Have you tried to crack one open to see how much potential there is? Really wonder how far these diodes could be pushed safely.

Probably around 100mw if they're phr diodes or similar. At $9 you should probably just buy one and see.

I ordered 2 as well, one was extremely dim. I'll be sending it back for a replacement as well. I'm pleased with the other though. Seems stable.

Default Re: 5mW 405nM $9 on eBay

Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered the combo deal as well.
I didn't have a 405nm yet so this will be interesting to compare to my others.
I paid almost this much just for my cheap 532nm.
Low power or not, It will be interesting to compare.

Thanks again

Default Re: 5mW 405nM $9 on eBay

Hi, I'm fairly new to lasers, got a <1mW Green handheld and a Red handheld that I assume is <1mW (got it free with the green).
I've been wanting a Blue/Violet laser but am in the UK, but have an american friend who could ship the laser in the OP to me, they dont know jack bout lasers though. Do you recon the laser is likely to be fine (as it wont be able to be checked before arriving in England)? I've read all the posts and not sure whether it'd be OK after what people have been saying about the divergence (not that I'm entirely sure what it means, thinking it's how focused the dot looks when it hits a surface).

Do you recon I should go for it?

imo the divergence isnt to bad at all and its focusable if you want to take it apart, on mine there was a big circle but it was around the dot.
