Default M140 diode @~1W Eating Matches

First LASER related post, I hope I am not breaking any rules with this, If so let me know I'll be glad to fix it.

I got this diode from DTR's shop and after putting it in a generic copper modal and getting a nice G2 Lens, I ran it on my lab bench power supply (those fancy drivers are too pricey for now) at 1W and had some fun. The last LASER I was lighting matches with was my first diode LASER which is the DVD Write diode that I got out of a recycling can at school. It took some focusing to make the matches light easily, but it could also pop dark balloons from about 5 feet. (I need some balloons for the M140 diode) At under half power this new diode is really fun, and addicting, now I want even more.

Here is some video I shot of it.

If the embedded video fails here is the link.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBZCjkYx7Rw (this is where I hope I am not breaking any rules)

That is all for now.

Welcome and be safe. Nice m140 you've got there. Just a warning though, you keep feeding that m140 it just might grow up to be a ndg7875 or a nubm44 so you might want to keep that m140 on a diet.

Have fun and enjoy, looking forward to your next post/video/pictures.

Default Re: M140 diode @~1W Eating Matches

Thanks, fortunately for me, I need not worry about buying tons of diodes, as I cannot afford many. I am currently out on the search for a Phlatlight, as the LED die on those things is a work of art. (so there goes the diode fund.)

I've got two Phlatlights if you are interested in one, both are on heatsink with optics attached. They seem orange to me.. hope im not going color blind!

/e Also good job on the M140; if you are looking for a cheap easy way to put into a handheld visit http://survivallaserusa.com and get the No-Diode host bundle.

Default Re: M140 diode @~1W Eating Matches

what sort of phlatlights? I am interested in the PT 120 ones as they are the best I could find out about. I also just ordered an (I think around 8W) orange one from DTR as it was pretty cheap and already had a heatsink. (I never thought I would run out of PC heatsinks, but then I discovered cheap 100W LEDs...)
