Well I got an Arctic G1, and I have to say its damn awesome! I will try to keep you awake with some good pics :) I will start off with one early morning beam shot!

Pretty nice eh?

Now that we have that out of the way, on to the review!
Lets begin with power since thats what you all want to know about it eh?

POWER!

This particular unit has peaked at 1,100mW! But I should mention that that was WITH cooling. At room temperature It peaks at about 974mW and averages 775 to just over 900, quite a wide range, I know.

Divergence.

The divergence on this unit is VERY nice! At the aperture we have 4mm and at 41 feet we have 1 inch. This gives us a divergence of 1.168298553020084 mRad which is not bad!

I am very happy with it overall, but it makes me crave more power.
Now here are some videos and pics of the laser!







Here is my Arctic making a cool thermal reaction!


Here we light a match "The hard way"

Nice Dustin, you are one of the chosen few to receive a nice Arctic :beer:

Did you also test the power without the lense in front of it?

Very nice review, well done.....I thought WL switched from the green cells to orange "IMR" type, that was reported by another user; but maybe WL is not consistent with that. :thinking: In any case love the pics you posted.

He bought this from another user who got a G1 before they switched to the orange IMR cells.

OK, Thanks; because I had just read a post this morning about the orange "IMR" cells and was wondering why the difference, and that answers that.
