Overall Auto Express Rating

3.0 out of 5

Best price: £35.25

Although this is an upgrade to the Draper 24367 featured in our last test, the design has been around for a few years now. Its 100-lumen output burns surprisingly bright, but mainly because the beam pattern is compromised: it’s centre heavy with poor peripheral illumination by today’s standards. It’s not bad, but not the best. Still, there’s plenty to like here, including the assortment of rear-mounted hooks and magnets – there’s a strong one in the base – and the front-to-back flexi joint between the base and the lamp body. All of this helps you to aim the beam exactly where you need it.
