I suppose it would be best to remove the batteries from powerful lasers whenever you carry them around and not using them. That way, if they fall out of your pocket or something, someone can't just pick it up, look down the barrel and press the button.

If you laser is powered by lithium ion cells (18650s or something) its not very likely some random person would have a suitable battery at hand to give it a go either.

One problem is that people are more stupid that you would think. Many people will power on a flashlight pointing it straight at their face to see if it works. This wasn't really that dangerous until the multiwatt led flashlights came a long, but with a laser its certainly a very bad idea.

I doubt warning stickers will deter many people either... everything comes them, up to the point stating a butchers knive is sharp and should not be used to clip your toenails.
One of my favorite quotes: Imagine how dumb the average person is. Now realize that half of them are dumber then that.

He has other styles to choose from, as well as providing full custom design services.

Those are good stickers for those who know what the #'s mean, but
for the average person on the street, perhaps something like :

'THIS LASER WILL BLIND YOU, DO NOT USE WITHOUT PROPER GOGGLES'

Or something of that nature. At least there would be an immediate
respect where they may then google what 1500mW actually means...

Maybe we should just go with "Explosive Devise, will blow your hands off, drop in the nearest trash can and RUN!" instead?

Now I just try to be a whole lot more careful, and have dedicated pocket for lasers.

Default Re: Anyone Lose a Laser And Feels Bad For The Person Who Finds It?

I'd be inclined to put radioactive warning labels on them. Somehow its a very wellknown symbol, and scares many people more than anything else. 'Made in Fukushima' may also help

Downside of radioactive labels is that they will also send firefighters and possibly medical staff running off, in case you leave it in your car and get into an accident or something, that would be bad.

Fukushima isn't famous enough. You're better off with "Made in Chernobyl" though personally I would go with "Made on the Scenic shores of Lake Karachay"

I think the effect of chernobyl vs fukushima depends on age mostly. People over about 30 will know chernobyl for the distaster it is, but people under 20 or so will probably believe fukushima is the worst nuclear disaster in history by now.

Perhaps its not the way to go though... something like 'looking into this hole when pressing the on button is guaranteed to blind you' might be effective too. At least more so then 'class 4 laser, avoid driect exposer'

All those warning label ideas really got me laughing hard.
I needed that.
Sad that a lot of people would disregard the warning and learn the hard way!

Idk, I think chernobyl is still the most famous nuclear disaster across the board.

Where fukushima is concerned, I think the earthquake, and trunami news really overshadowed it.

Now as far as warning stickers.... maybe we should just put "Rectal Examination Light" on them

Well technically a laser emits electromagnetic radiation, so putting a radioactive label wouldn't be completely lying...

Speaking of the devil, I just lost a 2.2w 445nm laser I suspect it was stolen but I do feel bad for them, because I am not missing any safety glasses.
