Over 50-Percent brighter than its predecessor, the new GorillaTorch 100 allows you to cast a focused beam of intense, 100-lumen light to illuminate any target while keeping your hands free. With its flexible, wrapable legs and powerful magnetic feet, the GorillaTorch 100 will attach to just about anything, so you can use it in ways you could never use a traditional flashlight. Secure it to a tree-branch to illuminate your camp kitchen, pop it under the car-hood when checking the engine, or straighten the legs and use it handheld while taking a hike. Durable and water-resistant, the GorillaTorch 100 adapts to shine in any environment-your imagination is the only limit.
Top customer reviews
- The 3 articulating legs allow you to position this light in lots of different ways, from standing it like a mini-tripod mounted light, to wrapping the legs around a tree branch, door handle, over the back of a chair or seat etc. In addition, the ends of the legs are magnetic (magnets sealed in a hard rubber, or is it a soft plastic?). The magnets are strong enough to allow the light to cling upside down to a steel surface, or even sideways on a vertical surface.
- Uses 3 AA batteries. Convenient and easy to find everywhere. I use Eneloop XX's in it for the low self discharge so it'll always be ready to go when I need it, even if it's been sitting unused for a bit, plus the higher capacity for continuous use.
- Puts out a good amount of light. The light has 3 settings which are scrolled through by the single Power/Mode button. The light cycles from Off, to Low (claimed 12 lumens for 80hrs), Med (claimed 55 lumens for 50 hours), High (claimed 125 lumens for 20 hours), Strobe, Red and Red Strobe, then back to Off with each consecutive button press. It can also memorize the last used mode by holding the button down to turn it Off. If you just click the button anytime the light is On, it will cycle to the next mode. From whatever mode it's currently in, if you press and hold the button for a few seconds (~2-3 seconds), the light turns Off immediately, and the next time it's turned On, it will turn on straight to the last used mode (even if it was a Strobe mode). The body doesn't really get warm at all even when left in High Mode.
- Beam. I would describe this as a floody beam. Unlike the standard GT (Gorillatorch) which uses a reflector, the GT Flare uses a lens/collimator. With a reflector, you generally get a very bright but narrower hotspot plus a much wider but dimmer spillbeam surrounding the hotspot. Depending on the reflector and light source, this could lead to a 'ringy' beam where shining the beam on a wall will show varying rings of light and dark for an uneven beam. Lights like the Joby GT Flare that use a lens on the other hand, tend to produce a beam that is far more even. There is no real hotspot and/or spillbeam. It's just one bright (depending on the brightness setting) circle of light with a defined edge. The beam DOES have artifacts due to the lens, where the edge tends to exhibit some rainbow coloring, but the majority of the beam produces even, cool white light. Placed so the face of the light is 12" away from the wall, it produces a circle about 10.5" in diameter (21" circle from 24" away etc.). The even beam makes it a great task light as you can select your preferred brightness setting and everything in the circle of light is evenly lit, as opposed to most reflector based lights that will illuminate whatever is in the center hotspot much brighter than the things in the spillbeam.
- Price. Comparatively speaking, this isn't a very expensive light at all, coupled with the flexibility (literally and figuratively), it's one heckuva light.
- It's not waterproof. It might be able to stand up to a light drizzle, but it won't be able to take any sort of dunking, and I'd put a plastic bag over the body of it if I had to use it outside in heavy rain (to change a tire in the rain at night for example).
I'll update the review after some runtime tests to see if the runtimes are anywhere near the manufacturer's claims.
Well surprise, surprise, the runtimes aren't anywhere near as good as the manufacturer's claims. Still somewhat decent I suppose. Using Eneloop XX batteries that all measured in the 2350mAh range off a Maha C-9000 charger, I get about half the manufacturer's runtime claims on the High and Medium brightness modes. (Claimed 20 hours on High, measured ~12 hours progressively dimming. Claimed 55 hours on Medium, measured ~25 hours).
Deducted 1-star for exaggerated runtime claims. Overall though, still a very versatile light.
took it camping and wrapped it around a tree about 20 feet away and it lit up the saute pan amazingly well, the grill got a bit of peripheral light and the rest of the table that the grill was sitting on was dim and shadowy, but we could still see.
if you need an ultra-bright laser, this is your flashlight!
If Joby made a regular flashlight with this technology (dimmer switch and all) then I would buy several!
The new 125 Gorilla Torch Flare can't be beat for walking at night out here in the country. It gives three soft beams of light, the brightest covers a large area with the soft but ample light pattern. I will carry it in the car/truck for added safety at night. The red flashing light setting is no toy. The magnet legs are strong so the Joby can be stuck to just about any metal. Battery life goes on and on!
The seller couldn't be better, in my opinion.
