Best spotlight?

I am bewildered by all the choices of flashlights these days. I am looking for a good powerful handheld light for navigating channels at night and picking out marks, etc. LED or halogen? "Spotlight" shape or just a good strong flashlight? Rechargable vs plug-in cord vs ordinary disposable batteries? Marine brand vs "tactical" military types? How bright do I need (candlepower or lumens)? Got any lights you really love, or any lemons? Thanks in advance for your input.

The secret to sailing is good judgment. Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.
