can the left and right panels be turned up or down for ceiling and below floor lighting. ? how long can the light stay on w 18 v 4 amp battery ?
Asked by: DIY
It looks like you could mount it on a 90^ to the tripod, then you could aim the panels up and down. I'll try it when I get one!

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 4.7 out of 5 by 106.

I bought this thinking it would help me in dark situations. when first opened and used, I thought it was awesome. after the initial use I realized it would turn off by itself thinking maybe the battery died and I'd swapped it out for another one. then one day in a crawl space it went dark on me with a fully charged battery, swapped it anyway and it wouldn't turn back on. after about an hour it finally turned back on. for something that says it will last 14hrs on a single charge, it didn't even last one hr straight. I know this was a limited release but the light just isn't there just yet. I don't know if its because the hybrid technology or what but I returned it for refund since it was 3 weeks old. and don't get me wrong, this is an unbiased review. I have everythng ridgid in my van and stand by the rest of their products, just not this one, yet.

A great addition to my ridgid 18 volt tools. Puts out a lot of light and is much easier to use and quickly move around than a corded light. It has a more cool white light output (typical of LED flashlights / work lights) when compared to a halogen work light. Not sure if that will be a downside when doing detail work like finishing drywall or painting since I have not used it for those tasks yet. I only have 4 amp hour packs and have been ok with battery life but have not really timed how long they last. I would agree with other reviews that a handle on top would be nice.

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.

It doesn't get hot and is easy to move around. One of the best purchases I've made it a long time. Stumbled onto this great purchase when I just needed a cordless light for one specific job. The batteries don't last as long as proposed.....Get about 2hrs out of one 18v battery but that's not enough to not give it 5 stars. BRIGHTER THAN BRIGHT!

The versatility of being able to use a battery or an ext cord is amazing! Light is SUPER bright and is amazing on how it can be dimmed. Only improvement that I can see is if they were to put a handle on the top also as when I try to move it around sometimes I press the power button.

Works best on a tripod as it is a little awkward sitting on it's feet. Runs over an hour at full output on a 3AH battery. Disappointing that Ridged will not provide any run time expectations a full output. I called and emailed them. This is pretty standard information for most flashlights.
