A surrealistic blue glow emanates from this gorgeous pen, almost making it look like a blacklight. If you've seen those glow in the dark necklaces and bracelets at summer concerts and fairs, this is very similar in appearance, except the pen is of course battery operated.
This may be a very good, and at the same time totally unusual, gift idea for someone special, as these are the very same high-quality premium version sold in upscale chain stores (for a lot more money than here, naturally).
Both men and women seem to like them....at one time I thought it would fall into the 'gadget' category and be vastly preferred by men buyers, but not so, as it turns out.
One fun use has obviously been at Rave parties. A pen can be dropped in a shirt pocket........it easily glows right throught fabric, giving off a 'radioactive' looking aura; we first saw this at a waterfront restaurant in Marina del Rey, Ca. which was hosting a party for a renowned researcher -- both he and the waiters were having a field day with it.
What's really killer about this pen, though (and we never suspected this until an customer brought it up....duh) is that you can screw off the main barrel very quickly and voila ! you have a bright blue or red pocket FLASHLIGHT (see picture left). It's so bright to look at with the naked eye, it's almost like looking at a laser.
Obvious, and entirely practical uses abound. Have one handy for use in a darkened boat, car or airplane cabin, or for that matter, anywhere constrained light levels exist. Those that jot down late night notes or record their dreams will be all set with this.
In case you want this for a gift, it comes in a nice black case with transparent plastic top, including instruction sheet, all of which is inserted inside a protective shiny black cardboard sleeve.
These are brand new and never used. Upper barrel and cap are METAL, not plastic.
Plus, we make it a point to pretest all outgoing items before actual shipping to reduce the chances of snafus to near zero.
Powered by a single high intensity super-intense L.E.D. originally developed and patented in Japan (no one else had them originally).
When they first debuted they retailed for anywhere from $17.00 to $ 24.00 depending on location and availability, and of course now the price has dropped considerably from that level.
By the way, don't count on ever seeing a dead bulb: 10,000 hours is fairly standard on these, so be prepared to wait a very, very long time for that event.
The on/off switch is built into the thumb clicker at the top, and the refill mechanically retracts by twisting the barrel. It sports a very eye-appealing and universally favored hard metal top.
AG10 batteries ARE included by the way (it takes three).
Black ink is standard.
And do keep in mind these are the original premium version light pen, built like a tank and made to last, with a metal top end, and silky-smooth twist action to engage or retract the refill.
Police or other law enforcement work, for writing at night.

SUPERSONIC, and on good days, LIGHTSPEED shipping
Items usually fly out of here straightaway, and with great fanfare
(fireworks, marching band, dancing girls, that kind of thing),
so your friendly mailman should be ringing your doorbell soon after.
Buyer Quote :
"Tell the truth-it was in the mail BEFORE I ordered, right ?"
"Seller employs delivery methods years ahead of our time"
"Dude, the quickness of your response borders on scary, but I certainly appreciate it."
And this, just in:
"Can't believe this. Immediately after I hit the 'pay now' button,
my doorbell rang. The package was at the door. Go figure."

Awesome double rainbow, as seen from our 3rd floor computer room window
( Dec 22, 2010 )
We were sponsoring the weather that day.
Usually orders zoom out of Mission Control here either same or next day as
receipt of payment (before about 3 p.m. PST usually makes it out that day).
California residents expect to add sales tax at checkout for the gods of commerce here.
Our elected leaders of all that is need new limos, jets, other stuff now and again. Hope that's ok.
