At $(removed) for two, this Magnetic Clip Light with 8 Super Bright White LEDs is a good deal. I used one over the weekend for illumination while I was repairing a Wii-U controller charger cord that one of our cats chewed through. (I also covered the cord with split-loom tubing to protect my cats and the cord from now on.)
It has a magnet in the clip so you can attach it to a metal surface, and it stands upright on a table (though it is easy to knock over because it has a high center of gravity). It uses 3 AAA batteries (not included).
