I'd like to thank Joker first off. For all of his patience through the process. I Ordered the laser Mid November just before thanksgiving so there were some delays all in all the laser ending up arriving around a month later.
One other issue that occurred was he sent the wrong color by accident. He offered to stop the shipment after he realized but in an effort to save a major pain in the *** i decided not to worry about color after all it's a 3 watt laser either way :wave::wave:

So My two Greens, 301 405nm laser all compared to the 3 Watt monster :)
Also the bubble wrapping is what the laser came in. Not the best wrapping i've seen but it seemed to protect the laser just fine.


I Think the size of this laser is perfect. I like it over the old arcane "only judging from photographs" Because it's size is more even throughout the laser. It has weight to it and feels sturdy it's also so nice to have a laser with a constant on and off button and side clicky :D

There's a couple important things i'd like to note
SOME 18350's Do not fit in this laser I cannot speak for all!

For anyone ordering this laser one other thing i'd like to address is the focus ring. The focus ring is a vulnerability in shipping
Joker i'm sure addresses this with all of his customers because he addressed it with me before it even happened to me.
I'm mentioning it though because i had a separate issue also occur to me.


As you can see from the photo above the lens itself screws into the focus ring and then screws into the copper heat sink allowing the lens to turn with the ring to focus.
Mine was detached from the focus ring on arrival which is a "common thing"
But mine was also hit during shipping and the threads in the ring were bent.

Now this was on the focus adapter ONLY. Not on the lens or the copper heatsink. Now if this were to happen to you its like :wtf::thinking:
OR :banned:
But in reality it's not that big of a deal. It will screw onto the laser at an angle and will be a little offset. But because the lens is attached to the focus cap it won't affect your beam or your lens one bit. It's just more of an annoyance. So to let you know don't panic :D Joker also offered to send me a new focus ring when we figured out that was the only problem :thanks:

Couple more close ups




Beam Width at 60 Feet




Which is exactly an 1 3/4 Inches or 4.5 cm
Even with the beam that wide it's still putting black marks in my orange wall :tinfoil:
:shhh:

Overall this thing is a power house
This laser will get pretty warm after 3 Minutes. When you Just use one 18650 i've never had the laser get warm which is another plus for messing around with one battery :)

From 6 Feet to 20 Feet here's another youtube video of Fun with matches

I'm extremely glad i made this purchase Eitan/Joker Is very informative and helpful during any questions and through your entire ordering process.
Unfortunately i don't have an LPM so i'll provide one photo Joker provided to me instead


Thank you all for reading :D
I will provide some night beam shots and any requests if i can
Thanks again Joker

Adding a couple beam Shots at night :)





Lights up everything :D

That is a nice laser ! Could you do me a favor and always make sure that your cat is @ a safe distance because I saw that your cat was near to the laser that is quite dangerous and not so responsible from your part.

So what diode were you supposed to get? Obviously you received a 9mm 445nm.
