Sometimes the most useful and impressive results come from the most unlikely partnerships. Despite flashlights and pens often sharing a similar shape, no one's managed to put them together well in the same tool. And while a poor effort can easily end up ineffective in both applications, Manker's taken the best parts—especially the parts EDCers like—from tactical pens and flashlights and put them into the PL10. It's a compact multi-tool that's no jack of both trades.

The PL10 seeks to hit 3 EDC nails on the head: the need for a pleasant and pocketable light, the usefulness of always having a pen, and the robust construction for tactical use in an emergency. As a light, the PL10 comes with a hi-CRI Nichia 219B LED, pushing out up to 120 lumens in a versatile, floody beam. It uses a rechargeable 10180 lithium battery as a power source, which you don't have to worry about replacing since the PL10 comes with a built-in charging port and USB cable. On the pen side the PL10 uses a black refill cartridge. While it does serve to keep the tool compact, this unfortunately means it's a refill you'd have to replace direct from Manker. It's a bit of a compromise, but the two included refills should last you quite a bit.

For tactical applications, you get IPX-6-rated fit and finish in a solid stainless steel body. It's knurled with a deep diamond pattern, with fins and grooves that give added grip when used as a pen or striking tool. A tungsten tip on the cap also gives the PL10 glass breaking ability should you need it. Said cap also comes with a smooth pocket clip that lets you easily carry the tool as you would a light or pen, making it easy to EDC, especially at only 2.1 ounces with its battery.

Whether as a light or a tactical pen, the PL10 means business for both departments. Pick one up from Amazon at the link below, or direct from Manker here.

Not available, and make it so this takes Fisher cartridges and I'll buy a thousand of them.
What we need is 1. Durable. 2. Pocket sized (small) with 3. Clip built in, and a 4. Light, and finally; 5. Standard Cartridges...
I prefer Fisher write-in-rain, fine or medium, but then I have to work in the field in the most difficult conditions sometimes.
Make or find THAT pen, and you will both earn and make a fortune.

Make it in raw copper or lead free brass with a small international --or even proprietary refillable--with a fountain nib and take my money. Hah

Manker is truly disappointing from a service perspective. I purchased an E14 2 Nichia that did not operate. I had to pay to ship the unit back to Manker. They sent the damaged unit back to me claiming that there was no issue with the light. I purchased a new battery for the unit, which also did not work. They have refused to replace the light. They have said that if I want to pay to ship it back to them, they will inspect it again. The light cost $69.00 , the first return cost me $17.00. It would be at least that to return it again. Never again will I purchase a Manker.

Thanks for the heads up! We've added a link to Manker direct as an alternative in the meantime.
