Working in the dark is never good. A simple and handy light like the OEMTools cordless LED work light is a great choice for mechanics and technicians looking for something to light their work area.

Overall Score 9.0 (out of 10)

Without light, we don’t exist. Trying to complete a job in a workspace with little to no light feels much the same. This is when you need the OEMTools cordless LED work light that projects 600 lumens of LED splendor upon your work area. The OEMTools model 25997 lasts for up to six hours, while the light is set to “High”. Furthermore, the user recharges the LED work light easily with the included USB charging cord.

OEMTools Cordless LED Work Light Features

The six-hour runtime comes from the 8800 mAh onboard battery combined with the performance-maximized LED strip. Magnets molded into the base make it simple to attach to any metallic surface (except non-ferrous metals). One power button resides on one end of the OEMTools cordless LED work light, hence it controls the three power settings. With a simple press of the button, the user can select from High, Medium and Low. Power output is 600, 300 and 50 lumens respectively. In addition, a long-press of the power button activates the Strobe and S.O.S. modes.


OEMTools offer several accessories for their line of LED work lights. Rubber end casings are very soft and pliable, as well as being nearly translucent. These help the work light from marring surfaces, such as a car’s finish. 3M sticky pads enable the light to adhere to surfaces that aren’t magnetic, such as fiberglass, plastic or aluminum. Two-piece plastic hooks are another option for hanging the light anywhere, or you can opt for a simple hanging strap. A USB cord is included with the OEMTools cordless LED work light, and the 25997 LED comes with a 1-year warranty.

See The Light

This OEMTools LED work light is very handy and the run-time (battery life) is excellent. Pricing for the OEMTools 25997 seems to hover around the $50 range, depending on which web store you choose. With a one year warranty included, this is a great LED work light option that fits somewhere in the middle. This is not going to light up your entire shop, but it’s much better than a typical drop light or flashlight. The size of the light, low-cost, and the run-time of the battery altogether make this an excellent value. I would recommend it.
