DeWalt 18v Flashlight
My next LED table lamp project will make use of the DeWalt 18 volt batteries from my DeWalt drill which I’ll post soon. I purchased the DeWalt DW908 flashlight for $21 to make the new lamp from.
I received the flashlight this week that I intend to convert and was really surprised at how good this light is and thought I’d pass it on to those who want a powerful search type light and are undecided on which one to get.
The light beam is broad and full, not a spot type beam. At 20 feet it’s about 5 feet in diameter with even edge to edge light. Outside it illuminates areas easily to 100 feet so if you’re searching for someone or animals etc, this is a great light.
