One of the first automotive workshops to adopt the rugged new Hemipro high power worklights reports that they have defied all efforts to kill them and they continue to provide much better light than ever before.
“Previously we used normal LED portable lights, but since we got Hemipro’s the other ones have stayed on the shelf. These are much better, because not only are they tougher, but also they provide a significantly broader spectrum of light and much greater clarity.”
“The older blokes here used to grizzle that sometimes they couldn’t see things properly under the bonnet, and had to take them outside so they could. Now they are real happy,” said Brooks.
Manufactured by Cliplight and being introduced to Australasia by GO Distribution, Hemipro worklights are designed to provide 10 years or more of optimum clarity and safety in maintenance tasks.
They incorporate the first use of high-power LEDs in work lights for the automotive repair market with strong benefits also for applications such as industrial heavy vehicle, electrical, farm and machinery maintenance workshops.
Their retail appeal is further enhanced by their being highly appropriate for consumer use around campsites, caravans and the booming number of recreational vehicles and associated activities.
The Hemipro high power worklights were selected as a product of the month by the USA’s Professional Tool and Equipment News magazine, circulation 104,000.
Using either two or three high power LEDs, the Hemipro 2 LED and 3 LED work lights provide powerful beams which, respectively, equal or exceed the light area intensity of a 60W or 75W beam, says GO Distribution Director Gary Oborne.
“What really sets the Hemipro lights apart, however, is the patent-pending, uniquely engineered hemispherical lens design, which refracts the LEDs into an exceptionally clean, bright and wide beam. The highly modified lens design captures and transfers the powerful LED light into a super-wide 70 deg beam, while also eliminating hot spots, dull areas or irritating halo rings.”
Cameron Brooks says these qualities will be an advantage in the prestige and show work his company undertakes (including drag race vehicles and a custom Harley that recently won Best Bike at the Sydney Bike Show. With the attention to detail required carrying out the day to day servicing of vehicles it is essential to have the best workshop lighting available.
Designed to provide high performance for 10 years or more of normal use, Hemipro incorporates features to help ensure its longevity including:
- Tough polycarbonate patent-pending Lumiguard lens shield: This protects the lens and can be easily and quickly replaced if it gets scratched, cracked or tarnished. Rather than throwing away the entire work light, users can simply replace the Lumiguard in less than two minutes
- Similarly, the super strong NiMH 2500 milliAmp hour battery in the 2 LED and 3 LED cordless models are rechargeable and replaceable. However, replacement will not happen too often, says GO Distribution, because as the battery has a life expectancy of three years under normal use. The 2 LED can be used up to five hours between charges. The 3 LED is good for three hours between charges. Even the 360° swivel hook can be replaced
