It sports a halogen spotlight with the equivalent of 15 million candlepower and a rechargeable battery to run the spotlight for up to 11 hours, a swiveling 1W LED spotlight and soft area lamp, a built-in handle and stand, and a nylon carrying belt.
If you're prone to getting lost, maybe it's time for a personal GPS device.

Combining GPS technology and a digital compass, the weather resistant BackTrack features just two buttons and simplified user interface, and can store and find up to three locations. Once a location is recorded (car at the mall, hotel room in Vegas, etc.), all it takes is just the push of a button to navigate back to where you started.
