I agree Alien, Sanwu host are so sold and heavy feeling. I should get a little scale and weight them, they are extremely heavy for there size. Gives them some decent cooling. I fancy the ingraved one like this. Sanwu calls it "grids and groves" They are just some teriffic hosts.

You should introduce yourself in the welcome section. :beer: May have an easier time dealing with people on here.

Yes, it got adopted. As suggested make a "welcome" thread and tell us a little about yourself. You know, how many fingers and toes you have, what species, what planet? You know important stuff like that.

Welcome and enjoy. :)

Alhough the host is exquisite, I prefer longer hosts which use at a minimum two 18650 batteries, but many like small hosts, I'm sure you will have a sale soon.

Hi BobMc, I know this is old old news but have never seen this thread and read the whole damn thing by the seat of my pants. What a rollercoaster!? Glad the 470nm Challenger II made it safely to your door and made your 520nm Challenger II a happy sibling.
I'm looking for buy their Silver Series 470nm or Challenger II 470nm. Just weighing up my options at present. Thanks :)

No worries, their getting along just fine and it made awesome addition to the family.. :)

Enjoy your Silver, I have one Silver and the runtime is noticeably larger than the Challenger 2’s... I sure you’ll enjoy them both...

Just a quick question BobMc,

How does the 470nm compare to the 520nm in terms of divergence, beam visibility?

glad they’re a happy couple! :)

I like the divergence on the 520 better, I think it stays tighter...Brightness, the same... Using them both side by side is a awesome crowd pleaser... So bright, they put a smile on the face... Be safe and enjoy.. BobMc

Thanks BobMc,
The 520nm NDG7475 diode is an awesome amount of green! It is pretty good for a high power diode. I have several Sanwu x3 beam expanders. When I put a x3 expander on my 1watt 520nm Challenger II the beam is incredibly tight, am expecting the same with the 470nm. Just trying to work out whether to go with the Challenger II host or Silver. I love both but the Challenger II's are a good size. My instincts tell my to go with the Silver, as 4.5 or 5watts is pushing it. I'll let you know what I decide. Looks like you finally landed yourself a bargain there.
I love Sanwu's multimode function, especially the safety lock. I wish they made all of their lasers have a safety lock mode then full power. ::Just thinking:: Thanks for reading. :)

Just a thought, if you are planning on carrying the laser around in your pocket, the smaller host would make it a tad more comfortable...But the run times aren’t nearly as long though, seeing the Silver is great for long run times..
Best wishes with your choice...Both, as you know are great....I know get both! :)

Be blessed and safe, BobMc :)

Hi BobMc,
Thanks for your replies...
You stay safe too!
What a year so far, we need lasers to keep us sane!

Jeep + rough open country + no city lights pollution + laser = fun fun fun!

Do you like the multimode version or single mode? I’m tempted to go with Silver for run time and multimode driver so can have safety lock and half power. Hhhmmm.

need a beer!
