Wicked Lasers to End High Power Laser Sales to USA Starting Jan 1st

Wicked Lasers to end US sales - 40% off now though

After ten years in business, Wicked Lasers has a new owner. The company hasn't stated much other than what you see below, a new own and unfortunately, no more sales to the USA for products over 5mW.

The company has come under fire over the last few years from safety groups, people that don't like fun and even George Lucas. Without an official statement we don't know if the unwanted attention played a role in the decision to end US sales.

Wicked Lasers will no longer be shipping >5mW handheld lasers to US-Based cutomers starting Jan 1, 2015.

If you are a fan there could be something bright in your future though. The company has setup a 40% off coupon code. If you are missing a few products like me, now is the time to get them.

I'm sad to see things coming to an end. Hopefully the company can survive without US sales and doesn't mind shipping to Taiwan when I visit for Computex. If you are not sure what all of the fuss is about you can read our review of the Wicked Laser Arctic III or Krypton, both in 1w sizes.

I just placed my order for an Inferno (red) and Lunar (purple) a few minutes ago.
