Does Sanwu Lasers have a Black Friday Sale?
Do they accept PayPal? I feel uncomfortable placing an order with a relative high value in case it is seized by customs. I read that Sanwu will only send a replacement order for an additional payment of 50% of the order value.
They only accept Credit/Debit Cards.
I don't know of any Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals because they are based in Hong Kong but maybe they are open to it.
I do believe the 50% replacement fee is correct but don't quote me on that. The risk of customs is unknown because you have not put your location on your profile.

Also, writing a short intro post in the "Welcome" section is very appreciated by the other members here and helps them help you :)

Hello there. Is sanwu up and running? There is a 3 laser deal I'm thinking of ordering. I'm in Minnesota, USA. I'm seeing mixed reviews on whether or not they will come. Thank you!

It's not Sanwu fault, they are a great company..
It's the protests over face recognition with people using lasers that is slowing down the shipping.

Sanwu is having problems from the HK/protest unrest as they report and perhaps other problems as well- who knows nobody but Sanwu knows the whole picture of what's up with/at Sanwu. Last update on the Sanwu Web site was 12 October 2019

Best bet is to contact them/email them at sanwuservice@gmail.com or use their contact page on the web site and ask about availability and delivery time for any product you may want to buy and any concerns about same.

You might want to have a look at JetLasers high quality excellent lasers---they have no problems with delivery and use DHL which get a package to USA in 3 to 4 days usually, sometimes quicker. See: https://www.jetlasers.org/index.php

According to Sanwu, the three 304 laser deal is part of their "Currently Available" products. I would still contact them if you have any concerns.
Jet Lasers is good, great actually, but there's nothing like Sanwu. 🍻
Good luck.

A good member to ask about Sanwu importing to the UK would be "CurtisOliver" Here: @CurtisOliver
As far as I know, the customs risk for the UK is similar to the US. Fairly easy but don't quote me on that.

Edit: Considering Wicked Lasers still ship to the UK, I'd say import risks are small ;)

UK laws and import restrictions are not black or white when it comes to lasers. There is no power restriction or laws against ownership or importation of portable lasers. However, portable lasers can sometimes be treated as offensive weapons. Of which they can be seized. So legally they can swing both ways depending on the person carrying out the check. I’ve never had a problem myself yet, just had the consequences of having hefty customs charges.

We might put low power pocket lasers (450nm/488nm/520nm/635nm) back on sales this november but high power lasers remains unavailable until further notice.

Hello, Francis.
Could you advise of estimated time of availability for the Tracer 20w LPM?
Cheers!

I'm so sorry Podo for everything that's going on. The world is going through a lot of s*** at the moment.

I will be severely sad and lost should something happen to Sanwu. I will hope and pray for everything to even itself out.

I really hope this all blows over and dont end up with some legislation being put into place preventing the sale or shipment of high power laser diodes. I own a few sanwu lasers as well as a 1 watt 520 nm jet and I prefer the sanwu hosts. The build quality is amazing on my striker sabers. You work for an amazing company podo let's hope we can pull together and help you guys get back to full scale business
