I'm sure we all want to know what the RMR Laser Stik actually is and contains. I don't mind throwing a few bucks around to keep this stuff out of hands of people who might actually believe it works plus its fun to drive around with the stuff for a few days and post a review (I feel like I'm doing others a favor). If I was rich I'd buy the rest of those RMR-C450s they keep emailing me about shoot them out of a trap thrower and see how many I could hit. Unfortunately I can't do that but I can try and get the under $10 ones and keep them out of public hands. I've got a nice little collection of their wares here on the shelf that I've snagged off ebay, my goal was to get one of every model (though the newer ones are a tad expensive yet, when they fall in the $5 range I might be interested). If I get enough together maybe I'll make fun videos of stupid things to do with them.
That said the latest thing I came across was an RMR Laser Stik. You can buy one of these on their website for a mere $20 and less than half that if you do some looking around. Who needs a Blinder or LI when you can get this. The RMR consumer must be wondering why people spend so much for a Blinder or LI. There is a simple reason. This thing will be highly unlikely to do anything. Well it actually might do something, waste your hard earned money.
The unit itself is a tiny "jammer head" with a headphone style prong sticking out of it. You can connect this to the RMR remote unit or as it instructs bare the end wires and connect to 12V, red to positive, black to negative (well duh!). Inside the case are 6 LEDs for your "jamming", a circuit board, some surface mounted resistors, a green power LED and surprisingly a clock crystal. That would mean that the device is not just a few LEDs strung together in a case as I had suspected in an effort to blind a laser gun through output (which may have worked only on first generation guns). With the clock crystal it probably is pulsed at some rate. If it weren't so darn cold outside I'd see if it sets off the V1.
If it is pulsed (I see no other reason for a crystal), I'd assume it techically could jam something under the right circumstances (possibly an older gun) except for one problem. 6 LEDs isn't going to be enough to do it. Seeing as that you're supposed to use one of these in the front and one in the rear according to the literature (why is it then that other jammers need a minimum of two heads?) it wouldn't be powerful enough. You may get somewhere with 3 or 4 of them in the front, against a select group of probably older guns on a not so reflective car.
Again I planned on messing around with it, but the temperature outside is rather cold so I'm going to have to postpone this for now.
If anyone in the Buffalo region has any Laser guns and wants to mess around with it let me know (plus I wouldn't mind testing the Blinder M-06s as I'm sure some people want to know if they're still effective at all). If the temp warms up later in the week I'll try powering it up and aiming it at the V1. If anyone wants to test run though I'll probably have to wait until the spring. I don't really feel like trying to install ineffective stuff in the winter.
