Make the DEWALT DC527 18 Volt NiCad Fluorescent Area Light the first light you reach for in the dark. The 13 watt fluorescent bulb lights up for a work area for hours on a single charge without getting warm and the "twist-and-lock" lens cover allows efficient and simple bulb changes. It’s light weight with a stable base and easy to hang from its pull-out hook. Use it with either your lithium-ion or NiCAD DEWALT 18 volt batteries in any place you need a bright, portable light.
From the Manufacturer
The DEWALT DC527 18-volt Area Light is built to take the rough handling of a professional jobsite. Inside the rugged, resilient, dust-and-dirt resistant housing is a 13-watt fluorescent bulb that shines bright, but runs much cooler than other types of bulbs found on the job site. In fact, this light has become a favorite with a wide range of trades people, including carpenters, plumbers, electricians, HVAC contractors, millwrights, and marine and automobile mechanics. It is a tool you’ll appreciate when working in small, cramped spaces, such as attics, crawlspaces, closets and under decks and porches. The light runs on either a lithium-ion or NiCad 18-volt DEWALT battery, and will provide about 3-1/2 hours of illumination on a single charge. It features an over-molded lens cover that you can twist off for easy bulb changes; no tools required and a pre-heat circuit, which helps eliminate blackening that often occurs around the base of fluorescent bulbs. The light will stand on its own for hands-free working, but it also has a telescoping, 360-degree swivel hook for hanging from an overhead pipe, wire, joist or other object up to 2 inches thick. Also, built into the light is a unique pre-heat circuit that prevents blackening that often occurs around the base of fluorescent bulbs. The DC527 18-volt Area Light is backed by a DEWALT 90-day money-back guarantee, full one-year service contract, and three-year limited warranty. Battery and charger are sold separately.
