I bought these a while back from 1saleaday. They're not horrible, my for some reason my wife keeps losing the tops of them. There is no switch, so you have to unscrew the top slightly to turn them off. I wouldn't buy them again.

@joegould1111: Thanks for the heads up on these. I was considering them, but now I will pass.

well all you have to do is check it now and then so you don't lose the top. I just bought a second box. Love them!

@joegould1111: completetly agree with joegould. I bought them as well the last time I saw them, but they were from dailysteals or 1saleaday or somewhere. They were also only $5. They really are more of a novelty as you can't get a whole lot or real use out of them. Also, they come in an assortment of 12 different colors. For $5 I was satisfied. The lack of an on on-switch is a bit lame. Loosening the top to turn them off and on is pretty weak.

Oh I dunno. Not interested in these but as far as twist to turn on/off... so do the little (and pricey) mag lites. Built like a tank.

Had mine for much more than 20 years and it's still going strong. It's just twist to make contact. No switch to break, so for me that's a plus. YMMV

O you kids and your touch-screen type frames of reference. You don't remember when electronic devices all turned on by turning something: tee vees, lamps and the AM radio on my '55 Olds. And we liked it, damn it, we liked it!

I bought two 12 packs when they were on 1saleaday. I agree with the above poster about the tops coming off. Either that or they get turned on and the batteries die. Useful to put somewhere you may need a light, like your glove box or desk drawer, but don't figure on keeping on your keys and being able to use it when you need it!
