What is the LED light?
|Most cordless drill drivers have one or more built-in LED lights for working in poorly-lit spaces (e.g. under the stairs, in cupboards etc.) On the left is an example of a cordless drill driver with an LED light.
|LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and is simply a small white or coloured light source.
LED lights come in many different shapes and sizes, but 5mm (3/16” approx.) is the size (left) that would usually be used on a power tool such as a cordless drill driver.
|Because they are small and compact, LED lightbulbs are perfect for use on power tools such as cordless drill drivers.
Where is the LED light?
|How many LED lights a cordless drill driver has and where they are located will depend on the make and model.
Usually, the LED light will be positioned underneath the tool’s chuck.
|But some are positioned at the base of the tool just above the battery.
