we really didn’t notice any issue with the light output.
We were pretty impressed with the Sunex Underhood LED Light. It definitely puts out enough light for working under, it’s very functional and easy to use. Most of all, the price point really sets this Sunex REDLUH light apart from the rest. We’ve seen this light for less than $100 online. Purchasing other comparable lights from tool trucks and power-tool brands may cost you north of $300 with battery and charger. Check out the Sunex Tools REDLUH Underhood LED Light.
