So I thought this review would make a good first post on this forum because I know a few people were curious about it. :p

October 29th: ordered
November 4th: shipped
November 14th: arrived
So, it only took 10 days to get the West Coast in the US! Very quick shipping, I didn't even choose the fast option! Very cool.

I found this laser in the mail yesterday which is interesting because many other members here said all o-like lasers require a signature. It came in this small box that was very well sealed.


Inside is the laser, battery and charger and lots of bubble rap.



There was a black and silver version of the host according to the pictures on the website, so I guess I got the black one. As you can see, the host is very nice looking.



It somewhat resembles the Artic. It was alot smaller than I expected, but it feels sturdy and strong. There is a clicky button at the end for constant on/off.



The host is supposed to be waterproof, but I 'm too scared to test that out :undecided:... After charging the 18650 battery for about 3 hours, I went outside (with my goggles of course) and tested it out.



Woohoooooo! It was very bright! I don't have an LPM or anything, but I compared it with my 5mW green and it was a BIG difference. The beam is very impressive. Here are some more shots of the beam:




Another cool thing about this laser is that it is focusable. I can turn the head so that the laser dot turns into an enormous flashlight or a tiny little spec.

I haven't tried burning anything yet, but I easily popped a balloon when focused right. This laser seems to be very stable. The beam stays one single, nice dot always. However, the only annoying thing I have experienced is this ring around the dot. It is not that bright, but very noticeable. It bothers me. Overall, its a very nice laser. Its a big step up from my 5mW green. It is capable of having diffraction grating cap things screwed on the end of the laser, which is very neat. I will try to post some pictures of this soon. I wish I knew if this laser was really 50mW, but from all the things I have read here, it fits the description of a 50mW. Ask if you have any questions. Thanks! Hope you found my first review helpful.

Nice to see reviews of this laser, good work.

Though, if I may, reccomend you try measuring the input current (at the tailcap), do you know how to do that?

It would be an interesting thing to know if the power is known (though I can see that you don't have an LPM, doesn't matter).

+1, it looks like this is one isn't IR filtered from the photo with the safety goggles. That's not green light on the wall, seems like the camera picked up the IR though...anyway nice review.
