It will always be there - on your key ring, or attached to a bag or item of clothing, for you to use at a moments notice. Never be without a pen again! it comes complete with a TOTAL of 4 refills, all included in the price, and should you ever use all of these up, it will accept a bic type refill, simply cut to length. This really is an absolutely essential personal accessory, and also makes a great gift. Why would anyone ever be without one patent pending.

I like keeping a small pen in my pocket for moments such as when I'm at the ATM and realize I don't have anything to fill out the deposit slip with. I've used the Inka pen and PicoPen and found both to be very capable. However the Inka is slightly large for my keychain, and the PicoPen, while small enough, is a little uncomfortable to use because it is so small. The Telepen hits a nice sweet spot. It is actually the shortest of the 3 pens, although it has a larger diameter than the PicoPen. But once you extend it, it is just long enough for me to hold semi-comfortably. Because of the smaller-than-average diameter, it's not as comfortable as holding a regular size pen, but it is good enough to use for short periods of time.

One feature that is a plus and a minus is the cap. The pen snaps very securely into the cap so there is very little danger of it accidentally falling out. However it usually requires two hands and a very firm pull to remove the pen from the cap. I prefer the one-handed easy opening of the PicoPen.

The build quality seems ok. I have been EDCing it in my pocket for a couple months and it has held up fine so far. So it appears to be solid enough to withstand normal wear and tear even though it doesn't feel quite as well-built as the other pens.

It comes with 3 refills, but each refill contains less than 1" worth of ink so it doesn't hold much ink. But you can refill it easily since it uses the same diameter refill as some other pens such as the BAZIC Silver Mini 4-Color Pen with Cushion Grip 4 Per Pack,Red/Green/Blue/Black, although you have to cut down the length to fit in the Telepen.

The pen arrived as described. It even came with several extra pen refills. The pen wrote well and felt good in my hand.

My only problem with this pen is I dont feel it is secure enough. The pen is held in the keyring holder by friction. I hooked it to my messenger bag when I received it and I promptly lost it within 3 days. It must have caught on something and pulled out of the holder. I really wish it had some sort of screw on mechanism rather than a friction holder.

I think if you put this on your keyring and had it in your pocket or purse it would work well. Just use caution if you plan on attaching it to a purse, backpack, etc.

Well, I got three of these today (one for me, two for gifts). I opened one of them, found that (like a previous reviewer) it would not fully extend. So, I opened the other two to check them before I gave them as gifts: both extended just fine.

However, one of them would not write at all. I decided to use one of the provided refills to get that one working--it is impossible to get the original refill out of the pen! The tip comes off in your hand, but the plastic ink tube is firmly jammed inside.

One of them seems to work fine (so far) and the refill is easily removed. I gotta wonder how long it will last....

So, based on my experience, you'll have a 33% chance of getting a good product.

It's too bad, really, as these would not only be nice to have (if they worked), but I had noticed several other items here by True Utility that seemed cool. Now I don't trust them at all.

I purchased this because it always seems like I can't find a pen when I need one.

Positives:
The pen works and writes well. I had a concern the pen would come out of the cap too easily and get lost, but after using for a little while that doesn't seem likely; it takes a lot of force to pull the pen out of the cap, which should keep it from falling out. Another good point is the low cost of this compared to other options.

Drawbacks:
The telescoping mechanism works, but in retrospect it would be better to just have a shorter more sturdy one-piece design. The telescoping part had about as much play/wobble and similar build quality to a radio antenna. If you are looking for a higher quality (and admittedly higher price) option, check out the PicoPen TEC - PicoPen, Stainless Steel Pen w/Keychain Lanyard.

On balance, the low cost of this pen outweighs the drawbacks, and it certainly works well and while a design with less wobble would be nice, I'd be likley to buy again if this one wears out.

Nice pen but it pulls the catch off the ring on the first try. A touch of superglue seems to be holding but it's just stupid design by a company whose other stuff is excellent.

The problem is that there is a brief pull needed to extend the pen when you remove it from the small piece that attaches to the ring. The force of the pull needed to get the pen out exceeds the ability of the stupid brass shivs and the whole damn thing comes off. Since there is never a reason that you would want the piece on the ring to come apart, why not just weld the thing on? (or whatever).

It just makes a cool-looking and rather useful device a useless, guaranteed-to-be-lost waste of money.

Now, I'm trying Superglue and it's holding (today). But Superglue has never worked before and I shouldn't have to fix the product after the first time I use it.

Does look good, though.
