So I have had this laser for a month and it is probably a good
time to review it. I bought this straight from Hakzaw.
Thanks Hak for this and the other goodies that came along with it.



This has the button code and a button for pulse mode.
This is a very cool feature, but I notice sometimes the buttons
do not respond if the laser has just been started up or if it gets
too hot as it seems to stick. This doesn't happen that often and
not a big deal as all you need to do is click the back button to reset.

It is about 10.5 inches (27cm) long and weighs about 2 pounds (0.9Kg)
with a battery in it. It is very sturdy and can easily be used as a club for
a weapon if your battery runs out. :whistle: Of course the design is very
sleek and the internal focusing is pretty cool and smooth.
Using my camera I've been able to focus it to a fairly small point on the
side of a house 900 ft away so the divergence has a lot of options.
This is easily able to burn through stuff and
once focused will smoke something instantly. It can run off
of a single 18650 or 26650 battery as well as off of a wall outlet.
When using the 18650 battery, the laser is usually steady around least at 700mW.
Using AC power, the laser gets hot a lot quicker.
At times it will begin flickering when reaching about 800mW and power will
decrease a bit. The wall transformer is feeding 8V for some reason. I got the right
transformer sent to me right Hak?
The 26650 battery has gotten it to peaks of 930mW.
Using the battery it starts to get hot at about 5 min.

Here is the output on AC power



This is using the battery and it doesn't always jump around this much,
but this is the best I've been able to get out of the battery with the chargers I've had.




Here are a bunch of various beam shots that show just how bright
this laser can be and there are some
high-res shots available as links below that.

Nice review,
Those last 3 hi-res. pictures make that beam look as if it has a heck of a curve to it.
Must be good for those "around the corner" shots. LOL
BTW - Hak has also mentioned to me that those transformers output 8v. :beer:

Those high-res shots were taken with a go-pro camera intended for 3D pictures and video. The lens is a bit of a fish eye.

Awesome laser---nice pictures---enjoy it!

What I like so much about JetLasers is the exceptional quality products at reasonable and affordable prices.
To find/have a Chinese supplier with integrity, making a quality product with excellent duty cycle and also providing outstanding customer service/experience is an uncommon treat!

Thanks to all.. If i understand correctly the circuit inside can run this laser on the 8vdc(with no load 8.27 vdc on my DMM)as well as a single 3.7 li-ion or any two that fit- sleeves can be used for the smalller batteries(included)- more extension tubes are being made-none in stock ATM. Jeff(bowtieguy) is getting the last one I have with his 445 1500 Pl-E shipping in the morning.
I have ample stock of 532 TiBs... plenty 26650 kingkongs and red sanyo 16650s(ti-b 2.0s)

to the OP- your review and pics are super!! TY +3
ALSO sweet go=pro you got there.. me want one(someday)
In stock..
also one pc 445 1W Pl-E ($259) in the very dark green host.
and Pl-E 532s 500-600-700 & 800 mW.(one of each).<all in the silver host.

mini reviews and metering pics coming soon.
tested the532/500 today average is over 600mW peak near 700. reg price is $550+$30(ship0- hak's forum member special $480.+$20
JL is allowing me to bin these so I will reserve the other prices until testing is done.
All will be overspec.

I don't mind...too much. ha I may be updating this review with
some new graphs later. I had a very good one, but my computer
crashed and I forgot to save just my LPM graphs to a flash drive.
Hak, when do you think the 10x beam expanders will be available?
I would get one of those right away.

Sorry- Slick- those were the first to sell out- then the 5X- afaik just a few of the 3X are left- i think some are coming to me in the next box.($50 for forum members)
I around a month JL will offer the new line of better BEs they have been working one- I assume they will be again 3x,5x and 10x- and for sure they will cost more- these current prices are 70% below old retail- as close-outs.


+3 for the well done review and great pics- the graphs match what I saw here.
JL appreciates the kind words.

Don't worry HitShane, That cat in the picture is just some stray that wandered into my living room. I think he was already blind though since he wandered in here in the first place. Probably smelled some tuna.
