Thumbs up 1W 445nm Copper Module W/Microboost & Three Element Glass Lens

Just got mine in today from DTR. He does have the goods!
Good thing I'm a God fearing man.
This thing is ALL BUSINESS! Anything you pass in front of the beam immediately bursts into flames. And this is only the 1w version, right now I definitely do not see a need for anymore than that. Even though I can put a more powerful driver in it later if I decide.
I'm 49 years old, this is one of the coolest things I've seen and been able to mess around with so far in my lifetime!
I'll put a screen shot up as soon as I decide how I'm going to do that. I don't want anyone laughing at my HS setup.

Possible problem with this one. I just put it on my amp meter and its drawing 2.4 amps. I thought the microboost was only able to draw around an amp.

Yea that is probably normal if the battery is a little low. The Microboost has a 3A input limit. When boosting it will draw considerably more current than it is sending to the diode. Boosting voltage is not a very efficient process.

Also you may be adding extra resistance or something with the meter. If you were to power it on a variable power supply @ 4.2V it would probably be drawing more like 1.8A.

Well just put a fresh panasonic 18650 battery on it and its now drawing 2.7 amps.

So, the microboost is burning off around as much amperage as it is using in the diode?

This is what I think of the piece of $hit "suzie" from o-like sold me last week. Lets put some light on the subject shall we... 29 bucks overseas and down the toilet. Thing lasted all of about a day before it died. I wish it was made out of plastic so I could blast a hole through it!

Yea, I bought it off the bay. Insulted me with a 5 dollar refund. REALLY pissed me off!! I all but told him to go @#!& himself/herself! Next time I even think about buying anything from asia, I'll get in my truck, go and find a homeless vet and give him the money.

Lol sounds more rewarding.

Yeah I have only ordered lasers from the " good " Chinese suppliers. I jut can't roll the dice like that, even with under $50 .

Well ,, now you know, buy from the forum! The piece of mind is worth it. But I can't really say " worth it" because the forum is cheaper,,so,,,,,no brainier.

Yep, lessons learned. If I had a dollar for every...

Lately its just been the culmination of one piece of garbage after another that finally made me crack.
Techhood on the bay is good. I've got some good deals there.

He's the only place I will order module, and really anything laser related on eBay. Even if the other sellers are cheaper, I end up going with techhood just to be sure.

Just got a 120mw 532 module from him and its 123mw and holds better than my laserbtb 532. It's very stable and very clean. Only $30 too.

500mw 808
400mw 650 single mode
All from techhood, all perfect.
