Does it just stay on all the time? Have you worked out a switch or something to turn it off when not in use?

on the little plastic case at the top there is a switch on the side of it but its sorta tiny.

I picked up two of those from a Dollar Tree, the do work pretty well except for two things...the LED casing cracks easily, and the flexible arm doesn't retain shape well. I greatly improved these things by inserting a strip of foil into the inner casing, and pushing it in to take it's form. I think I may have used a drop or two of superglue, but that may not be necessary.

yeah, after making this the case broke off and I just covered it with duct tape except the switch and LED. And you could probly wrap the arm with wire and that would fix that, or you could just get a different light.
