Wickedlasers claims that they are under new management and ownership, and will not be shipping lasers over 5 mw to the usa. (yeah right) Lasers are on sale now for 40% off! Probably Cracked down by FDA!!! Yeah! Check out their website!

Pretty sure they were bribed. That's what I gather about CNI as well, though we're not sure about them. Whatever the result is, it is good that WL is no longer going to be shipping their overpriced junk here.

They've been on pretty much every customs blacklist for years now, probably just gave up because the lasers never made it through .. the FDA has no say on what happens in China, or basically anywhere outside the US. CNI stopped selling pointers because it wasn't profitable. FDA has nothing to do with any of this.

Well that's good and bad. i personally like their laser's. But they are way overpriced. If you like the lasers grab them while you can.

Um, last time I checked, the government doesnt use bribery to uphold the law.

I'm glad you used a 4 letter word to describe their murchandise.

It's also interesting to see if their claim, "to ship to every country in the world" will still be there in January. If it is, we can call them on it.

Sounds more like a crackdown by WL new owners than by FDA.

Yikes even with 40 percent off it's still a bit pricy. What kind of diode is in the Inferno? 750mw of 660nm can't be single mode ...? :thinking:

i wouldnt buy from them even if 60% or more if this means early next year they will close down i wouldnt feel good buying from a company thats probably selling their last stock now and then they will byebye because seriously they cant make a business selling 5mW lasers only.

If it's really under new management maybe they'll start selling other cheap products like wicked lasers perfume or something :D
