Extremely Versatile
This LED area light is excellent for electrical work. Its compact design makes it perfect to use in the tightest spots. The light is powerful enough to light up an entire room with ease and the adjustable angle is great when I need to see in a precise location. The build quality is awesome. I dropped my light of the top of a 12 foot ladder onto tile and it still works perfectly. I HIGHLY recommend this light.

This light gives off lots of light even on the lower setting. The handy hook makes easier to use hands free. As I own other DeWalt cordless tools, batteries are no problem. As my vision is slowly deteriorating, every little bit helps.

Love this light!
I bought this light about two years ago and have been using it even since! I work on automotive equipment and it really comes in handy. Can stand it on the battery base and angle the light to get it to shine where it’s needed. Also has a hook to handle it in places where it can’t stand. Recommended!

It does the job well. I have switched to this work light completely from my other rechargeable lamps. Very universal, using in the attic and crawlspace, but also for car work and as a hiking lamp. Superbly universal! Love the hook on top. Mostly using with 3Ah and 4Ah battery.

I wish it would be more stable (it has tendency to tip over quite a bit especially on non-even surface), there should be more intensities of light (two as they are and on press and hold to adjust to any intensity - easy software update). The head sometimes folds up and down too easily.

This thing is invincible
I had this thing mounted to the front of my dirt bike and went down a hill climb and couldn't stop in time and had me and my bike fly into a tree and at 15 to 20 miles a hour and the light is where it hit the tree head on and it got ripped off and battery flew but the light didnt even have a scratch on it and works perfectly fine still unlike my knee which needed 17 stitches.

I bought this DeWalt Handheld Cordless Light because of the
Quality and Features it offers. I already have the Matching
Batteries from my 20/Volt DeWalt Drill. The light works
Great and has 2/different light modes [High & Low]. It's Great
For working inside my car where normal daylight isn't enough.
The light was Packaged Very Well, too/????.
Thank You Tyler Tool
Best Regards//

Best overall light
I have all the DeWalt handheld lights. If I could buy only one this would be it. It throws light over a broad area and is very bright. It's great under a cabinet, hood of a car, in a crawl space or attic, and awesome for camping.

This area light has proven to be more useful for many tasks. The cordless Dewalt flashlights are great but wash out details when you try to work in close on something or even try to read a dial gauge.
The light is bright enough to manage a 10-ft work zone and the articulating lamp design allows easy aiming for your specific needs.

Surprisingly bright and durable
I have owned this for a while, and like most of the tools I own I use them very roughly. I dropped this light from 35 ft and it didnt even flinch. Still works flawlessly. The fact that the light also bends backwards is very nice to get into some tricky spots.
