SF501B 100mW 520nm review!
So to start off I shall talk about Customer service --> shipping --> opening --> What I think of the laser --> Beam shots last lads
Thanks Gabe for providing. added to reviewNo numbers? Nothing about beam dimensions, beam divergence, current draw, voltage regulation window, focus, or power?
Here is the laser being measured by Eitan
So then, about a month ago since I ordered from sci-fi lasers and it felt like a long time! After about 2 and half weeks I still had not heard about my laser so I decided to give Eitan a PM about why its taking so long. Turns out the post office was being slow and there were many orders to make and that my order was going to be shipped the next day (Which was no problem). Every time I had a question Eitan replied within 24 Hours . So after messaging Eitan I messaged him a week later saying that i do not have my tracking code yet. He replied saying to give him an email which I did and soon enough he got back with a picture of the laser having its power measured (That is why I have no Power certificate which is again no problem) and also sent me a image of the package that was about to be sent out so it wasn't sent out after all cheeky . Shipping took about a week actually so wasn't too bad after all.
So The box! Its compact and easy to get into! The laser itself was wraped in bubble wrap and tightly fitted into a small white box! It could NOT of gotten damaged!
The Laser was neatly preserved in the box no damage or dust at all .
Thanks for this Eitan!
Laser and box:
Ok next please!
So the laser itself then. The laser is very well built. Batteries DO NOT rattle and the host is perfect in every single way! The lens comes with a dust cap that i keep on when I am not using the laser you should do this to .
The laser also is great for burning due to the focusing lens which is terrific for you mid power lovers. I think the laser is good for the people who want to start using powerful lasers like me (remember to buy some goggles!)
I am using my trustfire batteries (which I have already done a review of here: http://laserpointerforums.com/f52/review-2x-trustfire-16340-s-92657.html!) They work great in the laser!
WARNING!: BATTERIES GO IN NEGATIVE TOWARDS TAIL CAP WITH THIS LASER!

I have tried my best with my phone to take the pictures that I needed... Hope they all come out ok.
Thanks for reading and seeing!
I will hope to order more from Eitan in the future
