The Prometheus Task Master Mini is a compact high-CRI LED worklight with magnetic base and gooseneck-style adjustable arm.
There are two versions, one with a single head, and one with a dual head.
Both models feature a Soraa GU10 bulb that delivers 90+ CRI illumination at a 3000K (warm white) color temperature. The bulb delivers 600 lumens brightness.
You can adjust the beam angle, thanks to the Soraa Snap System. The Snap System works with magnetic modifier attachments that can be used to create beam angles of 36°, 25°, or 10°.
According to Prometheus Lights, the Task Master Mini improves upon the original Task Master, with a “lightweight head [that] offers virtually unlimited positioning options.”
The adjustable arm features 3/4″ Loc-Line modular hose system segments for strength and resistance to common chemicals.
Each Task Master Mini has a “massively strong” magnetic base with rubber boot. The base and bulb socket are 3D printed in-house by Prometheus Lights.
Prometheus adds that the lights are not self-standing and must be attached to “something steel.” Off the top of my head, I think that the Panavise weighted base (~$30 at Amazon) might be suitable.
A toggle switch gives users quick on/off control.
The 6-foot power cord is “custom made for this application.” It’s described as being “industrial grade with no expense spared,” with the cord strain relief (but not the bulb) sealed against liquid and dust intrusion.
The toggle switch – made by Honeywell – is sealed with a APM Hexseal boot.
At a distance of 1 foot, the Task Master Mini delivers from 13,000 (36°) to 75,000 (10°) lux. Prometheus Lights has a handy distance vs lux chart on their website.
It looks like the native beam angle is 10°, with magnetic modifiers used to achieve 25° and 36° beam angles.
The single and dual Task Master Mini lights operate on 110V AC.
Price: $295 for the single, $355 for the dual head model
No, I didn’t miss a decimal point somewhere; these are very expensive compact worklights.
The owner of the company wanted “a great LED task light,” but couldn’t find what he was looking for, and so he designed and built his own.
I’d say that these lights are for very demanding users who have deep pockets or specific needs that justify the expense.
Personally, I think this could serve as great DIY project inspiration.
Prometheus also has a small articulating arm accessory for use with their Beta AAA LED flashlights. It comes with a magnetic base, Loc-Line segments (likely 1/4″ system), and a brass fitting for connecting to Beta flashlights with QRV2 quick release end sockets.
The arm is 7″ long, not including the length of the flashlight.
Price: $35, $74 with a flashlight
