Review - Nebo Pocket Work Light - The Larry

A great and inexpensive little light that I recently came across has a very unique name. It's called The Larry and it's made by NEBO Tools.

This simple light consists of a strip of 8 LEDs and a single-mode push button switch. The Larry outputs a respectable 60 lumens in a nice, wide beam, great for up-close lighting. The light uses 3 AAA batteries, is 6.3" long and 0.63". It is very similar in form factor to a pen.

Apart from being very functional,
The Larry also comes in 4 attractive colors.
This light was designed for the worker in mind. It was designed to be very functional in lighting up a small work area, especially those hard to reach areas. In my opinion, this flashlight excels at this task and let me explain why.

Part of having a functional worklight is having a reasonably bright (but not too bright) flashlight in a small (but not too small) form factor. The other part of a functional worklight is the problem of mounting your light for hands free operation. One option is to have a headlamp. However, this isn't always the best option.

The Larry conquers this problem in a very unique way. The Larry has a clip on the back with a swivel. This clip allows you to clip the light onto a shirt pocket or other thin surface and also swivel the light to direct it towards your work area. If that wasn't useful enough, the clip is also magnetic, allowing you to stick it to any ferrous surface.

The usefulness of The Larry is limited to one's imagination. If you've got a job that often requires lighting up a work area, such as an electrician, mechanic, computer technician, etc. then I would highly recommend checking out The Larry by NEBO Tools. It's an inexpensive but very functional lighting solution and may be just what you hvae been looking for.

Do any of you have any experience with The Larry? If so, let us know in the comments below.
