Good light but TERRIBLE workmanship
I bought quite a few of these lights over the last year. They are good lights but there is an issue with the connection for the legs and I already have had 4 break on me. For the first 2 DEWALT gave me a return label, now they are giving me a hard time and telling me we are not using them properly...... Shoddy work..... I have some Milwaukee as well and their craftsmanship is a lot better.

I bought this light about three months ago I keep it in the back seat of my crew cab truck took it out today and the bracket that holds the leg pin in broke. Light will not stand on its own. I love all of my other Dewalt tools and I have many and in most cases several of many this light is by far the worst built of all my tools. So Dewalt if you read these please step up your quality control and built this light to with stand a construction site and at very least a back seat rides in a truck.

I bought this light over a year ago, I work in the auto industry, so it is no stranger to being exposed to all the elements. I have multiple 20v and 60v batteries so i plan accordingly. I have not had any issues with switches, LED's or hinges. It can drain through some of the smaller batteries on high setting. I just make sure to have a 60v that will give me extra power for the long projects at home, work or in between.

Great light
I love this light and would have given it 5 stars if it had the option of plugging it in. It is very well made and easy to set up. I got a little over 3 hours on high with a freshly charged 6ah battery, a little over 6 hours on medium and a little over 9 hours on low. Even on low it is plenty bright. A am a electrical contractor and bought this to use for service changes. Very nice light without much heat.

Nice light but would be 10x more useful if had a 110v option (don't need cord to come with it, just 110v socket for extension)

Breaks at the hinge for the legs
Bought first one yesterday. Checked it out in my living room. Hinge broke right away. Took it back and exchanged for another. Didn't even remove from the box. Same hinge broken in the same place. First Dewalt product where I've ever questioned the design. Would otherwise love it.

Essential tool
Bought this less than a week ago and honestly I've been putting this kind of purchase off for years due to cost, but I can admit that was a terrible mistake. This tool is as essential for anyone in the 20v/60v dewalt cordless line as a drill/impact. I am a electrician and hvac technician and often work in attics/crawls/basements where lighting or 120v power is at a premium and this is the perfect solution for all those environments and the easy portability makes me a huge fan of this purchase. I honestly don't even tripod it most of the time, I use it like a huge flashlight in attics and since it's LED I don't have to worry laying it down with insulation since there is no heat like all my other halogens.

I've made a lot of Dewalt purchases this last year and this one may be my #1 favorite one yet for how easy this makes life for me. As with other reviews the ONLY con to this item is no option for 120v plug power which would have seriously made this the best light in the category.

Absolutely love this light, extremely bright, durable, and compact. The only thing i wish it had as an option to plug it in.

Run time is excellent even on just a 6.0. I imagine it would last a whole day with a 12.0 battery on the highest setting.

Versatile work light
We love this light. I had to talk the wife into it, but since we have used it on several occasions... it's so handy to toss a battery in, and have a lot of light anywhere you need it. we have literally used on normal jobs, power outages, and even stuck it on top of a roof to finish a gutter project (it worked great, sat right across the peak of the roof)

Makes an incredibly handy power failure light, on low it will last a long time on a 5AH battery and totally light up a room (bounced off the ceiling, or can point more directly)

I look forward to other similar/great products from DeWalt.
