Default PRICE DROP!!! FS: 1.3W DTR build 18650 445nm

PRICE DROP!!!: NOW ONLY $210.

Get it before it is taken


Originally built by DTR.

Comes in a Cree R3 18650 SS host

These are pictures that DTR sent me when I bought the laser.
I can put some of my own up upon request.

I ship from Canada, so if you are in another country let me know if there is anything I need to do get it into your country.

Pictures:






This is a 1.3 Watt 445nm blue laser pointer built by the famous DTR of laserpointerforums. This thing can pop balloons quick times, can light paper on fire too. It can even engrave wood, as I have done (I can send you a picture on request) features a copper heats ink, copper module, and even comes with an ez-focus adapter.

If you point it up into the sky at night (ABSOLUTELY NEVER IF A PLANE IS IN THE NEAR VICINITY OF YOU, THIS CAN CAUSE SEVERE DAMAGE TO AIRCRAFT PILOTS) it seems ad it goes forever, it is a really sweet effect.

I will include 1 pair of safety glasses (I recommend you buy your own as mine aren't the best) for free with your purchase.

The first 2 pictures are of the laser, and the third, of it's laserpowermeter test (results, 1314mW max)

It takes and comes with 1 18650 battery. *Extras are $10 each. *I have a semi working charger, only one of the ports work, so I can sell that for $5

Good luck buying

WARNING
This is not a toy, it is VERY dangerous and should only be handled with absolute care. *If you would not handle it with care please do not make an offer.

You can text me at 6476992832

DTR might appreciate you redacting his cell phone number from that quote.

How much?

And you might want to get rid of the phone number in your quote, for DTR's sake.

EDIT: rhd beat me to it.

Then you may want to take the "quote" tags out so that it's clear that the write-up is your own.

You may also want to take your phone number out.

And you may also want to indicate that you're in Canada, so that potential buyers know where the item is currently located.
