Hi,
Just wanted to post a few pics of this quality component build by you know who.:eek:(n)
The parts were tested the diode is led and the driver is well you can see for yourself a mess.
The wire is of ordinary plastic casing , 12mm module

OMG!! Thanks Lifetime.
This nice host never even had a chance:rolleyes:
To think Eitan is still enjoying life to the fullest with no what so ever remorse or guilt. Wait till he meets his maker:D

Wan't to add that the extreme that this weasel wen't through to find the cheapest possible way to find trash and build these had to be harder than actually for one example, ordering just even the some ok wire to use. Even his junk draw had to have better wire.
I'm in on a fund me donation for someone to get a ticket to Isreal and show up at his door if you get my point;) I would go if I had the time...

Damn, a blind squirrel could do a better job than that; the poor thing didn't stand a chance; I'm suprised that it ever worked!
Tha sad part is that most of his customers probably never opened up their builds to see the aborted mess inside. :eek:

PS -Thanks for sharing; we can all feel better about our laser building skills after seeing this!

I don't pretend at all to be great at soldering, or electronics for that matter. But I could do better than that. That's an appalling job. I'm also surprised it worked.

Hi,Yes its a shame to install junk in a nice host like the Arcane . The CU sink is massive this one is getting a 44 but the driver will be sinked on an AL pad or CU pad. The other thing is I think it takes 2X18350's I dont remember but thats what the customer wants.
I like taking these cart just to see the fine workmanship involved LOL !!

Wow, that is a mess. What is all over the driver/contact board? Looks like it was submerged in ocean water. That is some sloppy soldering, but he could have at least clipped the excess wire from the ground connection. YEESH!

Wow, I'm actually glad I never got my lasers from them and just got a refund from paypal. A damn Somalian orphanage could probably do better soldering work than that.

Yeah, he did have some nice hosts. Too bad he didn't bother to do a good job making them into laser pointers for people. I wonder if that was his work or if he farmed them out to other people to put together for him. It wouldn't surprise me as he was awfully lazy.

That diode is a 5.6 mm diode. There aren't any that size that output 2.7 watts. There is a 9 mm diode that does from back when you bought this laser. It is the Nichi@ NDB7875, but this ain't that. Probably put an M140 in it which will give you about 1.6 watts with a three element lens. If he used one of his S1 lenses it could output a bit over 2 watts, but that is it.

Wow, those ground connections and tacked on wires are probably one of the worst bodges i have ever seen.

I still wonder what all that crap on the driver board is... did you take these photo's after some component exploded on there or are they actually made like this?!
