I could understand rechargables if you use flashlights heavily everyday in your work (I'm thinking mining, PM security, etc), but I would use a big flash light once a week maybe..
The Inova T4 uses lithium batteries. I mislaid one of mine for over 6 months, and when I finally found it, the charge was enough that the light ran for over an hour. I don't recall what the state of charge was when it was lost, but I still think that is outstanding. I'm in law enforcement and need a dependable light. I've been issued a couple of Streamlights, and they are just OK. Their customer support is outstanding, though. I just wish that I never had to need it.

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."J.
