If that's a 5 mw than all you can do is a pot mod, found a link here:

It's about a dx laser but I think it'll help a bit.

They're usually pressed in, so you'll need to pull it out with some pillers.

ok guys i have located the pot

But i screwed my optics and everything is out of focus. No idea how to fix. I guess i just have to try.

ASAP Answer: Which way do you turn a pot? (so i can close it for good then fix the optics!)

Theres not way to tell, it depends on how it is hooked up, take some like aligatorclips then clip them onto the spring and one onto the casing itself, then take 2aa batteries and put them in series with the negative going to the spring and positive to the casing, then you can just turn the pot different directions and see which one makes it brighter.

...lazer... ;D ;D ;D

Default Re: How to mod this laser?

Warning: Keep in mind, changing the pot means overdriving the laser. Adjusting the pot is likely to kill your laser right then and there. Even if it doesn't, it'll significantly decrease your laser's life. Don't ever mod anything you aren't 100% comfortable tossing in the trash
