LED is an acronym for Light-Emitting Diode and refers to an electronic semiconductor device through which an electric current is passed in order to emit light. More efficient in operation than incandescent light bulbs and rarely subject to burning out, LEDs are used in a variety of different applications, including digital watches and flat-screen televisions. A work light is a light specifically manufactured for use in a particular job-related situation, such as for theater technicians, automobile mechanics, and marine applications. An LED work light is a work light that in addition to its other specifications being met, uses a Light-Emitting Diode, and the best LED work light to choose will be the one with the specs best suited to the job at hand.
There is a certain set of features that distinguish most LED work lights and reviewing them can help you determine if the LED work light you are considering is the best choice for you. The first important distinction is between the LED work light that is a separate device, as opposed to the one that is built into a tool. For example, the Milwaukee® 2629-22 M18 Compact Cordless Bandsaw has an LED work light built into the saw, but in most cases, the light is a separate device.
