May check this out later today. What's up with the Item page descriptions. It's a 40V 2000 lumen light that says this in the Overview

"OVERVIEW
With 2500 lumens and 5K color temperature of bright white light, the Kobalt 80-volt hybrid work light is perfect for indoor and outdoor use in work spaces, garages, patios, camping and more. A fully-charged 80-volt battery provides up to 14 hours of runtime, and when the task requires longer use, it also works with a standard AC 120V electrical outlet. "


Edit: Never mind , just noticed battery and charger Sold separately. Listed in OP I just missed it.

I just picked one of these up. My Lowes had at least four or five left and brickseek was showing a lot of stock at other stores in my area. I've already got a 40V battery and charger from another tool, so this was a bit of a no brainer for me.

I already have another corded work light, but the cord can be such a pain sometimes - working in the attic, or working in a room where the power is off. Definitely worth getting a battery operated work light.

Compared to Milwaukee and DeWalt lights, Ryobi and Kobalt work lights are cheap at regular price. Too bad Kobalt did not make this more universal to use with their 18 and 40v batteries, but the corded 120v is a plus.

So I had a 2ah battery from a hedge trimmer I never use. Picked this up since I'm a flashlight junkie.

This thing is BRIGHT. Initial impressions are good. Now to decide if I want to flip the $120 mower for a bigger battery!

Yeah, I turned it on and right back off like a dummy! When it came time to actually use it, no bueno.

$31.57 is what I saw most everywhere, but sometimes there is an in store manager special once these go non-stock. There is a methodology to the price tags and date, that once you learn how to read, you will know when any item is about to go non-stock and a department manager can sell it down to 90% off. To save me a lot of typing, just ask a department manager to show you how.
