Re: XPL discussion - "the miracle company"

If you guys are still planning a group buy for this, count me in for one of the RG yellow 100mw's with no accessories please. This is very exciting

Re: XPL discussion - "the miracle company"

I thought the only customs hassle with batteries was Li/ion batteries. Are NiMH flagged as well?

I'm definitely planning it. Considering all the interest, I might go and create a feeler thread soon.

No. NiMH are not flagged, and I found some cheaper sources as well. So ''no batteries in GB" will stand. :)

I haven't been in the GB section on here for a while, is the point of the GB that the actual seller gives a discount for buying lasers in bulk, or does it just minimize shipping hassles?

Both. They're most relevant for sellers that only sell in larger orders though.

Re: XPL discussion - "the miracle company"

Sta - one last inquiry please. Would they consider a low powered 638nm (anywhere from 5mw - 20mw) and a low powered 515nm or 520nm (5mw-20mw) RG:Y unit?. If they happen to stock these diodes. Just a thought. Sorry for the multiple questions, I thought of it afterward though and I'd be upset with myself if I didn't at least ask.

I already asked - sadly, they don't have 520nm diodes.

Re: XPL discussion - "the miracle company"

I've never been in on a GB here. I know we're waiting on the better hosts but as an example look at this 1500mw 520nm. Wholesale XPL-H532G1500 Real 1500mw high power green laser pointer - Alibaba.com
On my own I would pay $395 plus $21.59 shipping. I see that at 100 units the price drops $30 per unit. In a group buy what kind of money are we looking at? An educated guess would be fine. Thanks.

Dcrets, I've created a feeler thread in the GB forum. I have listed the approximate prices (minus shipping) for each laser there. :beer:

Re: XPL discussion - "the miracle company"

I had their 500mW 532 and all of a sudden it just got out of focus and since it isn't a focusable laser idk what to do. Is there any way to get it back in focus? It's a great laser so hopefully something can be done. Thanks!

Re: XPL discussion - "the miracle company"

It's just an out of focus DPSS spot, my phone camera won't show much as the laser is too bright

What about taking a picture of the dot through safety goggles?
Also, you should try taking a picture of the aperture (WITH THE BATTERY OUT!!!!!)

There's usually still some way to focus them. You might need to do a little surgery though.
