There is lots of Led technology these days so I was severely disappointed when I hooked this light up to a fresh 18v batt. The cheap $2 flashlights they sell at every checkout line of ever home improvement store is brighter than this thing. Come on makita your better than this. I own several makita tools but not this one anymore.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heff Great performance, even better value!
I bought this online a couple years ago for my Makita tools, and I paid ALOT more for it. A 18V flashlight for under $20 is a HUGE bargain!!!
It's not the fanciest light out there, but it works well. It literally slaps on top of the 18V compact or full sized battery.
It's super bright and lasts a long time on even the smaller battery. The elastic strap comes in handy. You can strap it to just about anything. One of my guys even hooked the strap around the head of a drill for extra light! My only complaint is that it's a little on the wide side, which is to be expected since it is as wide as the battery.

I didn't read the package as close as I should have because the light claims 500 "LUX" NOT 500 LUMENS...the output is about 50-70 lumens. I was put off by the low power. It might work to condition your batteries but there are better light out there.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by psyarasin Very disappointing
Very under powered and not a very practical design. I purchased this item to be able to do some minor electrical work with the power out and it was very cumbersome.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ScubaSteve Good flashlight, needs a little work to make it great.
This is a good durable flashlight. It needs some changes to make it great. It could use some kind of stand or hanger and could be a little brighter. All in all it is worth the money. I still recommend it as is.

Disappointing for a Makita product. Not user friendly because it's difficult to hold and position correctly with the battery attached. Light not that bright at any appreciable distance.

This unit functions as I expected. It's not real bright but I'm sure that saves on run time. It works great for my needs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by yetinate unimpressed
Im vested in makita tools. The battery is powerful enough to run a stronger lamp than this. Just a bit brighter than a $4 flashlight. So what if its rugged. I cant see with it......
