Hey guys,

I’m new to the forum and I hope someone can help me about safety. Couldn’t find the answer searching the forum...

My spiker series 520nm 1W from Sanwu laser is on the way and I have an important question about the lightsaber attachment.

Can I see with my naked eyes (without safety goggles) the attachment at medium 600mw and high power 1W without causing eye injury?

Ask Sanwu.

Use laser safety glasses/goggles. To say otherwise is irresponsible advice.
Powerful lasers as children's pretend world play toys is potentially dangerous, generally.
Using lasers glasses/goggles is standard safety practice when using lasers regardless of use/purpose.

Huge good point as you always do:)
Why would anyone need more than 50mw "still over powered I know" to have in a lightsaber rod? Making a custom true to the original Star Wars prop host with a 1W or 7W without the plastic rod is different and more of a collection piece for experienced builders.
It know it wouldn't be feasable for Sanwu but I would like to see the rod attachment only fit lower power models.
Hostile A,,, putting on a light stick kinda defeats the purpose of the 1W and if swinging it around I would think there's a chance of the rod cracking and instantly exposing someone to a direct hit:undecided:
Green even at lower powers is still bright.

This does sound like an incredibly bad idea. I don't know why Sanwu sells these for such powerful lasers. Well, actually I do. Money. I can't imagine putting a plastic lightsaber attachment on a 7+ watt blue laser. That is just nuts. A 1+ watt 520nm laser is overkill too with one of these.
