This LED-lighted ballpoint pen, labelled "Light Pen" on the package, is a ballpoint pen in a plastic body, that features a blue LED in the upper half of the pen that shines through an acrylic diffuser in the barrel.

The ballpoint pen writes with black ink, and works whether the LED is on or not.

This look a lot like the Blue Light Pen?
Thought you'd say so...these products are very similar to one another.


Remove the translucent, milky white cap from the top of the pen first.

Press the button on the top of the pen until it clicks and then release it to activate the LED.
Do the same thing to shut off.

When finished with the light, place the translucent cap back over the button on the top; this helps prevent it from "going off" during storage or transport.

To write with the pen, grasp it by the barrel on the clear portion near the center of the barrel with one hand, and near the writing end with the other, and give it a gentle clockwise twist. The tip will extend. It writes in black ink, with the quality of a very good disposable pen.
Grasp the unit as above and give it a gentle counterclockwise twist to retract the pen tip when you're finished using it.

This product appears to be disposable, so I don't have to tell you which part to remove and flush away, then tell you *NOT* to.

This is a pen meant to be used as a pen in a dry area, not a flashlight meant to be thrashed and abused, so I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser- (or "lazer-") type device on a platform with a large readout, with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannoņata is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that I might inflict upon a flashlight. So this section of its web page will be rather bare, when compared to this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The pen is not water resistant, so a concerted effort should be made to keep it from falling in the toilet or drowing under your lawn sprinkler. If water does get in, just open it up as best you can without tools and dry out all the parts, and it should be fine.

The pen portion seems to be on par with any of the more expensive disposables available, and it writes with black ink.

Blue LED illuminated.

A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
