Default 450nm eBay laser

I just made a quick video of a laser I bought on eBay. I have no idea how powerful it is, but I'm pretty happy with it. Also, I'm new, I just made my account today after lurking for a couple of months. I hope it's okay to post a video so soon.

This is the eBay item: Blue Ray 445nm Laser 5mW Flashlight Pointer Torch Visible Beam Cigarette Burn | eBay



Here's an image of the diode.


Here's the optics.

I checked AliExpress and didn't see it for that cheap? I haven't ever seen a laser that burns stuff like this for $20 bucks.

Default Re: 450nm eBay laser

Yeah, absolutely not 5 mW You're probably right, somewhere in the ballpark of 1-1.2W. It's not cost effective for the manufacturers to run the diode at a lower power, so if it's a 1W diode in there, it's likely running 1 watts

Yea i was gonna mention the 5mw factor. That diode would not be able to even get powered that low and still light im sure. Be careful with your new "toy" cause its not a toy!!

Nice video, That thing packs a punch Craig!...Like the host too... it looks as though it will do a good job of dissipating heat with those fins on.

More than likely that's outputting >1W. Not a half bad looking host, either, though I don't care for the size difference between the tailcap and the rest of the body, I think it looks a bit goofy. Either way not bad for 80$.

I'm sure you have read this everywhere, and I was glad you mentioned eye protection in the video, but it can't be stressed enough- be mindful of where the beam is going; you don't want yourself or a bystander to catch a reflection and end up blind. It only takes one flash to cook your eye!
