The Only Light You Will Need
Living in South Florida, there will be a storm and you will lose power. I have a collection of lights and lanterns that I have used over the years incandescent, florescent and now LED. Nothing I've had compares to this light. Insanely bright for it's size. Versatility with the pivoting head to point the light where you want. Point it back and bounce it off the ceiling for an area light or shine it directly where you want. I'll add a couple more along with more XR 20V Batteries for this Hurricane Season. It's a great work light too, it's my go to light and always ready to go to work when I need it.

Nice smaller light, good for all types of projects
I love this light for up close work. Works fantastic for enclosed areas, wide angle of displacement. Very bright. I like you do have some control over brightness. One area of improvement would be on the set detentes for the light. Being able to adjust the light is nice however the head of the light is to heavy for the detentes that are currently on the light. The head falls to easily. I would like to see a position lock or stronger detentes. When I am using the light with electronics and hanging on ceiling hooks it works great. I would recommend this light for everyone with 20v systems.

I just went to 20 V last year and was ready for a light last month. I was happy to see a flood available and not just a spot. Homes we have had, hotel rooms we’ve rented and just about any place I decide to sit and read for a few hours never have a reading light as good as this one. I do keep the new light cleaner than I can my construction site batteries. I’ll get another one.

Too top heavy
I've had this light for years as it came in a combo and it is an awful design. Even with a heavy 6mah battery it is top heavy and awkward and always falling over when you need it most.

Not as bright as you would want.
Nice quality, but for the price, I expected a lot brighter. Cant fill a garage with sub-par lighting. If its right on top of your project your fine. But if you wanting to fill a small area, think again.

Love this Light
Ive had this light for 2 years. i use all the time as i am an hvac contractor, i love the hanging hook, longevity of battery, and durability. Im wondering how long a flex volt battery would last on this baby.

The negative- I like that it tells me Im on borrowed time battery wise by flashing- unless Im in a dark spot. Not a big deal but worth mentioning.

Overheating problems
Got two of these from Amazon deal of the day since it was so cheap. For some reason (not the battery both of the lights will shut off after running for about half an hour when I work in the attic. SO I carry both lights with me and use one at a time. Reason I think it’s overheating is it takes a while to turn back on after, have to wait a couple minutes and even then, it maybe stays on for 15 minutes then shuts off again.

Describe Yourself:
Great little light
I hate cords and bought this to replace the 14v fluorescent light that I had and used regularly, but the NiCad batteries died and it won’t accept the 14v Li Ion battery I have. Best move I made. It is the “right” size and the dual intensity mode is a bonus. Light life, even on the 2 AmpHr battery, is acceptable on bright and more than acceptable on low light mode. Even on the low mode the light output is usable. I use this on house projects and repairs. So, it may sit around for a while and then get used for a week or 2 or more, straight. I have had it long enough to put it through its paces, including dropping it from some pretty good heights, which it survived. I read that some people have problems with it staying at an angle. This has not been an issue on mine. Maybe a quality issue? Even so, I am entertaining buying a second.
