Add the ones you want to the bottom:

<ul class="cbp-vimenu">
    <li><a href="#" class="icon-logo">Logo</a></li>
    <li><a href="#" class="icon-archive">Archive</a></li>
    <li><a href="#" class="icon-search">Search</a></li>
    <li class="cbp-vicurrent"><a href="#" class="icon-pencil">Pencil</a></li>
    <li><a href="#" class="icon-location">Location</a></li>
    <li><a href="#" class="icon-images">Images</a></li>
    <li><a href="#" class="icon-download">Download</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" class="icon-mobile">Download</a></li>
    <li><a href="#" class="icon-globe">Download</a></li>
</ul>

In the CSS, add the class after the others:

...
.icon-pencil:before {
    content: "\e008";
}
.icon-mobile:before {
    content: "\e00x";
}
.icon-globe:before {
    content: "\e00x";
}

WHERE x IS THE INDEX IN THE FONT.  Are you sure these icons are present in the font?  They need to be to have this work.

Please post the font ecoico with all the different versions eg eot, ttf, woff, svg and I can update this example for you here:  http://jsbin.com/iPuJEQUR/1/edit
