Coleman(tm) also has a similar unit, but Sam's Club has it for $15,

Actually Wally-World has lots of lost leaders. They are usually very cheap junk just to get you in the store so you see and buy one of the other over priced items. They are not, inspite of their ads, the lowest in town. That's just another one of their m a n y unethical practices and why I don't go there.
