if they want it back, tell them it will take 4-8 weeks for "processing" and another 3 months (?) for it to actually get there...

just send them a non-addressed "thank-you" card.

THAT is the right thing to do.

I'd offer to pay them for the cost of the laser (without the profit built in) should be around $100

just tell them the arctic will ship next week
:wave:

Funniest thing ive read on here in awhile! Also a great idea. It would be interesting to see if they get impatient and then just keep giving them the standard wicked lasers responses each time they inquire about it :na:

Two wrongs dont make a right. Also taking the high path is always admirable.

Still not what i actually believe:
This should not have occurred in the first place. Their company is clearly in shambles if they're randomly shooting out lasers to people on their address list while others are waiting months to receive theirs. It's an issue of respect, not of what's wrong or right - I don't see why we should continue to show them respect when they essentially vandalise the hobby for their own commercial gain.

Obviously people have different levels of honesty.

You can justify anything. Anything. You can bring up a million points why its OK (to you) to keep it, but is it honest, no. And you guys know how much I hate Wicked.

@ Mike. I'm not judging you bro, just giving my opinion.

On a different note, when I compare it to my Spartan it's definitely more purple. my spartan looks BLUE (as if it's equal or greater than it's advertised 447nm), and the Arctic looks like it's below 445nm.

Completely not true. I've found wallets, purses, IDs, and credit cards, and have always returned them to their rightful owners with ALL the cash still renaming. I've also lost my wallet a few times, and it was always returned un-molested. My ex is the same way.

Like I said, people have different levels of honesty. Some make excuses to lower their level. I dont. So dont say I would do things different, just because you would. Next time you find money, ask people the amount they lost first. This way you'll know if they are the true owner.

Maybe the Spartan has a diode from the 140== AFAIK WL used only 130 diodes(230 actually--same one tho)

One thing I'm not able to figure out is how to read the battery indicator on the Arctic. Each led flashes differently per mode you're on. At the moment if I have it on low without strobe it says I have 2 out of 3 bars. If I have it on high without strobe I have 1 out of 3 bars, but if I turn on the strobe on either of the modes the LED's will flash differently. I'll fully charge a battery and see they appear any different.
