Was wondering if anyone can give me any thoughts or experience of the latest (2012) cradle-rechargeable flashlights -- I'm thinking specifically the Streamlight SL20-L, Inova T4R and Fenix RC10. This will primarily be my car/outdoor light. The latter two are smaller and use Li batteries, which I generally prefer but worry could be killed over time by being left in a hot car (I'm in SoCal). The SL20 is bigger, uses an NiMH battery (which also has its disadvantages and takes longer to charge), but obviously out throws the other two and can double as a hammer
The big question for me is how good is the RC10 in real-world use compared to the others? I used to have an older Inova T4 rechargeable and it seemed pretty solid with a nice switch feel, and obviously the SL20 is a tried and tested tank of a light. The RC10 dual switch system seems like overkill and being such a new light there's no indication of long-term reliability.
Any comments appreciated.
