Have they ever thought that, maybe people are shipping fragile ceramics? or fragile glass? Putting a fragile sticker should mean "when you take it out of the truck, can you please not toss it across the yard?"

If they get insulted by that, then maybe they should have made something of their lives other than an almost minimum wage grunt job?

A bit off topic, but ups drivers actually make decent money. Far from minimum wage.

ah.. nice place- home of Tunedcavity- holder of a few world record lasers (power/handhelds)

that is smart and what i would do shipping across any borders- but I use DHL exoress

who can blame you??

just how do they NOT get into trouble when damage claims add up?
surely they keep record of this- duh!


If they get insulted by that, then maybe they should have made something of their lives other than an almost minimum wage grunt job?
true- it was only a guess on my part- why is something i doubt they can even answer-but they (UPS)do pay well-

I would have requested pictures of the box. I think UPS also has some sort of insurance included. That may have been voided once the lasers were opened up though.

My step father is a truck driver for UPS. He's been there like 38 years now and makes over 6 figures.

I do know he had to deliver packages for 5 years accident free to become a truck driver and had an accident on his 4th year, resetting the clock.

I'm not sure what they pay the delivery guys, but the truck drivers get paid well.

Got to love unions.

This sounds like a description of a C mount diode to me.

As for the shipping:

I work at ups, and yes they suck. As for them putting a note if it was opened; nope. Everyday I see boxes ripped up, sometimes nothing is done. Usually some tape is thrown on it and it's sent on its way. I have seen boxes opened just to see what's in them, taped up and sent along. Ups doesn't care, as long as it doesn't cost them too much money.

I never use ups unless it's the only option. Then again, even shipping something through usps can wind up in ups's system. Ups and usps have a contract that has a large chunk of usps mail moved through ups's system.

Its a C mount IR PUMP-
1st one I ever saw -surprized me-

check out the laser inside a red $3 pointer.
they look even less 'laser diode-like' than C- mounts-

Well, how can we open a complaint when it's technically illegal to ship lasers into the US? If I open a claim what would I say?

Man, I just googled this, and those are some weird lookin' components! no wonder that thing would look like it's just a heatsink.

I guess it makes sense, since that is probably just a tuned heat producing device (at the correct IR frequency). Is that assumption correct?

" a tuned heat producing device" ?? Yeah, in the same sense that your car is a tuned heat producing device.

A C mount laser diode produces laser light and as a by product of the process, heat.

You can see many different examples of C mount laser diodes here: https://www.google.com/search?q=c+mo...0CDIQsAQ&dpr=1

C-mount and many other types plus a explaination can be seen here: http://www.torreyhillstech.com/Docum...hite_paper.pdf
