    For those looking for the Unicorn of jammers, don't stop your search.

    I found this one and took it in a heartbeat.

    It's easy to write a review on this:

    Pros:
    The best there is.

    Cons:
    Hard as hell to find.

    Rating: 10 out of 5 stars ;)

    Here is a thorough article done on this Laser Jammer. There's even an early vid of it jamming the cheesy Scottie Peterson gun hahaha - https://www.rdforum.org/content/lidatek-llc-and-the-le-10/

    Was it from eBay? I was looking at one for 370€ but wasn't sure if it was worth it.

    There were several reasons that the LE10 has stopped to be sold:
    Blinder came in 2000 with his product M10
    Blinder current product is built in similar method - LOOKUP TABLE to identify the frequency, and give it the right answer, incidentally the Blinder not presented in
    Of LTI / riegl LIDAR
    jam Codes
    In addition, the low sensitivity and many false alerts- Since there was no filtering, and limiting the operating time for a few seconds.
    The big problem arose about the year 2003 when the units stopped working after a short time - the reason was - the diode was burned after a number of uses - a problem they have not solved..

    Interesting. No issues with this really old version (1997).

    Awesome sensitivity and the diode is still eye-burning rich.

    I wonder if they still make the diode, just in case it burns out you might be able to replace it. Dunno.

    I had an LE-20 and LE-30 which were not nearly as powerful as the LE-10, but apparently used the look-up table. Again, dunno about that for sure.

    pwrpuma would tell you where he got his LE-10, but then he'd have to kill ya. I asked about where to get one over at rd.net a few years ago and got an infraction. True story.


    Cheers.

    Haha, I'MMA CHARGIN' MA LAZ0RZ!

    That unit is hardcore.

    Imagine the power of that unit with the modern false filtering/non jam coding pulsing...
    Hints at LI/AL..

    What was the power output and beam divergence? Was it FDA approved?

    The LE 10 is indeed the Holy Grail. Nothing has ever done BF jamming better........

    i look at at it like the STIR-O , if you ever get a chance to pick up a decent unit, you'd better jump all over it!

    I just found this, and it made me LOL: http://www.radardetector.net/forums...17-lidatek-llc-le-10-history-facts-myths.html

    Quick specs for those who can't be bothered to click the link:
    Beam was roughly rectangle, and it was probably 50 feet high and 100 feet wide at 1000 feet. No joke.
    Spec output power was 14mw at 904nm, diode was actually rated for 35mw at 905nm.
    You could feel the heat from the diode at several inches away.
    Not FDA approved (nothing submitted for approval)
    Stickered for Class IIIb (!)
    No special pulse rates, just brute force jamming - throws jam codes on any and all guns.

    The idea is to blind all law enforcement in your area before the diode goes bad.

    And to be clear its infrared radiation that causes heat not the jammer head heating up.

    Yes exactly - that link has some very interesting info, such as the fact that it was limited to 5 seconds on and 60 seconds off, and it had a temp sensor as well that would prevent it from firing if it was too hot. The pulse rate was 2 Mhz.

    Laakman died a few years after creating the LE series, but boy did he make inroads in the business!
