Default Tech Lasers Infiniti 55

This laser was sent to me by Ben74 for testing .


Going to start with the power test first. At first this laser only peaked 42mW, but then I fired in a fresh set of batteries and it shot up to 68mW peak ! After it reached this it sat there for 10 or 15 seconds then gradually dropped off to 63mW where it stayed. I reckon this laser would do even better if it were using Energizer Lithium's instead of the cheap batteries I used



Now , Overall I really like this laser, it has a very nice build quality and feels nice in your hand, It also feels and looks sleek. It uses 2x AAA batteries which are nice and cheap

Another great feature that I like is the super thin beam at the aperture, although divergence isn't great ( will show comparison pictures later ). You can also add a keyswitch or a beam expander to this laser, these accessories are sold from NOVAlasers and Dragon Lasers. The laser also comes in a nice case with " Tech lasers " printed on the top.

One problem I have found is that the laser gets hot after some use, due to very little in the way of heatsinking. But this doesn't really effect the output much. Best to limit this laser to a duty cycle of 1 minute on and 30 seconds off.

Overall this is a really nice laser, and I would certainly get one for myself.

Summary :

Pros :

Very nice build quality.
Exceeds spec at 63mW average and 68mW peak
Thin beam
Very sleek looking

Cons:

Divergence isn't great.
Heats up quickly, no heatsinking



Now for some beamshots !




Top : 5mW LEDshoppe 7mW
Second top : Infiniti 55 63mW
Third top : Romisen L-C030 25mW
4th top : Aixiz 635 10mW
Bottom : Aixiz 650 5mW

All with smoke



Dot comparison : Left Romisen L-C030 @ 25mW , Right : Tech lasers Infiniti 55 @ 63mW .

Smoke used



Beamshot without smoke.




Oh and a size comparison ! Bottom is Infiniti 55 top is LEDshoppe 5mW .



Hope you all enjoyed my review, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Regards,

Adam

I plan on getting some Energizer lithium's to test this with before I send it back. I also have some NiMHs and will test with them.

Yeah it was 42 peak with the batts you sent. Then it went to like 68 with the batts I used, then later on when it was warmer it went to 78

Tech used to sell CNI but I believe they changed the source a couple of years back. I am glad you got a decent Tech lasers pen, but I would recommend CNI pens. Nova Lasers sells them, but I am getting some from CNI directly, (better than Tech prices), and the ($105 GB priced) 50 mW rated units will be about as powerful as these Tech 55 mW units when the Tech's are the "good" ones. The next rated powers of 75 mW and 100 mW and the highest rated 150 mW units are all over power ratings by approx 50 mW, so, I would rather not take a chance with Tech Lasers, that's just my own oppinion. -Glenn

Well it was actually bought as a 20mW pen, but the beam spec are horrible.

the only thing that I could see wrong with the beam specs was the divergence ! which WAS horrible. Other than that, beam diameter at aperture was TINY, dot was perfect TEM00 , wasn't coming out at much of an angle either.
