To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am a true Dewalt fan and when I received this flashlight I was looking forward to once again receiving a top quality item. Although not totally disappointed I did note a few issues with this item that I had not experienced with other Dewalt products. Firstly the batteries fit into the flashlight but there is a little wiggle as they don't seem to seat themselves the entire way. This does not hamper the usage of the light as it burned brightly and lit up without hesitation. The other issue was the chrome hanger on the top of the flashlight it too seemed ill fitting with a rattle as well. This is not what I have come to expect from Dewalt. As far as the light and the switch mechanism they both earn high marks. The light is bright and the switch feels solid. It's just those pesky rattles that cheapen this light. Overall I would say this justifies the 4 star rating.
I've got a couple of the other type of light that Dewalt makes. This one really doesn't work for MY use. The light produced by this light is very bright, but focused very much in a narrow beam that will be useful for some people. But I find the light too bright in one spot, but not enough light spread out over wide enough of an area. Different uses for different people, I guess.
Great quality as one would expect from Dewalt. I have a ton of 5amp hour batteries and I have used my light for hours on end and still have 3 bars on my battery. Light is bright enough, not blinding. I keep one in my garage and one in my house for power outages. Buying a couple more to squirrel away.
I ordered this light with a drill/impact set to replace an aging Craftsman set. A major improvement in technology and brightness. The battery seems to last forever and the adjustable head makes working easier. Would recommend.
This doesn’t come with a battery! But if you have your own set already its perfect! Ive been using the same battery for 1month without having to charge it its great honestly and soooo ridiculously bright!
