Any LEP lights in Canada?

Due to the fact that Canada has outlawed most,if not all LEP lights due to the power of the laser….does anyone know of a lower powered and accepted LEP light available in Canada?Thanks,HB

Damn I didn’t know LEP was banned here? So which one is it nowadays?

1) Sellers will ship but confiscation at border is buyer problem
or
2) Sellers won’t ship an buyer ain’t getting it

Yeah…I think I read somewhere that anything that is a Class 3B(5mW) laser or more is prohibited in Canada.I was looking at the Weltool W4 which uses a Class 3B laser…I guess not now?!Thanks,HB

Ohhh 5mW…that’s peanuts. Won’t even burn things. Big Smile Well good luck in your search. I’m pretty sure you’ll pick one up someday! Maybe even two! Big Smile

The power of the internal laser is not relevant. DVD burners and blue ray disk drives have class 3b lasers inside but they’re perfectly legal since the laser diodes are buried deep inside and there’s no risk of a stray beam causing eye damage.

LEPs don’t emit coherent laser beams but do use class 4 lasers diodes (I believe based on the wattages they’re driven at) which makes them more like flashlights than lasers from my legal understanding. I don’t know why weltool and others classify their lights as class 3b laser devices.

Customs think they’re flashlights if they don’t explicitly say “class 3b laser” on them. Use LEPs responsibly and as long as you don’t try to stir up trouble (shining at vehicles and bothering people) you should be fine.

Thanks,but not sure I want to take a chance on losing a $400 light to Customs,once it comes into Canada.
Maybe I would be interested in a BLF GT90 instead?…..maybe. Thanks,HB

A GT90 would be a much more wow inducing light imo. Just make sure you get standard shipping and not use a courier like DHL or ups who will charge your $20 in brokerage fees on top of duties and taxes.

Oh Yeah that’s right. Neals an okay guy. He’ll get your goods delivered pronto! Cash The LEP that is. Emails from Neal… well, that could be a big challenge. Hope you have patience. Big Smile

I’ve had a poor experience in that avenue. Ordered an Avaritia N40SE which did arrive; then ordered an extension tube with 26980 cell. That was never seen – and Neal tried to resend. Again, border customs denied entry as ‘battery’ was on the manifest.
Don’t know why BG or Aliya ship, but not Neals Gadgets.

What I do know: the bigger stores use a shipping broker who looks into these things prior to shipping out. Had some items returned/retained in China till the sender sorted the manifest or used different shipping method.

MAXTOCH can ship LEP lights to Canada. Xsword L2K long version and short version, you may take a look.

He said he can ship to Canada and that was even after I asked him if the W4 was illegal in Canada…have not heard back yet after he said he can ship to Canada. HB

So what if they can ship to Canada?..but will they guarantee that the light won’t get confiscated once the agent sees it’s using a Class3B laser.
They are all (Customs agents) on to it probably,regarding (Class3b laser) being prohibited by now I would think.Thanks,HB

Yeah…pretty petty(re laser),same as an airgun that shoots over 500f.p.s. is classed as a Firearm in Canada and needs a license (PAL) to buy if over 500f.p.s..495fps is O.K. to buy. ?!HB

Is it legal to buy or own a soup plate in Canada?

I’ve heard a trained person can drown you in a soup plate and make it look like an accident.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Yeah is quite restrictive up here. Stun guns, automatic weapons, radar detectors, firewood, pepper spray, firecrackers....even fishing bait etc.

But no it's not like a utopian world up here. We still have our fair share of excitement up here.laughing

If you want a LEP across the boarder there are a few, I personally have both Astrolux WP1&WP2 along with the unbranded LEP from Neal/Vinh shipped and delivered without issues.

Thanks and I'm gonna try and contact Vinh and see how it goes. Plus I wanna ask him if some villagers really eat live flapping fish in their salad! Big Smile Can't get any fresher than that!cool

Speaking of fresh fish, Canada may have some interesting restrictions, but it’s a great country for fishing! Been to Ontario numerous times and caught lots of walleye and northern pike.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Yeah quite restrictive indeed. We’re mostly smugglers now. Wow Pike! Those are huge and prehistoric looking I must say. Back breakers I’d say. Oh btw, you must of noticed the price of gas up here? Big Smile Crazy indeed. Cash

Hey I just realized you’re my neighbor…citywise that is. Smile Anywho, I actually have a 5mW green laser I ordered a month ago. I think 5mW is allowed if I’m not mistaken. It’s great for scarring away birds pecking on our house vent pipes. Crazy
