Compatible with all 14.4 V and 18 V Li-Power Compact, Li-Power Plus and Li-Power Extreme battery packs, the new flashlight effectively complements Metabo's new PowerMasterSeries of cordless power tools.  

The ULA 14.4-18 features a swivel head that locks into six different positions, making it easy to see in constricted areas.  A handy focusable light beam adjusts to illuminate the exact area being worked on.

The flashlight, which weighs less than one pound, is covered by Metabo's standard XXL warranty that provides three years worth of coverage in the event that the flashlight stops functioning properly.
