NO!

That seller has 80% positive feedback on dhgate.

There's no quality assurance on DHGate, AND they're asking >$500 !

Use the search button. There is plenty of discussion about DHGate reliability and quality with lasers. That is to say, there is NONE.

End of story :)

Handheld 532nm 1W systems haven't hit the mainstream yet. 5W is definitely not legit.

At most it could be <200mW.

If you look closely on the label in the pictures you can see it says <200mW.

Take a look at the label in this Picture:


What a Rip OFF.:scowl:

If you're itching for a >$500 laser, check out Laserglow, Optotronics, or Glenn's CNI GB in the Group Buy section. You will not regret going with that quality.

Pretty sure that's a 16340 and not an 18650 too. Just another reason to not trust it
