I use this light everyday!
I use this the most on job sites as well as mechanical work and tough to see spots. I’ll throw a 60v battery in it and I won’t worry about charging it for weeks. It was one tool I was hesitant to buy but once I used it I was hooked. It’s not going to illuminate a room, it’s more of a direct beam of light, but it will help with hard to reach places, especially cabinetry work.

Great spotlight - very convenient - powerful
Have only had it short while. Have not used it long enough on any one occasion to deplete the battery (1.5AH). 1,000 lumens light is very bright. It would be better if there was also a half power setting available. The red light setting is very helpful to conserve night vision in close up situations and is just the right intensity. A very nice spotlight.

I just got this light about a week ago. I’ve used it now for a couple projects and man is it bright. So easy just to slap in one of my 20v batteries and not have to worry about it running out and have to recharge it. I just grab another battery and I’m back up and going. You can shoot this thing at the ceiling and light up a entire room. I’d recommend to anyone

We had smaller light and it was lost - lesson learned lost light & battery. This light is a great light. Larger beam lights up a long way

Fantastic spotlight
I can not begin to explain how powerful this light is, a great spotlight but also as a filler light. It makes my job a lot easier knowing that I have a great source of light that works easily with the 20v max system

We were given this as a gift. We absolutely love the light but the real joy is that my 5-month-old son loves the noise it makes when you flip . It is the only thing that makes him belly laugh - so I couldn't ask for a better product!

What's the run time on fully charged battery?
A shopper on Nov 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That depends on the amp-hour of the battery you're using
I would like to use it to spot deer ?
A shopper on Jan 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is plenty bright enough and the beam is centered well. It would work well for this where it is legal. I've used it for locating game after the shot at dusk. The 3 led area light also available works great for.skinning after the shot.
Will my 20 volt black and Decker batteries work with this?
Terry S on Mar 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, B&D batteries are not compatible with Dewalt tools.
Can I use a 40 Volt Dewalt battery?
Mary R on Oct 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I know the 60 Volt "Flexvolt" batteries will work on this light because they are 20 Volt backwards compatible. I do not think the 40V batteries are designed to run at 20V but I am not completely sure. I do own several of these lights though and they are bright and shine pretty far.
as far as distance how many yards can I expect to see ?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Approximately 200 to 250 yards, best at 150 yards. Excellent spotlight. I highly recommend it.
Is this light TOO bright to use as a work light? Looking for an all around light.
Steve K on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This spot light has a very high lumen listing, so yes it could be overbearing in smaller work areas.
Do you have to have a special 20 volt battery to use LED light?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The light accepts any 20 volt max Dewalt battery.
