Rally De­sign’s back-to-the-1990s replica of a mo­bile phone might look a lit­tle dated, but it’s the cheap­est of our recharge­able in­spec­tion lamps on test and does the job. It has 30 of the older de­sign of LEDS, with two il­lu­mi­na­tion set­tings that can last for up to four hours from a 3.6-volt 1.2Ah in­built battery that takes 3-4 hours to recharge via a dock­ing sta­tion. With a cou­ple of mag­nets on the back of the lamp and a metal fold-out stand, the lamp can be se­cured to an in­ner wing or whee­larch, but it’s less ver­sa­tile when work­ing un­der­neath a car and it’s quite bulky. When folded up, how­ever, it can be slot­ted into a pocket, and you can fool peo­ple into think­ing it’s a retro mo­bile phone. This may not be the bright­est of the bunch, but it is the cheap­est.
