Best for Around the House

LED LENSER P7.2

From the same folks who brought us Leatherman knives and tools – no surprise – this handheld light is versatile. It's small enough to stash away in a junk drawer, but packs enough pop (320 lumens) to light up gloomy crawl spaces and odd jobs, especially with its one-hand-friendly features: With our right hand busy adjusting wiring, we could still switch between the high and low settings, and, with the other paw, adjusted the beam's focus.
