Default My first Dorcy Metal Gear DIY Laser is a success!

I figured I'd mess up the first attempt due to the fact that I'm terrible at soldering but to my supprise it turned out great. 8-) It easily (and quickly) pops balloons from 25+ feet away , and the beam is clearly visible at night. Thanks to Senkat for the parts and the flashlight!

Thanks! And also a big thanks to you Kenom for all your tutorials!

Any guesstimates on how many mw this metal gear is putting out with a 2.7 ohm resistor in-line and with the OEM resistor still in place on the dorcy driver? Anybody have a similar metal gear they've tested?

Also, would it be safe to switch the 3 AAAs for 2 CR123s with the current set up? Or would I need to put another resistor in place of the 2.7 ohm ?

you would need another resistor.
