Can't open the battery compartment EDITED,
This review is from: Joby Gorillatorch Original Adjustable And Flexible Tripod Flashlight (Electronics)
I have a Gorilla tripod for my camera and thought I would give this torch as a Christmas gift - sadly a combination of 8 adults and 4 children have so far been unable to actually open the battery compartment in order to use the torch - it will not budge!
If there is trick to opening the battery compartment, we are all missing it - if you can help, please comment on this review, we need the help!
Until we can open the battery compartment I have to give this torch a single star simply because we can't use it!
After much effort and the assistance of a musician (strong hands!) the torch was opened. After the initial opening the battery compartment is easy to open and close with a simple twist - but that "factory seal", if you will, almost led to us returning the torch as unusable.
Now the batteries are in I can say that this is a very useful torch - the light is bright and can be adjusted, and the magnetic feet and jointed tripod legs allow the torch to be securely positioned almost anywhere you may need light! Wonderful little device - five stars (minus two for being so very hard to open initially).
