Does this light come with a battery?
Asked by: Scott
Scott. No the light does not come with batteries. You purchase them separately. That said, know that you'll get about 2 hours of light from a 5aH battery on a full charge if you have this thing on the highest illumination setting. i recommend using a power cord if you're going to be working long hours in the night on the highest setting on this light.

Is this light covered under the lifetime service agreement that my other tools have?

Asked by: JD
It is covered by the LSA if you properly register it. I just got mine approved a week or so ago.

Discontinued?

I special ordered this light through my local Home Depot store only to be issued a refund and informed that it was discontinued (store was informed by Ridgid). Is this correct?
Asked by: TM
It is possible, after all LED technology keeps improving monthly - I would not be surprised they made a limited number of these units before designing a far more powerful and efficient panel light.

GEN5X 18-Volt Hybrid Folding Panel Light is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. I was blown away by the brightness of this lamp. It's listed at up to 2500 ... Excellent product. I was blown away by the brightness of this lamp. It's listed at up to 2500 lumens and that is quickly apparent once you turn up the brightness to max. We used it to light up the driveway for some basketball. This did a better job of providing clean, useful light than my normal outdoor house lights. It also has a high quality feel. Nothing feels cheap. I like how it folds up making it easy to transport and also protecting the lens. It's easy to manipulate to get the right angle or light coverage. It also has the ability to mount to the Ridgid tripod. Battery life was strong using my 4 Ah battery. A couple hours of usage only took away 1 bar on the battery and that was at full brightness. You can also plug in a power cord if you are low on batteries, which is a nice addition. I like this light. Great for construction, home remodeling, painting, etc. but also for family fun and late outdoor work. I recommend.

The lights are cool to the touch, highly durable and weather resistance, goes perfectly with the stand, highly versatile and EXCEPTIONALLY bright. It's pricier than other options but it FEELS/LOOKS professional. I originally owned a husky system which felt flimsy and looked amatuer. This product, doesn't. It's exactly what I need and was looking for in a reliable jobsite lighting option. (NOTE: if you're running a 5aH battery on this thing... expect about 2 hours of light on the highest setting. It will drain your battery quickly. My recommendation is to use a power cord if you're going to be running this thing on the highest setting and turn down the illumination when operating on battery... unless you have replacement batteries on standby or can finish the job in less than 2 hours.)

I needed a bright light over my workbench for doing projects in my home shop. A couple screws into the back wall, and this light hangs in a perfect spot. It kept me from fishing a wire and installing an outlet. Super bright and doesn't heat up like regular shop lights. You can even dim it if it's too bright! DON'T LOOK STRAIGHT AT THIS THING WHEN IT'S ON HIGH! Seriously, it hurts. 5 stars. Love it.

Just a couple of clarifications from reading other reviews. Someone gave it 4 stars because the light output isn't adjustable. Apparently that person didn't read the manual or try turning one of the only 2 knobs on the light because the light output is definitely adjustable. Also someone said it was awkward and hard to thread onto the tripod. Not the case at all. Hang onto it by the battery and screw the light into the tripod. The last thing is the availability review. Someone gave it 3 stars because it took them 10 stores to find it. Just go into your local Home Depot and have them special order it from Ridgid. I'm not talking about having it shipped to store or shipped to home from homedepot.com.....My local store called Ridgid up and special ordered it from them and Ridgid sent it right to my local Home Depot for me to pick up within a few days.

I bought this with the tripod and can set it up in a room and paint 3 walls without moving the light. its LED so its a white light and you can see all the imperfections in the finish before you paint, because once you paint its harder to sand. I've had halogen lights for years and they just don't work like this one. i also love the option of battery of plug in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A battery powered spot light I have used this light just a couple times but am thoroughly impressed. It was able to light up my backyard as well as out hard wired lights. I used it to remove the running boards on my Yukon XL and didn't have to move it other than side to side to be able to see under the whole truck. I can't wait to use it camping and it will be great in the future for working on the car.

I use it on my adjustable Ridgid tri-pod to provide light in my shop when I'm working on detailed projects. It is bright enough to light up whole sections of our yard. I love that it is dimable. It gives tons of light and is very rugged!
