WorkStar® 2000 Beam Comparison ThumbnailWorkStar® 2000 Beam Comparison
The Maxxeon WorkStar® 2000 series is called the Technician's/Hunter's/GearHead's Floodlight for a reason. You clearly see why from the beam comparison photo. It has a very smooth beam of pure white light, without any hot or dark spots. Plus it's big! The beam is twice as wide as the distance from the head to the surface, so you can do more work without repositioning the light. Which means - you too can Master the Dark.

Testimonial: Tommy Webb, Installation Technician, Dueco, Inc.

I've owned just about every type of work light known to man and I'm old enough to remember the old incandescent bulbs with the cage around them. Every time a new light comes my way it's typically an improvement but nothing that would get me excited about owning a new work light.

My last cordless LED worked ok and was bright, but the magnetic mount didn't hold well. Either the light wouldn't stay in the magnetic holder or the magnet was too weak to maintain a proper hold on whatever metal attachment I decided to use. The weak magnet resulted in more than a few drops and broken wires internally or damaged circuit boards. Then there was the issue of the plastic lens hazing over if it got near a mist of solvent used to clean parts. These issues caused me to start looking for a better replacement for my rechargeable LED work light. After an exhaustive internet search and reading countless user reviews of various popular LED cordless work lights, I. I stumbled upon the Maxxeon WorkStar 2000.

If you think it looks unlike any other rechargeable work light you've ever seen that's because it is unlike any rechargeable work light like you've ever used.

I received one of the WorkStar 2000 floodlights a little over two weeks ago and immediately put it to use. My job duties involve installing power take off units and clutch pumps on utility vehicles on a daily basis which means working under truck chassis and under the hoods in areas that almost always demand a good work light unless you like busting knuckles in the dark. The WorkStar 2000's 90 out the front lumens on low or 270 lumens on hi light up the darkest areas with a nice beam of light that out shines (pardon the pun) any led work light I've ever used. The 360 degree rotation in the neck and 180 degree tilting head make sure you can point the light beam exactly where you need it.

The two magnets on the back of the Workstar are powerful and hold the light very well on anything metal. I've even knocked it around with wrenches and air tools while attached to a truck chassis and the magnets keep the light in place. If your work space doesn't allow for the magnets to be used there is also a retractable hook in the base and the ability to mount the light to a tripod. I've found the retractable hook to be quite useful doing under hood work and the tripod mount is excellent for flat non-metallic surfaces. Maxxeon has a tripod mount that attaches via a suction cup which works very well. I've found myself attaching the light to windshields for interior cab work and using the suction cup tripod mount on aluminum body panels.

Maxxeon claims a run time of 2 hours on hi and 8 + on low. I was tempted to turn my WorkStar 2000 on and time those claims, however I instead wanted a "real world" evaluation of this lamps performance.

Typically during a work day I'll use my work light as needed and turn it off if I need to walk away from the job for such things as picking up parts, going on breaks, stopping to help out a co-worker with a task, etc. so I've used the WorkStar 2000 during my 10 hour work days just as I would any other rechargeable work light. I'll put it on hi as I need it, leave it on while working under a chassis or hood, and turn it off if I need to walk away from the job for more than a few minutes or going on my lunch break.

The low setting on the WorkStar 2000 is bright enough for most any task I perform during a workday but there are occasions where the 270 Lumens the hi setting provides are needed. Whatever the situations have required I've always made it through a 10 hour shift with a single charge on the light.

Charge for about 3.5 hours when I get home and the WorkStar 2000 is ready to go for another 10 hour shift. I'd have to bet that Maxxeon's run time claims are accurate given my experience. Whatever your profession, if you use rechargeable work lights or have a need for one, before you step foot on the next tool truck you see or visit a local hardware store you'd be doing yourself a favor to order a WorkStar 2000 from Maxxeon.com or find a distributor near you.
