Good, but not great for the cost
March 27, 2015
I wanted a light specifically made for finding blemishes in clear coat. As an amateur, I don't have a proper light set up in an enclosed garage, so finding finer swirls on light color cars can be tricky. While the rupes pen works better than any other hand held light I've ever tried, it still isn't great for working on my own white car. On any other color, it works fine in moderate to low ambient light.
Pros:Works great on most color paint.
Small and powerful.
Cons:Costs a lot, and doesn't have enough color for white cars.
