Video + Written Review: Wuben Gecko E61 > “Multifunctional and Tactical Penlight" – 130 lumens - 4 tips
This is my Unboxing / first impressions video and my written review about the Wuben Gecko E61multifunctinal and tactical penlight!
The Wuben Gecko E61 was sent by Wuben for review. As mentioned in the video, and as informed by Jelina, to whom I thank, this is a “review sample version, not the final sales package” .
You can find some more information about it here (non-affiliate):
Here’s another video review (in German):
The ‘Gecko’ E61 is technically a pen and a flashlight, therefore, a let’s call it a penlight! We can also name it a multifunctional tactical pen!
It arrived inside a “special” box, along with a (60cm) , extra (inkless and stylus), and a simple with some general information on the specs.
Aesthetically, I find it nicely done. Most part of the body is , having parts namely the pocket clip, rotatable head and the rotatable head’s side pads.
Ergonomically, for my hands and handwriting style, it fits and suits me well, with those “pads” helping on the location of index and thumb fingers.
The Wuben Gecko E61 is made of and has a very solid feeling, which may be due to the one piece body structure, where the rotatable sections will couple. It is and it is rated at .
In the middle of the body, this penlight also has a (eventually removable) , which can be pretty helpful in case you need an emergency “work light” (when the light section is open).
Weight and Size:
In the front side it has the , constituted by in which you can screw-in : stylus, inkless, ballpoint, and zirconium (aka “the glass breaker”).
About the ballpoint pen itself, it has a…small refill, which I think can be replaced by almost any common refill with plastic tube (not metal). I thought it would have a bigger refill but… I guess we’ll have to look to this penlight for its multifunctions beyond the writing
On the rear side it has a where the , the and are placed, and it also has a non-detachable (or screwed-in) . The rotatable section has 2 “detents”, on the 180º and the 270º degrees. However, it can be use almost at any inclination once it is open.
It has a built-in , a side e-switch covered by a . I am not able to identify 5 LEDs, I can only tell that it has , and LEDs.
One thing I like about this penlight is that the lights can be turned ON and used even when it is closed due to the “hole” through which we can see the leds. So, it doesn’t need to be open to be used.
About the User Interface, I can tell that it has (Low-Medium-High) and a in which there is “blinking blue” > “blinking red” > “blinking blue & red” (repeats).
It has for all the modes.
- Turn ON / OFF: from any level/mode
- Change white light levels: from ON,
- Enter blinking mode: from ON or OFF ,
- To change from blinking mode to white light: from ON,
Concerning Output and Runtimes, according to specifications:
output is 3 lumens for 15 hours
output is 30 lumens for 2.5 hours
output is 130 lumens for 1 minute + 40 lumens for 45 minutes
To operate the “head”, you need to make a , and then…rotate it to the other tip and lock it again! Done!
About the process, the cable needs to be plugged in into the USB port located in inner side of the lights’ rotatable section. When charging, the light on the e-switch will be , and when charged it will turn to .
When turning ON the lights, if the battery is almost full, the led on the switch will be . When the battery has already been used, the switch will 9 times. And I guess that when it is more drained, it will be and/or , but I didn’t use it that long to know yet
Altough I can measure it, the White LEDs are not High-CRI. They are , but maybe due to the “diffuser” they have protecting them, the beam is what I would call “pure white”. .
The beam supposedly reaches 8m distance (maybe a little bit more on High, but not much).
It on any white light mode. The blinking mode…well, it is already blinking
With the light section open! To change modes, we need to press the switch up there, in the upper edge of the light section…
With the light section closed. This way, changing modes is easier, as the switch stay in a good position in the middle of the pen body.
Beam pattern, don’t pay attention to the “supposed to exist” light difference.
Some tint comparison!
Left to right:
Vs RovyVon E200u – 2 x XP-G3 S3 (under 2 clear TIR optics)
Vs Wuben TO50R – 4 x Samsung LH351D (under clear quad optic)
Vs RovyVon A23 – Luxeon V2 (under frosted TIR optic)
And about functionality!
The difference from Medium to High is not much in terms of eye perception, but it increases alittle bit, what is useful in some situations. For most of the time, I guess Medium will be enough, though.
The blinking colour mode is actually…not necessary. Nor when writing, not when doing other things, but here’s a capture. Now imagine it “strobing”
Illuminating something at close range! The floody beam is pleasant to the eye, but is really just for close illumination !
Just a slight comparison with other…pens and among the Wuben family!
This is my first “multifunctional tactical penlight”! It is an item, and I do appreciate the .
I don’t actually see a point on using blinking modes on this penlight, I’d rather have non-blinking blue and red, or, instead, some High-CRILEDs. Also, I’d rather not have memory for the blinking modes, once they can be accessed from OFF with a double click
I do like the click ON – click OFF operation, and I also like the magnet it has, specially for emergencies when a working light can be useful!
I wish the ballpoint refill was a bit bigger, to make the pen more…pen!
Despite this, I think this is an interesting and useful multifunctional pen that although a bit “gimmicky” can have a real use, even as back-up pen/light!
This said, I thank again to Jelina and Wuben for this opportunity to review the Wuben Gecko E61!
Thanks for looking!…

REVIEW – Unless you’re a nocturnal animal, it’s hard to see what you’re writing when it’s dark. WUBEN decided that having a built-in rechargeable light on an EDC style pen would be a great idea to fix that problem. Let’s see if they were right by taking a look at the WUBEN Gecko E61 Rechargeable Penlight.
What is it?
The WUBEN Gecko E61 Rechargeable Penlight is an anodized aluminum bodied pen that has a built-in rechargeable LED light and a dual pen tip design.
What’s in the box?
- WUBEN Gecko E61 Rechargeable Penlight
- micro USB cable
- 4 black ink refills
- stylus tip
- ballpoint pen tip
- inkless pen tip
- window breaker tip
Design and features
With its sci-fi style, the WUBEN pen is available in 3 colors including silver, black, and the blue version that was sent to me. The pen features a sturdy pocket clip and a unique dual-sided nib with replaceable tips.
By default, the Gecko E61 pen is set up with a window breaker tip and ballpoint pen tip. But included in the box are additional tips for a stylus and inkless pen.
Notice the ink refills? I’ve never seen refills that little. They have a whopping .25 inch of ink in them so you’re not going to be writing much with this pen if you prefer ink. And as far as I can tell, you can only buy more refills directly through WUBEN by contacting their customer service (there isn’t a page on their site to order them).
Maybe that’s why they include an inkless tip. This tip is like a pencil that lasts forever and never needs to be sharpened. But it doesn’t really write that dark and writing with it isn’t all that enjoyable because it’s not a smooth tip. It feels like you’re writing with a nail on paper.
When it comes to pens, having multiple tips isn’t really that unusual, but a pen with a built-in light is a bit more unique and the WUBEN pen has both.
The pen has a bar of white, blue, and red LEDs that peek out from one side of the pen and can provide up to 130 lumens.
The pen has three brightness modes and also an emergency beacon mode that uses the red and blue LEDs.
Did you notice the round disc in the center of the pen’s body? That’s a magnet that can be used to attach the pen to a steel surface like the hood of the car or my super cool custom metal bulletin board.
Flip the WUBEN Gecko E61 Rechargeable Penlight over and you’ll see the power and mode button for the light.
The light bar can unfold 270 degrees from the body of the pen to access the micro USB charging port.
While the pen is being charged, the power button glows red and turns blue when fully charged, which takes about 2 hours. You can also triple-click the power button to turn on “breathing mode” which pulses the LED behind the power button. The blue LED will “breathe” to show you where the pen is and it can do that for up to 5 days before the battery dies.
|Lumens||130 lumens||30 lumens||3 lumens|
|Run time||1 + 45 mins||2.5 hours||15 hours|
Does the WUBEN Gecko E61 Rechargeable Penlight pen function as a pen? Yes, it does, but I would not call it an enjoyable experience. You’re not going to use this pen as your everyday writer. But for a quick note or checking off lists, it works fine.
It is cool that you can unfold the flashlight to shine some light on what you’re writing.
What I like
- Built-in rechargeable flashlight
- Replaceable tips
What I’d change
- Sell replacement ink refills on Amazon
- Lower the price
I’m a fan of all sorts of pens and mechanical pencils and am always on the lookout for unique types and styles of pens. At first glance, the WUBEN Gecko E61 Rechargeable Penlight is unique with the built-in flashlight and dual-tip mechanism. But is it EDC worthy? In my opinion, I say no if you’re wanting a good pen. But if you want a clip-on flashlight that has a built-in emergency beacon that can also occasionally be used as a pen, I’d say maybe. At least until you run out of refills for it because that is the biggest fail of this pen in my opinion.

E61 wuben gecko
Such a pain. What a piercing pain. I'm torn all over inside. Aah.WUBEN Gecko E61 Rechargeable Every Day Carry Penlight
He was somehow, as she thought then, the sex machine did not stop, kept the rhythm and, it seemed, it was not at all difficult for him to hold almost the entire weight of her body, bending on the floor with his bent legs in order to enter her deeper. He did not put her on the floor until she came, trembling in his hands, squeezing his wide cock with her vagina.
Only then, having washed off the droplets of sweat that had come out of her, he transferred her to the room, where he lowered her to the floor, turning her back. To him, and laid her half on the bed. She felt his tongue slip between her buttocks, one of which David slightly pushed aside with his hand, touched the entrance to her ass.

Such words give goosebumps, but under the influence of absinthe I wish it. He gets up, takes three glasses of absinthe, comes up to us, pours a glass of absinthe into her mouth, kisses her lips. He throws my head back with his hand, holding my chin, pulls my lower lip, I open my mouth, he pours absinthe into me, kisses me.
He drinks himself.
