Go with Challenger II if you'd like a compact unit, Silver if you'd like longer battery life and longer runtime.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 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?)
That's awesome. I can't wait. I see Podo seems like a great person to deal with. Can someone tag Podo?? lolGo 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.
I'm inclined to agree with Crazlaser, the Silver is a much larger host and should suit you very well.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.
Going with Silver. Anddddddddddd. G2 as Podo suggested to me for burning.
Now to find safety glasses good enough to withstand 3 watts!!!!
