I read your post just a few minutes ago.RA - Lucky as hell that you got yours... Seems yours slipped under the radar; Mine which was shipped this week looks like it ain't gonna happen, thanks to customs. I can just be envious and look at pics of yours <:}
Durring my problems with CNI they started to say that they were not going to do anything, but then I got Glenn involved and they got over it because of all the sales he gets them, I suggest you talk to Glenn about this situation, I know he has good contact with CNI by now Aryntha I sent you a PM about your PGL-400 BTWI'm going to send in whatever paperwork they require. As far as I'm concerned, I'm importing a laser that is claimed to be fully legal by a compliant exporter. It's just that I don't have the information to fill out on Form 2877.
I have left a message with CNI; If Ava understands what I'm saying -- (which seems to be a bit of a barrier a lot of the time here) , hopefully she can take care of it. It's not like this is a new thing to them, unless this *IS* a new thing as far as the FDA's crackdown goes.
I'll usually play with another laser for a 5-10 minutes and then it will power back up after that.RA - back to your topic, one thing I want to ask: How long do you have to allow your 473 to cool off before it performs well again? Previous one I had took an hour. These things DO like their duty cycle to be tightly observed, it seems.
