Are these lenses still available? I have a 6x laser that I might want to use it with, but I'm not sure if I should wait for IgorT's group buy.

I'm still waiting for Igor's GB for sure!

I need to compare his best lens with this one...

That's the only way to find out what the comparison is. 'Side by side'!

So please don't let the lure of this lens take you away from Igor's up coming GB, but yes, these are available...

Jay we can safely have an output of 384mw with the SF-AW210? The power is amazing...

EDIT:I saw that we cant pity though i would love to have a Blu-mini that burns everything lol

Btw my mini even burns my walls now and it seems to burn things a lot further than it used too.It might be around 150mw now xD

Glad you like the 405-G-1 glass lens modification!

Right now, there are mixed results with the SF-AW210 diode...

Some are getting high power ones like the one that I got. From what I have read, most are still getting the lower powered ones.

I would think that the Nichia diode is a good candidate. According to testing that Igor did, it is very close to the 6X. But he did not complete the testing. And this is only one sample. See here:
http://www.laserpointerforums.com/fo...867955/120#132

These diodes can be purchased one at a time now. I asked Susie about it just a couple of days ago:

Default Re: FS: 405-G-1 Glass Lens Mod-28% Increase vs Aix

Hi Jay,

I also got mine today *
The last time you sent me something it took five business days; this time it took seven days to get to me, but our Customs office had it in their hands 4 days after you mailed it... * *8-)

Unfortunately it will be a while before I can do a side-by-side with BRs as I'm still waiting on my second 6x... *cough*IIIGOOOR!!!*cough* but I played around with my two hi-powered reds and boy, did I note a difference! I pitted my DaGuin DJR 250mW LCC against my LikeitBright RomiRed 280mW LOC, both which use AixiZ glass lenses. Then I swapped the DJR's lens with the 405-G-1 and man, did that thing light up... *8-)

It will be some weeks before I can deliver figures as I await my new LPM (hey boys & girls, can you say, Ken-o-met-er?) but as for beam pattern, I really didn't notice any major changes (with the red LCC diode) except that the signature line through the dot increased in length three-fold (see pics below).

I'm already excited with how this lens enhances 640-660m, can't wait to try it out with the 405nm wavelengths... *



Well done, big guy *

Default Re: FS: 405-G-1 Glass Lens Mod-28% Increase vs Aix

Nice! 8-)

Yes, the 405-G-1 glass lens will increase the power of red builds too...

Much better than AixiZ glass, but not as good as Meredith glass.

Here are my comparisons for several different lenses with both red and blu-ray that I copied form another post:



Note: All comparisons to AixiZ acrylic is with the 'back opened'.
Starting with the comparison of the 405-G-1 glass lens vs Meredith glass with red. Using my 'Ice Box' TEC cooled open can build which is set at 450mA's.

* 405-G-1 glass lens - 302mW's.
* Meredith glass lens - 316mW's!

Meredith glass lens mod fit for AixiZ here: http://www.laserpointerforums.com/fo...num=1238535187

That's about a 5% increase using the Meredith glass lens for red. (vs the 405 lens)

Now to be fair, using these two glass lenses in comparison with a blu-ray build is not even close. The 405-G-1 glass lens will give 18% more power vs Meredith glass, and at least 26% increase vs AixiZ acrylic!
Jay

Edit: Just to note that the manufacturer of the 405-G-1 glass lenses does offer different AR coatings for this same optic. Here is the 'full' data sheet for the 405-G-1 glass lens that I am getting:
(Data sheet for this 405-G-1 glass lens)


Both of these glass lenses are much better than acrylic for red as well as blu-ray. For red, comparing to AixiZ acrylic, you will get at least 20% more power using Meredith glass.

Other comparisons including AixiZ glass:
Compared to AixiZ acrylic (back opened), I get only 4 to 5% more with AixiZ glass for red. AixiZ glass has 3 elements. This is why it has less gain than the other 'single element' glass lenses, even though it is AR coated for red. Plus, AixiZ glass in not as 'short focus' in design.

Comparisons: (red open can)
AixiZ acrylic vs AixiZ glass - Gain 4 to 5%
AixiZ acrylic vs AR coated acrylic from Virtual Village - Gain 10%
AixiZ acrylic vs Meredith acrylic - No gain, or very minimal gain
AixiZ acrylic vs Meredith glass - Gain about 20%
AixiZ acrylic vs 405-G-1 glass lens - Gain about 15%
(New broad band glass lens from Meredith - About 2 or 3% less than their 'optimized for red' glass lens with red)

Comparisons: (blu-ray)
AixiZ acrylic vs 405-G-1 glass - Gain 26 to 28%
Meredith glass vs 405-G-1 glass - Gain 18%
AixiZ acrylic vs AixiZ glass - 7% less with AixiZ glass for blu-ray
(New broad band glass lens from Meredith - About 3 or 4% less vs my 405-G-1 glass lens with blu-ray)



P.S. For Meredith, there are two different glass lenses available now. I have tried both of them. I use the best one for red with my Meredith glass fit for AixiZ mod. Their new 405 coated lens is a broad band coating that is decent for both red and blu-ray. But not as good as the 405-G-1 glass lens for blu-ray, and not as good as their original 'optimized for red' lens that I am using for my Meredith/AixiZ mod for red.

P.S. I believe Meredith will be replacing their 'optimized for red' glass lens, with their new broad band glass lens.

I dont have an LPM but I did get my nice new lens in today. Tried it on both a 280mw red and my 140mw BR. The difference with it on either is very much noticable. It's going to remain on the BR of course and I may hit you up eventually for a Meredith lens for the red. Well made and nice mod.

Default Re: FS: 405-G-1 Glass Lens Mod-28% Increase vs Aix

One thing that i've noticed *is,that my batteries don't last that long as they were with the older lenses,and that my mini might run a bit hotter,kind of weird since i didn't changed anything,or i might just imagine things? :/
I might as well test it with both just to see if im wrong lol

But man my mini is so strong now....it can burn wood from like 2 meters away,i don't thing that it could be possible with the older lenses....

Great to see your feedback guys!

About the battery draining more... No, this would not have anything to do with the lens modification. Could be just a coincidence and maybe your battery is going bad...

Or, maybe since you like your blu-ray laser so much better now, your using it more!

The last one might be true ^^ Or maybe the battery its not charging fully.Can you tell me the usual life of the battery in a PHR-803T running at 121ma?
