    Default SOLD: Wicked Lasers Arctic Spyder 3 with extras

    UPDATE: 1.1W SOLD, I am going to keep the 870mW one (why? long duty cycle - good for photography)



    I am going to sell my two WL Arctics, $270+shipping each. Current price on these from Wicked Lasers is $395US with shipping. These each come with:

    - rarer G1 model with single simpler more reliable click-on click-off
    - laser, original box, manuals
    - expanded lens kit
    - battery charger
    - 4 18650's (that WL sells) fully charged
    - WL extended warranty

    - carefully removed the heat sink and removed all the excess thermal grease leaving only what is needed to make good thermal contact. It is understood that excess grease is actually an impediment to thermal dissipation, and also messy.

    - ensured the heatsinks were installed tight

    - focused the lenses at a distance of 16m (50') and installed them with teflon tape to secure them

    - both Arctics come with the lens protector installed as well

    - removed the glass window out of the 100% pass-through lens cap to prevent unnecessary power attenuation. You will get the glass window.


    The one laser averages 1100mW and the other 870mW. These are the one's I reviewed and posted here:

    What do you mean; it is still less than $300. The accessories might have brought the price up that much.

    I question wether the warranty has been voided by the "work" done to both units?

    No mate .... this is strictly a stereo version, I make it $540

    Anyway China to Canada half way round the world, the anodizing is probably shot to hell by now.. .....too many magnetic fields lines crossed LOL.......one channel pretty duff already ... a slow haul thru USPS and any buyer would be lucky if they work at all end up having to clout the damn balloon to get it to burst!

    Cheers

    The lenses are:

    - "trainer" lens which is an ND filter that drops the output power to a couple hundred mW
    - line
    - cross
    - diffraction grating (grid)
    - burner (short focal length)
    - flashlight (wide throw)
    - flood (very wide throw)

    the flashlight and flood at first seemed dumb but they are actually fun to play with, bathing a large area in the dark with 445. 445 causes some fluorescence.
