Good lighting conditions at your fingertips – Bosch is further expanding their Connectivity system for professionals and, with the GLI 18V-1200 C Professional and GLI 18V-2200 C Professional, offering two new cordless floodlights with 1200 or 2200 lumens. Both tools can easily be controlled via app: Switching on and off, dimming, coupling multiple floodlights, activating the timer – all of this can be done with a simple tap of your finger. Furthermore, tradespeople can also check the battery's charging status or PIN the floodlights to control access. Further advantages are a long runtime and their high IP64 certification for dust and splash protection. The floodlights are therefore suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Robust floodlight for the entire working day: GLI 18V-1200 C Professional

The GLI 18V-1200 C Professional, with twelve LEDs and lighting power of 1200 lumens, provides good visibility at any job site. At the same time, it stands out thanks to its particularly long runtime: 80 minutes per ampere-hour at the highest brightness setting. Using a 6.0 Ah battery, it will keep working for the entire working day. If the floodlight is switched on, it always starts in dimmed mode so that you are not dazzled by it. Furthermore, the GLI 18V-1200 C Professional is extremely robust: The surrounding frame guarantees a reduced wear-and-tear, reliably protects the light fixtures against damage and, at the same time, allows for five different set-up angles. The ¼ inch thread provides even more flexibility: The floodlight is therefore simply screwed onto a tripod and can then be positioned as required.

Most powerful cordless floodlight in the range: GLI 18V-2200 C Professional

The GLI 18V-2200 C Professional stands out when compared to its predecessors thanks to a newly designed reflector. It increases the brightness from 1900 to 2200 lumens and makes the GLI 18V-2200 C Professional the most powerful cordless floodlight from Bosch. It efficiently illuminates even large work areas. The tool offers two brightness settings, five set-up angles and a 5/8 inch tripod thread. This means that tradespeople can quickly and flexibly, set and change the lighting conditions in various work situations. The runtime is 44 minutes per ampere-hour at the highest brightness setting, or 100 minutes when it is dimmed to 950 lumens. If you are using a 6.0 Ah battery, the GLI 18V-2200 C Professional will therefore light up the construction site at the required level of brightness for half a working day to the whole working day.

Full compatibility with the existing range

The GLI 18V-1200 C Professional and GLI 18V-2200 C Professional are powered by high-performance 18 volt lithium-ion batteries which are part of Bosch's “Flexible Power System”. This guarantees compatibility with all new and existing professional power tools and chargers within the same voltage class. This leads to greater productivity in day-to-day work.

The GLI 18V-1200 C Professional cordless floodlight is available from October, while the GLI 18V-2200 C Professional is available from September. These are the recommended retail prices excluding VAT. Subject to change.
