Gorillatorch Shines Light Exactly Where You Need It (http://www.ohgizmo.com/2009/08/21/gorillatorch-shines-light-exactly-where-you-need-it/)

Just found this and the price is right on!!


Flashlights are handy things to have, but they never seem to sit exactly how you need them to. There have been different solutions to this problem over the years, the latest being the Gorrilatorch. Looking at it, youíll easily recognize it as the brother of the Gorillapod (http://www.ohgizmo.com/2008/09/03/gorillapod-go-go-is-designed-for-everything-else/).
The Gorillatorch is exactly what you would expect from Joby. Youíve got a flashlight attached to one of their famous Gorillapods, which makes it easy to point the light exactly where you need it. The light uses LEDs to achieve a maximum brightness of 65 lumens, though it can be lowered if you donít need anything quite that bright. Two AA batteries are all thatís needed to light up any workspace. For $30, this would be useful in any house, garage or workshop.

A lot nicer than a flashlight. Gotta find one.

Nice except for those LEDs. I know LEDs have a huge advantage in power consumption, long life and dependability but for some reason that weird light they make is very irritating to me. I must not be alone because a few years ago when the company I worked for decided to issue flashlights to everyone on the night shift (we worked outside) they gave us a choice of "Maglite" lights and out of about 60 people only a few chose the LEDs over the old fashioned incandescent bulb type lights.

how many times have you been under a car or truck, drop the light and are screwed, in the dark and have to crawl back out from under the rig to get a light bulb?

It has got to be way better than the way most of us has been working for years.

hell I want one. I have a snake light, its kind of handy.

Looks like they're pretty well distributed.
