I had a flashlight with a switch similar to this (not exactly swipe-to-activate), and my problem was accidental activation. I got a lot of "Are your pants glowing, or are you just glad to see me?". Also, I went through many batteries.

For my money, the absolute best pocket flashlight is the Streamlight Stylus Pro. It's lasted for years, it takes AAA batteries (which are easy to find as rechargeables), and it's shockingly bright.
