Default Assassin Lasers

I ordered their Arctic Blue laser just to goof around with. It showed up yesterday and after charging the battery for 6 or so hours, I put it in the laser and nothing happened. Contacted them on facebook and got a fairly quick response....I was impressed. Anyway, on their guidance I let the battery charge for a full 10 hours and put it back in and nothing. Let them know and they suggested that "some customers have discovered that the polarity is reversed on their lasers, so try flipping the battery". I did that and it worked. Great!

So I played with it a bit...reasonably bright, beam was visible in the basement with the lights off, and if you set the focus ring JUUUUUUST right it would actually burn paper. Kinda cool.

After about 10 minutes of total run time, the button started to stick and after a few minutes it failed to return to the off position at all. At the same time, the laser went out and now the unit is totally dead. Great.

I contacted customer service via email and asked for a refund. Burn me once, shame on you...I prefer not to give a second chance. Again, they got back to me fairly quickly and stated that they were going to ship a replacement unit and asked me to return the defective one but to keep the battery and charger. Ok, fair enough, but apparently I get to foot the bill for shipping of the bad unit back. Not thrilled about that.

So what I'm getting from all this as I wade into the hobby laser enthusiast pool is that, like all things, with lasers you get what you pay for. I'm hoping my $300 JetLasers unit is more reliable.

Assasin Lasers--Arctic Blue--they are morons that don't even know what they are talking about and sell $8 lasers for $99.99--you've been punked by idiots selling crap lasers at extremely high prices--you should have check LPF first for who is and is not a good/reliable/honest seller

It figures. Unfortunately, I found LPF after I ordered. It is what it is...ya live and learn. Fortunately I only paid $50 for this thing and hopefully the replacement will last a bit longer than the 10 minutes I got out of the first one. LOL

Not that this man has anything to do with it, but lately we've had a troll, well..... a lot more than just lately, due to him any new member is suspect for coming here to rattle cages. Doesn't mean most are that guy, but I'd bet one of the new guys every week or two is him and he's just filling his belly here, I've fed him myself

One of his first acts is to double post, acting like he doesn't know not to do that, a newbie! Then suckers us in with lots of questions about lasers, problems with the device or seller... or is a help me troll, likes to get us jumping for him with answers to help a new guy out. What does this do to the forum? Nothing, we will help them anyway and add to the knowledge base, so keep em coming!

Sincerely investigate any of these three short quotes as new concepts and you've taken your first step into a larger world:

"What we call physical things and events do not exist independently of subjective experience..." - Deepak Chopra.

Each of these three rabbit holes go deep, ending up in the same place.

Y'all are a trip. Holy hell.

FWIW, Assassin Lasers did replace the defective laser and I did return it to them. The new one works fine and I guess is fine for a $50 unit. They followed up via email to make sure that I had received the new one and that it was working ok, so I can give their customer service a thumbs up.

Still pales in comparison to my JL PLE pro though, which still amazes me every time I pick it up and turn it on.

I think the whole point here is that Assassin lasers are a ripoff. From the looks of it, these are the same lasers that you can buy off ebay for 5-10 bucks.
They are originally called "303" lasers I think, but they just put "Assassin" on the side instead.

Here, these are the exact same ones on ebay:
