The SCANGRIP MATCHPEN R is the smallest most portable work light in the SCANGRIP DETAILING range, yet packs a mighty punch despite its modest size. For starters, the powerful COB LED features two calibrated colour temperature modes (4500 K and 6500 K, optimised for lighter and darker finishes respectively), which combine to enable the full gamut of common paint defects to be easily spotted during the paint inspection process. And when ambient light levels are low, as is often the case in garages and workshops, the SCANGRIP MATCHPEN R provides abundant lighting for interior work and other general cleaning duties, while its beam angle adjuster ensures that the spread of light can be readily adjusted to suit the task in hand. And finally, there's the outstanding build quality. The SCANGRIP MATCHPEN R is both shock resistant and dust and waterproof, and comes with a three year warranty. For detailing enthusiasts on a tight budget, this innovative penlight does it all at an affordable price point.

How To Use
Before using the SCANGRIP MATCHPEN R for the first time, charge the internal 3.7 V 1100 mAh Li-ion battery fully using the supplied USB charging cable. Full charge is achieved when the charging indicator turns green; this usually takes less than an hour from new, as the SCANGRIP MATCHPEN R is supplied partially charged. In future, recharge the SCANGRIP MATCHPEN R as and when required; this typically takes around 2.5 hours from a flat state. Please note that you should never store the SCANGRIP MATCHPEN R with a flat battery, as it could become over-discharged and impossible to reuse. In line with this, if you don't intend to use your SCANGRIP MATCHPEN R for a long period of time (i.e. several months or more), make sure you recharge it fully every 30 days or so, to ensure that the battery remains in good condition. On a more general note, we recommend switching between the two different colour temperatures when checking paint correction work, as they highlight paint defects differently depending on the colour of the finish. You will find it easier to spot defects (particularly marring and holograms) if you stand back slightly and sweep the beam over the bodywork from a distance of 50 - 100 cm.
