Surprised by the amount of bright light this torch gives off - enough to light up a room when beam is bounced off a ceiling. Equally impressive as a conventional torch, with the benefit of working off my XR batteries, and with very little drain on my 4.0ah batteries.
The torch stands securely on its end, and the torch ‘head’ can be positioned through just over 90 degrees of travel.
Superb tool to have! Mine came as part of a kit and, to be honest, I probably would not have considered buying it individually - but, having used it now, I would strongly recommend anyone who uses XL batteries to get one.
I cannot think of anything that I would consider wrong with this torch.

Very bright and little drain on batteries. Excellent torch particularly if you already have spare batteries with other devices.
Additional batteries are expensive.

Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the 18V XR Li-Ion LED Pivot Light

  1. Nige asked on
    Can you confirm that the torch will operate fine using a 18v 1.3ah DCB185 battery pack. I'm looking to buy one and already have the battery's but was a little concened that the 1.3ah might reduce the performance considerably.
    1. ivath0 replied on
      Mine uses 18v 1.5ah and it is an excellent torch. I would expect the 18v 1.3ah pack to work (same voltage) but just need to be charged more frequently.
      Hope that helps!
    2. Jeremy replied on
      It will work fine but will require charging more often than any of the larger batteries, I run mine with the 3 & 4Ah and they run for a very long time, I don 't leave it on when I don't need it and it will last all day with a single battery.
  2. A asked on
    How long would a fully charged 1.5 ah battery last on average
    1. Mitchell replied on
      Couldn't say to be honest I only use the 4.0 ah battery's! It also depends on what tool you are using the battery with! E.g 4 inch grinder uses the power a lot quicker than say the torch would!
    2. Andrew replied on
      I agree with Mitchell its impossible to say I also use only 4.0ah but find them amazing I work with them all day everyday and rarely do I have to charge them prior to finishing the day. Grinder and Saw both use power a lot faster.
    3. Jeremy replied on
      Sorry as the others mention it depends on the battery (I use a 4.0aph battery) and how much you use it. I have used mine all day with no issues but I do swop batteries as I work. The main thing to remember is to charge the batteries after use so they are ready for the next job.
  3. Jason asked on
    My torch seems to flash after its been in use for 10mins or so, how do I solve this problem or is it a faulty light?
    1. Elliot replied on
      Sounds faulty, mine is rock solid for hours. Maybe try another lion pack first?
    2. Paul replied on
      Mine lasts for hours you need to return it for repair if over 14 days old replacement if under
    3. Rob replied on
      Mine lasts for hours too.
      Looks like you'll need to get an exchange.

    4. John replied on
      Mine is fine and will stay on for hours. try another battery. if still the same its faulty
