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 degree rotating hook allows unit to hang from 2 in. materials and multiple locations
  • Over-molded lens cover provides increased durability on the jobsite
  • 13 Watt fluorescent bulb provides bright area lighting
  • Twist and lock tool free lens cover allows for quick and easy bulb change
  • Pre heat circuit helps eliminate blackening at the base of the bulb
  • Runs on the 18 Volt battery system for longer run time
  • Battery sold separately

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 19, 2011

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Light Every DeWalt product I own has been very reliable. This light gives good coverage and have dropped this a couple times with no breaks. May 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect product Lightweight and inexpensive. Great work light. Also perfect for camping. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liked so much I bought a second light.. My second light. Always handy for chores, repairs, emergency, and general lighting in camp or cellar lighting. Keeping my first light in my RV. December 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good reliable area light has a good volume of illumination. Easy hanger hook or put it on a flat surface, it won't tip over. Lasts for 1 and half hours to two hours on a fresh battery. I have two of the flourescent lamps and a replacement bulb. this works perfectly for my jobs around the house and shed. If DeWalt wants to improve this lamp, design a much better internal lamp shock absorbing/mounting bracket, and a little thicker bulb shield. JMHO. - thank you. mark s. July 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purshase The light is very durable and with the hideaway hook very easy to use. Excellent purchase. July 22, 2014
