New Festool SysLite DUO Outputs 8,000 Lumens Of Splendid LED Light

I don't know what it is about LED lights, but I am kind of obsessed with them, and when I tell you I am excited about the new SysLite DUO LED Work Light from Festool, I mean it. A lot of this excitements has to do with the insane amount of light it can put out.

Most of the jobsites I am working on only have temporary lights, which typically consists of a string of light bulbs down all the major halls. As soon as you leave a hall you are on your own for lighting, which usually means using a hot halogen light in a small room.

With 8,000 lumens of light and an 180-degree spread, the Festool SysLite DUO can easily light up just about any room you could put it in, and since the light has a color of 5000 Kelvin, it is almost light working under sunlight. Even the Milwaukee Cordless Flood Light can light up a room, and it is only around 1,100 lumens of light; image what 8,000 lumens can do.

One of the things I really like about Festool's new SysLite DUO LED work light, is that it is corded. I like to run as many cordless tools as possible, but if I am going to be needing a light all day long, I would much rather have it run off of AC power and not have to worry about the light going out during a precision cut. All that being said, it would have been nice if the light could run off a battery, even with less light output.

As Festool likes to overengineer all of their products, the SysLite has an IP 55 rating against dust and water intrusion and is housed in a tough exterior plastic shell. The 80 LED's are rated for 10,000 hours, which amounts to over 5 years of work (250 days @ 8 hours per day).

There are also plenty of mounting options included on the light in addition to the base which can be screwed to a ceiling or wall. A nail hook on the back can also be used to hang the light on a wall, or the SysLite can be hung from the ceiling with some rope or wire. An accessory Tripod can also be used to make the light more mobile and height adjustable.

At $300 for the SysLite DUO and $200 for the tripod (or $435 for the set), it is nowhere near as affordable as a $10 halogen work light, but if you want shadowless, high-quality low-energy, low-heat light to illuminate your projects, you are not going to find a price much better than this. - Amazon
