Garage lights..... again!

There are plenty of threads about garage lights but I've not quite found what I'm looking for. I'm after lights like these .....



I want to have 2 lights mounted high that are angled like the ones in this pic and a bar across the middle of the wall like the one on the left of the pic. It seems that LED is the way forward. What wattage should I be using? Has anyone bought any or similar that they can recommend? I'd also like something portable to use. If you were only putting in 1 LED strip in the ceiling what size and wattage would you recommend?

Thanks

Have a look at these in screwfix. If you're mounting several, go for 30w. https://www.screwfix.com/p/brackenhe...0w-white/8137h

As regards strip lights, I fitted two if these I'm my mother's garage. The light is fantastic.

I think he has simply used outdoor floodlights fitted with cool white bulbs.

There is a very similar one outside my house.

I've ordered this https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N9R97...740111_TE_item
Which is 50W, 6400k daylight 5ft.

And bought 2 of these
https://www.screwfix.com/p/lap-sliml...0w-black/3739v
30W, 4000k Which is just pretty much the black version of what cookies recommended.

And then saw this which I got as a cordless hand held
https://www.screwfix.com/p/diall-led...-12-240v/7042k
Which is 23W, 6000k. And importantly since it's rechargeable then there's no cable to be dragged around.

Hopefully the difference in Kelvin will mean I can spot any issues easier in differing light.
