Lol, barbaric or not, it’s a handy dandy little light.I have to admit I was disappointed with the "magnet light". No fault of the light but when I heard it described that way, my mind, which is always running Physics theory in the background, immediately thought; "somebody made a light that is powered by magnets on the spinning lathe chuck!!!!" Yep, disappointed. Does look like a cool light but I'll never be able to look at it the same again with that, cord & plug, hanging off it. Simply barbaric.
