Wicked Lasers produces some of the most powerful laser pointers on the market today. The laser company was even in trouble for making a laser pointer that looked too much like a lightsaber a while back. The company is back with a new laser called the S3 Krypton that claims to be the most powerful visible handheld laser in the world.
The laser has a range of 85 miles, which means the beam could leave our atmosphere. Therefore, Wicked says that you should not aim the laser at satellites in orbit because it could mess up the sensors on an orbiting satellite. The laser could also blind pilots.
The thing has 1W of power. That makes it 8,000 times brighter staring directly at the sun and it has 86 million lux. The laser uses special thermopile detector that lowers power to keep temperatures in line. The body of the laser is aluminum for rugged design. It sells for $999.95 (USD) in 1W form, $299.95 in 300mW, with a 500mW middle ground for $499.95.
