Just Bought my 3rd Light!
I just purchased my 3rd light to replace one I bought in 2014. That light lasted 6 years! This would've received 5 stars if there was a way for me to replace the bulb. But as it's an LED, the problem may have been elsewhere.
I've used it for auto and home repair as well as at the campsite. It never let me down and left me feeling like a pro. Love being able to just set it down and adjust the tilt to right where I need it. Outstanding brightness and range and even survived a few drops. Lasting me 6yrs, that's just over $10 per year. Can't beat that!

Good for small areas
This is easy to use and put it in different angles. The ring in the top makes it easy to hang it.

Handiest light ever!!
I've had this light almost a year and I've had great service out of it. I keep it in my truck but use it in the house pretty often also. I really should get another. It is probably my favorite DeWalt tool.

I bough this for on the job but since have left. I still use it at home regularly for certain areas of the house that does not have enough lighting, or the lights take too long to get to peak brightness. This flashlight has came in handy and even when I dropped it, it still works. I love Dewalt products for home and work, I’ve started switching from my other brands.

Rugged and very well built
I’ve had the chance to use this light for a couple weeks now and it’s very solid and doesn’t eat batteries. It’s tough enough to handle day in and day out use. Couldn’t be happier with it

Best light I’ve ever had!
I have this light at work and it amazed me the first time I used it. It is the brightest working light I’ve seen. It even works from floor to high (30’+ ceilings.

Great Multi-Purpose Light
I just wanted a nice heavy duty flash light option and this one filled that need. It’s durable and heavy enough to stand up on its own for hands free use. Great product!
