DeWalt DCL077 Task Light with Variable Max Output

The DeWalt DCL077 Task Light looks pretty versatile if you consider the output modes and battery support. Any of the DeWalt 12V Max, 20V Max, or 60V FlexVolt batteries can provide power.

While it can run on any of these batteries, you get the most output when pairing the DeWalt LED Task Light with 20V Max batteries (or a FlexVolt pack). With a 20V battery, the DeWalt DCL077 gives you the following:

  • High: 2,000 lumens
  • Medium: 1,000 lumens
  • Low: 500 lumens

Use a smaller 12V Max battery, and the output drops according to maintain run-time:

  • High: 1,000 lumens
  • Medium: 500 lumens
  • Low: 250 lumens

A single button lets you adjust the LED output mode. The inserted battery automatically adjusts the maximum light output.

More DeWalt Task Light Features

Inserting a battery like the 4.0Ah Compact 20V Max pack lets you use the full functionality of the 360° rotating handle. With a larger 60V FlexVolt pack, the handle may contact the battery on the backside.

DeWalt designed the handle to work with the various mounting and use methods. Obviously, it can be used as a handheld light. You can also angle it—using the handle as a base. It can even be hung from a wire or mounted to a tripod (the light includes both 5/8″ and 1/4″ universal thread mounts).

Finally, we love that DeWalt chose to go with a 4,000K LED system. This light temperature delivers a “natural daylight” hue. This helps with recognizing a surface’s true color, which can be beneficial particularly with paint, drywall, and wiring applications.

They also made it with an IP54 rating to keep out dust and water.



The DeWalt DCL077 Task Light retails for $99 as a bare tool. It comes with a 3-year limited warranty, 1-year free service agreement, and 90-day money-back guarantee.
