I found these while looking for a spotlight, 11 available. Is that a good price?

Not bad, but the shipping is excessive in MHO. You will likely need the rubber bevel to hold it on. What light are you going to put it on?

Heath is right the shipping kills you and you need that rubber grommet that holds the lens on too. Try looking at Wal-Mart they used to have some cheap rechargeable lights that had the red lenses. I think they were like $10. Otherwise for up at this end of the state you need a good 6 volt light.

Here's a light I'm thinking of getting that's 6 volts. It's much nicer than the one I have rigged up and you can get red light cover for this unit.http://www.fntpost.c...otlight Package

That's a 12 volt light. If you're hunting a 12 volt area it is legal to spot light from the vehicle. So then it would be a lot cheaper to pick up a normal corded spot light and run it from the vehicle instead of having to mess with a battery pack.

Actually the link prkprisoner provided is the 6volt version of their 12volt light and that would work fine. You may want to look at a second battery so that you could be charging one while using the other. Spotlighting requires you to keep the light on continuously so having an extra battery is very helpful.

I was studying the differences between the one John linked to and the the one prkprisoner linked to. The one John linked to is a bit less expensive ($10) and has a red lens cover already. But the charging is a wall unit. The one prkprisoner linked to is more expensive, doesn't have a red lens cover, but does have 12 charger. The 12 volt charger seems to me to be a very worthwhile item. The battery can be charged up between stands, or you can take a break and charge it up. The other, I suppose could use an inverter, but that would just be another expense. Both look good and I need to pick something up.

Braz, you can get a car charger for the one I posted. In fact any 6 volt battery can be charged from a cars 12volt system.
