Sometimes you need a light that you can set on a table. Sometimes you need a light you can strap to your forehead. The 130 lumen Gorillatorch Switchback just happens to be both.

The Switchback's main module has 5 LEDs—one XP-G LED spotlight and 4 white and red LED flood lights—which are adjustable from 5 to 130 lumens. But it's where you can put that module that things get exciting. Clip it to a supplied headband and it's a headlamp. Pop it in the supplied shell and it's a lantern. Pop Gorilla's signature magnetic spider legs on that lantern and you can wrap this thing pretty much anywhere you damn please. $60 over at Joby. [Joby via Uncrate]

having tried a number of these dual solutions i can say simply that its better to have a headlamp AND a latern. Buy a Princton Tec quad and a Black Diamond orbit, you'll be happy you did. The trouble with the 2 in ones is that you have to carry around spare parts. Who wants to build a lantern when you need light? just pop on your headlamp and whip out your orbit, done.
