An absolutely perfect little light. Small & unobtrusive yet very bright. I have bought 7 of these so far. We are putting one in each bug out backpack, our medical backpack, on the zipper pulls of our sleeping bags, & on zipper pulls of our Gore-Tex parkas. I know I'll end up buying more, as I want t...

Well, the light works and is bright, but the always-on switch does not work. In order to produce light, you have to press both sides of the gadget so hard that it hurts your fingers. I personally am too puny of a weakling to keep this thing steadily lit for more than a few seconds. If you only need a second to get your bearings, that's okay I guess. I ordered three of these (one for backpack, one for keychain, and one for friend). Haven't tried backpack one yet but the other two both have the same problem. Also, the tiny jump ring provided for attaching this to one's keychain or etc. is useless due to the width and depth of the end of the gadget where you are supposed to attach it. You'll either need a different jump ring or to tie this on.
I would NOT recommend this, considering that there are so many similar products which work better. I am not going to bother returning them, as I got them on sale at deep discount so it's not worth it, and they do still produce a bright light; but these are definitely a sort of "last resort/emergency" type gadget. At least it will probably last forever, considering you can't really leave it on for any length of time.

Everyone should have one of these on their keychain! I did find the battery on the one that I purchased from STP to be a little weaker than the one that I purchased in a local store. But the one in the local store cost three times as much, and batteries are replaceable.

I got a couple of these to put on keychains. The on/off switch is a button, as well, such that if you push it down, it turns on until you let off. They call it a feature. I call it a design flaw; this happens in pockets quite a bit. It kept happening at a movie theater, to the point that I had to keep my keys in a shirt pocket. See, I wear nylon pants, and they don't stop light very well. It was annoying and, well, rude. I'm also not a big fan of the exposed bulb. If you're looking for a little tiny thing, you light up the room. It is inexpensive, bright, light and small, however. If they'd make it so the switch didn't push down to turn on, it might be a four-star product.
