Dewalt has a new ToughSeries tape measure on the way, a 25′ tape with built-in LED light, model DWHT35625S.
From what I can tell, the new Dewalt tape measure is identical to their existing ToughSeries 25′ tape, a fantastic albeit pricey tape measure.
Like the non-lighted model, this tape has a 17-foot reach (14 foot standout + plus 3 feet).
It features double-sided markings, with printing on the reverse side for easier overhead measurements.
The light helps the tape provide professional-grade performance in the darkest work areas.
It’s toggled on and off via a large power button on the bottom.
The built-in battery is charged via USB. It’s unclear what type of USB port this is, but let’s hope it’s USB-C.
Dewalt says the tape measure can withstand drops of up to 100 feet onto packed soil.
The belt clip design should be familiar to Dewalt tape measure users.
In case you missed it, Milwaukee also has an LED tape measure on the way.
