Default Are these 460nm laser pens real ?

This uk website is supposedly selling 460nm laser pens, does anyone know if they are really 460nm ?, he is selling them in 1mW, 5mW, 20mW and 50mW.

I have purchased laser pens from that website in the past and i have had no problems, but 460nm laser pens sound too good to be true.

Here is the link to the supposed 460nm laser pens, it looks like they are pre-order only for now.

They're probably single mode 450nm's, possibly even binned. I havent heard of a pointer style laser with a key... (check the 50mW pen)

I have never heard of a 460nm diode.

Itīs a host Skylaser and Dinodirect/Laserman use(d). They have a key interlock as Jake already pointed out and are quite good hosts!

Iīm quite sure that these pens arenīt 460nm laser (never heard of them eigther and do my wavelength research homework daily).

You should drop the seller a message asking which diodes is working in these lasers.



Btw, why do you the same thread twice?
This website is selling 460nm laser pens, are they really 460nm ?

Default Re: Are these 460nm laser pens real ?

Hi Guys,

I have been a long time fan of this site and have built a few lasers based on the info and recommendations from the members here. I have always been interested in the blue pointers, and importation of anything above 1mW is illegal in my country, so when I heard about a 1mW 460 nm blue pointer, I was very interested. I found the information on the 'laserto' website, but I thought it may be a scam due to the suspicion from posts that I found on this forum. Further searching found a similar looking unit being sold by 'http://www.megagreen.co.uk/' and its bluesky marketing affiliates. I contacted the company and was told that I could get a 1mW unit with a verification certificate of the power output. I ordered the unit, although I was a little nervous as I had never heard of a 460 nm diode. I received the laser today and i am happy to say that it works. The warning near the aperture states a wavelength of 405 -473 nm. When I saw this I was pissed as I thought they had just sent me a 405 nm unit, but after putting the batteries in, it was a definite blue colour. I compared it to a 405 nm unit I had constructed and it is definitely a lot bluer. I couldn't say what the actual wavelength is but it looks similar to my 445 nm pointers i constructed but much less bright. Whether it is a binned 450 or an actual 460 I wouldn't have a clue. Maybe the 460 nm is a marketing ploy. Either way I am happy as I now have a low power blue pointer. Of course I would love a low power 473 nm pointer but I haven't seen any that i could legally import. Anyway I hope this helps. I would be interested if anybody did in fact know what diodes are in these units.
Regards,
