DEWALT Cordless Fluorescent Area Light - Tool Only, 18 Volt, 13 Watts, Model# DC527
Good for concentrated lighting
No one tool fits all jobs; this Dewalt light is PERFECT for concentrated lighting only. I like that it works of the same battery as my power drill. I have used this light when working on my gutters, chimney insert and my car.

Great light for the Money
I needed a good area type light and since I already had a Dewalt drill with extra batteries and charger, this seemed like a good choice. I was not disappointed as the light has performed great and has continued to perform even after several accidental drops. This is a good companion for your Dewalt power tools and accessories.

DeWalt DC527 Area Light
We purchased our first generator this January and about six weeks ago had our first power outage. After struggling in the dark using a flashlight to fill up the generator with fuel and hooking the generator I figured there had to be a better way. I purchased one of these lights from Northern Tool. It floods the entire area with bright light, stands easily on it's base, and the retractable hook makes it very handy to use. Although this light is good for many other uses around the home I consider it a must have for a power outage.

Very handy and well built light
This light is very handy and I use it much more than I ever thought I would. Really came in handy during our last power outage. I use it in the engine compartment of my boat very often. It provides a lot of light!

Dewalt Cordless Light
I love this light! It is very handy and uses my existing 18 volt batteries.
The only thing I would like to see is a charge gauge. When the battery goes low the light simply turns off without any warning.
The light is very sturdy, I have dropped it many times and it still works great.
I wish my 1/2 Dewalt cordless drill worked as flawlessly.
This light is by far my most often used Dewalt tool!
It is a little expensive but you will love it too!

Bright, and Handy!
This High Quality lamp is very bright and built with the durability you expect from Dewalt. It's slim size makes it convenient to use in tight spaces such as auto repair.

This is an excellent light. I am a heavy equipment mechanic the light is strong. Gives off light just like a plug in fluoresent but no cord with a safer feeling working in wet areas.

Great Portable Shop Light
I am currently managing a warehouse for a Christmas charity. With limited electricity, lighting in this warehouse was a problem before I purchased the DeWalt DC527. Problem solved! Several of the volunteers have commented on the difference these lights have made. Unlike a flashlight, this light provides even illumination over a broad area that can be used for reading, doing paperwork, repairing equipment, etc. Simply place the light in the area you are working - no need to spend time aiming and repositioning the light as you would a flashlight. Unit stands upright on it's base or can be hung from above with its built-in hook. Light uses the same 18-volt batteries as all DeWalt 18-volt tools. Provides 3.5 hours of constant run time on a single charge. With 2 or more batteries and a charger, you can have non-stop light.
DeWalt did their homework on this one.
