Milwaukee was the first power tool manufacturer to change the way we look at Job Site lighting. Before Milwaukee redesigned the category, job site lighting was an afterthought. It was that tool that came with the combo kit to increase the number of tools and make it look more appealing to the buyer. Milwaukee saw a need and designed a whole new lighting world for the tradesman. So if you are looking for a small rechargeable light, the Milwaukee Rover light might be your solution.

Milwaukee Rover Light – First Impressions
The light is surprisingly bright for its size. I wouldn't expect the output that it produces. The Rover is small and lightweight. I like how you can easily set it up at any angle on a flat surface or use the magnet, carabiner or loop on an uneven surface.
I am not a fan of rechargeable batteries since you will have downtime recharging a dead battery. However, I love the fact you can swap out batteries and not have any downtime. I am also a fan that you can get an 80% charge in about an hour.
Milwaukee Rover Light – Final Thoughts
Overall this is a good light. I love the build quality and love all the different ways you can direct the light. Having the rechargeable battery has its pros and cons. If you are looking for a bright light that is small and has many viewing options, this is a great light.
