Hi All,

We received four sharp 495nm diodes earlier and they have been made into our guardian housing and golden pocket housing.
Due to the very limited diode supply yet a lot incoming pms/emails inquiring about a possible 495nm purchase, we have decided to draw lots one of the 495nm guardian laser.
The lucky one will able be to purchase and get a hand on this exotic laser. :D:

Absolutely stunning. I hope a source for more of these pops up. This is very close to one of my dream wavelengths of 500nm.

I'm definitely interested, I haven't added anything to my collection in nearly a year, and this looks like a worthy piece. How do I enter?

Probably need to contact Podo and have him add you to the "draw" list; good luck if you decide to put your name in the hat! :D

PS - Glad to see you around again Sta! :beer:

It sure is! It peaked at 51mW just today... on an ultrafire battery! Pretty impressive stuff.

All good, the more the better for everyone but why all the wrong number!
And you engraved the hosts with 495 when they are all probably under 490! And 480 I think we only saw one reach 480 out of a bunch, Most were 475-478 I suppose your close enough IDK, Just my opinion never mind! Can I ask how much your price for a 495? Just curious!
