Clip-On Dual Grill Light - Great tool that needs specific attention
Posted by Scotchloks on May 2nd 2017
This Charcoal Companion Clip-On Dual Grill light is a great grilling tool for grilling after sunset. With 4 AAA batteries there is plenty of light to see what you're doing on the grill. The clip fastens to many shapes and the gooseneck allows pointing the light where it is needed on the grill. I have purchased and used six of these lights 365 through rain and snow since 2011 (6 years). They have a fatal flaw, weather robustness. While they do tell you to bring it inside after grilling, who is going to do that with an armful of barbeque? The battery compartment is on the top of the base clip assembly, so it is subjected to rain water. The battery cover has a rubber seal that is not robust enough to keep water from seeping inside, corroding your batteries. I reduced that problem by taking a plastic sandwich bag, cutting a slit near the opening, and placing the bag over the battery box while directing the spring loaded clasp of the light base through the slit. Batteries are protected and the clip still grabs the mounting surface. The other weak part of the design are the LED connections to their circuit. Some of the LEDs will disconnect from the power connections over time, typically one at a time. This is the same light that was marketed by Steven Raichlen, the "Best of Barbeque" guy, and is now discontinued. If you can keep it going it is a great light. I recommend you buy several until you get the swing of keeping it healthy.
There's A Difference
We have included this page to help avoid any inconveniences to our customers. There is a difference between the shipping time and the delivery time.
Shipping time is the time that your order takes to leave our warehouse. Each item will show the shipping time. Personalized items generally take a bit longer to ship. Reference the product page for the exact shipping time.
To determine when an item will arrive you will want to take the next business day from the date that you place the order, add the shipping time plus the delivery time.
Example: If you order an item on Monday that states it "Ships in 1 - 2 business days" it will ship out on Wednesday at the latest. Then take a look at the maps below to actually determine when your item will arrive.
Delivery time, sometimes called transit time, is the time that it takes the shipper, UPS or USPS, to deliver the package from our warehouse to your shipping address. Most carriers do not count the day that they pick it up as a "transit day" as it ends up going to a local facility for sorting first.
To determine the transit time of UPS and USPS, please see the two charts below.
