Joby Gorillatorch Flare – bendy magnetic roadside safety light

I’m a big Joby fan – we’ve recently reviewed their Gorillapod Magnetic, and I’ve carried a regular Gorillapod in my bag for several years. The latest product to leave their lab is the new Gorillatorch Flare.

The Gorillatorch Flare takes the best of the Gorillapod Magnetic and the original Gorillatorch, and turns it into a roadside safety product. Instead of a single LED light, the Flare offers one 100 Lumen CREE LED and three red LED lights, and can be used as a flashlight or strobelight.

With its bendy feet, you can use it to aid in changing a tire, or to warn other drivers that you are stranded on the side of the road.

The Gorillapod Flare weighs just 9 ounces and retails for $34.95. It is available from selected retails including and REI.
