What Is The Best LED Shop Light?

26 Jan , 2022

What’s The Best LED Light For My Shop?

It’s an age-old question that’s intrigued countless craftsmen, foremen, and workshop owners for decades. It’s also very much a myth. That’s because what’s best for one person may not be what’s best for all, and you’re unlikely to find an LED that’s better than all others, in every conceivable way.

In truth, the best LED shop light is the one that best meets your shop’s needs. Whether it’s a shatterproof shop light or a waterproof wall pack, a 4-lamp strip light or a 6-lamp highbay, the best light is what works for you.

With that in mind, here are five of a few of our very best LED shop lights—each grouped by a particular feature that makes them useful in their own unique way. Here’s to you finding the absolute best LED shop light for your needs!

5 LED Shop Lights Guaranteed to Deliver

Vaportight LED Shop Lights

In search of a shop light that can withstand harsh environments filled with dust, dirt, or moisture?

Not only does it provide bright, high-output light that’s energy-efficient, but is guaranteed to keep weather, dust, bugs, and vapors out.

Moreover, its LED tubes have their own internal drivers, so you’ll never have to worry about external drivers or ballasts, and you’ll never need to change anything inside the fixture either. And with a 5 year on the complete fixture and the LED tubes, they’re a foolproof way to provide light in even the toughest of workshop environments.
