I've only had this a few weeks, but it is 100% what I need for my work. It is super bright even on the lower setting. It runs for hours (longer than I've ever needed). It has the most useful tripod system I've ever seen. The magnetic feet are incredible! It has a focusable beam that can illuminate a large area. The light slips on and off the tripod easily and is held firmly in place when attached. It seems to have very rugged construction.

The only thing I can't speak about is the lifetime of the battery. I hope this battery lasts through many recharges because I like the rest of the light very much.

Update: 15 months of use now and I can't sense any drop in battery life. I'm not doing quantitative testing, but for my use it lasts more than long enough. I have had no problems with this light at all and would buy it again if I lost or broke this one.

Update: 24 months. Still going strong. I work in harsh industrial environments and this goes almost everywhere with me. I had to super glue one of the legs back to the base, but it was not broken, just the glue gave out of the slip joint. The magnets are great, but they do collect every metal shaving or iron dust particle they can find. Cleaning them of the iron debris is tough. The battery shows no sign of giving up. I am having some trouble with the charging port. I think it's just from over use (or abuse), but I have to apply downward pressure on the connected USB cable to get the flashlight to charge. It's easy to know when it's charging though (blue light in lens), so it's not a big deal. I would still buy this flashlight again if I broke or lost this one. That is the best complement I can give any tool!

everyone has covered all the aspects that make this flashlight great but i have discovered the best thing about this light is the fact it recharges via usb. i do a lot of camping/ off roading and have always hated carrying extra batteries for my high power led flashlights. this little gem just plugs right in to my 12v usb cigarette lighter adapter in my 4x4 and is ready for another night or two of fun. i just bought the item "Universal USB Mini Car Charger Adapter, White" for about $4.00 shipped here on amazon. if your smartphone or portable gps uses usb to charge then you can just use that. i have a couple of nice flashlights including the led lenser MT7 but i seem to always reach for the joby first, it just feels right in my hand. buy it you will like it.

This must be one heck of a flashlight for me to do a review. And it is... I cannot remember ever seeing a light as bright from such a small device. So, in a nutshell, here are the points that make this flashlight shine (pun intended):
- Completely rechargeable via either USB or AC current.
- Bright or brighter. It can run for 6.5 hours at 65 Lumens or 2.5 hours at 130 Lumens using the Boost Augmenter.
- The tripod legs are very versatile. Magnetized, they can be placed on a metal surface at just about any angle to shine exactly where you want it. You can bend the legs to wrap around a pole.
- Very compact size flashlight that can squeeze into tight places.
- The light aperture is adjustable to either focus the light tightly or over a wide range.

I've dropped screws into tight places and found the magnetized legs very useful in retrieving them. This little light will allow you to use both hands while working and see what you are doing. Off of the tripod, you will find yourself using this light for all of your other light needs.

So what should I review next--Scotch Tape?

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This was my first introduction to the Joby Gorillapod line of items, and I have to say I am impressed. I did not expect the tripod to be very sturdy, yet it works surprisingly well. The magnetic feet are quite strong, and can easily hold the light in many different attitudes with ease. it is fun to mold the flexible legs into various odd shapes, and actually quite useful in positioning the light in odd work areas.

The light has an (non-user replaceable) internal rechargeable battery, which can be good or bad, depending on your circumstances. Rechargeables are nice until they die, then you have to wait for them to get charged up again before continuing on your project. I prefer standard batteries, as you can always use a rechargeable one if desired.

The tripod and light are quite well constructed and feel solid in your hand.

The light is bright, and has two brightness settings. Changing between them is a bit tricky, as you have to hold the button down, wait for it to jump to the higher setting, then wait even longer while it decides if you really mean it about using the brighter setting.

The only other drawback I found was that the light does not lock into the holder on the tripod, and while not really loose, could get pushed out and dropped if one is not careful.

UPDATE: July 2011

The catch which (barely) held the flashlight on the stand has now broken (with almost no use), and the light won't stay in the tripod at all. Given the cost of this unit, I deducted star for that. I have also run into the problem which every user of a product with non-user changeable batteries will - it ran out of power when I needed it, and required a couple of hours hooked to a USB line to recharge.
