Ridgid Upgrades 18V Cordless LED Spotlight With Higher Output
Ridgid is no stranger to jobsite lighting, offering a variety of solutions with an assortment of brightness settings. Adding to that list is the Ridgid 18V Cordless LED Spotlight. While it’s reminiscent of Ridgid’s original Light Cannon, it has some significant changes to the output.
Ridgid 18V LED Spotlight: The Big Deal
This lighting solution provides up to 3,200 lumens using seven 5-watt LEDs. Compared to the Light Cannon from several years back, that’s 700 lumens more. Since it’s a spotlight, that means we’re going for distance over area coverage and this one reaches out 670 yards (2,010 feet).
For control, there are three brightness settings— high (3200 lumens), medium (2000 lumens), and low (1000 lumens). When you turn the spotlight on, it starts on the high setting. From there, you can cycle to medium or low by pressing the power button until you reach the setting you’re aiming for.
To turn the power off without toggling through each brightness mode, you simply hold the power button for two seconds from any setting. Holding the power button for two seconds while the light off automatically switches it to the low setting to avoid toggling through the brighter modes.
As far as the runtime is concerned, expect to achieve up to 8.5 hours of runtime per charge using a 6.0Ah Max Output battery. That’s on low, of course.
The head pivots 190° so you can adjust the light to the perfect angle when you’re setting it down or connecting the light to a tripod.
- Tripod and belt hook compatible (both sold separately)
- Low voltage indicator: light flashes three times to indicate low battery
- Overheating protection dims or turns the light off if the temperature is too high
- Weighs 2.1 pounds bare
