The Tek Light is an end-game tool in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is part of the Tek Tier item set.

The Tekgram is unlocked by defeating both bosses in the Ragnarok Boss Fight or Dinopithecus King on Gamma or higher difficulty.


The Tek Light functions as an advanced source of light and can attach to any surface (including walls and ceilings). It can be powered by connecting it to a  Tek Generator or by placing  Element Shards in its inventory. Also it can be powered by a  Electrical Outlet with energy running from power at  Electrical Generator.


  • Unlike most tek structures, the decay time is only about 8 days.
