Picture of How to Properly Handle an Arctic Laser

first things first this is NOT your average play laser it is a state of the art aircraft grade metal covered laser , so powerful enough to burn through concrete,so how do you handle it ?

1)you need safety glasses(if u had it when it was ordered than its good)

2)pls do not be a villain by burning up someone"s bike or car tire cus the police come after ME and YOU so think of the consequences before doing these "FUN" things

Step 1: The Functions

Picture of The Functions

1)a new security feature of the laser called the smart switch that requires you to enter a secret password before turning on the laser

2)once unlocked the laser will go into these 6 different modes

          *low power
          *low power strobe
          *low power constant wave
          *maximum power constant wave
          *maximum power strobe
          *hibernation mode

Step 2: The Burning

Picture of The Burning

the arctic laser out of the box is already equipped with a training lens which reduces 80% of its power,by removing the lens and

equipping it with the standard lens the arctic laser emits the highest power possible a stunning 1 watt !

The picture in the Instructable looks similar to the picture on the Wicked Lasers website for the Spyder 3 Pro Arctic Series.

Does it really "burn through concrete"? The video on their site has the guy lighting matches, burning black electrical tape and pointing it at his walls and TV, so if I had to guess, I'd say the answer to that question is "no".

AND the supplied batteries have been known to heat up and explode.

A nice design but you don't want this laser.

Have a look at this thread 32 reasons not to buy an Arctic

You are much better with a 1 watt Spartan laser

I agree with the comments in the thread. How can stuff like this get published when there are more legitimate 'ibles that get bounced by the instructibles robot.
