The world of lasers and laser pointers has recently been turned upside with major advances in technology finally hitting the open market and readily available for sale online. The biggest news has come from two lasers which are currently under review by the Guinness Book of World Records as being the most powerful portable lasers in the world, the S3 Arctic (445nm Blue) and the S3 Krypton (532nm Green).
What makes these lasers so much more advanced than laser pointers and pens that most of us are used is a wide range of functionality and power. The lasers have been developed to be the smartest and most versatile hand-held lasers anywhere, ideal for a wide range of applications including: research, astronomy, military purposes, search and rescue, hobbies, and more.
With the incorporation of the SmartSwitch” engagement and disengagement system, the S3 laser series are capable of a number of different working modes offering each user a fair amount of control. Modes include: 1/2 power pulse, full power pulse, 1/2 power, full power, as well as, SOS, Beacon, and Tactical Hibernation modes (S3 Krypton laser only). This means that end users are capable of controlling the various functions via the smart switch. Possibly more importantly is the safety the technology creates as the laser cannot be engaged without entering a proper sequencing, meaning someone cannot just pick up these high power lasers and turn them on.
Power Meets Safety and Durability
The class IV lasers are capable of producing 1,000mW (1 watt) of laser power, making them visible for long distances. The 1,000mW S3 Krypton has a working distance of over 80 miles on a clear line of sight and has made a statement as the most powerful green hand-held laser anywhere. The lasers have been developed with aircraft grade aluminum casings as well, making them the most durable lasers anywhere on top of being the most powerful.
Price Point and Warranty
What may be the most shocking bit of information about the Wicked Lasers S3 series is the low price point. In the past, lasers of this high-caliber power were priced at minimum a thousand dollars and more, so the S3’s being under $300 has pushed the popularity and desirability of these lasers sky-high. Moreover, a laser brand that stands by the quality of their goods with a standard 12 month warranty displays the confidence developers have in the longevity and capability of each S3 produced.
If you know where to look you can find the S3 Arctic and S3 Krypton series to buy online, however, they are only available from a single United States based laser pointer source. Be sure that you conduct your own research into any laser model and company you are considering working with, not all laser brands or providers are created equal, and you should always see what sort of support is available to you should you have questions or need help. With even just a few minutes of research you can ensure that any laser you buy meets all of the expectations you have set.
