Default Re: Head and tail lights?

At the bicycle shop I paid $15 for a 3 LED flashing light. At the dollar store I paid $1 for a 3 LED flashing light.
Of course there is a difference in quality. Guess which one started acting funny after they got rained on. But the difference is hardly 15 to 1.
My point is that hobby/athletic equipment is always artificially inflated. If you buy a pair of thermal pants with a picture of a guy running on the label they are $20. If the guy in the picture is holding a shovel they are $7. Same pants, different targeted customer base.
