The head rotates 360 degrees and folds 180, so the light can be pointed in nearly any direction and the lens can be faced inward to protect it when folded down. There’s a rotating hook for hanging which folds into the head, and the light is pretty stable sitting on the battery. I initially thought the included additional hook that attaches to the light on a cord was silly, but I ended up using it the first day. It is somewhat in the way once installed though, and I wish it was easier to detach.
The handle is comfortable with a non-slippery grip, but the switch is a little awkward. It’s hard to use with one hand, and trigger switch would be better.
I can’t tell how much abuse this will take. The lens seems vulnerable and the switch requires three strong presses to go from high-low-off. Otherwise the case and the movable joints seem quite sturdy and nicely made. I’m pretty happy with it so far.
The light falls off fairly quickly once you get out about 6 feet. It'll light up a completely dark room, but not to the point where it will take the place of work floods, etc. It would be perfect for working under a sink, under a car hood, or maybe as a backup desk lamp if the bulb in your swing-arm lamp goes out, etc.
In the picture, only one swivel point is obvious. There are actually two, making it easy to point the light in any direction including straight up.
Build: Solidly constructed, with enough weight that is does not feel "dainty". The swivel and pivot action has positive feel with no unwanted movement. It folds up very slim to fit easily in my tool bag. The LED lens cover does not seem very scratch resistant, however, but I do my best not to abuse it like any other flashlight. The push button positively clicks the high and low settings, but mine was a bit picky. If I did not perfectly click the low setting, it got stuck and required a flick of my finger to disengage it. Annoying at first, but it broke in after a while of use. Not enough reason to have sent it back, to me anyway. This light has survived a few short falls with no apparent damage and has maintained 100% functionality.
Ergonomics: The rubber contoured grip is comfortable, as with all other Makita tools. The power button is easily activated with gloves, and has enough tactile feel to distinguish it without looking. Also, it does not protrude from the body, so I have never had it accidentally engage while in my tool bag. Always a plus, eh? The integrated hook works pretty well, but I have not had a lot of use for it as of yet. It stores snugly in the body, so it is not in the way or does not get snagged on anything, which is appreciated. Regardless of the position of the head, it stands solidly upright on the battery base. The high and low function is great for close work applications, so you do not blind yourself from the glare while up close to objects. The light output is better than expected, as well as great run time. I have not timed it with either size battery, but I know for sure that with a 3.0 mAh it will last me through my work day and then some. Three days of moderate use is the most I've gotten from a 3.0mAh battery. As I said before, it also folds away nicely.
Overall: This light performs better than expected. As I have close to 10 or so batteries, this is also a great power outage light. If I ever get the chance, I'll time the battery life and post my results here. Great job, Makita.
As with all LXT tools, the price is only good if you have other LXT tools due to the battery and charger cost. If you only need a light I wouldn't suggest paying for the setup for just the light but if you already have a battery and charger then for me it's a great price for a well made light.
The high, low, off switch works well but it will take me a few more uses to get used to the switch placement. It's not necessarily in a bad place but I do find myself searching for it. Maybe if it stuck out a little more it would be easier to find. My finger goes to the trigger side (I use the Makita impact driver alot) and the switch on this is thumb side. No major issue but I guess I'm a creature of habit.
Summary: The fact that you can stand it on the battery and aim the light in any direction, it's very lightweight, great light output and low battery drain make this an outstanding light. I'll just need to remember to stop using my trigger finger to toggle the switch.

Light will not dim as battery is drained, it will shut off pretty abruptly.Read more
