Editor's Notes

January 23, 2019:

We noticed something very funny when searching for the best waterproof spotlights — many of the models marketed as such, actually aren't. Instead a lot of companies try and pass off water-resistant models to unsuspecting buyers. We spent a lot of time thoroughly researching ever item on this list to ensure you never wind up making that mistake. All of these are submersible to a minimum of three feet deep.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
