Apparently, at some point when we weren’t looking, a Gorillapod snuck into the flashlight camp, and now we have the Gorillatorch. It looks like a Stanley™ SquidBrite, but uses three AA batteries instead of the 3.6V, 1.3Ah NiMH rechargeable battery in the SquidBrite. The SquidBrite has 20 LEDs, while the Gorillatorch has a single 65-lumen Cree LED. Both flashlights have adjustable light output (the Gorillatorch has a dimmer switch; the Squidbrite has a high/low option plus a flashing mode), flexible tripod arms that can wrap around objects, and are magnetic (the SquidBrite’s back and the Gorillatorch’s feet).
The Gorillatorch and the SquidBrite can be found online starting at around $26.
Any Toolmongers out there have experience with the Gorillatorch or the SquidBrite? What did you think?
