ok, i have been wondering this, especially after seeing the amazingly high prices of these lights compared to any other light: why are these lights priced so high and are they really better than anything else out there? i have never used one myself, but i am very curious as to why these are "so much better" than other lights available. really, what is it? are they lighter? do they draw less from the batteries and last longer? more durable? inquiring minds want to know.
