I got the Joby Gorillatorch LED Flashlight as a gift for Christmas. It's one of those things I could really use but would probably never purchase myself. Turns out I'm using this little item regularly around the house. It's designed for camping or home use. The Gorillatorch has three strong rubber flexible legs allowing for use on uneven surfaces or they can be wrapped around something...like a tree branch. But, the real trick is the legs have magnetic ends. This allows the Joby to easily adhere to any metal, like my barbecue grill last night. The LED beam is very bright, adjustable to several settings and easy to turn on and off. Because it's LED, the battery life is from 20 hours to 80 hours depending on the brightness setting.
