Today Bosch Tools announced a new light addition to their lineup, the Bosch GLI18V-1200C LED Light. The LED Light will put out 1200 lumens and work on the Bosch 18V platform. Toss in a CORE battery and I bet you will have some killer run time. In fact, it is estimated to put out 17.3 hours of runtime on a single battery, something professionals will appreciate.
The GLI18V-1200C is connected to the Bosch ToolBox App allowing the user to make changes straight from a cell phone. Controls like on/off, dimming, timers, and a battery gauge make this light versatile and convenient with remote operation and data.
The Bosch GLI18V-1200CN 18V Connected LED Area Light with Bluetooth will be available bare tool for $99.00 in the US and $139.00 in Canada.
Bosch GLI18V-1200C LED Light- My Thoughts-
I am excited to see more lighting options coming to the market, especially from a leader in innovation like Bosch. I think the Bluetooth features will add a lot of convenience for users of all type. The price point is also a huge plus in its favor, offering a great value compared to other competitors. The light has a lot of output, rugged construction, and a fair price point. This will definitely be a light I am eager to get my hands on.

The 1,200-lumen smart light is fully controllable via Bluetooth, delivering up to 17.3 hours of work lighting on a single 18V battery
Mt. Prospect, Ill., March 12, 2019 – Controlling an area light shining over the entire jobsite can be tricky when it’s strapped to the rafters. That’s why Bosch is introducing the future of connected lighting. The Bosch GLI18V-1200C 18V Connected LED Area Light with Bluetooth® offers users full control over the smart light using a mobile device. Pros can now turn the light on and off remotely, dim the light to the desired brightness, put it on a timer and even check the battery – all from the free Bosch Toolbox App.

The Bosch GLI18V-1200CN is not only smart, but comes packed with features to withstand the most rugged jobsite conditions. Along with the area light’s protective roll cage, the tool’s IP64-rated cover is resistant to dust and water damage. Plus, it has five setup positions so pros can find the ideal angle to effectively illuminate a large work area.
The light produces 1,200 lumens, which is enough to illuminate dark work areas like corners or rooms. Despite its power, the GLI18V-1200C is compact enough to be a carry-along area light. It also has a fade-in function, allowing the light to slowly increase to full brightness to lessen the chances of temporary “flash blindness.”
In addition, the cordless Bosch GLI18V-1200C is a light that lasts through the day. It works with the rechargeable Bosch 18V system to provide outstanding runtime. The light intensity is adjustable, with a lower, dimmed mode setting for longer runtime – up to 17.3 hours on a CORE18V 8.0 Ah battery (not included). At 1,200 lumens, it provides 10.6 hours on the Bosch 8.0 Ah battery.
“Bosch is always looking to create a smarter, more efficient jobsite, and the new 1,200-lumen smart light does just that,” said Charlie Chiappetta, product manager, Bosch Power Tools. “Not only does the GLI18V-1200C make it easier than ever to illuminate an entire jobsite at the touch of a button, the CORE18V battery gives it enough juice to last throughout the workday, even at its brightest setting.”
The free Bosch Toolbox App, which is available at the Apple App Store® or the Google Play® Store, works with both Android and Apple devices and allows connection to the area light from up to 100 ft. away via Bluetooth.
The Bosch GLI18V-1200C LED Area Light is a bare tool; the battery and charger are sold separately.
