It’s made from aluminum alloy and features a bright red color, making it suitable for industrial applications such as welding and cutting. It has a power indicator light that glows green when the batteries are fully charged, and turns off completely when they’re empty.

This tool runs on Ryobi’s One+ system, which means that it can be used with a wide range of Ryobi products. These include drills, chainsaws, and many other types of cordless tools.
They all utilize the same battery type, so no need to worry about having multiple chargers or batteries. If you own other One+ tools, this light is an excellent addition to your collection.
Ryobi is a Japanese manufacturer of power tools and outdoor products. The company was founded in 1924, and soon began manufacturing motorized garden equipment.
In the 1960s, they released their first portable electric drill, which set a new standard for portability and performance. Ryobi is a subsidiary of Techtronic Industries (TTI), a Hong-Kong based multinational company headquartered in Hong Kong.
The Ryobi 18V One+ System was launched in 2011, with the intent of providing a wide range of cordless, lithium-ion powered tools that can all utilize the same batteries and chargers. This saves consumers from having to purchase additional parts, and provides a simplified product line.
Today, the Ryobi One+ system is one of the most popular power tool brands on the market, competing with other major players like Black and Decker and DeWalt.
This system contains over 30 tools, from drills to sanders and more. The range of products available allows for a wide range of applications, from home repair and gardening to automotive work.
The Ryobi 18V One+ LED Workbench Light is a power tool from the Ryobi One+ collection, and can be used with other One+ tools. The battery type is also compatible with other Ryobi power tools.
The Ryobi 18V One+ LED Workbench Light uses multiple high-intensity LEDs to provide a bright and even field of light. A fluorescent tube can also be attached, allowing for the light to be used as task lighting.
This tool is typically used in work areas like garages and workshops. It provides bright lighting without generating heat, so it’s safe to leave on for extended periods of time without fear of setting anything on fire.
Its lightweight and small size make it easy to transport and store when not in use. This is especially beneficial because it doesn’t require any bulky or heavy light bulbs that can be difficult to find when they burn out.
The light has three different brightness settings to allow for maximum flexibility. The first setting provides a general lighting for an entire room, the second setting is ideal for detailed work like doing mechanical repairs or hobby work, and the third setting is good for exposing deeper areas like crawl spaces and attics.
The Ryobi One+ LED Worklight is extremely easy to use. Simply press the power button to turn the light on, then adjust the brightness setting using the selector switch.
Battery and Charger Information:
The Ryobi One+ LED Worklight uses the Ryobi 18V lithium-ion battery platform. This means that over 30 different tools can be used with this one battery type.
This makes buying additional batteries easy, since they can be purchased from any major retailer. Ryobi sells a wide range of battery models, so no matter what the task at hand may be, the right battery type can be found.
This tool requires the Ryobi 18V ONE+ 4.0Ah Battery for maximum runtime.
This is not included with the worklight, and must be purchased separately. The battery can be charged using the BC610 One+ 4A Fast Charger, or the older BC1000.
The included battery indicator flashes green, yellow, and red to indicate the charge level. It has not yet been invented that is able to predict exactly when the battery will die, but the yellow and red warning lights at least let you know to start looking for a replacement soon.
In case of a fall, the Ryobi 18V ONE+ LED Worklight has an adjustable guard to prevent the light from directly shining in your eyes, and protecting them from any danger. No specific safety certification exists for this type of tool, but it’s designed to be handled by anyone of any age.
What’s in the Box:
The Ryobi One+ 18V ONE+ LED Worklight is sold as a standalone item, and does not include any other items. The package includes the tool, one battery, one battery charger, and the necessary cords.
It also contains an instruction manual and information about One+ batteries and chargers.
The Ryobi ONE+ 18V ONE+ LED Worklight comes with a standard One+ 3-year warranty. This warranty covers any defects that cause the tool to malfunction, but it doesn’t cover any damage caused by the user.
