This light I keep close.
With a lightweight design, I take it everywhere I go. Also, as I'm getting older my eyes are having trouble adjusting to dark and dim lit places. I use this light everywhere, e v e r y where. I've not not been able to light up an area where I needed to complete any task. Found to be durable after dropping it once or twice from improper handling, I believe this to be the last worklight I ever buy.

love how bright it is
I only just got the light but it feels awesome and it is super bright i only have one complaint and that is about the pivoting head i wish that it either took more effort to pivot or that it could lock (I find that when using the light it will pivot at times where I do not want or require it to pivot

Great all around light
I just started using this but am very happy with it so far. My old light is the DW919 and there is no comparison between the two. I saw one person complain about their 5.0ah batteries not fitting well but my DCB205 batteries slide on and off with ease. Maybe it was an early production model they had? I use it for lighting up small areas for electrical work and for working underneath vehicles. It won't be the same as a well lit room or being outside in the daylight but I can see just fine with it and that's the point.

Works but has issues
I have the DCL040 and love it si I wanted to love the DCL050 but it comes with issues. The light is OK but needs a wider field of light. The pivoting head is so long and heavy that the pivot continually falls to the 90 degree position so a stronger detent would be a nice update. The light I received has an issue with the battery clip on certain batteries. The 6 ah batteries slide on and off with ease but my 5 ah batteries are very hard to get on and off as if the light has a mold error for the battery guides. Once locked in position there are no issues but it is very difficult to get the depleated battery off the flashlight. The same battery slides on and off ALL my other tools without issue so it is only the DCL50 flashlight that has this issue. Light output is ok for general use but overall could be brighter.

Good for on the go.
With the batteries, it has a good stable base. Could use more diodes to broaden the field of lighting. Like the fact that I can inter change batteries with my other tools.
