Maxxeon WorkStar 440 Inspection Light


I have reviewed several very well made LED flashlights from Surefire and Brite-Strike. The WorkStar 440 by Maxxeon falls into the same vein of high quality, LED flashlights but with one significant difference, a 10 inch flexible neck that the LED head is attached to.

As stated above, the key feature that sets the WorkStar 440 apart from many other LED flashlights is its PVC coated, flexible 10 inch gooseneck with a high powered LED head at the end. The flexible neck enables you to direct the bright light exactly where it is needed, allowing you to illuminate hard-to-reach places that are difficult to access.

The main body and LED head are constructed of high-grade (T6) aluminum, painted with a black Type II hard anodized coating.

The WorkStar 440 has a electronic current control that maximizes efficiency and allows it to runs for approximately 2 hours on two alkaline AA batteries. I tested it with two fully charged 2300 mAh rechargeable batteries (not included) and left the light on continuously. The 440 remained very bright for 4-5 hours becoming gradually dimmer, finally extinguishing after 8 hours. A very respectable run time on a single charge.

The tailcap switch allows for easy one-handed operation with your thumb. The Maxxeon website specifically says the WorkStar 440 is not waterproof but the end cap is sealed with an O-ring and appears to be water resistant.

The Maxxeon WorkStar 440 Flexible LED Inspection Light is engineered to illuminate hard-to-reach places on many types of equipment and vehicles. Designed for IT technicians, automotive/aircraft/boating mechanics, emergency response personnel, campers/boaters, handipersons, etc. The WorkStar 440 is a well made/engineered tool for those individuals in need of this type of specialized light.
