Well, before x-mas I ran into the "Free" rechargeable 1 million cp hand held spotlight at PEP Boys. I guess there's a reason it was "free" ($7.00 w/$7.00 mail-in rebate). The charge does not last very long at all, mine go's about 1/2 hr. or so than it's gone. Still a good thing to have plugged into a socket for emergency's I guess, but that's it. So if you missed it don't sweat it, not that great. Just felt the need to post.
