My thoughts exactly. I'm sure they're good, but are they $300 good?
I use my flashlights for hours at a time, on and off while camping or a few minutes here and there. I think it's retarded to spend $200-$300 for a light with 20-30 minutes of run time regardless if it's rechargeable or not. I don't want to carry 6 sets of batteries camping and keep them dry, or reach for the light in my truck and try to remember if I charged it recently.
If I want to stun a deer with my light I'll grab the 2mil spotlight behind my driver-rear seat!
