Just a few comments on the JOBY gorilla torch. This is a great light. Excellent brightness, expandable light pattern, fully adjustable. The magnets are very strong. You can stick it to the inside of an appliance or stand it on the floor. It also detaches from the legs for a handheld light. You can charge with the USB or the wall plug that is included. I'll still carry 2 lights with me but this is my favorite now. The only negative thing I have to say is that if its not placed right in your bag it will stick to your tools.

The battery life is good. I didn't notice any dimming after leaving it on for about an hour. I haven't had to use it any longer than that yet. It charges fast and it also has a brightness boost by holding in the power button.

OH NO. I found another one that looks promising. The price is a little high so I'll think on it awhile. http://www.griotsgar... work light .do

How are you liking this flashlight? I love mine it is amazing I just charge it when i'm in the car between a trip and it's good to go for a couple of weeks. The cree LED is really bright. The magnets rock and you can't beat having to not hold it while trying to diagnose with two hands. Just don't leave it stuck to the inside of a washing machine or dryer or oven. Enjoy!

Sounds like this light is a winner (Joby). I'm ordering one as well...

As Santa said, I used it today for an hour and it didn't dim at all ! I stuck it to metal pipes up side down, wraped it around electrical wires, etc. The only thing I would change about it is the type of latch that is used on the tripod...but still a great light !!!

Stinger, Rechargeable. Awesome flashlight. Just replaced the battery on mine after 3 years because it was only lasting about 2 days. Used to be good for the whole week. Super bright but dim-able.

Strion is equally impressive, just got one for a friend who did me a favor and if I had taken it home I would have had to buy another one for him.

I like the streamlight stingers. Fit in the pocket, super bright, truck rechargeable, and you can buy the piggyback charger that has a spare battery charged all the time, and room to hang you light to charge between calls. I have 2 set of them, they are absolutely my favorite lights. I like to krypton bulbs not fond of the LEDS.
That which does not kill me only makes me stronger.....at this rate I'll be invincible by Tuesday!
