Yes. I have never owned one but dont see anything bad around the forums from them. Use the search bar and browse around.

Survival Lasers are good, they are owned by a member here, very reputable, and never a bad review of them that I've seen.

What was the owner's name... Garoq I think?

Thanks for your replyes. I would buy a survival laser I 1.1w 445nm handheld laser, is this a good one?
I'm guessing you are a fan of the 445 spectrum and your budget is around 300USD.

For that I recommend you to go for the
Copper Diode Option

Copper Extended and Tampered Heatsink


At 1.4mW , the heat generated by the diode needs to have an effective mean of dissipation to maintain its service time.

You can also use some Thermal compound to fill in the microscopic imperfections between the contact surface so as to improve the interfacing of heat from the diode to the host. (Better heatsinking is always a plus) You don't necessarily have to buy from Survival Laser on that one, plenty of other options out there

Depending on what you want to do with the laser you can also switch for different optics.
For example, for long ranged beam shows , you'll want a 3 element AR coated lens.

For short ranged burning , you'll want a G-series lens for minimum power loss during collimation.


In the end , there are plenty of options , all that matters in the end is what do you want from the laser and how deep is your pocket :p


And safety goggles I have home, so I dont nead to buy one.
As for the safety goggles.
Glad you got safety in mind. :D
1.4W of focused pure energy is no joke.
Just in case , are your goggles OD4+ and CE certified?
You only get 1 pair of eyes after all .
