 Whether you are a DIY-er or a professional, when you are working on a car or bike, doing HVAC, electrical or plumbing work, there are often times when you need both of your hands to complete your work, but need the assitance of a flashlight to see what you are doing as well.

The new LightStar 80 from TerraLUX is the ideal LED flashlight for jobs in tight spaces and those that require the use of both of your hands. The flashlight features a rubber BiteGrip so you never have to scrape your teeth on a metal handle again when you¹re trying to multi-task by using your mouth as a third hand, and the light only weighs 2.4 ounces despite its powerful 80 lumen output.

Made from airplane grade aluminum, it has a 5-hour battery life run time and comes with 2AAA alkaline batteries and a reversible pocket clip. The LightStar 80 is available in titanium grey or high visibility orange and has an MSRP of $29.99.

 We recently tested the TerraLUX LightStar 80 LED flashlight, and it is awesome! The rubber BiteGrip is by far the most amazing feature, allowing hands-free operation while working on a car.

Not to slight the light itself, though, as the tiny LED is plenty bright, even if to use at night on the roadside.

And it's light. You'd think a light of this size would be too heavy to hold in your mouth, but it's not too heavy, surprisingly.

And to add convenience, it has a strong incorporated pocket clip.
