Milwaukee® Tool has expanded their Lighting Solutions with the introduction of a new family of Personal Lighting products. The new line-up includes the 700L Flashlight, Hard Hat Headlamp, and Pocket Flood Light, powered by REDLITHIUM® USB—a compact, removable battery technology. Also included in the lineup are two non-rechargeable products, a Penlight and a Headlamp.
“When Milwaukee initially broke into the lighting category in 2009 we saw a unique opportunity to pair our lithium-ion and cordless technologies with advanced lighting features, and we brought incredible innovation to larger area and task lighting needs. However, jobsite lighting runs the gamut from task and area, to smaller supplemental lighting (or personal lighting),” said Ben Cabot, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Now, we’re changing the game for the trades by offering a range of highly portable lighting solutions that can be carried, worn, and positioned by professionals who need quick access to light. Each of these new lighting solutions has been designed from the ground-up to meet and surpass the specific needs of the trades in durability, performance, and overall functionality.”
At the core of the three rechargeable solutions— the 700L Flashlight, Hard Hat Headlamp, and ROVER™ Pocket Flood Light—is Milwaukee’s new compact REDLITHIUM USB battery. It provides all day runtime (dependent on mode selection and based on a 10 hour workday) for ample light to get the job done. The battery is capable of being charged either on the product or on a separate charger with over 2,000 recharges to eliminate the dependency on disposable batteries in situations of extended use.
The USB Rechargeable 700L Flashlight (2110-21) delivers 700 lumens of TRUEVIEW™ High Definition Light output on its high mode, and can cast a beam up to 508.5′. TRUEVIEW Technology utilizes advanced LED technology and optical designs to deliver a consistent beam, optimized color temperature, and true representation of colors and detail. With the ability to run for up to 16 hours on one charge, the Flashlight adapts to the job at hand through a spot-to-flood sliding beam adjustment and three output modes: high, low, and strobe. The Flashlight’s body and lens is constructed of impact and chemical resistant aircraft aluminum, and with an IP67 rating it is dustproof and can be submersed in up to 3.28′ of water. The product measures 6.65″, weighs .5 pounds with battery and includes a USB Rechargeable 700L Flashlight, REDLITHIUM USB Battery, and Micro-USB cable.
Built for use on a traditional hard hat, the USB Rechargeable Hard Hat Headlamp (2111-21) features a rubber, slip-resistant strap and clips for easy attachment and a secure hold. It is capable of providing 475 lumens and up to 31 hours of runtime. The Headlamp has five light output modes for optimal brightness and runtime, including a Spot Flood Mode for a wider view of the surrounding area and to assist in viewing issues from far away. The light can be maneuvered in seven different positions and features 216° tilting motion to help users direct light where it’s needed most. Built to be impact and chemical resistant, the Headlamp is also IP54 rated for weather and dust protection and weighs .37 pounds with battery. The product includes a USB Rechargeable Hard Hat Headlamp, Strap, Hard Hat Clips, REDLITHIUM USB Battery, and Micro-USB cable.
The USB Rechargeable Rover Pocket Flood Light (2112-21) is designed with a dual magnet clip. It can stick, clip, and be carried practically anywhere. With the ability to deliver 445 lumens of light output, it features two light output modes for maximum brightness and up to 11 hours of runtime. Its impact and chemical resistant construction is also IP54 rated to protect against inclement weather and dust. The product measures 5.98″, weighs .36 pounds with battery, and includes a USB Rechargeable ROVER Pocket Flood Light, REDLITHIUM USB Battery, and Micro-USB cable.
“The recharging capabilities of these three personal lighting products will provide unmatched performance and durability for tradesmen, but we also wanted to offer a wide range of trade-focused solutions for all use-cases,” said Cabot. “For this reason, we’re also launching two non-rechargeable personal lighting solutions that outperform other products currently available to our users. They’ve been specifically engineered for the demands of the trades with features customized to the needs of these professionals.”
The non-rechargeable Penlight (2105) puts out 100 lumens of TRUEVIEW™ High Definition light, is IP67 rated for submersion in up to 3.28′ of water and protection from dust, and includes a protective rubber bite zone for occasional hands-free use. It has a runtime of three hours or more, measures 5.35″, weighs .14 pounds with battery, and includes Penlight, clip, and two AAA batteries. The lightweight and compact non-rechargeable Headlamp (2106) is designed with a micro fiber sweat-absorbing strap for all day comfort on the head. It is capable of providing 300 lumens with three light output modes so users will get up to 31 hours of continuous runtime. The headlamp is impact and chemical resistant, as well as weather and dust resistant. It weighs .19 pounds with battery and includes Headlamp, strap, hard hat clips, and three AAA batteries.
