Milwaukee® USB Rechargeable Utility Hot Stick Light Sets New Standard for Inline Hot Stick Lighting

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver unprecedented innovation for the Power Utility Industry with the introduction of the USB Rechargeable Utility Hot Stick Light. This lighting solution attaches to any universal hot stick and is built with two separate LED lights that provide 350 lumens of TRUEVIEW™ high-output lighting for up to 8 hours, setting a new standard for inline hot stick lighting.

            “Linemen face some of the most demanding and hazardous conditions, and often a hot stick is all that separates them from energized power lines. Unfortunately, the most popular options for lighting the work area around hot sticks – ground base lights and headlamps – are limited at best because they’re not specifically designed for hot sticks and their light spreads are often obstructed by trees and poles. These users needed the ability to apply high output lighting directly to the application to eliminate shadows and allow them to efficiently finish their work,” said Jason Isaacs, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “We set out to solve this problem by delivering a solution that can provide high-output lighting directly to the application to eliminate shadows. The USB Rechargeable Utility Hot Stick Light has the performance, run-time, and KV rating ideal for hot stick work. Users can now quickly tackle the application at hand without the hindrance of insufficient or unreliable lighting.”

            Powered by REDLITHIUM™ USB*, the new light delivers up to 350 lumens of halo lighting and adjustable output levels light the fuse for up to 8 hours off one battery charge. Its advanced TRUEVIEW™** high-output lighting and optical design delivers a consistent beam, optimized color temperature, and true representation of colors and detail leading to a more productive work area.

            Built to thrive in the toughest conditions, the USB Rechargeable Utility Hot Stick Light is built with a durable, high-impact polycarbonate lens that can survive up to a 40’ drop. Its high impact aluminum body is also IP67 rated for protection from water and dust. As with all Milwaukee® high output LED lights, the new light also features a limited lifetime LED warranty, and a 5-year warranty on the product.

From the power plant, through transmission and distribution, it is Milwaukee’s goal to improve reliability and productivity for linemen by offering solutions that help increase confidence while on the job. The new USB Rechargeable Utility Hot Stick Light joins a wide range of power tools, cordless crimpers and cutters, high-output lighting, hand tools, storage, and linemen accessories that continue to deliver on this mission.

* REDLITHIUM™ USB gives users rechargeable convenience and performance where maintaining a compact size is critical, and eliminates the downtime associated with other rechargeable solutions due to slow charge speed or integrated batteries. Capable of being charged either on the product or on a separate charger, and with a 3X faster charge time, users can get back to work more quickly. Plus, with over 2,000 recharges, REDLITHIUM™ USB eliminates the dependency on disposable batteries in situations of extended use.


** TRUEVIEW™ Technology utilizes the most advanced LED technology and optical designs to deliver a consistent beam, optimized color temperature, and true representation of colors and detail leading to a more productive work area.
