FOREWORD
First and foremost, we are laser enthusiasts. We desire nothing more than to achieve
perfection in our craft. For us, pushing the limits of technology is part of our daily
routine. It’s only impossible if we don’t try.
As we continue to advance in our search for perfection, we’ve set benchmarks
for others to follow and new limits for us to test. This is our mission. We plan to
continually push the boundaries of technology and create products that challenge
the imagination far into the future.
User’s Manual & Laser Safety Guide | 3
We wanted to create the world’s most powerful handheld laser - we succeeded and
inadvertently set a world record in doing so. We are extremely proud to be included
in the Guinness Book of World Records for 2007. This will serve as a testament to
our commitment to providing the world with the most sophisticated laser products
technology can offer.
Designed and developed by some of the world’s best engineers, the Spyder Series
stands at the pinnacle of laser technology. Lithium powered, water resistant and
ultimately powerful, the Spyder Series is our most advanced line of handheld lasers to
date.
We still have much to prove as there is still a world of possibilities in front of us. Our quest
to turn science fiction into reality has only just begun.

Lens Cleaning Procedure and Troubleshooting
What you need :
1.
2.
3.
!
Microfiber Cloth - Please make sure the
microfiber cloth is specifically designed
for cleaning lenses. You can find this at
your local camera or glasses store.
Q-Tip or Tooth Pick - You will need to
fold the cloth over one of these in order
to be able to reach the lens properly.
Lens Cleaning Solutions (Optional)
- Use the lens cleaning solution only
if the lens is not cleaned using the
microfiber cloth alone. Please make
sure the cleaning solution is designed
specifically for lens cleaning.
WARNING : DO NOT USE WATER
S3 Lunar Series | 14
Procedure :
1.
Wash your hand with soap and water. Make sure to dry them properly.
2.
Remove the batteries from your laser prior to cleaning.
3.
Fold the microfiber cloth over a toothpick or the handle part of a Q-tip. Make sure
you do not touch the part of the cloth that will be cleaning the lens. You probably
will not be able to fold the cloth twice, so you need to be very careful not to press too
hard on the lens.
4.
Gently move the cloth into the aperture until it comes in contact with the lens. Rub
it from side to side but do not press too hard. Gently rotate the cloth in a twisting
motion back and forth. Repeat this procedure until the lens of your laser is clean.
5.
Re-insert the batteries and turn your laser unit on to see if the lens is clean.
6.
Still dirty? Apply only 1 drop of Lens Cleaning Solution to the part of the cloth that
will be cleaning the lens, the follow the same procedure as above. You will want to
finish by using a dry part of the cloth to wipe the lens dry, this should take one pass
side to side or gentle rotate.
Types of Common Lens Problems
1.
Dirty Lens - The most common problem with your laser unit
is a dirty lens. The easiest way to determine whether you
have a dirty lens is to look at the lens under direct light. If
you see smudges, finger prints, or small particles on the lens,
the beam emitted will look similar to the above pictures.
Simply follow the cleaning instructions to restore the spot
back to a focused dot.
2.
Scratched Lens - A scratched lens may occur if you
accidentally scratch the lens with a hard or rough surface.
The lens of your laser unit is similar to that of a camera,
please handle with care. This condition can be repaired
by Wicked Lasers, however, will not be covered in your
warranty. A repair cost will apply.

Types of Common Lens Problems
3.
Mode Shifts - A mode shift may occur under extreme temperatures. If your laser unit is too hot or too cold, the beam may appear
unstable and look similar to the above pictures. Please note that as your laser “warms up” and returns to room temperature, the beam
will return to normal mode, TEM00. The normal operating temperature of all Wicked Laser products is 10ºC ~ 40ºC. Using your laser unit
beyond these parameters will damage your laser beyond repair.
S3 Lunar Series | 16
Types of Common Lens Problems
4.
Moisture - We do not recommend using any laser products
in highly humid or foggy conditions. If your laser unit is used
in these conditions and/or submerged in water, the beam
may appear similar to the above picture. You will not be able
to clean this as water has condensed inside the lens and/or
crystal set. This condition can be repaired by Wicked Lasers,
however, will not be covered in your warranty. A repair cost
will apply.
*This condition may occur if you are using the laser unit
with wet hands. Please dry your hands completely before
handling your laser unit.

Class 4 Laser Safety Instructions
DANGER CLASS 4 LASER : All visible lasers with beams over 500 milliwatts (1/2 watt) are classified as Class 4.
EXTREME DANGER, MUST BE USED CAREFULLY
DO NOT USE AS A LASER POINTER.
● DO NOT USE AS A TOY.
● ONLY FOR USE BY PERSONS UNDERSTANDING THE HAZARDS OF THIS LASER.
● READ ALL WARNINGS ON THIS PAGE.
●
●
DO NOT SHINE DIRECT
BEAM IN EYE-BLINDNESS
HAZARD!
The direct beam at close distance can cause instant blindness. The direct beam up to
250m/750ft can cause eye
damage. Never aim any laser
towards a personʼs head, or
where a person may suddenly
appear. Never aim towards a
pet or other animal.
S3 Lunar Series | 18
DO NOT GET REFLECTED
BEAM IN EYE
The beam reflection can cause
instant eye damage, especially
at close range. There are MANY
shiny or smooth objects that can
reflect a laser beam. ALWAYS
be aware of both the main
beam AND its reflection(s). Be
especially careful when aiming
out of windows due to danger
from the “back reflection”.
Class 4 Laser Safety Instructions
AVOID EXPOSURE TO BLUE LIGHT
Blue laser light can cause photochemical eye damage. Avoid
prolonged exposure to blue light (light from 530nm green to 380
ultraviolet can be hazardous, with the peak danger at 440nm blue).
There is a hazard even from prolonged exposure to diffused “room
glow” from the beam reflecting off walls or other surfaces. Use safety
glasses that block blue light.
WEAR SAFETY GLASSES
If available, wear laser safety glasses or goggles. They MUST be
appropriate for your laserʼs power and wavelength, so the laser
beamʼs power is safely reduced. However, DO NOT RELY ON THE
SAFETY GLASSES ALONE. Continue to avoid direct and reflected
exposure to the beam.
User’s Manual & Laser Safety Guide | 19
WWW.WICKEDLASERS.COM
Class 4 Laser Safety Instructions
DO NOT LOOK OR STARE
AT DIFFUSED REFLECTIONS
Looking at the laser “dot” can cause
eye damage. Danger is higher when on
white surfaces and at close range. DO
NOT USE THIS AS A LASER POINTER.
DO NOT SHINE BEAM ON SKIN BURN HAZARD
The direct or reflected beam can burn
exposed skin. Wear protective, lightcolored clothing. Do not aim beam
at your skin, skin of other persons, or
animals.
S3 Lunar Series | 20
DO NOT BURN OR DAMAGE MATERIALS
The beam can char, burn or ignite materials.
Especially avoid dark, thin, and combustible
materials such as fabrics.
DO NOT AIM AT AIRCRAFT OR STARS
The bright light from this laser can flash blind
or distract a pilot. NEVER AIM ANY LASER
TOWARDS AN AIRPLANE OR HELICOPTER.
Always be careful any time the beam goes into
the sky. Since far-away aircraft can look like
stars, DO NOT USE FOR STAR POINTING. Only
use Class 2 or Class 3 lasers for astronomy star
pointing purposes.
Class 4 Laser Safety Instructions
OTHER IMPORTANT SAFETY AND USE CAUTIONS:
DO NOT USE AS A LASER POINTER. This Class 4 laser is too bright to be safely used for laser pointing purposes.
NOT FOR CHILDREN OR UNAWARE PERSONS. The user must be mature, and must be aware of the direct and reflected beam hazards to eyes,
skin, materials and aircraft.
DO NOT USE ILLEGALLY. Many countries and jurisdictions have laws regarding laser usage. Follow all local laws.
DO NOT AIM AT VEHICLES. Do not distract the driver of a car or truck, or a person operating heavy or dangerous machinery.
DO NOT AIM AT POLICE OR LAW ENFORCEMENT. The beam can be mistaken for a weapon, or for a laser gunsight. People aiming lasers at
police and soldiers have been killed.
DO NOT HARASS OR ANNOY OTHERS. Do not aim the laser at athletes, performers, movie screens, or any person. Nor should they be brought
to or used at sporting events, concerts, shows, public gatherings or any other event where the beam could be distracting to others.
