All-around awful! UPDATED UPDATE: I’ve since returned this hunk of junk and opted for the ridgid folding LED light (R8694221B) from the big orange store. Those are far superior in every possible way, and put out a blinding 2500 lumens. To solve my battery problem, I modified them to accept Makita LXT batteries (cheap USB battery adapter shoes, a bit of plastic cutting, some soldering, and hot glue did the trick). They work great with the LXT’s, and probably get about an hour on a 5 amp battery at full brightness…

Good overall, but with limits Pros: Bright, weather resistant and well made overall. The light pattern is a well dispersed flood. Versatile in that it can used corded or cordless. A bit bulky, but easy to handle and not too heavy. The LEDs run cool – much less hazardous than halogen. The cord is reasonably flexible, unlike some cheap lights. The angle adjustment is solid and easy to use.Cons: Don’t expect the light output of a high wattage halogen. In lumens, this is closer to the output of a good 60w bulb,…
