I bought a "million candle-power" spotlight specifically for working
uner our floor (spacious enough, but no lights).
I charged the light as directed, and found the charge lasted a very
short time (didn't note the actual minutes). Recharged, and estimate
"usable" light lasted less than 15 minutes and had to find my way back
to trapdoor in a feeble orange glow rather than brilliant light!
Maybe I overcharged, maybe didn't charge long enough, on first charge or
recharge. The "user guide" (skimpy and from PRC) tells me it's a "lead
acid" rechargeable battery, tells me how to plug it in for charging, but
says nothing about length of charge.
Can I have damaged the battery by over/under charging?
The light cost very little. Is it worth chucking this one away (after
two uses!) and buying another, or is this short battery life to be
expected from any of these cheap light so heavily marketed in DIY shops?
Thanks for any info,
