The Gyros 58-23672 Magnalite Pro Cordless Work Light makes working in the dark an almost pleasant experience thanks to its portability, flexibility and the large amount of light it puts out. This work light can easily replace most automotive drop lights, flashlights and even camping lanterns – and yet it offers cool-to-the-touch bright light to illuminate any task. With a slender size and lithium-ion battery power, there are many things to like about this work light.
Everybody we talk to loves LED flashlights. Coast just came out with its new HP7 which boasts 207 ANSI lumens – that is bright! The flashlight is also becoming popular due to Coast products showing up all over Lowe’s. More and more people are becoming familiar with the brand and, as a result, it’s extensive line of high-end LED-based flashlight products. The HP7 has some impressive specs and features, even beyond the bright output of the Cree-style LED. We were more than happy to lend our critique to the new flashlight and see if it’s array of features, functions and flash were as impressive as we were hearing about.
DeWalt announced the launch of a 12V MAX Lithium Ion LED Work Light (DCL510) as part of its new 12 Volt MAX cordless platform. With a 130-Lumen LED light and a head that rotates 360-degrees and pivots, the DCL510 provides bright illumination to maximize visibility and accuracy on the jobsite. The product will come with a three-year limited warranty, one year free service contract and 90-day money back guarantee.
We got to take a look at the Milwaukee M18 Cordless Work Light (49-24-0171). Initially we liked the basic design of the work light, but had to complain, respectfully, that any stand-alone light in this day and age should include a new super-bright LED bulb. Milwaukee sells both an LED-based Work Light 2735-20 ($55) and a 50,000-hour stand-alone LED upgrade bulb 49-81-0090 ($30).
