I agree wholeheartedly.

The RadioShack one I think I listed long ago takes some oddball 12v, N-size battery that it only available at RS or for some obscure shock collar for a dog...coincidence? In any case, anything with better battery options and delivered to your door for literally pennies is a great deal for a toolkit, IMO...
