This is pretty good advice.

I came back to lasers a while back, after being away for many, many years, when I discovered how the economics of the hobby had transformed in the intervening years.

I've never really sweated much about my safe handling of lasers, because I have trophies and medals for semi-automatic pistol shooting (and no trophies or medals for my attempts semi-automatic rifle competition), and so I always instinctively treat my lasers EXACTLY as is they are firearms:
  • ALWAYS treat it as if it is loaded, even if you know otherwise (in the case of lasers, "loaded" means "batteries in").
  • ALWAYS have your protective gear on before picking up the device.
  • NEVER leave the device laying around unsupervised, out of your control.
  • ALWAYS store the device safely, out of the reach of anyone but yourself.
  • NEVER point it at something that you are not willing to destroy.
  • ALWAYS know what is down-range, and do not touch the device if there is someone down-range, or something down-range that you are not willing to destroy.
  • ALWAYS pay attention to what is behind and beyond your target.
  • Be aware of anything that could cause ricochets (or reflections in the case of lasers).

The similarity of hand-held lasers to hand-held firearms is really uncanny.

I know I only have a few posts but I have been browsing the site for a while learning what I can before deciding to make a purchase for a serious laser like this, I have other ones and while not as strong as this I am aware of the danger of it and that it should be treated more as a weapon than a toy.

That being said, I have been looking for glasses to order and seen many posts on the forums recommending the eagle ones posted in this thread, all the way to 100+ dollar glasses. Now, I know eyesight is priceless but are 100+ dollar glasses really necessary? I was looking at getting 405nm,450nm,473nm,532nm laser safety goggles [OLGLG532] - $19.99 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products until I saw the post about the other eagle ones in this thread. If I bought the O like ones, would they be safe enough to use with this laser or should i just suck it up and buy the eagle pair?

Those are not sufficient for a 1W+ laser. Even according to Susie from O-like. They are fine for lower powers, but at 1W+... no reason to gamble.

If you take a look, o-like actually sells better goggles: 405nm,445nm,808nm,1064nm safety goggles/200-450,800-2000nm [OLLS1064] - $45.99 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products

If you take an even closer look you will see those are actually also eagle pair

Get good goggles. They will be needed when burning things. Otherwise you cannot look at the spot.

Charge batteries. They do not come charged. After that, burn things that are not white. Chances are you grabbed a white piece of paper and a white tipped match and didn't focus the laser. Let me know how this goes. All lasers are tested for output before shipped with a fresh set of charged cells.

4.2V each cell. So 8.4V...Yes it's preferred. at 4.2V it is not very powerful

I loaded the batteries I received
Before that I tried with my batteries and is not burned
Now I put the batteries I received after I fried them
The laser did like Flash
Then he turns off
Now is not working for me and I do not know what to do
And I expected much more
