One of the main reasons for the popularity of the new LED flashlights is the fact that they have a high color temperature, right in the range of 5,200 Kelvin. That’s great for helping you find a bolt in a dark corner, but if you are looking at a wiring harness, sometimes the slight variances of color are washed out by the high color temperature light. This is where the new TerraLUX LightStar 80 Penlight comes in. While the TerraLUX LightStar 80 Penlight burns at the same high color temperature, the LED has a special coating that cools the light down to a more natural spectrum of light – about 3,500 Kelvin. Producing a light that is closer to what the human eye sees under the sun, the TerraLUX LightStar 80 Penlight allows the minute differences in varying shades to pop out. The ability to recreate colors as they appear under natural light is what the industry calls a high Color Rendering Index, or CRI.
TerraLUX has built another feature into the LightStar 80 Penlight – a bite-grip. While we here at Toologics.com would not suggest that it is a good idea to bite the end of a flashlight, we are all guilty of the crime. Now, with the TerraLUX LightStar 80 Penlight, freeing up both hands is a much more comfortable endeavor. Available in a stealthy gray or a high-visibility orange anodized finish, the water-resistant TerraLUX LightStar 80 Penlight will soon become your new go-to flashlight.
