Milwaukee M18 Rover Dual Power Flood Light 2360-20 Review: Features & Specifications
The Milwaukee M18 Rover dual flood light is a dual flood light which provides both flood lights at the same time. It uses two different types of LED’s (light emitting diodes) to produce its beam of light. One type produces a bright white color while the other produces a cool blue color. These LEDs are powerful enough to illuminate up to 20 feet away from your vehicle.
It is powered by two 18650 batteries which provide up to 70 hours of continuous use. The power supply unit contains a regulated 12V DC output, a microprocessor controlled constant current circuit, and a low dropout protection device. A single button controls all functions including on/off, brightness level adjustment, and charging status indication. There is also an indicator light located above the power switch.
The Milwaukee M18 Rover dual flood light comes with a carrying case and it weighs just over 1 pound. It measures approximately 4 inches wide x 3.5 inches tall x 0.6 inch deep when closed. It features a one year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship.
This is a high power light set that has been designed for professionals who need to work at night or in the dark. If you need something more powerful than a flashlight, but less complicated than a full-sized lighting rig, then this is the product for you. The price may be a bit steep, but it is definitely worth the money. It is a durable and resilient lighting rig with many great features, all of which are described below in further detail.
Simple to Use
One of the most commonly made criticisms of flood lights is that they are difficult to use. For those who have never used one before, there can be a bit of a learning curve. Fortunately, the Milwaukee M18 light has been designed to be simple and intuitive to use even for those with no experience.
The main control button is located at the top of the light and it cycles between on, off, and changing the brightness setting. A secondary button is located at the rear of the light. It turns the battery charge indicator light on and off. All that is required is to push them once and the desired setting is activated. This makes it very easy indeed to change any of these functions while working in the dark.
Durable & Reliable
This is a very durable and reliable product. It has been designed to resist damage from impacts, is waterproof, and even shock-proof. The LEDs within are also very reliable and are resistant to failure. The entire unit has been engineered to last for thousands of hours of use. If it ever does break, then it comes with a full one-year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship.
Two Flood Lights in One
The main selling point of this lighting rig is that it provides two flood lights in one. This is great news for those who already own a flashlight and simply want an additional flood light for when more light is needed. This also makes it a great choice for people who need two different types of lights. For example, electricians often use a flashlight when working near overhead wires and a flood light when working on the floor. Hunters and campers also often combine both types of lights.
With this model, they no longer need to purchase two separate products.
Built-In Battery Pack
The built-in battery pack is rechargeable and has a very long working life. It can also be quickly and easily detached from the light for when it needs to be replaced or recharged separately. This is both a blessing and a curse. It is great that the battery pack can be removed so that it can be recharged separately, but it can also be quite costly to replace it when it eventually dies. The Milwaukee M18 is the only one of these types of lights that lets users detach the battery, so it’s not really a deal breaker.
It would have been nice if it was easier to access the battery for replacement, but this is certainly not a deal breaker either.
The battery pack itself doesn’t just power the lights; it also houses them and protects them from damage. The lights are fully waterproof when attached to the battery pack. This is great for those who need their lights in wet and/or damp conditions. It is also good for those who simply want to prevent their lights from getting damaged if they drop them accidentally.
The M18 light can be easily attached to any type of clamp, hook, or other similar device. This provides it with a great deal of versatility, which is often necessary in the workplace. It is perfect for those who have to work in cramped conditions and need to move their lights around a lot. Alternatively, it can be attached to a tripod, monopod, or other device for greater stability when working on tasks that require a more sustained amount of light. The ability to easily clamp the light onto almost anything makes it perfect for both professional and hobbyist users alike.
The light is also magnetized, which means that it can be attached to any metal surface. This makes it perfect for use in a wide range of environments. It is especially useful for emergency workers who often have to work in the dark or otherwise precarious conditions. It will firmly stick to the side of an ambulance, fire truck, or any other type of vehicle. It can also be used as a work light in a home setting.
It can be stuck to any type of metal surface in the home or workplace.
The Milwaukee M18 is the only one of these types of lights that can be mounted on a tripod, which gives it a clear advantage over the others. The tripod that is included makes the light more versatile when working on a task that requires a sustained amount of light. It can easily be set up over a work station so that the light can be pointed in any direction as necessary.
The tripod is also great for those who want to work in a hands-free manner. This allows users to set the light down and then step away from it. This is useful for when working on more complex tasks or projects. The ability to keep both of your hands free while still having access to bright lights is a huge advantage, especially in industrial and commercial settings.
The tripod itself is sturdy and can be set up in a wide range of positions. It is also easy to adjust and has locks on each joint to prevent it from slipping or moving unexpectedly. This makes it more accurate for when you are trying to target the light in a specific direction. The fact that it can be folded up makes it more portable and easier to store when it is not in use.
The best thing about this Milwaukee M18 is that it has multiple power sources. It can be powered by either a battery or directly from a power outlet. This gives it a significant advantage over the other types of lights. The ability to choose between multiple power sources makes this light more versatile and useful in many different situations.
Being able to directly plug the light into the wall can save you a significant amount of time and effort. In some situations, it is much easier to simply plug the light in rather than having to change the batteries. This can be especially useful when you are working on a project that requires extended use of the light.
At the same time, it is much easier to have backup batteries in case the power goes out. If you are using the light for emergency purposes, such as during a power outage, then you will not have to worry about finding another power source. This gives you peace of mind, knowing that you will still be able to see regardless of what happens.
The main disadvantage of this light is the price. It is by far the most expensive of the bunch, though it is worth noting that it has multiple power sources which does make up for some of the price difference. This type of light is not meant for those who are on a tight budget and can’t afford to spend a lot on equipment.
