Joby Gorillatorch BladeWith an adjustable LED lamp and flexible magnetic legs, the Joby Gorillatorch Blade is an easy way to illuminate a dark workplace.
-From the makers of the Gorillapod and the Gorillatorch, comes the Joby Gorillatorch Blade. The Gorillatorch Blade is a small kind of technical LED flashlight that features an adjustable beam that goes from a 30-degree spotlight to a 160-degree flood. It has 2 different power outputs. There is a 65 lumen mode that is the standard that gives you about 6-1/2 hours of battery life. And a boosted 130 lumen mode that gives you 2-1/2 hours. You can either tap the power button on the back for a quick boost or you can hold it for 3 seconds to lock it out at a 130 lumens. Now, like all Joby items, this Gorillatorch has flexible legs at the bottom that can be bent in pretty much any angle. And at the tips, we have magnetic feet, which allow you to attach it to any sort of metallic source. The Gorillatorch Blade is charged by a USB, but it also ships with a USB to AC adapter for plugging it in to the wall. The actual Gorillatorch itself can be removed from the legs if you wanna use it as a more traditional handheld flashlight. Useful applications for the Gorillatorch Blade including crafting or working on your car or pretty much anywhere that you would usually use a person to hold a light, you can now work solo. You can pick this neat little legged flashlight for about $59.95. I'm Antoine Goodwin, this has been your first look at the Joby Gorillatorch Blade.
