Swivel LED lamp - recommended buy from Aldi

I just bought a rotating LED lamp from Aldi, £5.99. It allows you to place it or wedge it, then swivel the lamp to shine at what you are looking at. It is an advantage over most work lamps. Just the job when in the footwell looking for fuses, relays, fixing the speedo connections, etc.

That’s cheap. Is it battery or rechargeable?

It uses 4 AAA batteries, so not re-chargeable. But since you can get a pack of dozens of batteries in a £ shop these days, I don't consider that a problem. LEDs have low power consumption, so battery life is likely to be OK.

While on the subject of ALDI. Look at this utterly RIDICULOUS recall:

Aldi
Peanuts
Aldi is recalling its Clancy’s Barbecue Flavour Coated Peanuts because they contain cashew nuts, which are undeclared on the label.
The supermarket is urgently warning customers not to consume the snacks.
The product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to nuts.
The affected product was only available in three regional areas (Neston, Darlington and Goldthorpe).
If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to nuts, do not eat it.
Instead return it to the store from where it was bought.
Aldi is recalling the above product from customers.
The company is also issuing a point-of-sale notice to its customers.
These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled.


As if anyone with a nut allergy would have bought a product labelled "PEANUTS" in the first place.

The world has officially gone mad.
