Walmart Toy

I was at my local wally world and this followed me home.  They had them marked down to $24.88.  The guy told me to try it for 30 days, and if I'm not satisfied to bring it back for a full refund.  Man I wish all the other lights I had came with that same guarantee.  It's rated at 2 million candlepower.  I'll play with it later tonite.  Does anyone know how long it will hold a charge?

...and so, later tonight, ILF will be found running around the woods shouting, "Phasers on Stun, Mr Spock"......Laughing

Yeppers!  Well this one is a lot more practical of a spotlight than the last one I bought.  But I did take some great photos last nite with that big spotlight I just bought recently before this one.  I sure love looking at this one. 

That big spotlight will smoke anything else I have.  But then again it should.

Almost positive there's an SLA in there.  If you google for info on them you'll find specifics, but I can say they should be charged fairly regularly (monthly is great, but 3 months is probably ok) and that you'll get a lot more cycles out of it if you only discharge to 80%, and NEVER below 50%.  

I just killed the sla in my monster incan spotlight by leaving the usb switch on for a few weeks (it has usb out so you can charge other things of its sla) ...only had 2 cycles on it Sad

I think I might use it as an excuse to upgrade to nimh or li-ion:)

Which it will never achieve.

"Candlepower (abbreviated as cp) is a now-obsolete unit which was used to express levels of light intensity in terms of the light emitted by a candle of specific size and constituents. In modern usage Candlepower equates directly to the unit known as the candela."

 

So it should throw easily 1.4 kilometers (~1550 yards)

Well it's not a bad light, but I think it's going back for a refund.  Not as bright as I had hoped.
