WL E3 <100mW 405 I ordered a 200mW Lunar S1...WL sends me this 100mW E3. Upgrade my ass! THX Steve! And where is my $10 refund?!
WL S3 Arctics G1 & G2 >740mW 445 SOLD THEM OFF...junk! I DO NOT RECOMMEND...you can get much better quality 445's for less money right here on LPF. And not have to wait 4 months or risk losing it in customs.

Default Re: A lot of things can be said of the Arctic...

I have yet to come across any threads talking about the modification abilities of these lasers. It would be stupid easy for them to run at 2W heat sinking wise if they are built with decent diodes. That would make them much more attractive given their size inconvenience.

It's not the size of the ship, it's the motion of the ocean. Which in laser talk translates to


It's not the size of the host, it's the heatsinking and the driver current.

No one talks about modifying them because if they have the know how to modify one they wouldnt bother buying one. Why spend $300 on a laser and then modify it to 2W when you could just build a better laser at 2W for under $200?

Yeah, I like my Arctic a lot and would buy another, but I've also thought it would be reeaallll coooolll to have one just a bit smaller.

May have to ask Pontiac if he could CNC the Arctic in the size of the Aurora 18650.

Buy the way I removed the warning label from mines I didn't like it screwing up the aesthetics of my Arctic Beast! But I would still like to see this in a smaller version with just as much power!
