I have some 1.2 W 445nm blue lasers for sale. They use one of the older 445nm projector diodes and have a respective AR lens. The power range is ideal for handheld lasers. The laser module is cooled passively using a black anodized aluminum heatsink. The laser uses a focus knob to adjust the focus of the laser. The beam is extremely visible in the night and also somewhat during daytime. All parts are new and each laser will be built uppon interest, so these are new and unused.

Also included are 2 pairs of 16340 (total of 4 cells) batteries and a charger (EU plug). Hit me a pm if you are interested!
price is 80€ 70 inlc. shipping. Payment preferably via SEPA. I ship from Germany, only to EU.
Pictures follow.

1.2W of 445nm isn't very special these days. The price is a bit high, I think $70 us (~60€)would be better. The batteries and chargers don't add much value to most people since anyone worth their salt probably has better ones already. Can probably charge $10 or so for shipping. It's easier to justify shipping prices than an overpriced product.

these lasers use the aurora c6 host. 60€ barely covers the cost of parts for me. i then add the time and effort I put into carefully putting the laser together myself, also testing to make sure it works as it needs to. if the price is too high for you please dont spam my sales thread claiming they are overpriced. I am no company like survivallaser etc so i dont get to buy in bulk. afterall, people are free to do their own research before buying. jumping in a sales thread like that and stating that there are cheaper sources really isn't a polite thing to do. @Eracoyvyou wouldnt want me first posting in your future sales thread bitching that your prices are high, would you, especially advertising/linking other companies' products, which already the forum is full of...

I'm sorry dude I didn't mean to come across that way. i'd kind of made the assumption that you were liquidating an older laser or reselling another manufacturers product cause of the lighting in the picture that shows the host. My bad. I'll happily delete my comments no problem.

Good luck with your sale - The c6 hosts are quite nice and for a new build that's alright pricing. Had I not imagined the context for the sale I'd not have said what I did.

It's quite alright. No need to apologize. It's just that I would never do this to anyone. Maybe you are right, my lasers are a bit overpriced and I might end up lowering the price, then again, as I said, I add the effort of building to the total price, which is the normal thing to do.

I apologize as well, I assumed you got these in bulk from some cheap source and were just trying to make a quick buck. I might suggest if your going to do custom builds then do something a little more exciting than 1.2W 445nm. But that's just my two cents. Good luck with your sale.

He most likely made these builds a few years ago when 1W+ was the rage;)
They were also his choice to build........................

I'm sorry if my post came across as complaining. I intended to add some context that this is indeed a quality build rather than one of the common, low quality 301 models which was first suggested. I hope this would help your sale by providing some of the details I would have found useful. Perhaps it is inappropriate to post a specific company's equivalent product, yes. Since there isn't a guess at the model to correct, I'm fine removing what I posted if you prefer. I hope someone takes interest in this, as it is likely a nice build you've made. I would still recommend adding some additional pictures, though.

Actually, even if the parts for this laser did cost you close to $70, it is still a used laser. You cannot expect to make a profit on your labor from several years ago. To built this laser today would not cost $70, but the difference would be that it would be new. I wasn't going to post here, but if you plan on selling something online, you better expect to get opinions along with any possible offers. I believe $70 is still a bit high for this used laser.

how is it a "used" laser? i already stated that i have some leftovers from couple years ago, when the prices of the first diodes where still high (not when i first paid 42€ for a single diode :D ), but still high enough. The parts are completely new, all sealed, ready to build a laser out of them. I did not state it in my first post. I now updated it.

My Lord, why can't the OP just ask what he want's and let the buyers make there own mind up???????????????????????????
If anyone doesn't want one than butt out. It also just might not be as easy to get a decent powered laser in Europe except a crappy Thor..
