MAXXEON CYCLOPS WorkStar® 810, 811 and 812 Rechargeable Commercial Grade LED Work Lights

The WorkStar® 810/811/812 CYCLOPS lights are competitively priced, commercial grade, USB rechargeable LED inspection lights that produce 720/360/180 lumens, and run for 2/4.5/10 hours. The 810 is red, the 811 is HiViz green and the 812 is HiViz yellow.


The MAXXEON CYCLOPS WorkStar® 81X series is now available in HiViz green and yellow, in addition to red, to make them easier to find in some situations and easier to personalize in operations with a number of technicians. The CYCLOPS is a USB rechargeable work light that fits nicely in your hand, but it also has a handle with a built in magnet and a 1/4"-20 tripod socket. The handle rotates 360 degrees, with 12 intended positions. The handle can be used as a handle, or as a stand to support and aim the light. The powerful magnetic base in the handle can be fastened to any ferrous metal surface. The tripod socket in the handle of the 81X adds mounting flexibility. The optional octopus tripod can be used as a tripod or a "hook". The optional suction cup can be fastened to glass or other smooth surfaces. The magnetic base is covered with a protective coating making it the perfect cordless inspection light for mechanics, technicians and anybody who works with their hands.

Performance Upgrade

Breaking News: CYCLOPS has been upgraded to 3 brightness settings: 720 lumens on High with a run time of 2 hr, 360 lm on Medium with a run time 4.5 hr and 180 lm on Low with a run time of 10 hr. Twice as bright as before on High and the run time has been doubled on Medium (formally High) and Low.

As Before: Other handheld rechargeable work lights have a vertical strip of LEDs and an odd oval beam pattern. Not CYCLOPS! It creates a perfectly round beam pattern using a square array of 9 LEDs and a custom wide angle lens. Four green LEDs work in 25% increments to show the battery level while in use and while charging. Charge time is about 3 hr. Using the latest LiPo (Li-ion Polymer) battery technology, this commercial grade work light includes a USB cord for easy recharging in the shop or on the go.


The rugged WorkStar® 81X commercial grade professional LED work light is designed for daily use by technicians in demanding shop, manufacturing and maintenance environments. The tough ABS body, polycarbonate lens and nylon handle are virtually indestructible. The rugged power switch is rated at 50,000 cycles and is sealed to avoid contamination by dirt and grit. It's a great cordless inspection light for HVAC and auto techs, as well as other trades like plumbers and electricians. With the addition of HiViz green and yellow, the CYCLOPS is even useful for professionals.

Cliff P. Testimonial

I bought this little light from a tool truck, it's been left on cars for test drives, it's fallen off of cars several times, I've dropped it quite a few times, and ran over once by an F-150. I can't kill this light. It still charges up and bright as ever. Thank you for a great product.
