About This Product

Vision meets versatility - the ultra-adaptable COAST PM300 work light, featuring a 360 degree swinging handle and the COAST optic that rotates its twist-focusing beam to deliver broad lighting flexibility. With a handle that doubles as a stand, the light's magnetic mount and single-button control for 3 output modes make it the do-anything workplace workhorse. The COAST PM300 is designed to provide great work light in any environment. You can attach it under the hood of your car, hang it from the rafters or carry it with you wherever you need it. The flood beam puts out a beautiful, consistent circle of light that reaches up to 1000 Lumens of light. The PM300 has 3-light modes of High, Medium and Low and is sold with 6 x AA alkaline batteries. With a simple twist of the bezel, transition the light to our spot beam that provides a tighter beam of light to see all the way across the room, up in the corners or down the hallway. With a 180 degree swivel head and a 360 degree handle/kickstand - the PM300 will put light anywhere you need it. The PM300 is dustproof and weatherproof to withstand the toughest work environments.

    Q:What is the Alkaline - Lithium Replacement battery vaguely identified on the package? Is it an AA or an 18650 or other number?

    Answer This Question

    A:  It is an AA

    by|Jan 13, 2022

      A:  If you're buying one, the Coast ZX955 or a standard 21700. If you already have a 18650, it should work as well, the fit won't be exact, as you may know.

      by|Feb 16, 2022

        A:  Hi Tommm! The PM300 can operate with either 6 AA batteries or our patented ZITHION-X™ rechargeable battery, which would be the ZX955 for this model. All the best, Bobby - COAST Expert

        by|Feb 2, 2022

          A:  Replacements are AA.

            Q:Where does the 1000 Lumen come from? According to Coast' website the PM300 only puts out 700 Lumens!

            A:  this confused me as well. the Coast packaging on the unit i bought at HD clearly says 1000 lumens. Yet the Coast website clearly states 700 lumens. Either Coast down rated the PM300 since, or forgot to update the website? Coast marketing dropped the ball

            by|Jan 3, 2022

              A:  1000 lumen version of the PM300 is the latest version. I know this because my local HD had both versions (700 and 1000 lumen) and the 1000 was dated 2021, 700 was dated 2019. I bought 1000 lm version, great light, not sure why Coast website not updated.

                A:  It comes from the marketing department. It works great and that is all that really matters.

                by|Dec 23, 2021

                  A:  I gave them as gifts last year to my brothers and they love them. So much I had to get one for my husband. They are very bright and the fact they stand up and also have a magnet is really the icing on the cake. I did have to re-glue the magnet in it's place but other than that I'm very happy with the purchase.

                        A:  Purchased 2, package indicates 700 Lumens! Not complaining about the light, just curious as to where the info came from. Two models; PM300, PM200, 700 and 500 Lumens respectively!

                          Q:How long can i keep the batteries in the light and avoid their corrosion?

                          Answer This Question

                          A:  Alkaline batteries are not the most stable form of energy and do run the risk of corrosion no matter the timeframe the batteries are in the flashlight. To reduce this risk, we do recommend to remove the batteries from the flashlight when it is not in use. A great trick is to put the batteries in a Ziploc bag and then rubber band them to the flashlight. This way the batteries are there in a time of need but you do not run a risk of corrosion in the flashlight. If you absolutely have to store the flashlight with the batteries in it, we would recommend using alkaline-replacement lithium batteries. All the best - Bobby, COAST Expert

                            Magnet is amazingly strong. I've had people actually think it was mounted just from how strong the magnet is. Hard to clean though

                              Bright and heavy. Magnet broke on first time using it. Magnet was only held by tiny screws.

                                Best Portable Light I have ever used
                                I've had this light for over a year and it is GREAT. It has 3 different light levels - high, medium and low. You can also focus the beam to be either a narrow beam or a wide angle. A great feature is how it can sit on it's own stand and turn the light on what you are working on. The bottom contains a super strong magnet that keeps the light attached to a metal object - great when you are working on a car. With the 6 AA batteries, the flashlight remains bright for a long time.

                                Melted battery case
                                I have been using this flashlight for well over a year - I use it when I tune pianos and it works really well. Today it was time for some new batteries so I changed them with the same Duracell batteries that were in it. I checked to make sure the batteries were in correctly by testing the flashlight - everything worked fine. Twenty minutes later I could not not pick up the flashlight because it was so hot - the inside of the flashlight was melting!
                                  You need this "Super Flashlight!"
                                  This well-built work light was so impressive I purchased 5 on sale at Home Depot. Bet the new version with the red power button. With the rechargeable Coast ZX955 battery, the light ran for 32 hours continuously at the low setting - with power remaining.

                                    Better than any railroad lantern that I have ever.
                                    This light is a absolute life saver not just saying that but it really is . As a freight conductor on a class 1 railroad . I have gone thru many of the lanterns furnished by the railroad and nothing can hold a candle to this light. Pun intended. I have used this light every night and it has literally changed the way I work. I can us both hands to mount the train and still have control of my light. The focus feature is great for spotting long distance signs and switches and for close in work between cars either leaving it on my wrist or putting it on a car with the magnet. I use it like a pointer on my wrist by putting it over my hand and letting the handle keep it there.. When I use it like this I have free use of my hands to grab the handles on the cars. The lanterns the railroad furnished have to be held or looped over your arm and are not nearly as bright or focused..One more thing is that I appreciate the light switch that once you turn it on the setting that you desire it takes just one click to turn it off and you don't have to toggle thru every setting.
