Default WTB, Have cash, or paypal

I am looking to buy a Green laser and a blue laser. I am fairly new withen the laser sceen, So I hope that some of you might help me out.

What I want is something that I will not have to fix any time soon, or if I do, I can ship it back to the seller to fix ( Ill eat the cost of parts )

I want a laser that can burn good, light matches, cut thur credit cards, ect and can be seen for miles.

Also want a blue one, because its just freaking cool looking and no one has one.

I have around 500 US. Tho i hope the seller can explain to me in basic, dumb down terms, the reason one 200 mW laser is the same price as a 400 mW laser. because I really have no clue. It kinda confuses me why some sites price their lasers at 1800 US and others at the same mW for 400.

Thank you for taking the time to read all of this, and hope to do business with you soon =)

Well if you are new to lasers for your own sake read up heavily on safety precautions and always have goggles on before you even pick up a laser.

to the Forum....

Like was already mentioned... a lot of your questions have already
been answered on the Forum Threads/Posts...

Read the Reviews sections on the type of laser that you are looking
for... Recently there were quite a few Reviews on those high priced
Lasers you speak of...

Normally... Low priced High Power indicated Lasers will NOT meet the
specs advertised....
Remember... <400mW means... LESS THAN 400mW...


Don't forget to read the Newcomers section and the Forum Rules...
Enjoy your stay....

Hi, and welcome to the forum

As laserbee said a lot of your questions can be answered quite simply by reading a little, you'll pick up a lot! But I'll try my best to answer your questions.

Well, a green laser of any power 50mW+ will be able to able to be seen a long way away, so there isn't an issue there, and with a resonable power will also be able to burn and smoke things, but I doubt it'll cut through a credit card You need around a watt or two of IR laser to do that

And you also mentioned your interested in a "blue" laser, now technically blue is 473nm (wavelength) and that is a true blue colour, how ever people often mistake this with the cheaper of the two, a violet laser which come from blu-ray players, these are actually 405nm and just on the border of the visible spectrum (390nm.)

Now true blue and green lasers work using a system called DPSS laser, this stands for diode pumped solid state laser. This means that a high powered IR diode is placed behind a set of crystals which basically transform the wavelength to 532nm (green.) This system also applys for true blue lasers. How ever the violet laser I mentioned earlyer runs on a basic diode system, these use the standard 5.6mm diodes you will find in your average DVD burner.

Buying the lasers:

Violet lasers are typically cheaper than the true blue laser pointers, true blue lasers within your price range are only around 1-2mW, which is very low powered and you would only buy one to use with a fog machine to get the full effect of the beam

How ever violet lasers are becoming much more high powered, the current diodes you can buy are:

PHR-803T@90mW
6X@180mW
8X@300-400mW

PHR's are very cheap, 6X a little more expensive (30$) and then 8X which are still experimental are around $150. How ever these lasers burn VERY well and are probabally the best to satisy your burning needs

If you did want to buy a blue laser, I reccomend laserglow as I believe they currently have a reduced price on blue laser pointers:

http://enthusiast.laserglow.com/GAP

For violet lasers I would recomend getting a respected member on the forum to put one together for you. Heres a few builders with very good reputation and customer satisfaction:

IgorT: FS: >110mW PHR, >140mW 4x & >170mW 6x Blu-Rays

Very good builder

and Daguin who you could PM and talk to about getting a laser built.

Both are very good guys and respected on the forum, there are a few others which I've missed but those are two I can think of off the top of my head

Green lasers:

Green lasers are fairly common, if you are look for burning power and an awesom beam then there are several different choices.

www.0-like.com--ҳ

O-like is very respected company on this forum, often deliver overspec lasers and have good customer service, they are great for your cheaper high powered green pointers.

If you want to spend a bit more money then have a look at Optotronics or laserglow.

To answer your question why some lasers cost more than others, this is all to do with quality. You pay for what you get in lasers, the more you pay the better service you get, better duty cycles and more chance of getting an on spec or over spec laser.

Cheaper chinese pointer companys claiming "200mW" will often only be around 70mW and then refuse to refund you.

SAFETY

Very important matter, make sure you get safety goggles, your eyes are worth more than anything

I reccomend these for you:

Laser Glasses - UV to Green Lasers Protection 190-548nm :: Laser Safety :: Dragon Lasers

As they block violet,blue and green beams all in one which are the colours you are interested in, I own a pair of these and they are great

Please do excuse the long post, but everything you need to know is in there

Have a good day!

-Ash

If you want a true blue laser, be prepared to spend all that money on very little power. Unfortunately it's one of the most expensive wavelengths...

Thanks to everyone especially ash for taking the time on a new member.

I came across your forum searching google on yotang ( Not to worry, not going to order from them.. lol ) after doing some research from another members mistake with their dealings with them.

I have read alot of information on these forums, but what i didn't understand is when they started posting things like wavelengths, I know mW, and now I understand what "Host" means. It's just alot to take in.

I figured I would buy off other enthusiasts as it would help them out in what ever other venture they are heading into (paying off school, or a new laser ) and still might grab a good deal at the same time.

I was reading up last night from about midnight till 3 am, and wife forced me back to bed. LOL

Anyways, Thanks for the information. Ill try and use it to make a wise purchase.

If you need any help with Gaming systems, or computers, hit me up. Here are a few videos of what i do.

Dude! That LED arcade panel is gorgous! Is that a Sanwa set-up?

-----

A "host" is basically an empty shell in which a DIY laser maker can build their laser. So, they'll buy the laser diode, buy/build a driver and then they'll house it all inside the host to make a functional lsser...

I mean the buttons and sticks... The sticks look like Sanwa, and the buttons maybe clear Seimitsu? I have a modded HRAP2, I love it!
