The Kaiweets Self-Leveling Laser Level was recently featured in the popular tech blog NerdTechy. Their recent article showcased the top-rated laser levels for the year and displayed Kaiweets above two other popular choices. The quality and effectiveness of our laser level won over the competition due to its quality build and feature-rich design. You can read more here.

Best Self Leveling Cross-Line Laser Level

Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer or a construction professional, you need the right tools for your job. And for many framing, plumbing, and electrical jobs, those tools include a laser level. A self-leveling laser level projects horizontal and/or vertical lines around your work area. Because it’s self-leveling, you know these lines are accurate. As you might imagine, the applications for this kind of tool are endless. You can use them to level studs, or to make sure a door frame is plumb. You can build a retaining wall or set up a fence on uneven ground, and keep the top level. With the right design, you can even make sure pipes are sloped at the correct angle.

That said, there are many possible features for a self-leveling laser level. Depending on what job you’re trying to do, any given level might be a better or worse choice. With that in mind, we’re going to review not just one, but three of the best self-leveling laser levels available. To begin with, we’ll look at the Kaiweets Self Leveling Laser Level. This is a no-nonsense 360-degree level with one horizontal and two vertical lines. Next, we’ll examine the Bosch GLL30. This is a more affordable level designed for interior jobs. Finally, we’ll check out the Klein Tools 93LCLG. This is a robust level with a magnetic base and vertical plumb dots. After that, we’ll sum up what we’ve learned. Let’s get started!

What to Look for in a Self Leveling Laser Level

Before we look at our individual choices, let’s talk about self-leveling lasers, and what you should expect. There are a number of factors to consider, and manufacturers offer all kinds of bells and whistles. In that sense, every laser level is unique. But there are also some features you should be looking at in every laser level. You need to consider the accuracy, the type of laser light, the laser’s range, and the quality of the build. Let’s take a look at each of these.

Accuracy

Before we look at our individual choices, let’s talk about self-leveling lasers, and what you should expect. There are a number of factors to consider, and manufacturers offer all kinds of bells and whistles. In that sense, every laser level is unique. But there are also some features you should be looking at in every laser level. You need to consider the accuracy, the type of laser light, the laser’s range, and the quality of the build. Let’s take a look at each of these.

Laser Color and Brightness

Most laser levels are made with either red or green lasers. This is because those wavelengths are the ones that are most visible to the human eye. But even the most easily visible laser can be hard to see in the outdoors. This is because the sun is 10 times as bright as ordinary interior light. You don’t notice it when you step outside, because your eyes adjust in a few seconds. But the sheer intensity of the sunlight will block out all but the brightest laser levels. And even levels that work outdoors will have much shorter range than they will indoors. For this reason, some levels come with white or reflective panels to project the laser onto.

Laser Range

Next, you need to think about the range of the laser light. This will be a combination of brightness and accuracy. At the point where the beam is no longer visible, or wildly inaccurate, it can no longer be used. Professional-grade outdoor levels will be effective to at least 100 feet, and sometimes as far as 300 feet. Indoor levels will typically have a much shorter range, since a longer range is usually pointless.

Quality of Engineering

Finally, look at the overall quality of the build. Is the level water-resistant? Is it designed for tripod mounting? What are your other mounting options? Is there a carrying case? Can the level withstand a drop? These types of considerations are particularly important when you’re using your level outdoors. However, even an indoor level is subject to abuse, and will benefit from good mounting options.

The Kaiweets Self Leveling Laser Level is a rugged level with a beefy housing. It’s constructed from black ABS plastic, with controls and a battery meter on the side. These include a small power button, and a large locking and unlocking switch. The laser lights are mounted separately on the top, front, and the opposite side from the controls. Each laser emitter protrudes from the unit, and projects a circular beam around the room. Since these beams go out along all three axes, it's a true 3-axis level.

The laser lights are green, and are exceptionally bright. Even outdoors, they can extend as far as 196 feet, so you can work in very large areas without any trouble. As befits a long-range laser, the accuracy is also excellent. Each individual laser emitter is mounted in its own little gyroscope. This allows for all three axes to automatically settle to within 4 degrees of accuracy. That works out to an accuracy of less than 1/8-inch at a distance of 32 feet. Not only that, but the housing is IP54-rated for weather resistance. Rain and dust won’t pose any threat to this level.

The main level housing is built into a flat base, which can be placed on the ground. It’s also compatible with both ¼- and 5/16-inch tripod mounts. And if that’s not enough, the base is magnetized, so it can be attached to a metal stud, pipe, or junction box.

The kit includes two rechargeable batteries, each of which will last for at least 20 hours. There’s also a USB Type-C charger, a nylon carrying bag, and a target plate for outdoor use. All of this is covered by an extensive three-year warranty, one of the best in the business.
