I bought one of these exactly 15 years ago. Yes, they plug directly into a regular electrical outlet for charging (in fact, I typically left mine always plugged in until I needed it). Problem was it didn't hold a charge very long, and when it did, there was a poor contact between the bulb/battery and I'd have to give it several hard whacks to get it fully illuminated.

I just decided to finally throw it away tonight. Won't hold any charge, looks like the battery went and likely not worth the cost to replace it.

I believe my father had one of these. Fairly dependable, but you're all right to some degree...either the battery wouldn't hold a charge or the bulb was almost impossible to replace/find in a store.
