They have 2 sights that might be confusing you..
A "US" link and a "International" link.. Both links give a LPF discount of 10% off.
Member "Garoq" is the owner, so look him up on the member search here if you want to be sure..

You have no way of knowing if the laser you bought is actually 5mW ---most Chinese resellers just say 5mW because that is the FDA legal limit and any output over that is illegal to import. They couldn't care less if you blind yourself--is all about chasing $s and saying/misrepresenting anything they offer that will support that end.

The Survival Laser glesses are more than fine for an 445mm or 450nm laser of 5mW and many time that power. They reduce the power to 1/100,000th of power intensity. As that Survival Lasers page tells you " These Eagle Pair goggles may be used when looking at the spot created by a 100 watt or lower power laser on a non-reflective surface.

Hi ok but how?will u buy the laser and test it?i did saw few tests it seems above 1 watt around 1.5-1.2
Silly question. Nobody is going to buy lasers to test them for you LOL Why would anyone do that?

Do you actually have/own a laser? If so post a photo of it and a link to the sellers listing of it.
Are you in the USA? If not what Country are you in?
Typically a 1.5W 445nm/450nm laser costs about $50 so it may not be worth the shipping cost both ways to get it measured.

You seem confused--first it is 5mW and then 1.5mW ---then you question if it is 1.5mW because it looks like a laser in a video?

Regardless---if you pay for shipping both ways very generously, Lifetime17 has offered measure it for you with a Laser Power Meter or you can buy you own laser power meter.

Hi Encap.
I was a little thrown off by him wanting to know if I will buy it, didnt get that at all. But if he still wants to know the LPM reading I will do it for free. and he can pay shipping. If he's in the states here 3.00/4.00 should do for first class under 14 oz.Anything above that goes right to priority mail. Thats how our PO works.
Thanks for chiming in buddy.

Rich:)
