I’ve been looking for a good tripod light for a while. Since I have a lot of Dewalt batteries, I’ve put in a notification in camelcamelcamel for a specific price. I got notified earlier this week that the price had dropped. Now Amazon has this light (tool only) for $159 for Prime. Normally this is $199 or $179. I just thought you might like to let your readers know.
I hope they don’t improve it and come out with a better one too soon (like can operate on AC, built in charger, or individual adjustable lights) like the Milwaukee one.
This really is a nice LED worklight, and from the look of the reviews over at Amazon, that seems to be the popular opinion.
It features a 7′ height adjustment range, 3000 lumen brightness rating, and 3 brightness settings. It folds down for easy carrying and storage.
Amazon’s product imagery says it’s rated to IP55 water and dust resistance, although Dewalt’s website says it’s IP54.
Dewalt says the runtime is over 11 hours, presumably at the low brightness setting and with a 6.0Ah battery (because that’s what the DCL079R1 kit comes with).
It’s a fantastic light at a lower than usual price.
Sale Price: $159 for the bare tool
