Questions & Answers

Does this include the GEN2 power source?

I currently have a GEN1 power source however it does not have the small round plug on it. I don't believe it is compatible with the mat. Does this Mat Light include a GEN2 power source?
Asked by: Dug
It comes with a power source that has the round plug on the side, and the light mat DOES require that round plug. However, as for the USB port this new power source is a step down because is only outputs 1.0 am to the USB port and my old ones that look like your photo are marked as 2.1 amps for USB.

Does the mat have some sort of holder for the battery when hanging? Silly if not, then battery would hang unsupported.

Home Depot: since this is a new product please make this suggestion/update to RIDGID before product release for high success vs. mediocre, until version 2.0 correction.
Asked by: MagicHands0419
Yes, there is a clip on the part that attaches to the battery and a loop to attach the battery on the mat for hanging.

Is this a GEN2 power source, as the current version (GEN1) only has one USB port, and does not have any 3.5mm (?) jack or port on the side for the power cable to plug into as shown in the photo? And when will these newer versions be available to purchase separately?
Asked by: MagicHands0419
The power sources are not marked Gen1, Gen2, etc, but I have two of the RIDGID USB Power Sources (https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-18-Volt-USB-Portable-Power-Source-with-Activate-Button-AC86072B/206936434 ... the packages had model # AC86072B on them but they are marked R86072) without the round side jack and they each have a single USB port that will output 2.1 amps. This new light comes with a different model number power source (marked as R86073B) and it has the side jack as well as a single USB port that is rated at 1.0 amp. I know there was a prior model that I think was designed to power a heated coat and it sounds similar to this new model that comes with this light, but I'm not certain they are they same and I don't have that one so I don't know what model # it was. Hopefully this helps you.

18-Volt LED Mat Light is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.

Not only is this new lighting unit versatile in many ways, it's also SUPER bright! At times we do a lot of service work out of our RIDGID rolling tool systems. This baby rolls right up and is ready to shine when and where needed - very portable! I can see many other uses as well... hangs on wall, under car, wrap up high around column with no need for a tripod. Very nice, keep up the great work RIDGID!!

I wish I could leave two different reviews, one for the light and one for the power source/batter adapter. I really like the light. It is really going to be great for working on things up close or in a tight space because the bright light cast is very diffused and the profile is so thin and flexible. It seems well made and I just hope that if it ever fails I will have no issues getting service through the LSA. I have many tools registered, but have not yet needed the service. As for durability, the most likely failure points I see are the permanently attached cord or the internal wiring that will be bent back and forth as it is rolled and unrolled for the umpteenth time. On to what I dislike... the power source's USB port is only rated for 1 amp. That's 5 watts, which is a fairly slow USB charger by today's standards. My other RIDGID 18V USB power sources (purchased as standalone products and don't have the additional round side port that this light requires) output 2.1 amps via USB, which is what I reasonably expected in this new product. I feel this really limits the benefit of the USB port in this case. The light is a solid performer and if it is only going to be used as a light or one doesn't expect/need fast USB charging, then this won't be an issue.

I think this is going to be perfect for lots of different applications around my shop and home, but I will say I definitely don't recommend staring directly at it when you first turn it on like I did! haha. My wife and I both let out a shout when we first turned it on in our darkened living room! I like that it has 3 settings (really intense, less intense, and not so intense) and I like that it is flexible and can be laid flat or placed standing up (like in photo below). I just used it in my attic to inspect some water damage and it was perfect for getting in awkward places. It can either be placed in the center of a work space to provide enough light to evenly see everything around you or placed right next to something for shining a bunch of light. I turned off all of the lights in my garage (no windows) and took 2 pictures below. The first is a picture is standing in front of the 18-volt LED Mat Light and the second is standing behind it to show you how much light it puts out in the garage. The only small complaint was that walking around an attic with tools, mat light, and battery all felt like a balancing act, but I will say that clipping the battery to the mat light helps it not feel as awkward when moving around.

I got this light for using underneath cars and trucks in the garage and also for around the house when you need light in unique areas. I was completely blown away by how bright the light itself is, but also how durable and well built it is. I dropped it off of a hook on the ceiling (it was hooked to a 5.0ah battery) and it didn't even flicker when it hit the floor. You can also fold it into a circular or square shape and light an entire room at all angles. Awesome tool for any work area!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 tools in one This is a great Idea for a light I am very impressed with it. The light can be rolled up with led panels out and put in the center of a room for full light with 3x power settings or it can be used as I did, under a car or other tight spaces to get a lot of light where you need it. I also said 2 tools in one because the 18v head has a U.S.B. plug so you can charge your phone or other device and the light will unplug from the charge head so you can have a portable charging station but leave the light at home. So 2 tools in one.

I've had it for just under a month and whether I'm on the job or in the cabinet shop, it is exceptionally functional! I never knew how attached I would be to this light until I started using it. It has become my go to light, way better than any other light on the market. It's light, durable and very bright! I was even impressed with the battery clip it came with, being able to attach a usb cable to charge your phone is a huge plus! Its great to place on the base of a cabinet while installing hinges, hang on the wall while painting or even put on the floor when sanding a unit. The light has three different brightness modes, I prefer the brightest. For someone who builds and finishes cabinets, this light is great to see imperfections up close. It also rolls up into a small roll with Velcro and packs into tight spaces for transportation. I can see myself getting another in the future, no complaints so far!
