somehow I knew it was gonna be that video!

and flashback, building a laser isn't too hard. All it takes are the right parts and a little patience. Those little keychain flashlights don't even have pots (unless i'm mistaken. They might have them, but too small maybe) that you can turn up to make the laser put out more power.

Try checking out the tutorials in the Tutorials and help forum. That's the real place you should be, not this Experiments forum.

Overall, please don't trust any of these stupid youtube videos that say you that is possible to turn a 5mW pionter in a 50/100 mw pointer ..... LOL !

Uhm, ok, ok, maybe the one posted from jamilm9 is the only true one, LOL

Maybe at the first times, there was some of them that for market stock problems was using overrated diodes and can be turned in something few more powerful, but actually, with all the availability of diodes and crystals that actually they have, if a module say 50 mW, probably is already working at 90% of his maximum power, or similar

IT sits there and holds the diode, and allows the lens to screw into something. Do your homework and look around, search before you post!

If you are uncomfortable with building a laser yourself you can also buy this: http://www.o-like.com/b2b_cpinfo.asp?id=926
One of the most well known lasers on this forum as it is really cheap and actually very good (and shaped like a... well, we named it the "Dilda"). It also comes with both batteries and a charger and is from a company with brilliant customer support.

Don't be an idiot - protect yourself with proper goggles and never point a laser at living things or vehicles, especially aircraft.

i agree with jaseth. i own one and it is awsome. and once you get it take it apart and really take a look at all the parts. this will familiarize you with what it takes to do your own.
