There's a new Larry Light out.It has more lumens and a better switch too.The only thing I don't care for is an LED pointer on the end.I don't need to point to things very much. The price could have been cheaper without the pointer I'm sure.It is a bright light though!

Dude, My parts house was laying in wait for me again! So I had to get it, It is now my main go-to flashlight... really bright. The pointer is okay but I wished it had a different button and you didn't have to cycle through the pointer to get to the light.

I have the original Larry light and like it a lot.  

 

The v2 Larry design doesn't look as good to me.  A laser pointer? I think an integrated bottle opener would be more useful  :pint1:

but the brightness cannot be compared. Once you use the new version, the other one seems dim. 160 vs 60 lumens. I put up with the minor inconvenience for that difference.

I just wonder why they thought the pointer was necessary in the first place.I almost bought one anyway but I hate giving in so quickly. I am going to contact them and see what they were thinking.

they probably will tell you something like "our market test showed this that and the other." then they will say how they saved you money by not making a separate button for the laser. Typical corporate jibberish.

That's a good price... double clicking the switch has now become second nature but I still press the top of the light as if the switch is located there like the original model.

Well, I gave in.I did email them and they said they put the laser in it because a lot of customers asked for it. I found them on fleabay for $13.99/free shipping.Got it today and although I cant see using the laser, it is a bright light!.They did say that they may come out with a new design that has a seperate switch for the laser.

Well they listened and they have redesigned the model so now there a separate switch for the laser. Picked one up a couple of days ago. I don't see it on their site (nebotools. com) so I think they are quietly producing the new design thus avoiding admitting the stupidity of the previous design

They have them at my local lumber yard for $9.99 without a laser.  Who has closed a unit up with larry inside beside me?

Yeah the Larry is much cheaper than the Larry2 but the Larry2 is much much brighter.

A Phone? I aint sticking my expensive cell phone in a freezer, near a compressor or inside an oven even though I have it in an extreme protective case. Plus a cell phone is much larger and heavier than a Larry or most lights I carry. Your toolbag is so full that you couldn't add something the size and weight of a marking pen?

I use my cell phone for downloading and reading schematics. At times I use the flashlight app when at home or in a pinch. While actually working?. No, I couldn't begin to imagine reading a mainboard schematic on my phone then switching to the flashlight app to look at the board then back to the schematic and back to the light... too cumbersome, too important and too expensive to use as a work light. But more power to you if it works for you.

I use my phone light all the time. It was actually my only source of light until last week when I added a flashlight.

My rugged Iphone gets the job done well. Ha

ruggedized or not, as a matter of fact, the new samsungs are actually water proof but it is still cumbersome compared to a smaller brighter light that has a magnet. I've used it in a pinch but definitely not as a main work light. and I certainly aint gonna hold my light up to my face after sticking it in some of those nasty machine compartments or letting it rest in some discusting fridge gookus. Yuck! lol... I'm messin' with you, of course ... but remind me not to borrow your phone at next year's ASTI.

Finally have to give in a find a good light. Was thinking of getting this guy. Can magnetize it to keep my hands free and work in those dark laundry rooms. Also folds up and can be used handheld. Even bright than the larry2.

 

Watcha y'all Tink?

You guys are using this as your primary work light? Pocket sized and only 8 LED's? Plenty of light for you ?
