Sparks, Md.—Mechanics don’t need more tools. They need better tools that take the place of multiple inferior ones. That was the driving force for GEARWRENCH® and its new Winglight and Compact Work Light, versatile lighting tools that offer more ways to get the job done in low light.
When closed, the GEARWRENCH Winglight is a powerful flashlight with up to 400 lumens of lighting power. When a larger area needs to be lit, the Winglight opens to reveal a powerful LED on the inside of each wing. The result is a 1,000-lumen area light without needing another tool. Using its magnetic handle or built-in hanging hook, the Winglight is easily mounted under shelves, joists or vehicle hoods. The Winglight also pairs with the GEARWRENCH Underhood Rack system, making positioning for optimum illumination even easier.
Equally versatile, the GEARWRENCH Compact Work Light—with its two independent light options—has the power of a work light but the convenience of a pocket light. The 100-lumen penlight feature provides a clean spotlight option, while the 300-lumen dimmable area light brightens a broader area when you need it. It can be positioned easily via its built-in magnet or hook, depending on the need, or it can stand on its own platform. When the job is done, it fits easily in a pocket.
Reinforced composite casings give both the Winglight and Compact Work Light the durability needed to survive the job. Both are rechargeable using USB-C ports, and a constant current feature delivers full rated lumen output without dimming until battery shutdown, while notifying users that charging is needed.
The Compact Work Light is slated to be available early in January 2020 and the Winglight later in Q1. For more information, visit the GEARWRENCH team at booth 10509 during the SEMA Show, Tuesday, Nov. 5 through Friday, Nov. 8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, or visit www.gearwrench.com.
