You can now select "magnetic controls" for the striker saber laser!
View attachment 61348

Magnetic control rings(Optional)
The magnetic control rings allow user to adjust the power of the laser from 100mW to 5000mW(5W 445nm for example) by twisting the control rings along with the control to the operation mode.
Very cool!

The limiting factor in removing heat from a heat sink into the air is the surface area of your sink and the thermal capacity of the air. The thermal capacity of copper is greater than aluminum so heat sinks of equal mass, copper wins every time. But, since copper is denser than aluminum equal masses mean there will be more aluminum by volume. If you make both to have the same surface area, copper still wins out. That is because it has a greater thermal capacity than aluminum. Heat moving into or out of a mass is the same reaction, just in reverse.

I would love a pocket 488 but I’m afraid it would get ceased by Canada customs..
What’s the chance it would make it across the boarder?

If they ship in in two parts, I'd say your chances are good at getting them both and putting it together. There is also 488nm lasers for sale on eBay for less and they have an unlimited run time according to one member here who has done several tests allowing the batteries to discharge all the way while checking power and wavelength.

just stopping by to say that i ordered a 50mW 505nm pocket from sanwu. i recieved a unit that only peaked at 24ish mW. also the lens was epoxied in really well and I couldnt remove it to swap it out. I emailed them and let podo know, asking for a new module and focus adapter. they have just shipped a whole new laser instead. they never even asked me to provide a picture of the LPM reading proving it was underspec, just took me at my word. I could have provided such proof, but it's nice to just be believed sometimes. they've earned my continued business and respect. I assume this comes as a suprise to no one here

1.6W 405nm sounds fun. 525nm? is there any noticable difference between that and 520nm I wonder? I ask because I dont really notice a difference between my 515nm and 520nm. adjustable power knobs eh? wish some of my units had that. waiting to see how the rgb looks too

They do have excellent customer service.
