The UK’s most respected testing forum for automotive products, Auto Express, has assessed two of the latest Philips Xperion 6000 workshop lights and found them to be the pick of the bunch in its annual mega test. Winning the test with a superb five-star rating, was the Philips Xperion 6000 Slim, while its larger sibling, the range-topping Xperion 6000 UV Pillar, also secured a coveted Recommended Buy award.

The Best Buy, Philips Xperion 6000 Slim, was described as “A great package” – scoring near the top in every aspect of the test, from its substantial feel through its lighting performance to its run-time length and its value for money.

The Xperion 6000 Slim features a wide 100° beam angle from its long slim lighting unit which rotates through 270°, allowing the operator almost unlimited vision, through even the narrowest of gaps. The 6000 Slim has three different outputs – like the other lights in the range – and in the case of the Slim it ranges from 100-500 lm, yet it still offers a long operating time of up to 9 hours – depending on the levels of light required. With two different magnets – one on the base and one on the rear – and a useful torch in the tip, but still light and easy to use, with its folding light blade, and an SRP of £49.99, the lamp is a brilliant all rounder.

Auto Express also heaped praise on the Philips Xperion 6000 UV Pillar, citing the performance of its 500-lumen light, its colour matching ability, its battery life and its advanced battery display as being amongst its premium features and its worthiness for Recommended Buy status.

The Philips Xperion 6000 UV Pillar, is packed full of features – a multi-purpose work light with several powerful light sources. It has a premium LED movable main light, with three different outputs ranging from 100-500 lumen(lm) and a wide 100° beam angle; a high Colour Rendering Index (CRI) light and a unique UV light which allows leak detection. The 6000 UV Pillar has a long-lasting battery and allows the user to locate it with the “Find My Device” function, which comes as standard (the same function is also available as an option on the Best Buy – wining 6000 Slim).

Both award winning Xperion workshop lights can be charged wireless via a docking station that can be purchased as an additional accessory.

“The Philips Xperion 6000 range employs some innovative thinking for workshop inspection lamps and its great to see this cutting-edge technology proving itself in the UK’s most respected test,” explains Richard Armstrong, Business Development Manager Automotive –UK & Eire for Lumileds, who manufacture and bring Philips Automotive products to the market, globally. “In an extremely competitive sector, having the products recognised as stand-out purchases so soon after their launch, should make both professional and serious home-users sit up and take notice.” 

The ranges of Philips Workshop lamps offer a wide variety of lighting solutions for Professional and home – workshop applications. From the EcoPro selection through the hybrid CBH52 under bonnet lamp and Penlight Colour+, to the new award-winning Xperion 6000 models, Philips workshop lamps offer the right product for the job.
