    I ended up finding one at the 3rd wal-mart I visited. They had several different lights, including a compact HID light that looked impressive. As someone pointed out, they are in the automotive section (near the fuses). The warranty card for the light is addressed to a place out of Florida called Baccus Global LLC here is a URL to their Website of Stanley tools http://www.baccusglobal.com/stanley.php

    Got to use it tonight. It's was a little foggy because of the rains. Light throws a GREAT beam out to 100yds. It's got good spill, it lit up the whole area around my pond (about 300ft X 300ft) it's throws a good beam out to 200yds. You could still see detail in the trees. It even lit up the trees at 300yrs but my eye sight isn't what it use to be. I'm guessing with binoculars or a rifle scope, you could see things with detail out to 300 - 350 yds. This is my first LED light (except for the $1.50 harbor freight special) I'm impressed. It's exactly what I wanted in a light. It's it's just shy of a Halogen or HID brightness, but for a $50 spotlight that's less than half the weight of a big stoplight, and longer battery life, to me, it was money well spent.

    I ran my FatMax last night until it cut off and didn't see any noticeable difference in output through the whole run. I'm really diggin this light . The heatsink definitely works, the fins got really hot! Now if I can only find one more of these things, my store is clean out.
    Thereís always a light at the end of the tunnel. Just hope itís not a train.

    I know That I'm kind of slow , but can you leave the FatMax plugin all the time, use it fore 15-30 min. and then keep it plugin for months untill the next time you need it ?

    I wouldn't leave it plugged in since the manual doesn't state if the charge completely terminates, but there really isn't a need to keep it plugged in since it has a lithium cell which has a very low discharge rate.

    I saw the 2000 lumen Stanley light at my local Walmart as well. Took a good look at it. Packaging claimed 72 minutes at full power. It said it ran on a 10 watt l.e.d.. It did have a Cree XM-L in it. It think it was $40. I realized pretty quickly that at best, it would put out about 1,000 lumens. Still, that's not a bad price for a bright rechargeable l.e.d. spotlight without a lead brick for a battery. 1,000 lumens would still be twice as bright as the waterproof one at Lowes for the same price. What you have to watch out for with these lights is that they often trickle charge the li-ion battery after it's charged which fries it quick. If you get these lights, just be sure to unplug them as soon as they are done charging so you don't fry the battery. I think what we have here is a permanent l.e.d. replacement for the "1 million candlepower" spotlight. While the hyped output stinks, I don't think the average consumer who buys a "million candlepower" spotlight is really going to notice.

    Hey could anyone here please tell me if they know if the new supposed 2000 lumen Stanley FatMax Lithium spotlight's charger works on 240 volts that we have here in Australia, and even better would someone be able to give me the specs on it, the charger that is.

    Nope! labeled: INPUT : 120v AC 60 Hz 9W. The pin is a little unusual too. You can cut the pin, Find a 12V, 500 mAh output wall wart locally for 240V. Cut the pin off and attach to your wall wart.

    Thanks for the info BVH as it is much appreciated. I never imagined that someone like you would be answering a LED question like this, as I had thought that you are mainly in to the much more powerful HID lights. What the hell are you doing with something like one of these.

    I've been known to dabble in the "Stanley" arts. Wally's place here on the Central Coast had 2 of these so I snapped them up. I left the other 2 of the other Fat Max to someone else. Wasn't that sporting of me?

    I picked one of these up for 59.88 I think it was as a boat light (good for finding my way back down the channel on moonless nights). Really impressive thrower for the price, IMO. Note that if you want 1/2 power, you can hold the power switch button when you pull the trigger and it will start off in 1/2 mode.

    Hi guys and girls. Total newb here. First post.

    I just picked up a FatMat at Lowes at lunch and it's an HID. Here are a couple of pics. I haven't even opened it yet!

    Whoa. Li-Ion HID from Stanley. I might have to ****can my old Stanley HID.
    1300 ANSI lumens, 30 minute runtime, and (2/3)64000 CD.
    And... Li-Ion charger circuitry built in.

    (35W for half an hour is ONLY 20watt-hours or so. Can we do better, CPF?)

    I checked the local Walmart here, and they had three of the 2000 Lumen XML spotlights and several of the 530 lumen models. Did they originally plan a sst90 light and switch it to an XML to save cost, while never changing the packaging? In most noncustom lights, Engrish for 750-800 Ansi Lumens is 1000-1100 Lumens. So this is supising.

    Anyone know of any UK retailers? I've looked in the usual places and some of the more unusual lol Our stores seem way behind in regards to illumination devices, apart from very specialist retailers it's still all mag and lenser stuff.

    Some Meijer stores have these lights. Meijer is a chain in and around Michigan.
    One store had some on the shelf marked 2000 lumens and the shelf tag price was $49.99.
    Meijer has some 'Santa Bucks' coupons good on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012 after Thanksgiving that should knock another 10 bucks off.

    Go to Meijer.com and plug in your info for the weekly ads. It is the Saturday Only sale with the coupons.
    The link I had posted stopped working.

    Sam's club in tyler TX has the 2000 lumen for $29.99.
    Edit ; it is the 2200 halogen model, not led but still seems to be a good deal. comes with home and car charger cords.

    saw a youtube review. I looks like a relabled black and decker spotlight . same case and controls. and price. B&D claimes 770+Lumens has the heat sink fins on the sides and ratching handle on top. Mines a great thrower. less volume of light compared to the roybiHID but lot lighter and smaller. would love a ryobi plusone LED spot. I like swapable batteries. the black&decker is mod# :LEDLIB.
    fl1RATED 775 LUMENS 633m100,267CD always reasy holds charge 12months.
    1hour hi7hour low.
