          The Right Light
          This light is the best I used in a long time. The head will rotate into multiple positions and they click into place as well as flip up. There is even a hook for hanging. There are two levels of brightness and the light is broad covering the work area well. The base will hold it securely in any of the multiple positions . Add this to the fact that it uses the same batteries as my Rigid tools.

          Endless directions to point the light
          I have flashlights, a hanging trouble light, and a long “Tube” shaped work light that I can never get pointed in the right direction. I usually need someone to hold any of the above lights so that it points in the right direction in tight spaces. RIDGID’s cordless LED stick light has a pivoting and rotating head which allows me to point the light where it is needed without the assistance of a second person or having to hold the light in my hand. The LED surface can be folded in towards the handle which provides protection for the LED surface during transport or storage. The light stick has a high and low brightness setting. I am guessing the run time is determined by the Ah rating of the battery installed. The battery works as the base and anchors the light to any stable surface. This light works with all RIDGID 18V Batteries. The handle is similar to RIDGID’s tool handles, in that the handle/grip is covered with a gray rubberized material that helps secure your grip on the tool. There is a “Pull Hook” in the handle which can be pulled out of the handle and rotated if you need to hang the light. The overall construction is solid.

          LED screen pivots 175 degrees and rotates 265 degrees to illuminate tight spots
          Very, very handy light for tight spaces. The LED screen pivots 175 degrees and rotates 265 degrees to illuminate all kinds of small and hard to reach dark spots. It has 800 lumens, which is awesome for such a compact light. There is even a hanging hook. I like that I don't have to store a lot of bulky, leaky, heavy alkaline batteries, because I can just recharge a Ridgid battery pack that fits all my other tools.

          A Great Light For Any & All Projects
          I have an inventory of Ridgid 18V tools and the Stick Light is a great addition to the family. The LED light head pivots on both a horizontal and vertical plain directing illumination where desired. Operating on a rechargeable battery eliminates the need for maintaining a supply of dry cells. The 18V battery is a solid anchor for the tool. The light tower folds into the base for compact storage. An optional pull up hook for hanging the light for maximum project illumination. I recommend this Ridgid tool.

          Great Light
          This cordless LED light stick is a super light source. The LED lights will give plenty of light for working in a room or a small are. The heat output is nothing like the halogen shop lights that I have always used. The light is very versatile. It will swivel to face inmost all directions. It fold down to a compact position for storage. The battery makes a good base for placing it on a flat surface. There is a loop for hanging. there are two setting, a blinding full on, and a lower setting to save battery and work in a small place. I see this light as a needed addition to my work shop.

          The flashlight is light and bright. The loud click sound as you rotate it is very irritating
          This light is very bright and to lightweight to me. I used it with a 4.0ah battery and it did not seem heavy. This lost 2 stars from me because: The clicking sound as you rotate it is very annoying. I would not recommend changing orientation in a small confined space for that reason( in an area where by sound metere recorded 67db prior to use, the db jumped to 88 whenever I changed the orientation of the light. Another negative for me is the lack of protection for the light panel. Initially I wanted to use this as an emergency light in my car but due to the fear of the panel breaking or cracking I will keep it someplace where it will remain stationary. I used this while inspecting an attic and it is very bright. It has two modes high and Lo. I wish this had a thread so I could connect it to my Ridgid tripod. I am on the fence about recommending it due to the lack of protection for the panel and the loud clicking sound but in all in all when the power goes out this light will definitely come in handy but I would not recommend it for everyday use.

          Best 18volt Flashlight Style
          RIDGID R8696 Stick Light All I can say is this is a fantastic addition is to Ridgid's 18-volt line. The Light uses 24 LEDs for illumination, the Light head has 265° of rotation and pivots 175°, giving you a full option of positions for your work area. The Light also has a hanging hook built-in with a full 360°degrees of rotation. The Stick Light works with the full line of current and previous Ridgid's 18-volt batteries. The Light delivers 800 lumens on high and 400 lumens on low. With those Light levels you get approximately 7.5 hours run time at 800 lumens and approx. 15 hours at 400 lumens (run times are based on the use of the new 5ah max. output battery). The lumen levels are far and away better than any of the 18-volt flashlights I've tested and the Light provided is a true white light. Combine all of that with either a 3-year warranty or Ridgid's Lifetime Service Agreement (LSA), with registration, and you have a can't lose proposition.

          Bright Light; 2 brighnesses
          Another fine Ridgid product. The lamp head rotates 270 degrees, so you can shine it up, down, or from either side. In addition, it raises from a fully tucked position up and out 180 degrees. Between the combination of the two you can shine a light anywhere. It sits nicely on the base with a battery attached, or you can hang it from the retractable hook. The power trigger has Off/Full Power/Slightly dimmed light settings. This is a nice alternative to a flashlight as it lights an area as opposed to a spot.

          Exceeded expectations. Very bright and flexible design
          I already had a DeWalt stick light that was my go-to flashlight. But when I tried the new Ridgid model it corrected all the DeWalt shortcomings. Not only is the Ridgid light less weight, it’s brighter and the articulating head allow you to direct the light where you want it. The rotating neck has detents every 30 degrees or so and the head stays in the position you put it (unlike the Dewalt). In my test with a 2Ah battery the light ran for 3h:20m, from full to empty (on high). The lamp has 2 settings (High/Low). You might wonder why you would ever want a low setting. But actually, I found it quite useful. On the high setting the lamp is so bright, when using it for close work you get a lot of bounce back which can make it hard to see. The low setting is helpful for this, but I would even like a very low setting. Like for times when you are trying to see something inside a hole. I should also mention the hanger hook, which pulls out and allows you to hang the light from above. My Dewalt has a similar hook but it spins easily and makes it difficult to keep the light point where you want it. The Ridgid doesn’t have this issue. It’s able to hold the lamp exactly where you want it. The price ($50 at the time of this review) is very competitive with the other brands. The only thing I can’t comment on is longevity, since I’ve only had it a few weeks. I give it a solid “B+” grade.

          Nicely designed Ridgid Stick Light
          This review is for 18V RIdgit Stick Light, Product R8696. As delivered, this product is Tool Only. This light is not intended for use in the rain or other wet conditions. I am using it with the Ridgid R840085 Li Ion 18V, 27 Wh battery supplied with the Ridgid 18V tool set that I bought 11 years ago, the batteries supplied with that tool set still performing well. This light weighs only about 13.3 ounces without the battery and about 1 pound, 13.6 ounces with the R840085 battery. This Stick Light includes a self-contained steel hook that swivels for easy hanging. The lamp part of this light pivots 175 degrees and rotates 265 degrees so that finding the right position to cast light for the needed illumination area is easy. The trigger switch for this light has three intensity positions at 800, 400 and 0 lumens. The light color is described as "clear white". I would call it "daylight" color instead. This stick light is made in China. This Tool Only product has a three-year warranty. A free limited lifetime service agreement can be activated by registering the product. This is a great addition to my collection of very useful tools.
