Reveal objects in their true colors with the new Philips Penlight Premium Color+

Suresnes, France – August 1st, 2021 – Meet the upgraded Philips Penlight Premium Color+, developed by Lumileds. Designed with a fresh, modern look, this premium professional work lamp provides intense light from a high-quality LED that shows objects in their true colors. The robust aluminum housing means the lamp can withstand shocks, chemicals and water and is built to last.

Superior light output helps you see and work better

The latest, premium version of the Penlight is equipped with a unique Color+ function. This utilizes a high-performance CoB LED to reveal objects in their true colors, even in dark environments. The lamp’s high Color Rendering Index (CRI*) of 95 allows an accurate representation of color, unlike other work lights with a lower CRI. “The higher the CRI, the easier it is to inspect car bodywork for paint matches and blemishes. The quality of light from this penlight lets you see colors as they really are”, said Swati Singh, Product Manager for LED at Lumileds.

The Penlight offers the Color+ function in two useful modes for different light-intensity needs. ‘Boost’ produces 200 lumens of brilliant white light for detailed work. ‘Eco’ mode’s 120-lumen output illuminates brightly while maximizing battery life. Both feature a beam angle of up to 70°. Additionally, a powerful Spotlight of 180 lm gives close-up visibility in a specific area, focusing its intense beam on the target.

Enhanced versatility on the job

The Philips Penlight Premium Color+ has even more tricks up its sleeve. For dangerous situations there is a high-frequency warning mode of 75 red flashes per minute, like an emergency vehicle, helping you alert others to non-traffic hazards.

Working hands-free is easy, too. Simply place the penlight on a car body or other magnetic surface and the dual magnets in the housing will hold it firmly in position. The 80° swivel clip lets you hang the light on your belt for a handy everyday carry, making it the perfect work companion.

Robust design majors on durability and flexibility

On top of the new Color+ features, this work lamp comes with a tough aluminum housing for long-lasting durability, because even the most careful workers sometimes drop their tools.

The Philips Penlight Premium Color+ is built for the toughest working environments with IK07 shock resistance, water resistance to IP54 standards and a surface that can handle chemicals and workshop solvents. This inspection lamp is impact- and scratch-resistant, as well as safe and reliable for indoor and outdoor use.

Under 2 hours’ charge from a USB-C port, fitted in most cars, provides high-quality light for up to 4 long hours in Eco mode. The Philips Penlight Premium Color+ really is a uniquely practical pocket tool.
