Thank you for the thoughtful and immediate replies Photon Master, again Sanwu lives up to their brand name of supplying super-powerful, well-assembled lasers in sleek designs. I am definitely looking forward to buying my pocket laser, it has been hard to wait until Black Friday to check if Podo will give deals.

I also came across a very strange website that seems to be selling either knock-off clones of Sanwu lasers, or for whatever reason an actual second retailer for Sanwu lasers that are much cheaper than the actual SanwuLasers website for whatever reason.
This is the website that I'm talking about, and the specific listing (I can't post links because my account isn't old enough, just remove the spaces in the URL and search for the website).
LaserPointerStore - Sanwu Pocket Listing:
https:// www. laserpointerstore .com/products/sanwu-pocket-series-laser-pointer/

In case the listing gets taken down, I have taken a screenshot of the store for Podo to check out if this does happen to be someone trying to steal business from Sanwu. I have attached that screenshot below. They also claim to be offering free goggles (unspecified as to what OD rating or what wavelength it is for at all), batteries, charger, and shipping on orders for the Pocket series. All for 30% less than the Sanwu official website. Very strange. I would love to hear directly from Podo about this.

I also attached a screenshot of the collection of Sanwu products that the laserpointerstore website is claiming to sell, again all offering some discount off the official price, usually around $20.

I'm still not entirely sure how to tag a member, or if I did tag Podo with the reply at the top of my post, so if not would someone mind asking Podo if this is legit?

Is everything alright over at Sanwu? I wonder what with all the complexity of PRC these days... My first laser from Sanwu was/is TOTALLY AWEsoMe. But, now, I am going quite a while without a reply (on a second laser, of course much more of one!).

I hope that SanwuLasers is doing well despite the issues going on in the world currently. From what I read on these forums they seemed to have a really good reputation. I am very excited about the pocket series laser that I just ordered from them (Pocket 445nm, 800mW - with the OD6 Eagle Pair Laser Goggles (190nm-540nm)). I was hoping to get a discount for Black Friday, but I knew that it was unlikely.

I also have a few more questions about the goggles I ordered, if anyone could answer I would greatly appreciate it. --- Basically, I do not completely understand which colors it will be useful for. I basically ripped this straight from survivallaserusa .com, but basically "They are suitable for use with 405nm violet, 445nm blue, and 532nm DPSS green lasers that DO NOT produce significant amounts of unfiltered 1064nm infrared light. These Eagle Pair goggles may be used when looking at the spot created by a 100 watt or lower power laser on a non-reflective surface."
Is this accurate? 190-540 should cover most lasers other than yellow-green, yellow, orange, and red lasers correct (obviously I am ignoring invisible light too)? And does it make sense to buy OD6 goggles for a 800mW laser, or will it block out too much of the light?

I hope shipping does not take too long (past 30-40 days lol), and I hope the laser is still of a decent quality like what I read on here and saw in videos. I'm definitely looking forward to it. Also, my debit card was declined when I tried to order the laser, but I think that might've just been because the company was chinese? I'm really not sure. After validating the purchase and reconfirming the order, the order went through and I received a nice email and pdf receipt saying that I'll receive tracking info in 5-10 days or so. Very excited!
Thank you for supplying sleek lasers with awesome diodes, Podo :). Good luck with the laser business.

Hi, my lasers took 16 days to arrive in USA. I’ve always used red glasses when I use my green and blue lasers but I also bought the 190/540 glasses you’re looking at because I was getting a violet. They work great for the 7 watt blue. I can barely see the spot indoors and not at all outside. The build quality is insane… I thought the silver wasn’t focusable because it’s machined so well I couldn’t feel the groove with my thumbnail.

They forgot to ship batteries with mine. I let them know earlier this week and yesterday I received a pair of nice 18350 and 18650s from them.

Awesome company

Everything is alright as far as I can tell. In fact, no matter what's going on, Francis has been great to talk with (and I'm a tricky customer, being between america (N) and africa! )

How long did it take to reply to you? Their "live chat" has been pretty bad anytime I've tried it.

Sanwu has been great communicating via email. Same day or next day replies are the norm.

"live chat" is pretty much a bullshit move even with giant companies, some dumb wannabe-ai algo that may eventually redirect to a third-party CS centre with low credential 0-expertise. . . I rant.


Francis is my POC and everything has been clear, responsive, and collegial. I recommend Sanwu.
