Welcome to the forum! We're glad to have you here.

I don't believe Sanwu has any discounts ongoing, but you can get some free star caps with your order if you use the code SW01CAP!

You've made a good choice to buy from Sanwu, hope it works out! :D

Thanks for your timely response and input.

Before I click submit on my payment.. can you maybe help me to finalize it? I have a few questions. :)


--Which is better of these Sanwu?: Challenger II (3W) or Silver Series (3W) [both are BLUE 445nm]

--It shows single mode is available. Should I go with that? I heard it's 'better'.

--What do I do when/if it dies and is out of warranty? Will i need to buy a whole new one? (Cost wise at least... if diode goes?)

I have the sanwu silver series 3 watt and it is very nice. I prefer it over the challenger. I would go single mode, on this it means how many functions the lasers has like strobe. You probably heard of single mode diodes which are more of a dot than a bar.

Go with Challenger II if you'd like a compact unit, Silver if you'd like longer battery life and longer runtime.

Go with single mode if you'd like simplicity, multimode if you have children around or generally value safety.

If it dies out of warranty, Podo is usually nice enough to replace it anyway. :)

That's awesome. I can't wait. I see Podo seems like a great person to deal with. Can someone tag Podo?? lol

Now to decide between the Challenger II and the Silver.... any more input?
:wave: :tinfoil: :) :na: :crackup:

Yes, go with the silver series and get the extension tube. You will like it more than the challenger. If feels cooler and bigger, great run time, more professional feel. I own both. I have a silver series 3 watt and 800mw 635 challenger.

I'm inclined to agree with Crazlaser, the Silver is a much larger host and should suit you very well. :D

You could ask Podo if there is a discount code available. Doesn't hurt to ask.

Go here "Survivallaser" and get some "Eagle pair" safety glasses/goggles, you can't beat them for the money, they are a great product at a reasonable price! :)

Etit: Be sure to use discount code LPF445 for a 10% LPF member discount!

Okay great. I need to decide on to go with the G2 or G7.. I want to burn but I don't want to compromise the beam at mid range.

G7, G7, G7. Can't stress this enough. It's by far the best lens available. :D

^Read my quote. "Besides Sanwu."

I'd rather not have to wait for foreign shipping if someone in the USA has it. :)
