For much of the last decade the 3M Sun Gun ruled the roost in the world of portable lighting for detailers. The original version was rather fragile and drained its rechargeable battery quickly, but its nigh on perfectly daylight-balanced light output highlighted defects that other lighting failed to illuminate, and it quickly became the gold standard for professional use. The second version, dubbed the 3M Sun Gun II, improved upon the first in several key ways, but its price tag rocketed too, putting it and the level of performance on offer out of the reach of many. Luckily this situation changed recently when SCANGRIP launched their DETAILING range of LED work lights and, in particular, their SUNMATCH model. In a nutshell, the SCANGRIP SUNMATCH virtually matched the performance of the 3M Sun Gun II, and at a price point that defied belief... and now they've made it even better! The performance of the SCANGRIP SUNMATCH 2 is quite frankly staggering: (i) the powerful COB LED highlights more defects than the 3M Sun Gun II, because it can be switched between two different colour temperatures (4500 K and 6500 K) that are optimised for inspecting lighter and darker finishes respectively; (ii) it runs for three times longer in full power mode before the thermal safety cut out kicks in; (iii) the built-in magnet and tilting head (up to 180°) opens up all sorts of possibilities in terms of attaching the SCANGRIP SUNMATCH 2 to body panels for hands-free illumination as you work; and (c) the build quality is outstanding (the SCANGRIP SUNMATCH 2 is shock resistant and completely dust and waterproof). How does that old saying go? The king is dead, long live the king! All hail the SCANGRIP SUNMATCH 2!
