The DC020 cordless/corded fluorescent work light is the newest addition to the company’s existing family of work lights. It can be used wherever additional lighting is required to complete applications, such as dark areas, crawl spaces, and basements. The work light has a 38-W fluorescent bulb that is durable. According to the manufacturer, it also has a low-amp draw and runs at a much cooler temperature when compared to halogen portable work lights that produce intense heat and glaring light. The light can be powered by ac power and all of the company’s 12V-18V batteries, including the 18V Nano™ technology batteries. For additional jobsite power solutions, the DC020 is equipped with two ac power outlets, which help to eliminate the need for additional power strips. A pivoting support arm provides increased versatility, and the compact design allows the end user to easily transport, store, and set up the work light. For increased durability, the work light is designed with roll cage protection and a spring-loaded battery hold down to keep the batteries securely in place.
