Gorilla Torch for those hard to reach dark places

What’s generally easy to do without a torch, can be pretty much impossible when you also have to hold a torch to light your workspace, mmmm very frustrating!

Fear no more for here is the Gorilla Torch, made by Joby (the geniuses behind the Gorilla Pod). The Gorilla Torch is the same kind of idea: a tripod with adjustable segments that enables you to literally wrap it around anything to hold it in place. It’s LED based light is superbright and also has a built in dimmer switch to adjust to the users liking. It’s weatherproof and operates on thee AA batteries with an average battery life of 20-80 hours depending on how bright you like it. It also has magnetic footpads meaning that even if you drop something metallic in a difficult to reach spot the gorilla is on hand to help.

Compact Mirror Torch

This is neat, it’s a compact mirror and torch in one, so if youre ever stuck somewhere dark and in need of a bit of lip gloss, look no further with this mirror torch combo. Personally, I think it’s just pretty cool to have a torch in your handbag anyway. It comes with 3 uber bright white LEDs, 2 mirrors magnifying (eeek not flattering) and standard (much better) and it comes in pink.  You also get 2 long life Lithium batteries included.
