Wickedlasers claim their Spyder 3 Krypton is the world's brightest handheld laser so powerful its beam breaks through the atmosphere into outer space. With a theoretical range of 85 miles, the S3 Krypton is the first and only handheld laser visible from outer space. Directly viewing the dot of a the Krypton 1-watt laser (86 million lux) will appear over 8,000 times brighter than looking directly at the sun. Safety goggles are a must.


A green laser was chosen because the human eye perceives pure green light brighter than red, blue or purple light.


The Krypton is the first laser to contain an internal thermopile detector. When excess heat is detected, the internal microprocessor gradually lowers operating current to ensure temperature stabilization. A Tactical Smartswitch 2.0 feature on the device offers 9 operation modes including 5 new tactical modes like SOS (Hi / Low) , Beacon (Hi / Low), and Tactical Hibernation. SmartSwitch technology locks out unauthorized access to your S3 Krypton making this super-powered laser inoperable when unattended.


The Spyder 3 Krypton has 100% unlimited duty cycle meaning you can operate the laser continuously, 24/7 with no risk of damaging the laser diode. Its aircraft grade aluminium chassis is a fully tested and proven quality construction.


The Spyder 3 Krypton comes with safety goggles, holster and storage case, rechargeable lithium battery and charger.
