Where do you plan on getting your module from? If you want a cheaper source and/or help you can just ask me :D

i just bought a 200mW green laser module from o-like and it arrived today, mind you i have already received a interception /warning from Aust Customs for importing "Whole Portable Lasers" >5mw 4 months ago


:p


As long as its just the module , dont stress, i had a reason to stress, cause i already had a strike against my name, and i wasnt sure, when i was in your shoes :p

Hi, Welcome to LPF!

Fortunately you can order just the parts and build one... no one looks at the components. Customs shouldn't be an issue.

Also many companies like o-like will ship to Australia, what they do is mark lasers as $5-$10 flashlights. You can also pay a little extra and have the laser shipped in parts, bypassing potential problems altogether.

I _have_ heard of modules being confiscated. However, it's much more unlikely than complete pointers. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Welcome to the forums :)
