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€ inlc. shipping. Payment preferably via SEPA. I ship from Germany, only to EU.
Pictures follow.
price reduced to 80€
My curiosity compels me to ask how you reduced the price from 80€ to 80€ ? Is this an oversight or cleaver tactic ?

---edit---

I have no interest in any 1w multi mode diodes however I could be interested in your drivers if you have spares for sale.

the other day I updated the price to 90€ and today to 80€-
the driver is from ebay, bought them almost a decade ago. they are buck converters outputting around 1.25A

BUMP for the seller
and sorry to see you being treated like this. GSS said it best.

AND I guess I am ripping off anyone by wanting $150 each for two gently used 1W 445 Pl-Es (A-130 diode from NEW Kasio- I know coz I did the harvest personally).
$275 for the pair.
And like the ones the OP is offering- if/when it fails you still have a great host to rebuild.
Conduct your own 'test to death' review. I have never taken a PL-E apart so cannot offer support myself. others can help like Jayrob.
Buy one or both these from Electech you have the actual builder to ask for help.
last bit of threadjacking (but in a nice way)

about shipping with those batts in same box.

IMHO that is a bad idea. I wont do it. Ship the batts aloneOR you/they can buy them 'locally'.
would you ship a loaded gun?

Can you imagine all the bad things that can happen with a poweful laser? -- no way could an inspector open a package and NOT 'try it out'

When I win a echbay auction (china) for laser free w/ batts I ask the seller to KEEP THEM-- & the chargers (no offence) are worth every penny you did not pay for them. Even JL's chargers are not 'Smart chargers'
I use the cheapest chargers ONLY as a source of recharging parts for special builds where I do not want to remove the li-ion(s) in order to recharge.
The Charger offered by the OP looks to be a better than average. ... but NO batts should not be shipped across borders w/ laser--buy batts 'at home'.

Unused diodes do not spoil and the cost of them back THEN is what it is (or was)

That diode was seen as extremely 'robust' and they still are.
actual last word
The OP is a vet.... imho he deserves a bit of respect please.

thanks for your input hak. I don't see how the price on these is not right at 80€ , when I put a lot of time carefully building and testing them, applying heatshrink tube(see attached picture) and whatnot.. YES, there are sellers out there not using it.
you are right about shipping the juice separately, but it won't make any difference since I ship these within EU. unless they treat packages shipped out of Germany but inside EU different like the ones shipped WITHIN Germany, there should be no problem with customs, since they won't check. I will ship them separately just in case though, if the customer is outside Germany. There is no issue with that. And yes, these diodes are beasts. my "prototype" laser from 2010 is the same as the ones I offer here, it still works as new, does close to 1.2W like on the first day.
