Default Wicked lasers spyder III pro 5mw (532nm)


Came in a nice box, and also included lasershades

Very large, heavy and solid feeling laser.

AR coated front window.

Disassembled, has a safety pin.

Size comparison. Uses a 18650 battery.

Very tight divergence.


It also came with a power graph, it does 9mw. Even though it is very nice, I cant really see why someone would buy such a low powered expensive laser. The host is really cool though, so this would be a good candidate to swap out for a higher powered module.

Default Re: Wicked lasers spyder III pro 5mw (532nm)

You are kidding me, such a mighty host ... for THIS?!

When I read 5 mW, I though 473nm or something.

But 5 mW of green in Spyder III?

This is madness...

I'd call this an empty host, at best. If it wasn't so expensive. What did it cost, again?

It's an ourage to put a 5mW in such a cool looking host and we are going to take care of that !

I don't even think the host looks that good, I wouldn't know which way to point the damn thing.

That laser = fail. I'm glad you didn't buy it, that would have made things a lot worse! What was the asking price for that?

5mW in that beast of a host. I'll bet the 3 LED's for the battery indicator use more juice then the laser. Plus the fact that it runs on a 18650 cell
Looks like their charging $197 for it

If their letting you keep it your going to have to turn that sucker in to a 150mW+.

I think they were asking around $100usd for the 5mW Spyder III before they stopped selling them. The $197 model is 50mW's, still pricey for 50mW.
