It's Chinese new year for the past two week, usually epocket service takes around 6~12 days to arrive any destinations but post office closed for entire week..so i think you may have to wait for few more days.

Wiki has Chinese new year from Feb 19th - Feb 25th. If what you say is true the item never shipped yet and I'll be waiting another week or more. You told me it shipped on the 13th which is within the last 2 weeks yet you also say China post has been on new year break during that same time. Don't really care if it arrives or not anymore I loose interest quickly with things and free time causes me to venture into other things which I've been doing. Thanks for the chance though.

hmmm, if the lens didn't come within a week start from today, refund will deploy in your account even you received it later on, for nuff said.

I am getting 3w+ out of this lens from a NDB7875 handheld with a good divergence like three elements.Kinda frustrating for reactions I have received from people. Next time I would pay a little more for tracking service and I am really sorry for the package late.

OK. I got the lens today and was just taking pictures before I tested it.

At the moment I'm going to hold off on testing until I can clean the barrel. The lens is NOT removable and the inside of the barrel has some metal shavings and I'm not sure how to clean it, or at least don't know how to right now

Some pictures of lens

I have messed up a few lenses trying to get
them perfectly clean. Sometimes it's best to
just leave it alone.

True. I just don't want any of it on a diode window so will probably never use the lens. $8 so it wasn't much of a loss right.

Diodes should be okay. It looks like the
contaminants are on the convex side of the
lens that would face away from the diode.
The worst that could happen is that some
could get on the front part of the lens.
As long as the rear and the threads are
clean, it should be okay for a test. :beer:

Well as I thought about it (and seeing Lighting Stalkers post) I figured that it would be safe to do a quick LPM test of the lens against a few others.

Laser used was a Blord 2.5w 445nm 501b
lenses used 3 element, G9, G2, MP9, and this new G7 from Podo

UPDATE video was removed until further tests are done

Oh it's better than G2 in your lpm test. (is it really G2????)

G2 should output more than G7...tbh in my lpm test.

Don't forget to check the divergence too!
