News: Update 1-27-2010:
I recently have moved to Houston, TX, USA and have started a new job. The post offices in Houston are quite different and require much more time on my behalf to ship international packages, and because of this I am implementing a $7.50 shipping charge to all International customers (non-US countries). You will see this when checking out and selecting the country you want your purchase shipped to.
US Domestic customers will still enjoy free shipping.
News: Update 11-17-2010:
From Thursday 11-18-2010 till Monday 11-29-2010 I will be on vacation and not able to ship out any orders. If you order during this time I will be shipping it out on Tuesday 11-30-2010. Sorry for any inconvience and have a great Thanksgiving with your family!
I got some GITD dust caps! Will be including them again with 405nm and 445nm orders :)
Go Texas Rangers!
News: Update 6-29-2010:
Happy 4th of July everyone! Enjoy the celebrations with your friends and family :)
News: Update 6-13-2010:
I will be back home in a few hours on Sunday night and will work on all the orders today, all orders will be shipped tomorrow. Emails will be sent to you with tracking information.
I have remade my website using OsCommerce. I believe this will be beneficial to everyone :)
Because of me redoing everything again though all old accounts will have been deleted.. again. Sorry for this inconvience. The site is better with this new layout though.
I will be out of town on a family vacation till 6-15-2010. All orders will be shipping out at that time. Sorry for the delay and thanks for understanding.
News: Update 5-29-2010:
Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! Hope your enjoying the time off. I'll be having my 9% off sale on everything till Monday night for the holiday :)
Site is all set up for PayPal at the moment and all items are in stock. I'm working with IceStorm hosting to set up Google Checkout and Credit cards again. Will be a couple more days on that.
News: Update 5-20-2010:
Website is back up on a new host. GoDaddy had many problems with security the past two weeks so I have taken on a new webhost. Sorry for the downtime earlier, I had to update the website to the newest version of Zen Cart in order for the site to function correctly. I'm working on getting everything put back for sale now. FYI: All accounts have been reset and all order information is gone. Email will be the only record of previous orders. I was out of town on a business trip last week which is why the site was down for so long and is why orders have been delayed. All previous orders have been shipped now though. -Kendall
Over in the Lasers Section, I'm testing out a new way of selling items on my website. There are options near the bottom of the page to select how you'd like the Laser. Choices are Sled, Harvested Diode, Diode pressed into Aixiz, Diode pressed into Sure module, then Diode in Aixiz w/ Rkcstr driver, and Diode in Sure w/ Rkcstr driver. Also I set up bulk discounts on the sleds, the discount applies to the base sled price but will still be cheaper if buying multiple "Harvested Diodes" or "Diode in Aixiz Modules" (or Sure Modules). Thanks -Kendall
Over in the Sleds Section, I'm testing out a new way of selling items on my website. There is a drop down box near the bottom of the page to select how you'd like the Laser. Choices are Sled, Harvested Diode, Diode pressed into Aixiz, Diode pressed into Sure module, then Diode in Aixiz w/ Rkcstr driver, and Diode in Sure w/ Rkcstr driver. I'll give ya a 12% off coupon code for anyone that can give some feedback whether you like this way of selling items or the way I'm doing it now with separate items for everything. Thanks -Kendall
I'm happy to report all my federal and state taxes have been paid off and I'm in the process of restocking everything. I just ordered some more TrustFire Protected 10440 600mAh 3.7V Battery so it will be a week or so till they get in. I'll buy more batteries and flashlights within the next few days / weeks.
Thank you for your business!
News: Update 4-11-2010:
I would really appreciate if you have the ability to use my Credit Card checkout when purchasing items. This saves on fees that would go to eBay (owns PayPal) and I'd rather not pay them anything. If you email me telling me you will checkout with a credit card using my website I'll email you a coupon code to get 11% off your order.
New Glow in the Dark keytags are in! Order a 405nm laser to get a free HighTechDealZ GITD keychain in your order :)
(tip: to stop the scrolling on this news section and watch this video press play on it then click somewhere not on the browser window and the scrolling will pause)
I got in a small amount of GITD caps as well so I'll start including those in the 405nm orders as well. One per total order as usual. Hopefully China will get their act together and ship me the 2000 GITD caps I ordered.. but we'll see. Link to GGWH20L
Have a great weekend!
News: Update 2-20-2010: Expect around 1 week till more GGWH20L in stock.
FYI: I'm out of the GITD dust cap / tail covers right now. My brother has some so the 405nm orders that he ships will have them but the ones I ship will not. I already ordered a lot more but DX is extremely slow, as we all know.
I now have for sale LPC 815 sleds which contain a Long Open Can laser diode of 650nm, good for up to around 300mW of power.
News: Update 1-7-2010:
I hope everyone is having a good first week of this new year in 2010. UT and Alabama play tonight which should be a good game. I'm going for Texas myself because of them being in the Big 12.
News: Update 12-25-2009:
Merry Christmas everyone!
Please expect for shipping time delays due to the millions of packages that are traveling through the postal system. Also everyone should expect the USPS website to not update anything while your package is traveling to you through the mail. I drop most all packages off in the drop off bin at the post office so a lot of times they don't scan it until its about to be delivered to your address.
I hope everyone is having a nice winter. It's very cold down in Texas and actually snowed (which is very rare). I'm anticipating getting in a shipment of more batteries sometime next week and will put them up for sale when they come in. The 18650, 3000mAh batteries have PCB protection this time and will cost slightly more. I figured out the previous ones say they have protection but didn't have a PCB. I'm also getting an order of GGW-H20L 6x blu rays which will be here in about 1 week. I'll put them up for sale when they're in as well.
News: Update 8-3-2009:
I will be out of town for a few days and will be shipping everything out on either Saturday or Monday. Any domestic orders made on or before Thursday will be shipped faster with upgraded shipping at no extra charge.
I decided to reduce my price on LPC815 sleds, check them out. They contain great Long Open Can 650nm diodes that can be pushed to around 300mW.
Have a grrrreat day!
I am also now selling Tritium key rings which have a 10 year natural glow without needing anything to make them glow. Also fluoresce a bit under 405nm blu ray light :) Check them out.
News: Update 7-5-2009: I will be going on a family vacation over the 4th of July holiday, will return 7/9/2009 and will ship out all orders then. I should have the Rkcstr drivers in stock by then as well so I'll start selling those once they get to me. Thanks, Kendall
Also, I am currently sold out of Rkcstr drivers and Rkcstr isn't making them anymore... Until I find a suitable substitute I won't be selling any Aixiz Rkcstr lasers modules.
News: Update 6-15-2009: From 6/15 to 6/22 is my week off from work at my real job and I will be going on vacation for the week. All orders up till now (6/15/2009 noon central) have been shipped and I will not be shipping orders until I get back on 6/22. Sorry for the delay. Thanks, Kendall.
I am currently sold out of Rkcstr drivers and Rkcstr isn't making them anymore... Until I find a suitable substitute I won't be selling any Aixiz Rkcstr lasers modules.
News: Update 5-22-2009:
I'm back in town and working on orders, will be shipping out orders tonight and in the morning. I got in more Aixiz modules as well so they are back in stock. This is Memorial Day weekend and I am having a 10% off All LASER Items Sale through Monday at midnight.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
Also, I only have 4 more Rkcstr microdriver laser drivers. Expect all Rkcstr modules to be sold out very soon, Rkcstr seemed to not have a clue when he'll get more in as he's getting the drivers manufactured now so that takes a long time.
News: Update 5-16-2009:
I've shipped out all the orders I could last night and now will be out of town again to go to a graduation. I will be back in town on 5-22-2009 and will ship orders then. Also, I contacted Aixiz about a 2 week delayed order from them to me and just learned that they are out of stock of the Aixiz modules and expect to have more in next week. I have about 30 or so of the Aixiz modules left and will be filling orders based on first come first served basis and when I run out will be substituting the Sure Electronics modules instead of the Aixiz for your orders. If this poses a problem please let me know.
I will be out of town from 5/10/2009 till 5/14/2009 on a business trip. All orders not yet shipped will be shipped out the night of 5/14/2009, for orders placed before 5/11 I will be shipping via upgraded shipping (USPS Priority Mail (2-3 day)).
in from China. The batteries seem very nice and work great with the Dorcy Jr 45 Lumens 1 Watt - LED Flashlight - Laser Host. I've also decided to get my finances in order and have hired a CPA to help me with figuring out paying taxes on my income. I am required by law to charge 8.25% on in-state Texas orders and have implemented a system to do so. I don't really like charging Texas customers extra though so if you send me a message I'll create a special discount coupon to negate this extra tax charge, so you don't have to pay the extra tax and instead I'll pay it for you :)
Thanks and have a great weekend!
News: Update 4-21-2009:
I got in some GGWH20L sleds and am now selling them in a new Sleds category along with PHR803T sleds. I reduced my 405nm GGW-H20L 6x Blu Ray Diode in Aixiz Module Optics Housing price some as well due to getting in more of the diodes. Also I will be including 1 Glow In The Dark tail cap (dust cover) with each 405nm laser order. They fit on the front of the module over the focusing knob and can help keep dust from collecting on your lens. Also has a neat flashlight effect when the 405nm laser is turned on with the tail cap still on :). See pictures below.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
News: Update 4-17-2009:
I just got back from my business trip and am working on filling orders now, will be shipping tomorrow morning.
I also made another order for more GGW-H20L 6x Blu Ray Lasers and that should be coming in soon. Once it does get to me I'm going to start selling complete unharvested sleds as well :) This will include PHR803T and LPC815 sleds as well as the GGWH20L.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
News: Update 4-1-2009:
FYI: I'll be out of town till 4-16-2009 and won't be able to ship out anything till then. I will have limited access to Internet as well. Thanks, Kendall.
News: Update 2-23-2009:
Nearly Spring Break everyone! I hope you all have a great time a remain safe. If anyone is going to the beach or the mountains, don't forget your laser ;) Less light pollution in the sky makes an ideal environment for seeing the beam go as far as you can see.
A lot of people have been asking me about the GGWH20L 6X Blu Ray Laser Diodes, I don't have any and neither does anyone in China or the USA.. I think word got out that they can do 200mW+ of 405nm light and all the refurbished and returned Blu Ray burner sleds were bought up. It will take time (my guess is 2 weeks) before anyone has any back in stock.
Also, Daguin has been experimenting with an 8X Blu Ray and got some CRAZY results. These sleds won't be available for probably 3-6 months, but I can't wait :)
News: Update 2-14-2009:
I got nice batch of the 405nm GGW-H20L 6x Blu Ray Lasers in and put up what I have for sale last night. It seems nearly everything sold within like 4 hours of me putting it for sale. To try and slow it down some I raised the price but it will still be the same price with 10% off coupon code "HTDTENPERCENT", so just use that if you are lucky enough to buy one before they sell out.
News: Update 2-14-2009:
Happy Valentine's Day everyone, have a good time with your significant other tonight. Also, President's Day is on Monday 2-16-2009 and US Post Offices will be closed :/, but I have good news! I'm going to have another 10% off sale on all LASER items until the end of President's Day (Monday @ midnight). Enjoy the discount and have a great 3 day weekend!
More 405nm PHR-803T Blu Ray Laser Diodes came in today so those are back in stock :) I also restocked my Aixiz Rkcstr Blu-Ray 405nm 120mA Laser Modules as I just got in more Rkcstr drivers from Rkcstr as well :) A limited supply of GGW-H20L 6x Blu Ray Laser Diodes just came in also and I'll start to sell those just as soon as I take pictures of them and test one to post up results. I will only sell these 6x diodes already pressed into an Aixiz module as I'll be briefly testing each diode.
News: Update 2-10-2009:
I'm current sold out of PHR803T 405nm blu ray diodes but have many more being shipped to me as you're reading this. I expect the shipment to be to me in a couple days. More Sure Electronics modules are on their way from China as well.
I just reduced all my laser prices.
An order of more 10440 3.6V batteries came in today and they are for sale in the Flashlight section again now. I had ordered battery chargers at the same time but apparently those were not shipped with the batteries. An order of MXDL flashlights also recently was shipped so I should receive those within a week or so.
Thank you for your business, I work hard to fulfill all of your orders within 1 business day as I think it is important for you to receive your order in a timely fashion.
News: Update 1-27-2009:
I have a week off this week from my real job and am feeling pretty good. My website hit counter just went over 100,000 visitors as well! Because of this I decided to put a 9% off on everything sale going on till I have to start work again (Monday 2-2-2009). Discount coupons will work to stack on this sale % and make my items even cheaper . I'm also changing my "motto" or whatever it is from "High Tech Devices for Less than Retail!" to "Simplifying the LASER Hobby!". I think this makes much more sense because most of my items aren't available for retail sale.
News: Update 1-19-2009:
Happy MLK Day everyone!! I'm finally all caught up on shipping orders and moved into my new location of Arlington, TX. This is an advantage to everyone I think as I'm more central in the USA now so shipping times should be less. I really appreciate the article written on I-Hacked.com featuring details on how to build a Dorcy Blu Ray Laser using the PHR803T laser diode. The Dorcy Jr Flashlight is one of my favorite flashlights to build lasers out of because of its small size and feel.
News: Update 1-2-2009:
Happy New Year everyone! Thank you for your business throughout this holiday season. I am very backed up on orders and in the process of moving to Arlington, TX to start my full time job. I will be attempting to finish everyone's orders this weekend and should have everything shipped on Monday (1-5-2009). Sorry for any inconvenience this of the delay.
is now active for 12 days only! Sale ends New Years Day (January 1, 2009). I hope everyone has a good time with their families for the holidays.
I just got a message from Rkcstr that he finished making me some drivers so I will begin selling the Aixiz Rkcstr laser modules once the drivers come in. Also, I will be traveling to see my family from Dec. 23rd-29th, so no orders will be shipping during this time. I will try to ship everything on Dec. 29th or 30th, depending on the amount of work I need to do.
News: Update 12-01-2008: I hope everyone had a nice break. I have been working hard on school work and may have to continue to work on school projects until Tuesday at about noon. I'm going to try to get all these Thanksgiving orders shipped out on Monday, but may not have enough time until Tuesday. Quality of my products is very important to me and it takes me a lot of time to fill orders; I prefer this over rushing the process of preparing, harvesting, and packaging all the items. I'll post up some results of my project when I finish (today or tomorrow), I think people will like what my group has done. More details to come soon...
Apparently PayPal has been giving some of my customers problems, but not for others. I'm pretty sure the problem lies on PayPal's end... Because of this problem, I added another payment module in the 1st checkout option (regular PayPal, not express). If you experience problems with the 3rd checkout option (PayPal express checkout), try the 1st one and it should work.
News: Update 11-21-2008: I hope everyone has a nice weekend. Just a heads up, I'll be having a Thanksgiving sale on Wednesday and Thursday, followed by a Black Friday Sale. These will be my largest discounts of the year, especially the BF sale :)
Also, If you order now or before these sales, you can email me once the sale is active and tell me that you want the sale discount and I'll refund the difference on your order. This way you can get your items sooner and still get a great deal!
News: Update 11-14-2008 I'm feeling good this weekend and decided to have a special on 650nm 20x DVD Burner Laser Diodes that will last this weekend only. Enjoy! and Thank you everyone for your continued business and support.
News: Update 11-11-2008 To everyone who has served in the armed forces, Happy Veterans Day. The post office is closed today and all orders up till now will be shipped out on Wednesday morning. Have a nice day!
I also just built a prototype laser of my own creation. I've been making so many of these 9V battery lasers and with a simple switch circuit you can have a functioning laser. I built it in a project box from Radioshack.
Update 10-15-2008 I have some bags / luggage that I woud like to sell, see pics here. I'm currently sold out of Sure Electronics modules and have more on the way from China. I just finished assembling a couple of Rkcstr drivers and hopefully I'll be able to catch up on product inventory for the Aixiz Rkcstr Blu Ray Laser Modules. I modified my site to not allow backorders as I have enough orders right now and need to focus on filling them before taking on more. Thank you for your support.
Update 10-7-2008: I got in some Rkcstr drivers and can now sell a few Aixiz Rckstr Blu Ray Laser Modules.
Update 10-4-2008: SSL encryption is now active at https://hightechdealz.com. This will protect your user name and password on the log in screen so others on the same wireless internet can't see what you're typing. This is really only an issue on public wifi but I think have the protection is good for my customers.
New Webhost! I can tell from the ftp server that this host is a lot better. I'm still having some problems getting everything back in line, but I'm pretty close. Google Checkout and PayPal work now.
Old News: Update 9-23-2008:
I have noticed this website to be slow at times. I think this is due to the increased traffic on the website. I just purchased new hosting and will also have an SSL certificate set up to protect your information. This will be a secure https website for your protection from others. I am working with my domain host to get the new web host going and will be working on this for a while. The website may go down as I'm transferring the website to the new host.
It seems the Blu Ray modules with a Rkcstr driver are very popular and sold out as soon as I got more drivers in stock... which means I am out of stock of Rkcstr drivers again. I'll begin to sell those again once Rkcstr starts to sell more drivers. Also, from now until December, I will only be shipping items 3 times per week. Monday, Wednesday and Friday will be the days that I send out orders. I am taking full time classes and can only go on these days to the Post Office. Thank you all for your support and business.
