I mean it does what it says on the tin but is very cheap and nasty the clicking of the light when you push it up and down is very annoying out of the DEWALT Milwaukee and Makita this is the worst

Handy torch that runs off all my existing batteries. Lasts for ages off a 3amp battery. Lightweight and robust with a variable angle head. Spare bulb holder in the head too.

A cracking little torch for the money.I use this when my phone light is not enough and the best bit is I don’t have to remember to change it.

If your looking for a very bright, quality and long lasting light and this is for you! I'm more then happy with this light. In my small dark area this brightens the whole area up

Good solid torch, good brightness although it would be good to select different levels.
Lasts a long time on the battery and always good to use the same batteries as the rest of my Makita kit.

Great torch, nice and bright great when you tidying tour gear away on these dark nights seems flimsy but has survived over a year now on the same bulb.

Best torch ive ever owned, i have to purchase the battery but this bad boy just gives hours and hours of use, comfortable to grip, easy to charge, just don’t leave it in someone’s house or you wont get it back

Use my torch quite a lot and does the job it's supposed to. The build feels very flimsy and plastic which isn't ideal for some one as clumsy as myself but that said it's survived so far

Good torch. Takes the makita batterys. Had this a year now and haven’t had to change a bulb yet. Great to get into small spaces or where an extension lead light isn’t viable.

Had this for about a year now and within the first few weeks the lamp went complete waste of money. Worked well up till then.

Not the best quality light. Has taken a beating over the last year and still works but can be temperamental at times.

Had one for a while now, already had other makita 18v products. Very robust, took plenty of hammer and still works fine. Only ever used 2 bulbs in it in over 5 years, strong bright buld too

Nice bright light easy to use torch , it does feel a little on the flimsy side but I've dropped mine a few times and it's still going

Useful addition to your kit as the batteries fit, would not go out and buy just as torch/charger and battery as it would be far too pricey! As you can get LED flood lights now that you charge up for around the same price as this torch bare! Which I have and use more often than the Makita torch, it's not very robust if you were to drop it from a height I rekon you may only come away with the battery still intact lol

Good as a stand up torch but is very limited. Build is cheap and a bit crap. Bulbs are rubbish and can blow easily.

Feels cheap and flimsy and isn't very bright although it is lightweight and easy to use 1 handed. Would buy the fluorescent torch as I have that too and is much better

A great addition to the toolkit if you already have the batteries and charger. Good bright light and doesn't drain the battery too quickly.

Question for Makita BML185 18V Cordless Torch
Answers for Makita BML185 18V Cordless Torch
Not really a question but I've recently bought an LED cree bulb for my torch. Wow what an upgrade at only £10! Well worth it and doesn't blow like standard bulbs when you knock the torch over.
