Continuing our series on things speakers MUST have with them in their “Pearl Harbor Kit.” <<The USA was caught unprepared for the Japanese Bombing on December 7, 1941.>> Similarly, I want to be prepared for any speaking contingencies). Today we now talk about your laser pointer. To the point, save your money and time with those wimpy RED lasers that most slide clickers come with. They just don’t put out enough light. Even free standing units pale in comparison to bright GREEN LASER ones. That’s all I use.
The green dot really draws the eye to what you are showing. Red lasers tend to get lost on color photograph slides; their power is just too low and the “dot” is tiny. Green lasers use 2 AAA batteries; keep some extra. The middle of the unit unscrews to load the batteries. You will get about four 60 minute talks out of them. Green lasers are pretty hard to find in electronic stores. If you do find them, you will be seeing prices above $25. Enter the internet. I have bought mine (I got a spare) from a reliable company on line…. the price? Under $10!!!
