Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright light This light has great output - capable of lighting an entire room. Has decent battery life, with the 4Ah batteries lasting a few hours and an option to use line voltage with an extension cord. Since it is so bright, the dimmer function is a must have for using in smaller areas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great even light output This light is solid and functional. Is it bright? Yes, very. It covers a wide area much like a flood light. Is it not a direct beam of light like a spotlight. Being able to adjust the light output is nice and is easily controlled by a rotary dial around the off and on switch. Using Ridgids tripod or any with a 1/4-20 mount would help getting the light on plane with your eyes but on the floor is great. The handle design...or lack of handle...is one issue and should be addressed. It is hard to pick up with one hand from the floor as there is no positive surface to grab. It can be hung from a wire or nails but not from a 2xlumber. Seems odd to me. Otherwise, it is a great light and I use it constantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent light Excellent light for the price. I use it much more than I thought I would. The adjustable output is a great feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and bright, light is cool to the touch also This is great for outdoor events or dim areas indoor. I love the fact that this light runs cool, so there is hardly any heat emitted from the LEDs. With the Hybrid option you can plug it in to save your battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aaaaaaaaaamazing Light ! I bought this with the tripod I immediately mounted it and put a 5 amp battery in turned it on the highest setting and left it for almost 3.5 hours and when it was almost drained it flashed to let me know. I will be buying another soon. I used it on the job it was like working in daylight. I set it on the back of the truck and it was knocked off and bounced a few times it still works and doesn't have mark on it. having the option to plug it in makes this the perfect tool for the job site. I highly recommend buying the tripod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This amazing light is truly a game changer! I already have work lights, however really wanted to upgrade to something cordless. I may need to work for 8-16 hours a day so having something that's simply "rechargeable" wasn't good enough...I need to be able to kill the battery & just swap it out & keep on going. With this working on the same batteries as my other 18v tools this was exactly what I was looking for! And when people say bright you have no clue how incredibly BLINDING this thing is when it's on it's highest setting! And with the side panels being able to bend & move independently does an amazing job at removing all of the shadows in a room. This product was very well thought out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Light Picked this up both for home project and I also do photography as a hobby as well and believe me. You can't touch a photography LED light panel like this in photography for less than several hundred dollars and they are not as well made. Plus being covered by the LSA once you register it.. This is a no brainer.. AC powered and also Battery Powered.. What are you waiting on..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The lights work great! I do not understand what took so long for Ridgid to come out with these. I really like the ability to use battery or cord for a power source.

Has anyone used for photos and got accurate colors

Asked by: markh

Would it work with my 20 V Gen5X batteries?

I have the Gen5X 20V 5 tools combo. I know it's a 18V panel light, but would it work with my 20V batteries?
