Should've came w 110v opt plug / but awesome light
I have 2 of these lights and use them all the time. The setup is easy and the light is far sturdier than any other tripod light that i have ever used. It does not knock over easily, and i actually use it to hold my trailer door on occasion when the wind keeps shutting it on me. The height is very good for me even though i am tall - sure, i get it, ideally the light is directly over your head when working - but this isnt really realistic and you have to expect to move a work light around as needed to keep it out of your eyes. I like the one button set up versus some of the others that require knobs, multiple legs etc. It puts off a ton of light, and using them in a pair to prevent shadows is very ideal and easy to do.

Despite the fact that i have invested heavily in these lights and have plenty of reasons for doing so, i still have a complaint and a really big and super annoying one. This light is very bright - it uses a lot of power and will drain batteries pretty quickly, to the point its annoying. I have about 40 batteries, but seriously do i want to be changing them all the time plus cycling them and wearing them out? i have more to do than that. I would say i only get about 2.5-3 hrs on a 6ah, and the 4ah just about wear down faster than the next one can charge. The technology existed years ago for this to be a corded/cordless tool with a power out - dewalt had this on their old DCL061 which i also own.

Awesome design, worth the money, but im still annoyed i cant plug it in when i need to use it all day. Clearly if there is no 110v power i wouldnt complain about batteries, but trying to use this on a daily basis caused me to go buy a 100.00 corded work light which takes up more room in my trailer and gives less versatility (sigh...) Had the light came with a 110v plug and a outlet just like is on the dcl061 I would be able to daisy chain them adding versatility and freeing up that space again in my trailer.

Great tool for electricians
I've used this light on a few jobs now. I'm an electrician and there are some jobs where there are no lights when i arrive. Thats where this comes in handy.

I last used it about 2 weeks ago on an electrical service fire where the power had to be completely turned off until we could make the repairs. It lit up the entire section of the factory where we worked.

Idk what the other reviewer is talking about. This light extends to 7 ft and is directional. Guess he didn't know how to use it?
Other then this light being a bit of a battery hog (drains a 6ah in about 3 hours on high i have no issues with it.

Another great Dewalt tool!
This light is excellent! Super quick setup, lightweight and 3 modes for brightness. Battery life is pretty good, and the rotating head makes it easy to brighten up any space. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because it does not have the plug-in feature to work as corded/charge the battery.
