I used my old Cyclops spotlight (non-Duck Commander one) for a long time and it was a reliable spotlight. I dropped that light a few times from the ladder on hard surfaces, and it kept working, until one day I dropped it again and it died. When I got this new Cyclops Duck Commander spotlight it had problems from day 1. There appears to be some issue with the spotlight not getting charged. So now it only works if it is plugged into the wall.
