Is it hybrid? Will it accept a battery or an extention cord?

Asked by Johndoe February 27, 2021

Answers

No. It uses the 18v battery only. It is a nice light. If you need a hybrid light the Ridgid panel light uses either battery or cord power. It is model R8694221.

Does it come work a battery. It says tool only?

If it says "Tool Only" that means you have to buy a battery separately.

The ones that plug in, do they charge the batteries as well? Or can they just run off both.

There is no plug on this light for AC or DC power on this light. Battery only.

The hooks are very strong, and will not break or pull off. As far as mounting in any position, upside down also, to any 2X the clips pull out and rotate around the 2X very snugly and it will not slip off. There is also a tripod mount as well as 2 screw holes, 2 inches center to center that you can mount this with

Hybrid GEN5X is top of line lighting! bought this unit yesterday for home use and DIY in the garage and its works great, with 1500 lumens it's bright and its adjustable from low to high brighting, You can detach the light from the base that is really convenient in some situations! I would recommend this product to my friends and family #TEAMRIDGID

I have been using the GEN5X 18-Volt Flood Light every night to go out and feed my horse. I have no lighting out at the corral or where I store my hay. It lights up the area brightly and does a better job then the bright lights in my ATV that I was using before I purchased the GEN5X 18-Volt Flood Light. Also most of the time i have been using this it has been anywhere between -20F to +10F degrees. I have been powering the light with a 4 Amp battery at about 15 minutes each night at these cold temps and get about 2 1/2 weeks of use before recharging the battery. I would say overall I am very pleased with the GEN5X 18-Volt Flood Light.

A great small portable light to take anywhere. This light provides a nice blast of LED sunshine when you need it and because it has such a small footprint you can place it just about anywhere you want. It was perfect when I installed a new faucet and I was adjusting the piping under the sink. I was able to place it in the corner of the cabinet and aim the light where I wanted. Much better than a traditional flashlight that will inevitably fall down and you lose your light. I like the dimming feature which allows you to get the brightness just get right considering where you are using it. It's rated at up to 1200 lumens and it's bright as heck if that is what you need. Battery usage was good. My 4.0 Ah battery ran it for hours with no significant drain even at full brightness. This light also connects to the Ridgid tripod which is a plus. This unit seems really solid and I found no quality issues on mine. It sure looks like it's made to last. I recommend this light.

Purchased the Rigid cordless flood light since I already have several 18 V Rigid batteries. The light is bright and the adjustable stand is perfect for working on projects.

I wonder if the one that I had burned too much power I had the biggest baddest battery that they had on it and it only lasted 10 minutes. I know it's not the battery because I can use their leaf blower at full blast for over an hour. Sorry I cannot recommend this product.
