With the holidays just around the corner, it’s the time of year where we think of others through gifts, as well as ourselves. Over the past several years lasers and laser pointers have dramatically increased in popularity due to the advances in technology and decrease in price points for many popular models. Instead of gifting options people have come to expect, lasers offer a unique experience that combines technology, portability, functionality, research capability and overall enjoyment.
If you’re looking to buy laser pointers this holiday season it is important to do a bit of research into any model or company you may be considering. A few things to keep in mind are:
1. Is there a warranty period?
Lasers are investments in technology and any company that cannot offer a warranty on their goods should be put into question. Reputable laser providers should have warranty periods of no less than 3 months and preferably 1 year or more.
2. What color should you go with?
Laser pointers are now available in a wide range of colors and output powers: green, red, blue, purple, and yellow. You should consider which light color will suit your purchase best, possibly based on their current collection or lack thereof. As a note, green is always the brightest at the same output power.
3. How long for shipments to arrive?
The holidays are getting closer day by day and almost all laser pointers take 1-3 weeks to receive (some 1 week or less) so keep this in mind when considering your time frames for making a purchase.
No matter which laser pointers you choose, be sure to conduct your own research into laser varieties, styles, and any laser company you may be considering as a gift for someone special or yourself.
