Back-to-school season is a chance to rethink the little things inside a classroom. Small changes, like upgrading a laser pointer to Alpec’s 4000 Spectra Red Pointer or 4001 Spectra Red Pointer, can make a difference in a teacher’s day-to-day enjoyment at work. Though lots of laser pointers claim to be one of the best laser pointers of 2023, we’d like to fine-tune your thinking about what you use a laser pointer for. 

Choosing the Right Classroom Laser Pointer

We are not above humble bragging and, while we won’t flat-out say that our 4000 and 4801 are the best laser pointers for teachers, we will tell you that we have a 100% positive feedback rating of both Spectra pointers and all of our laser pointers. Why? Our products are highly rated because of their long-term durability and reliability, our care for what we do and our commitment to selling only high quality laser pointers. As you can see, our customers are delighted with our products and our customer service.

Choosing a laser pointer doesn’t have to be hard. Educators and trainers typically prefer wireless models well-suited to indoors, such as the 4000 and 4801. In classroom settings, red, like our 4000 and 4801 models, are popular. Set at 650 nm, they are comfortably bright – but not too bright – pinpoint accurate and easy to see, whether the classroom lights are on or off.  The main difference between the two is the housing – the 4000 is a silver pen and the 4001 is a black pen.

The Spectra Laser Pointer makes a great, entry-level cost laser ($27.99) to teach about light, lasers, STEM or anything else. Please contact us at for special pricing for educators interested in quantities of 5 or more.

Are Laser Pointers Safe in the Classroom?

Educators already know that lasers are not toys and should be used only for their intended purpose. We feel the same way. All of Alpec’s lasers are premium laser pointers, built with 100% IR filtration.  IR filtration along with sealed, tamper-proof laser housing ensure a safe laser experience.
