'''Priced way too high'''
 
There are dozens of flashlights available that have specs similar to or better than Hexbright Flex and many cost $40 or less. Some offer a lifetime warranty. And several even have CREE LEDs like Flex: [http://www.amazon.com/Tactical-LED-Flashlight-High-Lumen-Waterproof/dp/B00CB4UCW4/ref=lp_2445457011_1_19?s=hardware&ie=UTF8&qid=1412443196&sr=1-19|Example]
 
The ability to program the flashlight is a cute add-on, and something I would probably spend no more than a half hour or so playing with. That hardly justifies the double or triple price point. You can nitpick on a few specs, but I think most buyers would choose something that is 98% as good when it is 1/3 the cost.
 
Sell the Flex for $49 and I will buy one immediately, and I'd probably buy one or two as gifts. But $130??? I just can't justify it.
