Default 5mW greenie help!

I just recieved my first greenie, and am pretty alright about it. Lots of fun in the dark. But when I push the button, it shines but then dims a little, then goes really dim, then after about 5 seconds, goes back to super bright. Any ideas? Thanks big time!

Ebay or DX because the ebay ones and the non true ones from DX peak at 5mw as soon as they are turned on then get dim very quickly, just poor design and cheap lasers. Unfortunately I can only tell you it's normal, then again if it's a DX true the button design is poor, if it's a pen style try shoving some folded paper under the driver where the button goes. This was the pressure of pressing the button does not bend the legs on the diode.

Yeah, eBay. After awhile, I guess it warms up, and it works really good. Probably max output. It also has a foam block under the driver and diode, I guess that would help too. ANd its also a pen style green LasEr,
