Makita 12V LED Flashlight ML103

Makita 12V Max CXT LED Flashlight

The Makita 12V Max CXT Lithium-ion LED Flashlight works well as a truly compact light source. The Makita ML103 delivers up to 28 hours per charge when paired with a 12V CXT 4.0 Ah battery. The ML103 measures just 3-7/16 inches long and weighs just over 1/2-pound—with a 2Ah battery installed. The compact size makes an attractive, easily-placed option for tight and confined spaces.

Our Thoughts

While you can have your choice of many LED lights, the Makita ML103 looks like a simple, but effective solution for a small area light. We like the simplicity of this 12V flashlight—and you can’t beat the price. 100 lumens doesn’t net you a ton of illumination, but it should help under cabinets or in close quarters. For under $20, it’s hard not to want this if you already use Makita 12V CXT tools.
