Banggood 3.5W TTL laser module
« on: July 17, 2017, 03:43:56 AM »
Hi all,
    Just received an email showing the 3.5W TTL laser module now being on special offer with an 'apparent' 45% off. Now less than 55 GBP.

I am pretty sure this is NOT an EleksMaker product, but still not a bad price.

The only thing that makes me wonder, is some of the items in the spec, I'm not sure if it suggests a weak product or just usual issues with their Chinglish!

Power Max. 3.5W, Average 2.0W.   >:(

Note :
The warranty period of laser module is one month. If you have any quality problem(Except individual situation like using the laser
module more than 30 minute one time and casue the damage ), please feel free to ask our customer service for a help. Thank you.

In other words, our warranty lasts until you open the box then all bets are off   :D

Oh and dont use it too long! ;D

You really gotta wonder sometimes...

Note the new version/old version pictures? 12 hours continuous on-time in the specs table but 30 minute limit in the following footnotes.

Same information on their 7 watt head except it is an average 5-watt output.

Probably the same people who don't think they need to put gas in their car when the light comes on. ;D

Did you end up ordering this? I'm trying to decide if I want to order a genuine eleksmaker 2.5w laser to replace the stock one that came with my A3. If I could get a 3.5w one that would be great. I have logged over 400 hours on my stock one and I'm wondering if it's going to fizzle soon. Not sure what the lifespan is on these.

I haven't received my A3 yet.  So bear with my newbie question.   I have the blue 2.5 coming, my understanding is it can only be used 30 minutes at a time... How long does it have to cool down for?  But this 3.5W is saying mixed info, 12 hours, but also the 30 minute limit?

Getting consistent and accurate specs from Chinese retailers is not part of the reality game.
