Dim lighting is a handyman’s worst enemy. Even the simplest of projects can be made infinitely more difficult if you can’t actually see what it is you are doing. For the most part, folks can get by with their own small flashlights, but for projects in larger areas? Milwaukee’s M18 Radius light is the way to go.
This easy to use work lamp weighs just 10 pounds but can get as bright as 4,400 lumens, making it just as transportable as it is powerful. Built to work anywhere and in any condition, the M18 is equipped with a powerful and swappable battery pack that can go for up to 8 hours while the light itself can sustain serious drops, scuffs, and splashes of water. All of this makes setting up the lights – whether by hanging from the ceiling with the self centering metal hook, or just by setting on the ground – a much less worrisome project. Whatever it is you are afraid will happen to the light, don’t worry. It can take it. When it comes to controlling the M18 Radius lights, it is just as easy as pulling out your phone. Each and every one you set up within a worksite can be controlled remotely with a smartphone app. These lights, along with a couple other new models from Milwaukee, are due to be released this month. Prices for the M18 wills tart at $300. [Purchase]
