so what size battery(ies) does it take? AA, AAA? It doesn't look as if the battery(ies) are included.

I wonder how long it takes to recharge?
ah, thanks to the url above I see it is 12hrs the first time and 4hrs after that.
Higher prices AND crappier blanks, no thank you

What kind of battery does this have? NiCd? NiMH? Li? Makes a big difference on how it's going to work and how long it will last.
ah. two posts up. NiMH. Not bad choice. Should outlast the LED, which, from what I read, will last about 100hrs before fading off into oblivion.

A guy reviewed it here but don't bother registering to see the attachment like I did, it looks like a stock photo.

Very solid feel to it, just the right size to fit in your hand nicely, little bit heavy to hold in your mouth. BRIGHT. BRIGHT. BRIGHT. Easily equivalent to a 3-D maglite in near field, not quite as much range though, and no way to focus the beam, though it does have a nice double-pattern.
The lens colors are just colored plastic in a rubber housing, just slips over the end and the rubber holds them on. Never had one fall off on me, only ever used the red one though.
I used mine daily for almost 6 mos. and the batteries still held about 45 minutes of charge when I lost it.
I'm in for two.
THANK YOU, actual owner person. You truly deserve a Quality Post for that.
I am concerned about 2 things, hope you can opine on them:
1) NiMH (unless they are the new kind) do not hold a charge while sitting in the drawer, so did you plug this thing in and then grab it when you needed it, or did you recharge it regularly or what?
2) 85 minutes (or whatever it stated) is a horribly short run time for LED flashlights. You say this is really bright, is that worth the short run time?
I have several Princeton LED flashlights that cost about the same after shipping is added in, and they take replaceable AAA batteries. When I use NiMH, I get about 24 hours of use before the light output dims to less than I like.
Thanks, and I hope the mods see your post.
