Podo,

First off thank you for making some really sweet lasers! I have a question. I ordered some extra lenses but when I ordered them I didn't see where to specify what wavelengths they are for. I know that some lens coatings are for specific wavelengths. How will I know which ones to use on what?

I've had a couple of weeks to play with the pocket 650nm and the pocket 405nm and they are so awesome! I like the 405nm the best out of the 2 I'd say. It has the G2 lens and I have placed an order for a replacement lens for it. (the G7) which should increase it's output a bit.

I can see the beam of the 405 and the 650 in a dimly lit room (nightstand light in the corner at night time) The 405 is dim and barely visible and the 650 is a lot brighter. Pointing to the sky at night both are fairly visible with the 650 being more visible.

I have attached a pic of the beam at night for the 405 pocket. It's a really cool laser for the size. I can easily melt plastic and cut through electrical tape with it.

Sorry for the late message but Ive been cramming for finals this coming week. I finally got all my lasers and put them together early this morning. SUPER HAPPY WITH ALL OF THEM!!! These things look great and feel solid and after figuring out the button combinations. Ill try to post some sweet beam picture when I get some more free time but here are a few in the mean time

Im not sure if there is a wrong way to run the batteries installed. Right now I have the negative ends facing the select switch and the positives facing the diode.
Also I'm not sure how to interchange the lenses, of if the lens ens is supposed to be closes to the diode or away when installed, anyone have experience there?

Wow. That's the coolest picture! Is that the 1 watt green in the middle?
Thanks! Yep! From left to right, 1W 638nm, ~50mW 589nm, 1W 520nm, 4W 465nm, and 900mW 405nm. Each of the Sanwu lasers has the 3x beam expander attached in this picture :)

Tried to get an updated set of beam pictures. It'll be the laser one for a while with exams this week. Anyone that's interested in Sanwu Lasers, you wont be disappointed!

Here is the updated gallery: My first laser collection - Album on Imgur

Wow, that's a really nice picture, and BE on each one to boot,(except the 589), sweet. Found me another Sanwu fan, teriffic! (It would be so sweet if Sanw came out with a 589nm. ) Was wondering if you got an adapter could you put a BE on your 589nm? :thinking: Anyways, I've got a pretty decent collection of Sanwu's going, here's my Guardians minus a tri-beam Guardian I hadn't bought yet when I made the post.http://laserpointerforums.com/f44/guardian-goodness-99192.html. And a another review I did when I added to my Sanwu collection . http://laserpointerforums.com/f52/s...i-beam-guardian-150mw-520nm-pocket-99720.html I've still got a collection of pockets and a Silver and a Challenger 2 and another Spiker just haven't got around to posts pics and doing a review ( I've been slacking :tinfoil: ). Thoses pictures with the BE's are really nice, those BE's really make a difference! Enjoy those puppies, I know I enjoy mine. :)

I was trying to figure out the second set of lasers below and I realized it's your pool right? Really cool pic. I just got my 150mw 520nm pocket and it's awesome. I changed the lens from my 3watt silver series from a 3 element to a G7 and it beefed up the output noticeably. I can straight up start a piece of wood on fire with that thing when it's focused.
