    "Great flashlight...Great flashlight. Not super-duper bright, but i have other flashlights for that. ...I’ve got much smaller flashlights using much less powerful batteries that generate far more powerful, and versatile beams. "

    See all customer reviews

    Product Description

    The average flashlight emits about 100 lumens of light. The Worx 20V Multi-Function LED Light pumps out 450 lumens in lantern mode. So it’s anything but an average flashlight, both in performance and functionality. It’s actually about 5 or 6 times better than the average. Besides lantern and flashlight mode, it’s also an emergency strobe light, so you can signal assistance on the road or in the water. It’s a desk lamp with an energy-saving Lo setting for reading, or a 420 lumen Hi setting so everyone can see blueprints or whatnot around the table. And the attached lanyard lets you hang it from just about anything, so it’s also a powerful hanging lamp. The head pivots 70 so you can position the light right where you need it. And the beam provides 265 feet of useful range in flashlight mode. The ultra-efficient LED lamp has a burn time of 50,000 hours, so you’re going to be using this light for a while (it will last for decades with regular use). It only weighs 1.72 lbs, so it’s a lot of functionality in a lightweight package. And it’ll run for 8 hours as a lantern, or 18 as a flashlight, on just one charge. Speaking of which, this model comes with a 20V 1.5 Ah Power Share battery and charger that you can use to operate any tool in the Power Share family. Keep it in the car or the boat, your bag or your toolbox, the garage or up at the cabin, you’ll always have light with the 20V Multi-Function LED Light, and a lot of it.
