An iPhone with a flashlight app is useful for small tasks like finding your keys. But more rugged situations call for a bright light and free hands. With the $30 Gorillatorch, Joby has taken the popular pliable legs from its Gorillapod tripod and replaced the camera mount with a powerful LED flashlight. The light has a dimmer switch, can shine up to 65 lumens, and runs for up to 80 hours on three AA batteries. To increase the little guy's already impressive ability to mount almost anywhere, Joby added strong magnets to the end of each leg. The water-resistant Gorillatorch is ideal for camping, spelunking, late night-reading, and emergency kits.
