Hey guys, new to the forums and I am overwhelmed with more info about flashlights than I ever thought possible.
I am in need of a sub-$100 small-ish spotlight that I can use for boating in the dark during duck hunting season. I am interested in something that can easily fit in my blind bag, something that will give me a good pencil beam out to about 100 yards, and something rechargeable so I don't have to spend $100's of dollars on batteries every weekend.
We used to use the cheap-o Wal-mart 1,000,000 candle power spots... but they take up a ton of room in my blind bag. Looking for a smaller, yet still powerful hand held spotlight.
On a side note: I just purchased a Browning Black Ice Hero 9V Xenon (200 lumens) and it seems to be about what I'm looking for. I'm not sure if I can use rechargeable batteries in it or not, though. (It came with 3 CR123A batteries). Anyone know if I can use the rechargeables or not?
