Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for discharging faulty batteries I bought this as I had read on other forums that it would discharge faulty batteries past the regular discharge level. That in turn would help my batteries charge properly, and fully. It totally worked. I plugged in one of three batteries that I couldn't charge anymore. Turned it on and left it on overnight. It flashed on/off many times throughout the night, so I put it in a cupboard. In the morning, I plugged in the battery into the charger, and it finally didn't flash with the green & red light (indicating a faulty battery). It actually charged! Now I have all three of my faulty batteries working again. Note, that it has to be the LED flashlight to be able to discharge the batteries fully. October 24, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very powerful and useful worklight! This light is extremely bright for an LED flashlight, my next brightest light gets washed out by the spill of the Milwaukee, nevermind the main beam. The magnet is rubberized so it won't slide down the ferrous surface you stick it to and it's very powerful so it grips easily. The only things I would improve about it is it's ability to point down when hanging by the magnet and maybe add the ability to turn down the brightness for use in close quarters and LED/battery life.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! Very bright, comes in handy with installs in cabinetry. The head swivels and it has a magnet on the back for hands free use. Highly recommended if you already own M12 volt tools. November 4, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good light, weak magnet This is a good work light, especially if you have a bunch of M12 spare batteries; although there are better options for general use or emergencies. I use it a lot for extra illumination when TIG welding. Puts out a nice wide beam, about 40 degrees wide. It's not smooth, but there are no holes in the beam. There's almost no spill, which is good because when your eyes are outside of the light's projected beam, you don't see any glare. The head angles 90 degrees, and it stands on end (on the battery). Run time is excellent, I tested 4hrs and 20 minutes on a fully charged M12. Output is regulated, so it retains full brightness right up until the battery dies, and then it shuts off. Keep a spare battery handy and you'll always have light, since the M12s charge pretty quickly. My only gripe is that the magnet is so weak it's useless - I stuck it on my fridge and it slid down to the floor. I use a bungee cord to strap it to things, and then with the swivel head you can point it in almost any direction. August 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Provides a good amount of light. I was surprised at the amount light this throws. Using it on the job, and quite happy with it. Seems durable. I often use it with the 4.0XC battery, to give it a more stable base with which to stand, but it does stand fine with the smaller battery also. The magnet isn't the strongest, but it does seems to hold it well enough with the smaller battery in it. Haven't noted exactly how long it'll run with any particular battery, but seems to be plenty on even the 2.0. It's kind of pricy, but the convenience of it with batteries you already have is worth it, to me. Recommended. April 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by M12 Light Lightweight and easy to use. I work in A/C Refrigeration and I need something I can depend on. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great light!!! Bought this light because I had a bunch of other m12 parts and batts. I needed a flashlight and today I was going cave exploring and needed a bright light. Let me tell you if I knew the store here had more of go buy another. The light worked perfectly and it is so bright! Adjustable head can't beat it. Have to buy if you need a really bright flashlight!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mehhh, I wanted this LED light both for the cordless convenience, and because I had too many extra batteries laying around - might as well put them to use. First impressions: it's alright, but pretty expensive for what it is. The light itself is about as strong as my corded trouble light using a fluorescent bulb, so not bad. The magnet is pathetic. Doesn't anybody at Milwaukee use their own tools after they design them? Shameful the magnet has no strength to attach and hold! Four stars instead of five. Good is a long way from great.
