Either you use it to get some extra light when shooting pics or as an emergency flashlight, he regular flash installed on most smartphones out-there could use a bit of extra juice.

The Iblazr connects to most devices out there including iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows smartphones, tablets and laptops via a 3.5mm plug (the same plug as your headphones) and features 4 high-power 80+ CRI LED‘s capable of outputting a 70 degree light beam of 5,600 K color temperature and providing up to 270 Lux at 3.3 feet (1 meter).
