Joby Launches Gorillatorch Switchback Lantern

I would bet that most of us have needed to work on something under the hood of the car or under a cabinet before, and needed both hands but needed a flashlight too. Typically that means you had to hold the flashlight in your mouth or call someone to help you. Joby has a line of flashlights called Gorillatorch that eliminate the need for that flashlight holder.

The latest addition to the Gorillatorch line is the new Switchback. The thing is on the same articulating tripod Gorillapod line is famous for. But the Switchback is a lot different from the other lights in the line. The Switchback can be used as a lantern when you don’t need a focused beam and can be fitted with a headlight when you do need a focused beam.

I assume that headlight is used not for strapping to your head, but to be able to get a spotlight on a specific area rather than just providing general illumination like a lamp does. The Switchback has multiple brightness settings with 5 lumen, 20 lumen, 80 lumen, and 130 lumen settings. Power comes from AA batteries good for up to 72 hours of use. You can buy the Switchback for $59.95 (USD) right now.
