Wicked Lasers S3 Arctic Spyder III 1 Watt Blue Laser

The Packaging




The outside package is pretty basic, but since there is not a retail store in the US looking to have their pants sued off, you are not going to find the Arctic on the shelf.




Things start to heat up once we open the package. Here we see the laser is kept secure in a separate partition away from the add-on filter kit.


The Accessory Package




The most important accessory I found in our sample kit was the safety glasses. These aren't your workshop safety glasses that keep wood chips out of your eyes, but they are just as, if not more important. There are two different versions that shipped with our kit. The more aggressive kit is on the left and it will block out the most blue laser light. The pair on the right will allow you to see the beam while shooting the laser, but it will not offer as much protection.




Thinking back to the movie Real Genius, it is important to keep your optics clean. The Arctic S3 isn't going to catch fire in your hand, but you will get a much better beam with a clear lens. Wicked includes two lint free wipes and a really useful cleaning tool.


We also get to see the standard charger for the lithium ion battery that comes with the kit.




The second most important accessory is the literature that explains that you are not playing with a toy. You do know this isn't a toy, right?
