Everything in the world is expensive these days, especially electronics... it all depends on the amount of time it runs and whatnot.

One of the reasons for them being expensive is because people buy them rarely. And if they are going to buy one then they really need it, so they are going to pay to get one.

They are made of special chemicals and cells, and they have mercury in them which is hard enough to get.
