Hi
I'm considering ordering a laser from O-like but i'm worried it won't get through customs.

I am in UK & wondered if anyone has experience of ordering from them to UK?.

I have heard from here that rayfoss are reliable too but the site is down & i don't know what they have!

thanks

Why wouldnt they get through customs? they are perfectly legal.

Ive bought several lasers and others from them...no probs!

O-Like are reliable.

Hey Jaycey

Good to get reassurance from a uk buyer, i just thought that 200mW lasers weren't allowed through into uk.

Jaycey, did you ask to send batterys seperate etc?

Only ever bought modules so batteries wern't included.

But again, theres no restrictions on 200mW lasers so buy with confidence.

There is always Customs & Excise though (Import Tax etc) but have not heard of anyone getting stung there.

Hi jaycey, i ordered last night & before i told her what i wanted & she said she would send seperate & i put it in my message when checking out & in paypal, but i forgot to write the order number!
I guess this will be ok though as before i went to paypal, the summary said my address & the item, but it don't say it in paypal. Should this be ok?, i'll prob talk to her later!

Has all things gotten through to you ok as your in uk too?

O-Like are a great company to deal with, they have a rep named Susie and if theres any problems she will e-mail you for sure.

Ive never had any probs with any of the far east dealers and Customs so I would say your 99% covered!

You had to ask that big question...How Long!

Ive had stuff from O-Like turn up in 7 days and ive had stuff take 5-6 weeks last module took so long I started a paypal dispute, then it arrived a couple of days later.
But it has allways arrived.

I dont have a power meter but most ppl have received over spec lasers from O-Like.

ah ok, i guess its situation depending!!

Is overspec getting more than bargained for or a lesser quality item?, it can be misinterpreted lol

she said mine maybe a bit under, but i guess thats to surprise me when actually get it lol
