The Matco Lighting Program features two updated lighting technologies. The SMD (surface mounted diodes) and COB (chip on board) technology lighting configurations greatly reduce the amount of energy needed to produce the same amount of light, according to Matco Tools. The technology provides a longer life expectancy for up to 100,000 hours (over 11 years) of continuous operation. The LEDs used are solid-state devices, with no breakable filaments or glass tubes, making them specially designed to be impact resistant. Because this line was also designed for user comfort, most products feature ergonomic hand molds.
