RYOBI 18Volt ONE+™ Xenon HI-Beam™ Review
RYOBI 18Volt ONE+™ Xenon HI-Beam™
I had the pleasure of testing some new RYOBI 18 Volt cordless tools including their new Xenon HI-Beam™ flashlight. Most cordless manufacturers offer some type of work light as an accessory but RYOBI went a step further and they are offering a HUGE work light!
RYOBI P716 Features
- 35 Watt High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon bulb for maximum lighting
- 2,800 lumens of light output
- 60 minutes of run time per charge using P104 High Capacity Lithium-ion battery
- Lock-on allows light to be used continuously without holding trigger
- Easy hands-free operation vertically or horizontally
- Ergonomically designed and center balanced handle to reduce fatigue during extended periods of use
- Works with all Ryobi 18V ONE+™ batteries
- Battery: 18V (not included)
- Bulb: 35 Watt HID Xenon
- Lumens: 2,800
- Tool Weight: 2.5 lbs.
The RYOBI 18Volt ONE+™ Xenon HI-Beam™ is a large high intensity work light that produces a great deal of light. My first thought was this thing was made for jacking deer! It certainly generates lots of light for the darkest work environments.
The work light has a trigger and grip that is very similar to the other 18V drills that Ryobi offers. The battery fits into the bottom of the grip in the same way the drills work. It offers a trigger lock so you can lock the light in the on position if you want to set the light on a surface while you work. The front and back of the light have a soft plastic feel that protects the light from accidental impacts.
The RYOBI 18Volt ONE+™ Xenon HI-Beam™ (Model P716) work light works very well. I produces tons of light, it’s comfortable to hold and it works with all Ryobi 18V ONE+™ batteries. If you own 18V ONE+™ batteries and you’re in need of a large work light then I’d recommend considering this one.
The only negative from my point of view is the price point. Priced at $49.97 I think it’s a bit too expensive considering it does not come with a battery. If the $50 price tag included a battery (not necessarily a charger) then it would be a good deal.
If you want to buy this light it’s available at The Home Depot for $49.97. You can buy it online at The Home Depot here: One+ Xenon 18-Volt Spotlight
