I bought the Waypoint® for my father for Christmas. His other cordless spotlights were rechargeable and lasted less than 1 hour per charge and eventually quit holding a charge at all. The Waypoint is not rechargeable, but with a set of alkaline batteries it will burn bright for close to 8 hours of constant use and you don't have battery memory issues that eventually come with over charging. The Waypoint is not as powerful as a 1+ million candlepower spotlight running on DC power, but in my opinion when portability is a requirement it is more dependable than a rechargeable spotlight. Overall a good buy!
