Exclamation Reliable places to purchase a laser in the UK

I am looking to purchase a high power laser while in the UK. I understand there is some restrictions on having a laser >1mW, but I can see some places that still offer the higher power variants. Can anyone recommend any sites where a UK person can purchase a high power laser? Any recommendations for non-UK sites are also welcome as I would guess ultimately they would have to be imported in if the UK has none.

These are the typical specs i'm looking for:

Colour: Green
Power: > 50mW
Wavelength: 532nm
Batteries - 18650 or AAA
Focusable beam

Sanwu offers a deliverly guarantee, if it gets stopped for whatever reason they will re-ship another at no cost to the customer. I believe Jetlaser offer the same guarantee. Both are excellent builds.

JETLASERS.ORG, find a selection of high power handheld lasers, dpss lasers, diode lasers and laser dazzlers - JETLASERS.ORG

https://www.sanwulasers.org/

Ps. Welcome to the forum, you might want to make a post in the welcome section and introduce yourself? Just a thought.

If the former one happens, we will do a reship of your laser undoubtedly but if the latter one happens, we will offer these two options: 50% refund the cost of the laser or you pay extra 50% the cost of the laser and we will do a reship.

We do our best to avoid customs, especially to country like australia. There are methods to lower the risk of being caught by customs but it's hard to guarantee a 100% delivery rate.
Not sure about Jetlasers policy

All good Bob. I remembered that post and spent like 10 minutes trying to find it. The power of autism flowed through me.

Unless the laws have changed there's no restriction on owning a >1mW laser in the UK. The restrictions only apply to businesses selling to consumers.

Odicforce is located in the UK if you want to buy domestic. They don't sell complete handheld lasers anymore, but you could for example buy these two parts and put them together:

That's was a great post to have remembered. I was under the impression that Sanwu would reship if it didn't get through for whatever reason. Think I even told another member that. Being a Sanwu fan it's something I need to get correct. Still pretty good from guarantee from Sanwu through. Need to find out for sure if Jetlaser has a delivery guarantee of some type. Think I read it someone that Jetlaser has a one also, but need to confirm this. But thanks for the update, it was needed.
