Default Re: Has anyone tried importing lasers into Australia?

Hi guys,
I bought a 150mW flash-light style green laser.

UltraFire WF-501B 150mW 532nm Flashlight Style Green Laser Pointer, Britain - DinoDirect.com

Do you think it will get through customs? And what happens if they pick it up?
Yes, the link says 200mW. But they screwed it up..

Thanks,
Apptrack

G'day and welcome to the forum

Regarding your question...

If the laser does get picked up by customs they'll use an LPM (Laser power meter)
to get a output reading, if it's >1mW in a hand-held device it will be seized
and you will receive a letter saying so and what action they have taken against you.
First time round you'll most likely get a warning but they do have the right
to take further action.

If it does get through customs which I can't say it will or wont, you should
look into getting some laser safety glasses to suit.

Sweet thanks. Do you think it looks like a laser to customs point of view?

Since it's a flashlight style and not a pen you may have more luck but I can't say for sure.
