Limp goose neck
Why design a goose neck light with a flex neck that will not hold up the light? The flex is so weak, it is stable only when the light is directly over the battery. I would have expected a lower weight lamp and stronger neck to shine lite at odd angles in tight spaces. A table lamp is as useful as this goose neck light. I hope I can return it.

    Super versatile light
    I use This light For all kinds of things but mainly for working on my car, works great for the engine compartment and under the dash and any where else. Awesome light especially for the price, I would definitely recommend having at least a 4ah battery because anything lighter it will be hard to stand on it’s own

      Exactly what I needed and expected. Flexible neck with bright light. I have only used the flood light side and it is great. With a 3 ah battery attached, the unit will stand on it's own if you don't extend the neck too far over the base. I keep this light handy in the shop and grab it often to help light up tasks everywhere. Very convenient and easy to use!

      the flexible part doesn't hold up the light and a 4ah battery is not heavy enough to hold the light up. I have had the light less than 1 week (here is a video link https://photos.app.goo.gl/GRbSgSnEPnkAMVSz5) Luckily the light did not break!

        Pros: Works with Ridgid 18V batteries. Easy to turn on and off. Cons: Tips over if arm is extended at all, at least with a standard battery. I have to clamp it to the workbench. Arm droops if anywhere near fully extended. Arm droops from tool vibrations. Not particularly bright in area mode.

        I was going to give this light four stars, but after using it a bit more and figuring out how best to use it in different situations, it would be dishonest of me to give it anything less than five stars. For what I use it for, it is perfect, and I couldn't ask for anything better. It works as a desk lamp, a flashlight, and it is easily manipulated to use in almost any situation. I'm tempted to buy an extra one for travel use.

          I am building an HO scale model railroad. I have been under it, soldering wires over my head for a while. Lighting has always been an issue with my old eyes. This light is like a miracle for this work. Set it up on the floor and have all the light I could want. I will also use it for working on rolling stock and buildings on the bench as I am sure it will be great for that also. I have Ridgid tools so have three of the big 4.0 batteries already. The heavy battery works well in this and lasts a very long time.

          Long Run Time!
          This LED work light is really versatile, and perfect for up-close projects in low lighting environments. The 170 lumen output isn't super bright, but it's great for working under a sink or reducing shadows on a workbench. The two modes are easy to use, just swivel the head to go from floodlight to spotlight. The floodlight has very even coverage thanks to the diffuser. The spotlight has fairly even coverage too, but at some distances there is a bit of a dead spot in the center. The flexible neck allows for great adjustability for aiming the light output. It can be wrapped around a pipe, hung over a rafter, or use the battery for a base. Keep in mind that a bigger 4 or 5 Ah battery helps keep the center of gravity closer to the base, otherwise it will tip over easily when the neck is extended. Speaking of batteries, the run time on this light is fantastic. Ridgid lists the spec at over 20 hours for a 4 Ah battery. I used mine for a few hours with my 5 Ah battery, and the battery status bars didn't drop a single LED over that time period.

          Handy work light
          Because this light is cordless it is easy to place it in convenient locations to shine light on your work. It has a flexible stalk from the battery to the light so it is easy to point it in different directions. You can even twist the stalk around something to hold it. The end with the light in it can be rotated around 180 degrees to change from a spot light to an area light.

          Very Bright, Spot and Flood Modes, Highly Adjustable
          If you need a hands free light and already have Ridgid's 18 volt battery packs, this LED light is a good option. The light cast by the single LED is as bright as any regular 60W bulb, and it's a bright white light that casts no heat. This package is the tool only, so you will already have to own Ridgid 18V battery packs and a charger. On a single basic 2AH pack this light will run all day long and then some. You have the option of using this as a flood light or a spot light for pinpoint lighting. Just rotate the light head to switch between modes. The flex arm wraps around pipes, 2x4s or can be bent to make a base for itself. I have found this very useful under the hood of any vehicle, under the chassis, in trusses for added light and of course under sinks for plumbing. There is one flaw in the design and that is, even with the battery pack attached the light will tip itself over if you fully extended the arm. I solved this by twisting the arm to make it's own base and it stays solid. Overall it's a good light, feels durable, it just needs some work on the stability of the base.
