Pocket-size inspection light

As small as a pen, so easily popped into a shirt pocket, the new Narva LED Pen Light packs a powerful lighting punch.

The light uses COB LEDs to deliver 150 lumens of portable light. 

At full strength, the Pen Light provides two hours of light before requiring recharging, however the battery life can be doubled to four hours if the pen’s lower setting is selected.

For greater flexibility, the unit has two output functions, allowing it to operate as either a flood light or as a torch beam to provide directional light (at 100 lumens) with a run time of three hours. A further feature is a brightness memory function, that recalls the last light output setting, making it ideal for tricky start and stop jobs.

Charging is easy via the included USB charging lead, with a full recharge taking between two and three hours. For greater durability, the Pen Light is finished in a high-quality metal casing and features a secure metal clip so it can hold onto shirt pockets or similar clothing.

Elsewhere in the range, three Narva ALS Utility Lights all combine a powerful inspection lamp with directional torches for greater flexibility.

A 350-lumen inspection light / 100-lumen torch; 600-lumen inspection light / 500-lumen torch; and a 1,000-lumen inspection lamp / 500-lumen torch are all a similar in size to a smartphone, making them extremely portable and easy to store. The output from the main light function is crisp, smooth and broad, while the torch function delivers a powerful directional beam. 

Depending on the brightness adjustment, the units provide between two to twenty hours’ usage, while the directional torch delivers three hours of light. 

All three Utility Lights come standard with glow-in-the-dark locators, integrated magnets and hanging hooks as part of the built-in stand that provides a range of positioning options.

 The two most powerful Utility models are rated to IP67, making them fully water and dust resistant.
