18-Volt ONE+ Dual Power 20-Watt LED Work Light – P720

The more and more I see Ryobi, the more and more I change my mind.  When I use to see Ryobi at Home Depot, I never gave them much thought.  On one job I was on, a guy brought the old Ryobi, blue tools and I started using them.  I have to say i was pretty impressed.  Now that I am seeing the new Ryobi stuff coming out, I really impressed and am loving their live of tools.  Well now they have the 18V Dual power LED work light.  Dual power because it can run of an 18V battery or plug in power which means you can buy this light and still use it, even if you don’t have a Ryobi battery.

Now I am not going to sit here and tell you its the brightest light I have ever seen because it’s not.  The light is a 20 watt LED work light.  However with LED, you don’t get that hot light which is perfect for the tighter spots so your not sweating you you know what off.  Yes the light is 20 watts, but it puts out 1,700 lumens which means this light does really shine and its a nice white light.  The head rotates 360° which means you can light up any area.  The base is not only a base good for flat areas, but you can also hang from a 2×4 or even hang from a nail.  Bottom line if you want a quality LED light that doesn’t break the bank, this Ryobi won’t disappoint you.

  1. In one of my recent HD trips, the sales guy showed the light off to me. As it was mounted to the wall, he only was able to shine it at the ceiling, and I was able to see a difference on the already well lit surface. and the light still had the information label on the cover.

    I was also told they are coming out with an angled finish nailer to replace the Ridgid currently sold at HD, as well as working out the kinks on their brush-less technology.

    I probably won’t switch all my tools over, but lights, fans, nailers here I come.

  2. I completely agree. I used to laugh at Ryobi, but the stuff they are turning out lately is very impressive. My favorite thing about Ryobi is that it has had the same battery platform since Jesus was on the job. I am a milwaukee and Dewalt fan but it seems like as soon as I get around to getting s few tools the battery comparability goes the way of the dodo. This light is on my list to buy along with the hybrid fan. Love the Hybrid power!

    • I will say it looks like Home Depot is moving the old Ryobi Nicad packs to non stock status. The spot where it usually is yellow stickered aka on clearance.

  3. like many I would laugh If I saw a guy bust out some roybi tools. But they have updated them and while they aren’t the most ergonomic or fastest or have the most power they simply just work. and for their price you can often times buy two kits for the same price as one.

  4. Seriously I wish someone at Milwaukee would copy this and put an M18 battery attachment on it. Your part of the same corporate family!!

  5. This light is awesome, i bought one for my dad who is a painter and uses ryobi 18v and he loves it.. i got him the fan too and he says he uses it all the time on the job
