Weber Q Handle Light

So a falling tree limb took out the arbor over my egg a few weeks ago. I had a nice light built into the arbor so I could see my egg in the dark. Thats gone now too. So today at work I grabbed a Weber Q Handle Light. It fits under the large egg handle perfectly, and shines right down on the food. Even has an auto shutoff when you close the lid.

    I rather like that! I can usually be found with a flashlight under my arm. :blush:

    instead of a flashlight under my arm like you I took an old hard hat and mounted this intense light that has 7 LED bulbs. It's amazingly bright and very lightweight by only using 2 AAA batteries. Works for me!

    BTW my first one bit the dust after 8 years, but it was heavy and used 4 AA batteries and wasn't nearly as bright!

    I have one. It worked good for awhile but has been kind of flaky lately.
  • Is the Weber Q bright enough to be worth it? I've seen some pretty weak LED lights out there even though the technology has come a long way in recent years. I'm a big fan of the Coast LED Lenser flashlights and headlamps. They're expensive but they are super bright. Wish they would make a BBQ light. I've been using one of the LED BBQ lights that Lowe's sells and I've been looking to upgrade. The fit and function of the Weber Q light might be enough for me to buy one even if the lighting is marginal.

    I like the hardhat idea, just not a fan of coal miner gear, LOL. Great idea though.

    Gives off some pretty good light.

    Can anyone tell me which model # the light is? Is it a 6503 Q handle.

    I used the 6503 for the photos above, but from my understanding, this doesn't work with the new handles.

    As @cazzy notes, it won't fit with the new wide-spread handles.  That said, I just installed one (6503) on a SBGE ( purchased 8/14).  I don't know if I got an antique old one or just the current SBGE handle hasn't changed.  BTW-I have had one on a mature LBGE for a while-great accessory.   Good luck.
    And @Fred19Flintstone will not approve of this timely post.  FWIW-

    Beats me, man. This thread is FIVE years old! I have graduated to holding the flashlight in my mouth. Works pretty well, btw.
