Re: LED spotlight with USB charger

I have not tried this model but have had several expensive 'military' type waterproof powerful pocket torches in the past. I have given up on them as every single one failss after about a year - usually the switch. I posted feedback on line via Amazon and never had a single response. The worst was a Fenix LD10 pocket torch. I hope you have better luck.

Ive got several from relatively dumb to smart, but my favorite is the one below. Lots of configurable options and operating modes. Also will run directly off 12V.

Its my fav for charging these larger capacity betteries too because you can crank up the charge output. Other chargers can literally take days.
