The problem is the standard work lights you see for cheap are not designed for extreme vibration. I took apart the light after it failed and looked inside. What I found was a small coil had broken off inside. Lots of parts on the circuit board to vibrate off.
The Rigid light I have also taken apart and found there are no parts to vibrate off. Looks like a real solid design.
