Joby Gorillatorch Flare debuts

Posted in Flashlights by Shane McGlaun on June 9th, 2010

About this time last year, I talked about the Joby Gorillatorch. The Gorillatorch is a plain flashlight that is on one of the articulating Joby tripods with magnetic feet. The Gorilltorch was a very cool little gadget.

Joby has announced a new version of the Gorillatorch called the Gorillatorch Flare. The Flare is almost identical to the original Gorillatorch with the exception of the Flare having a single white LED and three red LEDs inside. The white LED offers up to 100 lumens of light and the three reds lights can be used to create a red distress beacon.

BunBun Eco Light: Twirl to charge

Posted in Flashlights by Conner Flynn on April 1st, 2010

Eco gadgets that don’t require batteries usually have a solar panel in them. Or maybe they require you to crank a handle to juice it up. Well, the BunBun Eco Light has neither. Instead, you just have to twirl it around for about 30 seconds.

All of that kinetic energy will juice the battery and give you 5 minutes of light using a trio of LEDs. You would probably be twirling something anyway, like your keys. The BunBun Eco Light should arrive this month for around $22 in pink, green, purple and black colors.

The emergency battery charger attaches to your iPhone or iPod either via the wire or using a direction latch on the RS001 model which eliminates the need to carry the wire.

Both models feature a retractable USB charger, dual-port USB car charger & AC wall charger and will give a full charge in about 5 hours. Three LED lights show you the charge status. You even charge both your iPod and the backup battery at the same time.

Stanley watch with built in LED flashlight

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2009

This flashlight watch from Brando is pretty neat. I’m not sure how useful it actually is, or even if it’s an official Stanley gadget, but any watch with it’s own flashlight is good by me.

It also features an alarm, backlight and a timer. At least you will always have a flashlight at the ready for those projects that you choose to build in the dead of night.

LEGO Minifig Dynamo FlashlightWe all love us some LEGO, whether in statue form or as a Foosball table, or whatever. This one takes a green approach, combining LEGO and a flashlight.

This 7″ tall Lego minifig has a set of white LED lights in its right foot that can be used as a flashlight. It’s powered by a dynamo, so you can charge it up by cranking the minifig’s left arm. Yeah, it isn’t really a minifig at 7″ tall. We know.

Darth Vader lightsaber flashlight

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2009

Darth Vader lightsaber flashlightThe lightsaber has taken many merchandising forms, but this one may be the most practical. This one is Vader’s flashlight stuffed with four bright LED bulbs and authentic sound effects. Sure it won’t slice anyone in half, but it will help you use the force to navigate through darkness.

It measures about 9.5 inches in length and is powered by 3 AAA batteries. So if a nerd gets lost in the dark, you’ll see them coming, swinging away and quoting the movies.

Light For Life now available

Posted in Flashlights by Conner Flynn on June 20th, 2009

Flashlight uses no batteries, recharges in 90 seconds5.11 Tactical has finally released their brand new flashlight known as Light for Life. It comes with three LEDs for backup, but its main selling point is the Flashpoint Power technology, which is basically an ultracapacitor energy storage system.

What this means to you is that it requires just 90 seconds to charge fully, then it will shine at 90 lumens brightness for up to 1.5 hours per charge. Impressive huh? You can choose from bright (270 peak lumens), standard (90 lumens), and strobe modes, depending on the circumstance. The LEDs have a 50,000 hour lifespan and were specially designed never to be replaced, while the flashlight itself was engineered to “offer 10 years of maintenance-free service under typical conditions.”

Battery Snaps turn batteries into an LED flashlightBattery Snaps are an interesting little gadget that turns a regular 9volt battery into a single-LED flashlight, by snapping onto the top. Just snap it on and use the button on top to turn on the LED light. Instant flashlight.

When the LED light stops working, that’s when it’s time to replace the battery. For $5, it comes with a 9 volt battery included. It isn’t going to light up a whole room or anything, but these would be handy to have for power outages.

Infrared flashlight records videoIf you are adventuring in the night and want to catch all your findings on video, this is the flashlight for you. You only have two hands.

The Infrared Video Recording Flashlight comes with 17 infrared LEDs to illuminate what’s ahead of you. The built-in camera will capture everything in 640 x 480 resolution at 30 fps, with 128MB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot.

Spotlight 12V Rechargeable LED Flashlight Review

Posted in Review by Darrin Olson on March 28th, 2009

Spotlight 12V rechargeable LED flashlightThe tough guys over at Spotlight were nice enough to send us a few samples of their their small rechargeable 12V flashlight to try out for ourselves we have to admit that we were impressed. Now, the Spotlight has but only a couple features and is no new radical cutting-edge technology but we would consider it a gadget nonetheless. Also, its refreshing to see a very simple and useful gadget come across the desk from time to time.

The Spotlight is just like it sounds; it’s a small flashlight measuring a mere 2 inches and weighing in at a svelte 1.8 ounces. What makes this little guy so handy is it’s small size which is by no coincidence the same size as many automotive outlets. The flashlight alone fit in 4 of the 6 different car outlets we tried and emits a glowing red light to let you know it’s charging. For those outlets that don’t quite fit, Spotlight provides a small length adapter and a Super Socket adapter (separately) to allow it to fit just about any vehicle.

Mag-Lite Flashlight could end up in your kids nose

Posted in Flashlights by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2009

Mag-Lite Flashlight could end up in kids noseKids love to stick stuff in their noses. (They also like to dig deep and pick stuff out, but that’s another story.) The little tykes will stick toys up their nostrils, candy, their finger, you name it. In fact, if there’s nothing nearby to actually stick up their nose, they often go into withdrawal, constantly sniffing and touching their nose while snorting, like a junkie checking themselves for powder on the outside.

Well, Mag-Lite is exploiting the phenomena in their latest ad campaign. Making “light” of it even. Maglite is launching their smallest flashlight yet named Solitaire, with these images of kids who breath light out of their nostrils.

Magnetic Light Mine is a hands-free flashlight

Posted in LED by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2009

Magnetic Light Mine is a hands-free flashlightThis flashlight is shaped like a typical underwater mine and it’s this shape that makes it so radical in design. The golf-ball-sized flashlight has a single powerful LED, with twelve points tipped with neodymium magnets.

That means it will stick to any steel surface, letting you light up more of the room. Great flashlight for lighting up tight spaces. And at only $9, you have to get one. You’ll never have to clutch your flashlight in your teeth again.
