Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Old technology. I asked the sales representative if the light had led lights and he confirmed this. Arrived with a single bulb like an old style flashlight. Over priced and Overdue for an upgrade at Makita! September 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to use..very handy Loved this multi angle flashlight so much we gave them as Christmas gifts. Not a common gift to give...but very useful. Everone raved about it. February 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great unit I've used this flashlight before at work so I bought one for home use. It's a handy light to use all around the house and where ever you need a light. December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great This is a great flash light. I already had the batteries and charger from my Makita power drill set, so this was a good complement to that set. I left the light on for at least an 45 minutes and did not have any issues with flickering or dimming. I did not test to see how long it would have lasted. The adjustable head makes it very versatile for multiple applications. With the battery in place, the base is wide enough so the flashlight can stand on its own. September 25, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Should be better Puts out a good light but the overall quality is not up to the $50 price tag. Also it is unnecessarily tall which makes it unstable. January 22, 2013
