Just been to Lidl for some milk and bought a rechargable LED lamp while I was there.
+ 12V incar adaptor
2.5 hours use if used cordless
And a 3 year warranty for only £9.99
ideal to keep in the car boot
i have a lidl one too, i bought one last year and it lasted well until i left it stuck(magnetic) to the bottom of a car on a test drive. i think it came off at around 60mph but survived pretty well, it just cracked the lense near the handle and carried on working for a few months but because of the crack flexed a lot and eventually broke the connections. i went down to Lidl yesterday to get some workshop tea/coffee supplies and was pleased to see they have them back in agian so grabbed a new one
I have a black and decker one
the current issue of "car mechanics" magazine has a product test on led hand lamps this month
their best buy was the ring ril2500 £29.99 from halfrauds
best budget was tesco 203-0146 £21.53
it may be possible to get the halfrauds one cheaper with a trade card
I've got an led rechargeable which I woulddn't be without. Lasts for ages on a charge. The light is very directional though rather than forming a good spread.
More led's doesn't necessary mean brighter. I have an 'Energiser' head torch selectable between 2 or 4 led's mounted behind a lens that is fantastic. Keeps your hands free, runs of 3 AAA batteries that last months even when used for a hour or so each day. The two led setting is the brightest.
Yep Sealey one here as well

i'll 2nd that, iv had one for 2/3 years and its been great
ive got 2
one is a thorsman lightstick about 40 bucks and worth every penny,
the other is long n thin leds all the way round, car charger and mains charger, cost about 30 quid, load of **** from jewsons.
ive missed placed my light stick and even at that price id by another, only down side is no car charger.
when you look at one you want a high mA rating on the batteries which should mean higher charge time and longer use time
