When the light is on the low switch, what is the wattage? When it is on high, is the lighting diffused or is a "spot" lighting? I'm hoping the high setting will provide a work light, but the low switch will give ambiance lighting.
The WAC Lighting BA-LIX-2 will provide adequate light in a work situation, a lot of the light is going to depend on the surface that it is pointing at. This light is not a spot light; it is very different from a spot light.
