Following on from our exclusive article about the PowerMaxx BS Quick drill/driver (and video on Toolstop TV), we can now reveal that Metabo is imminently launching two new types of LED lamp to their job light range. These will be a fantastic addition to any Metabo cordless power tool user!

Metabo LED lights ULA SLA

First up, the PowerMaxx 14.4-18 SLA LED Inspection Lamp.

Metabo SLA LED light
This is powered by Metabo's 14.4v or 18v li-ion juice packs (up to the new 5.2Ah versions) and features a bright LED bulbwhich will provide you with a lovely amount of equal illumination while being extremely efficient with the power it draws from the battery. It's also lightweight and highly portable, while also being robust thanks to the aluminium die-cast lamp housing.

This is sensible considering where the lamp is intended to be used, ie. construction sites!

The LED lamp can be turned and swivelled for almost infitite positions and will give you around 12 hours of illumination on a fully charged 18v 5.2Ah battery. And you can hang it wherever you are thanks to the fitted hanging hook.

The SLA LED is also available in a form factor that accepts Metabo's 10.8v batteries, including 4Ah and the new 2Ah versions.

See it in action on Toolstop TV by clicking here or watching in the player below.


Next up, the PowerMaxx ULA LED.

Like it's bigger brother LED lamp, this will come in 2 versions, one of which runs off the 10.8v packs, as above, and the ULA 14.4-18 LED which will take 14.4v and 18v batteries, all the way up to 5.2Ah.


Basically this is a straight-up LED lamp that's both light and portable, but also features the aluminium die-cast housingfor the LED bulb, making it durable and robust while you work. Metabo is claiming an enormous 19 hours run-time per 18v 4Ah battery, which is incredible.


The LED lamp head is fully adjustable allowing you to tilt and lock it in 12 positions, and also benefits from a hanging hook.

The light from the lamp is bright and even, as you'll see from our demo video.

We reckon these are worthy additions to Metabo's range of job site lights for 2014, but we want to know what you think. Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

I'm not quite sure what is is with Metabo, but they just seem to make a better tool. Better designed, better performing and just allround more useful! Despite (or maybe because) they have a more limited range than the others, the tools they do produce are so much better quality and more cleverly designed. Take the small 10.8v saber saw, for example. It's the only one available that takes jigsaw blades as well. As a sparky, I reckon these new 10.8v cordless tools are the most useful, well designed and quality constructed tool range currently available!
