About

Wireless. Waterproof. Wearable. The Glowstone Flashlight is a tiny, ultra-bright and ultra-tough handheld light. It’s as bright as expensive high powered flashlights, yet just 1/2" (13mm) thick and a fraction of the price.

Glowstone has reinvented the everyday flashlight to be more compact, versatile and functional so it can be easily used for everything from DIY jobs, outdoor adventuring and even scuba diving!

 Its shape and design make it incredibly versatile and rugged. You can clip it to your belt, stick it to a wall, mount it to your GoPro or attach it to the Glowstone tripod handle. Whatever you’re doing, the Glowstone Flashlight will never leave you in the dark again. 

And we really mean rugged. This little guy can handle pretty much everything you throw at it. Its tough silicone case and ATEX rated design make it waterproof, heatproof, shockproof and gasproof.

This is the only torch you'll ever need.

The Glowstone Flashlight is wireless charging only, the benefit of which allows us to completely seal the Flashlight in the super tough, yet soft silicone casing.  

Underneath that soft silicone case, the electronics are mounted onto a thick aluminum substrate that gives the Flashlight a solid rigidity. This unique construction means there no mechanical join lines, weak points or leak paths in the smooth, soft and incredibly durable design. This also helps preserves the electronics and batteries from oxidisation, extending its life even further.

Glowstone Flashlight is IP69X waterproof and EX hazardous area rated. 

We choose silicone for a number of reasons, and it's part of the reason why this is a total reinvention of the flashlight. Silicone is both soft, highly durable and incredibly resistant to degradation from the elements, making it the ideal choice for sustained outdoor use. It's also made from silica that comes from sand, so it's more ocean-friendly than the plastic that's littering the world's oceans.

The Glowstone Flashlight is the first of its kind to pack so much power in such a small, durable and versatile design. You wouldn't think that we could pack so many fantastic features into such a small package, but we have!

The difference between the Glowstone Flashlight compared to a standard flashlight is staggering. To put it to the test, watch our video of a normal flashlight vs Glowstone Flashlight. See what happens...

Simplicity is the key to a great product and the Glowstone Flashlight is a testament to this. We wanted to make the user experience as easy as using a light switch in your home, so with a single button you can switch between the 8 modes.

Press the middle power button once to turn on the flashlight to 90 lumens mode.

Switch between various modes:

  • Press once for 90 lumens normal mode
  • Press twice for 300 lumens mode
  • Press three for 28 lumens 4 LED mode
  • Press four times for 7 lumens candle mode
  • Press five times for flashing mode
  • Hold button for the battery level
  • Hold button again for 900 lumens boost mode
  • Hold button again for strobe mode
  • Hold button again for SOS mode

To turn off the Glowstone Flashlight, simply hold the power button for 1 second and release.

When the Glowstone Flashlight does eventually run out of juice, it's ludicrously easy to get it back up to full power thanks to its wireless charging technology. Make sure the Qi wireless charging pad is connected to power via USB and then just place the Flashlight on top, a red light indicates it's charging which turns green when it's fully charged.

The Qi charging matt supplied with the flashlight can also be used to charge your mobile phone and other wirelessly powered devices.

What good is a flashlight if it's not practical for the job at hand? We've designed Glowstone Flashlight to be adaptable to your needs, interests and hobbies. It works with multiple attachments and mounts to be the perfect companion, whether you're a keen photographer, a DIY enthusiast or an outdoor explorer.

Thanks to the lightweight nature of the Flashlight, the nano-suction pad allows you to fix the flashlight to almost any flat surface. Just press it against the surface you want to fix it to and it'll stay there with nano-suction technology. When you're finished, it comes off smoothly and ready to be stuck to the next place.

Our Glowstone handle is specially engineered to have multiple functions and uniquely transforms to suit your needs.

Simply slide the metal collar up or down the handle to turn it into a clamp, a stand or even a grappling hook.

The holes in the handle aren't just for decoration. They can be used to clamp your torch to objects. Hang your torch from any nearby pipe, branch or pole and leave your hands free to get on with your work or play.

Transform it into a traditional flashlight handle for hand-use when you're on the move. Unlike traditional torches, you can pivot the Glowstone Flashlight to aim the light exactly where you want it, illuminating those hard to reach places. The perfect tool for the mechanic, builder, plumber or home DIYer.

You can also open up its legs to transform it into a tripod, also with directional fixtures to aim the light exactly where you need it. 

Get the perfect light when you're filming with the GoPro attachment. See the difference to your video footage when you have the power of the Glowstone Flashlight lighting up your scenes. 

The Glowstone Flashlight is the perfect photographers tool. It delivers a clean light output and a colour output of 5600k. It's CRI (colour rendering index) is an impressively high 95 and It also has a wide light spread like professional light setups produce.  Don't miss a moment, even in the dark!

Strap the flashlight to your arm or your belt with the clip to help you stand out in the darkness. Perfect for nighttime runners, dog walkers or workers at night.

The supplied slim-line clip comes with every pledge level. It easily slips round the flashlight, similar to a mobile phone cover. and enables the torch the be clipped, strapped and even hung through the hole on the back of the clip.

 The flashlight clip clips it to your clothes or belt just like a tape measure does.

For those interested in photography and filming, The GoPro flash screw mount has a 1/4 " Female thread which means it can be screwed onto your camera hot shoe mount in the same way as your flash.

With a colour temperature of 5600K, A CRI value of 95 and a linear array of high powered LEDS that emits a clean, even light output, the Glowstone flashlight is a shrunk down version of the expensive professional light panels used in photography and film shoots.

Need to see where you're going hands-free? Glowstone Flashlight can be attached to the head strap to make any tricky task in the dark a breeze.
