Think of JordiLight as the Swiss Army Knife of lights. Whether you’re camping in the backcountry or fixing a pipe under your sink, you need something better and brighter than a smartphone’s flash. This utility torch ($100) functions as a handheld, headlamp, or magnetic attachment. With a max output of 3,600 lumens (the equivalent of that many candles) via 19 multi-colored LEDs—each of which can be controlled independently through touch or the partner app—JordiLight packs a serious visual punch, especially for a four-ounce device that rings up at $99. “Dollars to lumens, we’re the cheapest flashlight on the market,” founder Robert Haddad says. JordiLight is also equipped with a compass—you can program the lights to indicate direction—and a sensor that detects impact and triggers the SOS mode.
