Last updated 10-23-05

This LED-lighted ballpoint pen, labelled "HAVE A SPOOKY HALLOWEEN" on the side of the pen barrel, is a ballpoint pen in a painted (orange) metal body, that features a clever projection system that projects a full-color image of a Jack-O-Lantern in a white disk on walls, ceilings, or any other relatively flat light-colored surface you wish to aim it at.

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


Press and hold the button on the side of the barrel to activate the LED projector.

Release the button to turn the projector off.

To write with the pen, grasp it by the barrel under the shiny metal band 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 the same way and give it a gentle counterclockwise twist to retract the pen tip when you're finished using it.

To change the batteries, hold the pen so the point (the ink portion) is facing upward, unscrew the pen portion until it comes off, and throw it away...O WAIT YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.
Tip the open end of the pen upside down over your hand; tap it if that last cell just won't fall out. Dispose of or recycle the batteries as you see fit.
Hold the barrel of the pen horizontally in one hand, and slip three new LR41 button cells in, one at a time, with the other hand. Insert the batteries button-end (-) first. Once all three cells are inside, you can turn the pen projector-end down if you wish (open-end facing up), and screw the ink portion back on.

You can also stack all of the LR41 cells on top of one another on a counter, table, desk, or other flat surface; button-end (-) negative facing up. Lower the barrel of the pen over the cells, slide the whole affair to the edge of the counter, table, desk, etc. and place your finger over the open end of the barrel so those cells just don't clatter to the floor. Invert the barrel and your finger at once, so the open end of the barrel faces toward the ceiling or sky. Remove your finger, and screw the ink portion back on.

Aren't you glad you didn't throw away that ink portion now?

Measures 49.1mA on my DMM's 400mA scale.

Photograph of the pen's "business-end" - well, the end the light comes out of anyway.

This is a pen meant to be used as a pen in a dry area, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, and abused, so I won't try to drown it in the toilet, bash it against a steel rod or against the corner of a concrete stair, let my housemate's kitty cat's ghost go to the bathroom on it, run over it with a 400lb Rascal, or perform other indecencies on it that a regular flashlight might have to go through. So this section of the web page will be significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The pen / projector light is not water resistant, so a concerted effort should be made to keep it from falling in the toilet or drowning under your lawn sprinkler. If water does get in, just open it up 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.

What I find most unique about this pen is that projection system - it projects a full-color image of a Jack-O-Lantern (carved Halloween pumpkin) onto walls, ceilings, or other light colored relatively flat surfaces.

Projected image on a light-colored ceiling at ~4 feet.
