dewalt dcl074-xj led work lightUniform illumination of the entire workspace! The DeWalt DCL074-XJ Jobsite Spotlight features a 360° beam, as well as a precision lens to provide clarity all around you. Its light intensity goes up to 5000 lumens and thanks to 3 positions, this lighting can be adjusted as needed (a first level at 1500 lumens and a second at 3200). With its sturdy cage, it’s fully equipped to withstand working environments (also with an IP54 water and dustproof rating), and it even has a tripod mount and hanging hook for easy use. It is as versatile as it is practical.

My opinion : This LED projector is really on top! I have been testing different ones for a while and out of all the models I have been able to test in real conditions, this DeWalt surpasses all the others in my eyes. Already, the 360° brilliance is incredible and at the power level, it’s nickel: it’s brilliant without blinding. The box is also a real success and, thanks to a Bluetooth connection, you can even control it remotely, with your smartphone. If I had to recommend just one, it would definitely be this one!

My opinion : Hyper powerful is the first thing that comes to mind when talking about this MeFard 100W! With its 12,000 lumens, it is also very difficult to find an equivalent on the market and when it comes to using it, the difference is clear. If you regularly need to illuminate large volumes of work, this is probably the model that will be most useful to you, especially since it knows how to become versatile with its different uses.

Makita DEADML805

Editor’s note: 3.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

makita deadml805 led work lightIdeal for construction sites, the Makita DEADML805 stands out from most LED floodlights with its 2 operating modes: it can be powered from the mains or the brand’s 18V battery. In the event of a longer working day than expected and a discharged battery, it is possible to continue using it. To see clearly, its light intensity is 750 lumens, with a minimum setting of 450 lumens. Compact and light (2.6 kg without battery), it is also easily adjustable through 360°. For use in all conditions, its XPT technology finally limits water and dust infiltration.

My opinion : The perfect mix! Construction lights that work on both battery and mains power are rare, and that’s reason enough to choose this model. It also has many advantages, such as its great maneuverability and its perfect solidity, worthy of the manufacturing quality of a brand like Makita. At “only” 750 lumens, it struggles a bit to compete with other models, but until your workspaces are huge, you won’t notice much of a difference.
