RIDGID GEN5X 18-Volt DUAL POWER CANNON LIGHT

There’s a reason they call this thing the “Cannon”. It packs such a large punch. I never thought I’d feel empowered holding a flashlight, but I can’t deny how impressive this thing is.

Okay so first impressions:

This light weighs 6 pounds without the battery. Every ounce is solid. I’ve had lights that felt weak when you shake it, ones that all the weight just came from the battery. not this thing. For once, a heavy tool is desirable to me.

PROS

  • Up to 2,500 Lumens with Variable Power Dial
  • Dual-powered
  • Backed by the Industry’s only Lifetime Service Agreement
  • Extended run-time-up to 30 hours of continuous run-time with 5.0Ah battery
  • 180 degree swivel head-unit can be positioned in multiple orientations to direct light where its needed
  • Dual power compatibility-works with RIDGID 18-Volt battery or included 12-Volt car adapter
  • On-board 1/4-20 thread-easily mount the unit to the RIDGID universal tripod
  • On-board cord retainer-for hanging the light upside down to illuminate hard to reach areas

 

CONS

  • No hook to quickly hang down from a ceiling.

FINAL THOUGHT,

As the Pros and Con results show, there’s not a lot that I can say I don’t like about it. RIDGID once again, hits it right out of the park. Also makes for a great gift giving idea for gifts under $100.
