Last August, we told you about the wonderfully-named Joby Gorillatorch. It’s an LED lamp mounted on a Gorillapod tripod with its bendy, knobby, magnet-tipped legs which allow it to be mounted almost anywhere – it can wrap around branches, cling to a car’s fender, or hang from the inside of a tent. Now, Joby has announced that the Gorillatorch is being joined by a souped-up big brother... the Gorillatorch Flare.
While the original model has a single white 65-lumen CREE LED, the Flare sports a 100-lumen version, plus three red LEDs. When set into flashing red mode, it can be used as roadside hazard light, for those nighttime flat tires. The torch has five other intensity modes including low, medium, high and flashing white, and high-intensity red.
The Gorillatorch Flare is available for US$34.95 through the Joby website.
