Hello everyone
I just received my laser today, 15/12/11 which shipped on the 8/12/11, so just 7 days from China to Manchester which is fantastic as I took the `normal` shipping method
The laser host is nice and solid, mine is silver. The beam is a beautiful blue colour and bright (safety eyeware essential) and it burns everything!! It came with a battery, a charger(also charges 9v) and a pouch to attach to your belt.
I am a happy bunny right now :)

Yeah I now understand the need for goggles and with this laser they are essential as after I looked at the `dot` outdoors it left me with a yellow area in the middle of my vision for quite some time

How's the heatsinking on it?

I got the 635nm version a few days, and it's terrible in it IMO... extremely small piece of brass.

If it's the same in yours... that would be bad. Try to stick to 45 seconds on at a time max.

the heatsinking is like you say a small 2cm diameter piece of brass which warms up very quickly so I have limited myself to 30 sec to be safe. Do you know what the heatsink is like on the `Tactical 1w 445nm blue laser` from o-like?

Yes, I used to have one...http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/sold-67397.html

The heatsinking on that one is actually the best that I've seen on a chinese laser. It's a much larger brass disk, and quite a bit thicker. I felt safe running it for up to 90 seconds at a time.

I would take a smaller copper heatsink in a heartbeat though:)

Most o-like lasers use that heatsink.
They must upgrade it :devil:

I dont understand how you pay for lasers at O-like? western union? I have never used is and you just keep clicking next when you are perchasing and it just sends you an email so how do you pay? Im used to paypal or credit card.
Hiya Dedley

I have always used Paypal without any problems. I think you first have to register with O-like, it only takes 2 mins
Hope I helped

No, that's not it... I actually need to place an order with them soon too, so I'll post what happens eventually. Maybe it's still possible to send money via paypal, but I doubt it.

Hi walshy,

So that host crapy brass heatsink? Is it possible to replace it?
I´m getting the 200mw green version and if i can take it out and replace it by copper that would be sweat!
