The two newest Worx brand 20-volt LED (light emitting diode) work lights from Positec USA Inc. are cordless.
The new Worx 20V multi-function LED light features five functions including a flashlight, lantern, desk lamp with hi/lo settings, and flashing emergency light. As a flashlight, the 5.6 lb. (with battery) Worx 20V multi-function LED light projects a beam of light that’s the equivalent of 130 lumens. The flashlight beam burns for 18 hours on a single charge of the 1.5 Ah (ampere hour) battery, according to the company.
When used as a lantern, the multifunction LED light telescopes and can be placed in a vertical position or angled right or left to 140 degrees. The surrounding light is ideal for camping, working beneath sinks or in attics, crawl spaces, engine compartments, boat hulls and other sheltered areas. In this configuration, the lantern generates 480 lumens, producing light for up to eight hours.
The Worx multifunctional light also can be used as a desk lamp with high/low settings. On high, it generates 440 lumens and runs for up to seven hours. In the low setting, it projects 210 lumens and will run up to 18 hours.
In emergency mode, the multifunction LED will blink on and off. The flashlight is in the vertical position and the LED is fully extended. This feature is useful in roadside emergencies or other applications to signal distress. In this function, the LED has 480 lumens and operates up to 12 hours.
The Worx multifunction LED Light (WX027L, $69.99) includes one, 1.5 Ah 20V MAX Lithium battery and a 5-hour charger. The LED light is covered by the Worx three-year warranty. It’s available at worx.com.
The Worx 20V Max lithium-ion worksite light generates 1500 lumens, which is the equivalent of a 100 watt light bulb. It’s a substitute for the old incandescent trouble light and it burns cooler, according to the company.
The cord free, go-anywhere 20V worksite light weighs 5.6 lbs. with battery. A built-in hook can be used to hang the worksite light from the hood of a vehicle to see into an engine compartment, a closet rod to paint its interior, an I-beam in the basement when installing ceiling panels, and many more hook-hanging applications. The work light also can be mounted to a conventional tripod.
The worksite light is housed in a tubular frame with a rigid foot plate as its base. The frame incorporates a comfortable foam grip, which serves as a carrying handle. The high-performance, tempered-glass LED light’s frame rotates north to south 360 degrees. The light powers on by a push-button on/off switch.
When using a Worx 1.5 Ah Max lithium battery, run time is approximately 90 minutes; with a 2 Ah battery, it’s two hours; and with the Worx 4.0 Ah battery, the light will operate up to four hours continuously.
