Rechargeable handheld spotlight

My Sirius Cyclops light broke, battery can be replaced but housing fell apart. Any recommendations? Newer rechargeable lights have USB ports which can be used for charging unit or cellphones, etc.

Re: Rechargeable handheld spotlight

Wow, does it provide enough light? Many times i only use the 2x 36w led's i mounted on the bow rails. The handheld is used also to maneuver while placing decoys and to ward off other boats from running them over.

Re: Rechargeable handheld spotlight

Whoops I was thinking headlamp - I use a lot of rechargeable batteries for lights, flickers and mojos.

Handheld rechargeable is a Stanley light that is going on five years - put a string just long enough to loop through and hang on belt loop when gator hunting STAs.

Re: Rechargeable handheld spotlight

Yeah, that Stanley rechargeable is about as good a handheld as I've ever used. It's probably the brightest one I've owned over the years and holds a charge plenty long enough for any duck hunt I've ever made. Worth the money in my book.

Funny to think about it now, but back in the day a 4 cell MagLite was considered a killer light for duck hunting. Oh how far we have come.......
