Have to press so hard it hurts fingers

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.
