The Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 12 LED Flashlight (DML801) shines in more ways than one, but it does have one flaw.

I have had this light for review for over a month now, and I have used it a lot. My work shop is about fifty yards from my house, so I have to walk that distance without any illumination at night. I also don’t have any power installed in there yet, so I have been depending on extension cords ran from the house, and battery powered lighting units.

DEWALT 20-Volt Max Cordless Grease Gun Review (DCGG571B)

The Dewalt Cordless Grease Gun offers continuous flow

Through high school and even a few years after I graduated, I worked in an auto body/mechanic shop. Nearly every day I had to grease car and truck bearings, and I hated it. I really disliked constantly moving that lever up and down, up and down, up and down. Other than working with fiberglass, it was my least favorite job to do. Fast forward twenty three years, and look how far technology has come. We tried the Dewalt Cordless Grease Gun (Model# DCGG571B), and this is what we thought.
