My 5000 watt blue laser isn’t working off charger or getting hot!

Ok I just recently received the Odin 5000 watt laser and was super psyched on getting it upon arrival I took the batteries and threw them on the charger they came with and after a long charge i placed them inside the laser and tried to turn it on in which it never did, with the key lock unlocked. To my surprise the chord charger that plugs directly into to laser itself gets it to turn on and also shows a flashing green light constantly. I have no idea why it doesn’t work off the charger and surprisingly the beam isn’t no where hot when it emits one. There is no troubleshooting video I can watch and this laser didn’t come with any directions in which I think should have but none the less didn’t.

What ever an Odin 5000W laser is, I really don't think it's 5000W, it's probably 1-7W maximum

That's too bad. Sorry you are having problems with a new laser. Contact the seller to get a new one. I'm certain it is only 5 watts however.

So there is nothing wrong with it I can fix myself? This laser costed 450 dollars and for those of you that don’t know who Odin is please feel free to look them up on google since me being new here I can’t post the link directly on it nor can I take a picture of the laser…

I apologize it’s 5000 mw but ya like you said only 5 watts. There is troubleshooting for this thing nor is there any instruction manual for setting up properly. For me doing only the basic functions to set up myself it was pretty easy to fuck up I guess doing idk what….

If this is the same laser, notice battery orientation and mode switch. 5000 mW is definitely a "hot" beam.

I think you got scammed, a 5w laser shouldnt cost that much

You see I wish it was really that easy because I recall doing that same exact thing like in the video except I didn’t get the beam to light up after pressing the power button. When it comes to basic functions I have been trying to tell you all they don’t work! Why else would I be making this thread if that was all I had to do? Im looking to find tips or advice I can get for turning the damn thing on for starters, other ways possibly then the generic one or something I can do to make the standardized method does work. It’s brand new and so far it’s acting like a broken record. I want to fix it I hope so I can actually use it.
