Product Overview

The DEWALT DC527 18-Volt Area Light is built to take the rough handling of a professional jobsite. Inside the rugged, resilient, dust-and-dirt resistant housing is a 13-Watt fluorescent bulb that shines bright, but runs much cooler than other types of bulbs found on the job site. In fact, this light has become a favorite with a wide range of trades people, including carpenters, plumbers, electricians, HVAC contractors, millwrights, and marine and automobile mechanics. It is a tool you’ll appreciate when working in small, cramped spaces, such as attics, crawlspaces, closets and under decks and porches.

  • Built-in telescoping and 360° rotating hook allows unit to hang from 2 in. materials and multiple locations
  • Over-molded lens cover provides increased durability on the jobsite
  • Pre heat circuit helps eliminate blackening at the base of the bulb
  • Twist and lock tool free lens cover allows for quick and easy bulb change

Answer: 
This light operates on DeWalt 18 volt Ni-cad batteries, so you need a DeWalt charger that accepts that type of battery. Notice that this light is not supplied with a battery, so you'll need to purchase (or borrow!) a battery AND a charger.

Yes, but the light does not include a battery with it. You will use a Dewalt 18 volt battery.

And, the service center should be able to rebuild the 18V battery with new interior Ni-Cad cells. at least, my Tampa FL center can do this.
Cheers! hope this helps you. SamD Read Less

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Portable Light Good light output, easy to hold, and no cord to drag around. Just grab it and go. Especially good for damp or wet areas where a corded light might pose an electric shock hazard. The only complaint I have is that the light does not provide an indication that the battery charge is getting low; it runs steady until the battery gives out, and then you're suddenly in the dark. That's usually just an annoyance for me, but I go prepared with another charged battery or a backup flashlight if getting left in the dark would leave me in a bad way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No replacement bulbs available Home Depot does not carry the replacement bulb for this light, and they are not easy to find. Major mistake by HomeDepot. The light itself is great, if you can find a source for the bulbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good potable light for the price Works great for a small to medium work area. Light weight, has a hook to hang up. The light will last 8 plus hours on one battery. Great buy for the price, I wished dewalt made an led 18volt light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18 v cordless fluorescent area light I've had this light for about year and use it several times a week . it has been dropped a half dozen times from distance of 3 feet, and it keeps working. It will work several hours on single charged battery. I highly recommend this light
