I own one of these and my bulb (the flashlight's silly, not mine) just burnt out. I've just started looking for a replacement. It probably lasted for a year. As the other reviewer mentioned, the cylinder containing the batteries is dead cheap. It's starting to rust inside, perhaps because it actually is part of the current path of the bulb+batteries. Unclear if this has anything to do with it going out,but it could conceivably cause the switch to fail at some point if it got bad enough. And it's actually a bulb, not a white LED, which in this day and age, seems kind of stupid because you're unlikely to ever need to replace the LED, and it can't be that much more expensive. The lens seems to be plastic but hasn't scratched yet. The bulb could be brighter. I may try to convert it to a white LED myself. Quality is marginal at the price. I'd say don't get one unless you can buy one or two extra bulbs at the same time to save yourself the aggravation, and if they're reasonably priced. I'd be content enough with it if it weren't for the bulb.
