Chances are it's already operating at its maximum output. If you try and push it any further it'll most likely just shorten the working lifespan of the diode.

Don't pot mod, unless you're tuning it down. Or like Liberty said, for a short minute of entertainment. You'd probably spend more money having to keep buying and modding 5mWs than you would buying a high powered laser that would last forever. Bottom line: DON'T POT MOD. Save your money and buy a 50mW.

Tuning implys changing frequency as in tuning between radio stations. Power is not tuned -- only frequency ie wavelength. You can't tune a green to another color.

if he wants a burning pointer idk if a 50mW is really whats best, i mean mine is bright as hell but i cant get it to burn anything. your better off getting a dilda or a factory pot mod green flashlight style from DX

I didn't say it would. I just said that because 50mW is about the most power you'll get out of a pot mod. Get at least the Alpha 100 or X100 for burning.
