Hey guys here is the fourth round :beer: :beer: This one is really unexpected. Kevin mailed me if i had time to do one since both him and me have more time on our hands. So i said why not :p (again) He sent me new prices, also on the website they changed. Their margins have become lower. So although the website prices changed to cheaper they still have to pay the same to produce it (not on all products). This means that you guys get products this round cheaper as last time but the discount in percentage is a little lower.

Round three was quite successful if recall correct. Both the FEDEX and DHL shipping went ok. Also QC was better than in the second round. Just like last time I want to give kevin more time for QC because it is really important. Just like last time I will put kevin to heart that he must check EACH laser for his sake. If not I will fly to china to tell him whatsup lol :p

You can watch the previous group buy's here:

Click here for GB 1
Click here for GB 2
Click here for GB 3

First of shipping:

0.5Kg:USD20,
1.0Kg:USD26,
1.5Kg:USD30,
2.0Kg:USD33,
2.5Kg:USD39,
3.0Kg:USD42,
3.5Kg:USD45,
4.0Kg:USD47,
4.5Kg:USD51,
5.0Kg:USD53,
5.5Kg:USD55,
6.0Kg:USD58,
6.5Kg:USD62,
7.0Kg:USD70.

1-2 pointers:0.5Kg
1 handheld:1.0Kg
1 portable:1.5Kg
1 Tripod 0.3Kg
1 glasses 1.5Kg

Then the defective orders or orders with problems: (Kevin on mail)

If someone’s laser is defective and he can prove that, we will replace that laser for free, no problem including postal mail cost and new laser. We can sign the contract.
Now if you receive a defective unit you will need to make a video about it and I send it to kevin. Then you ship the laser to kevin. If he confirmes the problem you get your shipping and an replacement back.
Customers who buy Portable and handheld laser < 500mW,and laser pen < 5mW
We will write handheld laser with our FDA accession number in the shipping invoice,
we can send handheld laser < 500mW(our IIIb FDA accession number ),
and laser pen < 5mW (our IIIa FDA accession number ),to US markets, no problem,
*
We are responsible for all lasers, occasionally held by US customs, refund or resend.

Batteries are not possible. Group buys always have a goal. For this one I am just going to set a closing date with minimum amount of orders. Depending on where we are by then I will decide if it is enough to make it happen. In round three the GB was on the small side.

All payments will be done through PayPal. Note for new members, members with a rep lower than 15 will need to send their payment via “gift” why? To protect myself from scammers of whom order a laser receive it and claim their money back. I just don’t want to get into that stuff since I put a lot of my free time into this and I am not getting payed for it by skylaser! I would cry If I made a loss out of my own pocket here. Notice that on the cheaper lasers there is a smaller discount this is due to lower profit margins. So bigger discounts are not applicable.

With the last GB most of the vets also made their payment as a gift. This is highly appreciated because the remainings will be donated to the forum. In round two we got a 322$ donation. That was the biggest order in skylaser GB history.

How it works: Collect orders till closing date -> taking payment (three days to pay)-> Sending order to kevin -> Distribute tracking numbers -> Handling after sales with you and kevin

Re: OPEN: Taking orders ROUND 4!: THE "Skylaser" (laserBtB) groupbuy!

Here we go again:wave:.

I'd like to put an order for 3 HL's:

HL - 515 30mW
HL - 532 150mW
HL - 445 1000mW

Are my calculations correct if I state it'd be worth of $312 incl. the shipping? I planned to spend just about $300 in this GB.

Was looking forward to this GB of yours, offroadfrak8582:).

589th post. What a symbolic coincidence:D.


EDIT: $276 in total, even better now. Great job, my man!

Re: OPEN: Taking orders ROUND 4!: THE "Skylaser" (laserBtB) groupbuy!

You mention that orders are covered for the occasionally laser being grabbed in customs refund replace in United States anything on Australia or is this only a US sale which I doubt? .I would have loved a high power skylaser PL 650nm 1000 mW in a group buy if it's covered for a loss ,had enough of loosing lasers .Especially expensive ones.

Subbed....ill be in for a 515 or 520 if this ends on the listed Dec 31 date :)
Ill decide which one after my surgery

EDIT: If anyone in the USA wants to split shipping then PM me and we can talk about it. If we get enough then shipping cost would be cut down a ton

Re: OPEN: Taking orders ROUND 4!: THE "Skylaser" (laserBtB) groupbuy!

Hey Offroads,
Since i have been in the other three, i will have to be in the fourth. You can put me down for a HL520-50mw 73 dollars + 26 shipping = 99 dollars

For anyone who has seen my photography and knows about infra red lasers, would the HL808 1000mw have any applications to photograph. I have read on the forum they have a dull red dot and very slight beam w/fog. Would it be a waste of time to buy one for that purpose? Thanks

Actually it is 276$ if i am correct at least :)

I believe his statement is worldwide with no exceptions. But i will come back about this matter.

Added benifit to anyone who wants to split shipping in the USA. I can meter yours prior to shipping it out to you if you want. Shipping would be flat rate 2-3 day I'm memory foam

ORF I appreciate the wishes :beer:

Re: OPEN: Taking orders ROUND 4!: THE "Skylaser" (laserBtB) groupbuy!

So they are shipped directly from china to buyers?

I ask because I had problems with the costums here recently and the just checked the package because it came from outside of europa and they needed to proof the value of it :/

Would be really nice if somebody does the same thing that livinloud suggested but for Europe.

(including metering the lasers I don't have a lpm ;) )

Re: OPEN: Taking orders ROUND 4!: THE "Skylaser" (laserBtB) groupbuy!

Is that a 450nm or a 460nm? The OP says one thing and the website another.

Re: OPEN: Taking orders ROUND 4!: THE "Skylaser" (laserBtB) groupbuy!

It's 450nm. There are no 460nm diodes commercially available.

Yeah shipping to germany can be a pain in the but. I remember blord doing it for a german member last time. Worked out eventually though!

No sorry not in the GB. But if you wish to add a non gb laser to a gb order that is possible though only not with GB pricing.. Sorry about that.

Is that a 450nm or a 460nm? The OP says one thing and the website another.

It's 450nm. There are no 460nm diodes commercially available.

There you go guys :) laserbtb actually has a quite vague habit of using non precise wavelength names (not all are incorrect). So if you are unsure which diode is used feel feel to ask in this thread. There are many member with such knowledge.

Greetings, :beer:
