I just went to Home Despot (SIC) and couldn't remember the Make/model you got and wound up getting the Husky 3 watt (Cree) tactical for $21. Seems Kind of bulky for a 3 AAA battery light, but packaging rates it up to 145 lumens.
Not as bright as my retina burner halogen home build, but probably enough to use as backup (batteries will probably last longer too). Also It's much easier to throw the new one on and go at a moment's notice...than have to plan 4 hrs ahead for freshly charged batteries that will last about 40 minutes a pop. (still need to spend the $$$ for a smart charger that so I can just leave the batteries for the halogen in and charging without worrying about burning them up)
I'll be testing it tonight on my commute home from work. If it does well I'll get another one for the wife.
Thanks for the heads up about Home Depot!
