They were selling a cheap little kit at a store that has a jeweler
screwdriver set with 10 bits, and it included a "penlight" LED
flashlight. Cost $2.99. I needed some of those tiny screwdrivers, so I
bought it. Screwdrivers work fine, but the flashlight is retarded. It
has NO SWITCH. After unscrewing the tip (head with bulb), I found a
piece of paper between the batteries and the bulb. [There are no
instructions]. After removing the paper, it lights up, but there is no
way to turn it off, except to put that paper back, or remove the four
tiny coin cells. Of course it's made in China.... I wonder what idiot

I've got a little one like that on a Cabela's mini multi-tool.
Have not used it but it still works after about 6 years.
Trouble with these little lights is that when batteries die you might as
well throw the light away due to replacement cost of batteries.

That's what I thought, but it dont work that way. It flickers, goes
off, but the moment I lay it down, the light is back on. If I unscrew
it more, the head falls off.
Considering that 4 of those tiny coin cells probably cost twice what I
paid for the whole deal, I may as well just save the batteries and bulb,
and toss the rest of it. The screwdrivers were worth what I paid anyhow,
so its no loss.... But why they make or sell something like this makes

unscrew the end, to get it to shut off. I never
really trusted those.
Even the mini mag (slightly unscrew to TURN ON) the
light tends to turn it self on when I don't want.
Like in a theatre in the dark.
Harbor Freight has a little light with the paper in
it. 99 cents, good price. I'd hate to be in the dark
trying to get the end off, and scrape the little
paper off (in the dark). Or, be in the dark and find
the light got bumped on, and the batteries are dead
and I'm still in the dark. Can't win some times.
