Default interest guage....

I want to know what the interest level is for IR lasers, specifically 808nm. *I have the unique opportunity to purchase some colliminated, portable 808nm handhelds in the 500mw power range, for right at $500.00. *They come with a 6 month warranty, all the safety features that are FDA required and take "C" cell batteries. *These lasers are manufactured by CNI.....Picture posted below...

Is this the same as the "Hades" series from laserglow?

No - the wavelength is different - that is the only difference I can see, myself. Theirs is 1064, this one is 808nm.

are you doing a group buy on these or something? or do you just want other people's input before you buy one?

Not really a group buy - but I can get just about any quantity on these, so if someone is interested, and can buy one, I will order them all at the same time.

Do you suppose both frequencies are totally invisible?.. or is there alittle color with any... I would guess the lower freq would be easier for our eye to catch some harmonics or something.. but I don't know.

I am pretty sure both are invisible.

Yes - both are invisible - although if you watched my vid entitled, "Dangerous Demo" it shows a TINY red flourescence (spelling ?) on the targeted item...in that particular case, a match. So - you MAY be able to barely see a faint red glow on the target, but I cannot say for sure until I see one in action !

SenKAt --
You can buy a 500 mW 808nm for about $20 on flebay. They are mostly invisable but will burn stuff.
My "little yag: should be here tomorrow
Have goggles - will Lase !!!!

I think total invisibility would be a bit unnerving and freaky.. but if I could see it just a little bit.. I could be interested....

It kinda opens up a whole new world of practicle joking when the beam is invisible!

To my eyes, 808nm is visible as a deep red. Not visible at all when unconcentrated, so when it diverges it becomes invisible, but in a concentrated dot some of the high power ones easily beat those 1mW red pointers.

This is NOT the Hades though. The Hades is a DPSS laser with good beam specs that match the Aries. These 808nms are based on bare diodes, and have horrible beam specs. I don't remember the specs on these off the top of my head but I believe it was in the order of 6mm at aperture and <5mRad divergence. That said, they make interesting burning lasers, and I have some pen size 350-400mW ones that make great portable burning lasers.

Also, if anyones interested, I can probably get these for a lower price than $500. I don't want to be competing with SenKat or anything as he's a great guy, so I'm not posting this as a general offer or anything, but feel free to e-mail me if you want to discuss this. These lasers also come in up to 700mW version BTW.

Well, you are NOT competing ! That is great news if you can get them cheaper !!! Can you post the price, or is it PM only ?? Either way is fine by me !!! 8-) Thanks, man - you come through AGAIN !

In the short time I"ve known Senkat.. I estimate he just likes to do his best to propagate laser fun!

I too would want to share the find if I could take advantage of a great deal.... but if there are better deals, lets make them availiable!

700mw...... HUMM!... can it cook my breakfast in 20 seconds?
