    Self defense

    People always say you can't aim a laser effectively when in a panic situation..Well, the way I look at it that's what you're doing with a gun also. Except the laser stays on and you can see exactly where it's going in order to correct your aim. With a gun you have only so many shots to get it...

    Klipsch or Polk Audio

    I have a pair of Polk RT55i's that I have hooked up to my Aragon 8008. They actually sound really nice for what they are. They definitely punch above their class.. Sound staging is really decent,... etc. But I've never listened to anything from Klipsch

    Self defense

    I've always wondered about this too. I have a laser dazzler that also has a stun gun function. I do sometimes go up into where bears live at a cabin that's up in the mountains. The dazzler is a 520nm green laser at 1 watt that diffuses out. But it gets tighter the closer in it is. I would find...

    Ok, I was playing around with my Laser Ranger today.. I was wrong, it only has the one ring. I got it mixed up with my Striker Saber that had the two power rings. So with the half clicks on the button, it just cycles through the three modes: constant, strobe, and s.o.s.. What do you mean by "the...

    I'll have to dust off my 488nm Ranger and take a look at it.. I could have sworn it had two rings that did stuff

    Have you turned the other ring? There are two rings. One is the power ring and the other is the mode ring.

    Looks like you may have gotten one with the safety lock out feature on it and it's in lock out mode....? You said you wanted that feature and Podo said he could do it. My Sanwus with lock out do that dot and blinky(I think when you button around with it in lock out mode).. Try to do the 5 half...

    jetlasers.org down

    I wouldn't worry so much about it just yet. Did you use the $38 DHL/Fedex shipping? .. On the other hand, I have ordered many things from them but have never had a false cancel. I have cancelled orders though. In my experience, their website is only loosely tied to reality in that you could...

    I read that taking Ibuprofen, in the case of the Coronavirus, actually makes the illness worse somehow. More inflamation

    Sanwu Lasers- Do they come with a battery or not?

    They don't come with batteries. You have to order them on the drop down menu. It's better to order them separately though since adding batteries to the shipment of laser just adds that much more that can go wrong in transit to you

    Is Sanwulasers a scam?

    I've ordered 6 lasers from Sanwu over the years. All arrived within a reasonable amount of time and they still work just fine. The only order that that's a little iffy is the 7.5watt Striker that I ordered on Jan 17 that I'm still waiting on.. but that's due to the terrible situation over there...

    Sanwu Challenger II 488nm beam shots 150mw

    Yeah, the heat would explain that.. On my other one at 492, if I run it long enough it actually looks more green than blue.

    Sanwu Challenger II 488nm beam shots 150mw

    So I just bought an actual 488nm Sanwu.. The one in the previous pics was really a 492nm. They both have the same diode (S308B292) but are operating at different currents. This is a Laser Ranger 488nm . I have a rudimentary spectrometer that shows it at 486nm. On high setting, it does have a...

    NEW Sharp diode-500-700mw

    In the bottom picture, what is the one on the right? That looks exactly like my "488"nm 150mw... which I think is actually more like 490

    Sanwu Lasers - Offical thread

    I know it's indicated as 445nm, but do the new 7.5 watt diodes sometimes get up to 450-455nm in wavelength?

    UFO/ UAP Research and Laser Pointers Thread

    Yeah, if you think about all the secret "classified" operations going on with the US government, in particular the military industrial complex since the late 1940s, it's just common sense that they have the ability to do pretty much whatever the heck they want for many decades, and get away with...

    Diode Damage from burned glass? PLE 3.5

    I have that same laser. That lens on yours doesn't look quite right to me. It looks kind of rough. Maybe that's from the cleaning ..? But the outer lens on mine has a smoother, thinner shape. And the glue work around the edges in those pics doesn't look like typical Jet Lasers build standards...

    Is best laser pointers.com a scam? [Not completely|As of 09/04/2019 they still ship lasers]

    You won't have a very visible beam at night.. Even if it is way over-spec and pushing 400mw, you still won't really see much of a 405nm beam unless you have some fog or smoke in the air. A 445nm blue one at 200mw on the other hand would be visble at night If it's any consolation... eh.. it's...

    Sanwu 7w 445 single mode and multi mode comparison tests?

    If you all read through the OP's situation, you'll see that he/she is referring to the multi power modes of the lasers and not the type of diode .. Be careful though ordering those high powered ones from Sanwu. They sell two distinctive lasers at that wavelength. A 5watt one and the 7+ watt...

    Sanwu review, 7 watt Spiker, Tri-beam Guardian, 150mw 520nm Pocket

    Those 635nm 1watters are definitely multi mode
