Ivoclar introduced a redesigned diode laser at the Chicago meeting called the Navigator. It is 3 Watts and completely portable. It has a battery which is charged in a docking cradle and even uses a wireless foot control.
Another new innovation is a unidose disposable tip. This eliminates the need to cleave the fiber after every use. I have been using a diode for seven years and could not practice without it. The biggest hassle has been portability and fiber control. This new product looks like it has eliminated those concerns.
I could not find the Navigator on the Ivoclar web site. Hopefully it will be up soon.
