Yeah it uses 18650 types but there were two cr123a type batteries at the box but i didnt use them i used my 18650 battery.I suspect that at customs they used those two batteries to run the laser and damaged it.Goddamn customs.I still wonder that where those batteries came from.

Patience.
Yes she answer now.Btw whats the problem with that 808 LED'd?

Chances are, the laser was shipped with those batteries.
Customs doesn't have time to play with these things and if they ever open a package, you'll know it, it will be taped back up with US customs packaging tape that says on the tape that the package was opened and inspected.
Were the cr123a cells of chinese origin (ie. chinese writing on label)?
The fact that cr123 cells were in it, speaks volumes about how much these drop shipping places know about the products they resell.
If the cr123 cells are USA type like energizer/duracell and english writing, it's possible that this laser was sent sold to someone in the USA previously and it was returned for some problem with the buyer forgetting to remove the wrong batteries he put in it and it was then resold without even retesting; I've heard some pretty strange horror stories about some of these cheap reseller / drop shipping places.

Hi Alpertuner,
Then it was not a returned item as it was customized to your needs.
Are you in the USA?
If so, then it would have had customs tape all over it had they opened it for inspection.
If it arrived in an open state, it could be that it wasn't taped/sealed very well and by the time you got it, it looked to have been opened. Often when packages are not well taped/ sealed and start coming open, the post office will tape it back shut to keep the contents from falling out, in fact my mother-in-law just sent me a birthday gift a few days ago and it looked like it had been ripped open and taped back up, I'm sure this is what happened to my gift.

Default Re: New Rayfoss 350mw laser dimmed after minutes

It would fry the driver and possibly the diode as well. One 18650 is around 3.6v to 4.20v, and the same for CR123's using two would double the voltage, frying the driver...

You may have put too much power (more than 4.2V) into the driver, and killed the 808nm (pump) diode.

No Im not that noob to do it
I knew that its working with 18650 type batteries i did a lot of research before i buy.
I just wonder if the guys at customs did it.
Because when i received the laser it didnt work at first.

Strange if the guys at customs did use those batteries for a short time would it be broken because It didnt work at first but after few minutes I tried again and it worked and everything was fine

Hmm I think they tried to run it for a short time and damage the laser but if they would do that I wouldnt run the laser?
