@redhook and trevor: I'm not sure what you're trying to say here...?

@jbtm: Ya, good luck with that.

ive tested my diode right at the lasing threshold and its kinda like this:
---------
----------- < well past threshold(horizontal lines stacked on top of each other)
-----------
---------

----------- < right at threshold(just one horizontal line)
is that what your talking about?

Your link validates what I'm trying to tell you. Multimode (transverse) due to many emitters.

This diode does have only one emitter.
When run at threshold, the diode is single-mode. However, the output is more of an elliptical stripe. As the current is increased, the extra "modes" become apparent. Perhaps I should take pictures...

But you are right that this diode will not produce a gaussian circle without fiber coupling or some serious correction optics.
I wish I had some time to take some threshold pictures of this diodes output.

As the power is ramped up, more "stripes" become apparent in the longitudinal direction.

Hm, I think in light of this diode, the delineation should be made between single-mode (in this case, an "elliptical stripe") and gaussian single-mode.

I find it quite interesting that these run in a single longitudinal mode though. I may have to get one at low power just so I can say I have an SLM laser...

I just completed my custom build of 7 445nm casio/nichia diodes from the 140 , yes 7 diodes fitted to a hand milled copper slug 20mm wide with 7 5.6mm holes drilled as 1 center and 6 surrounding with threaded ring stops.
I have a pretty effective double diffuser arrangment and a concave lens followed by a double convex.
my beam dia is about 2.5mm and mrad is unknown but at 0-10 feet this thing has set fire to the couch and 3 curtains, not too mention several spots of carpet.
my question is this- do you think I can call it the super arctic blue wicked laser??

I got a question, how many members here have canceled their orders? Or at least tried. The specs were BS, they keep wanting more money, and half the people that ordered don't even get order update emails about all these different versions they're making, or any updates from them period.

Well... If I don't see it... it must be BS... you can easily change my
opinion with some factual Photos of what you are claiming...

I canceled my order by phone after WL lied to me the 1st time...

I didn't allow them to lie to me any further.... That's how business

Default Re: Spyder III Pro Arctic - Questions Answered

Okay I have a question.

Got my Arctic today (7/30 batch) I plugged in the charge and the light turned green. I put in the battery and it stayed green. After about 5 min I popped it into my Arctic and it seems to work fine. --- Did mine come with a fully charged battery? Does the light turn red when it's charging?


Another question... The 3 battery LED's stopped working after the first use (they were all lit) now they only flicker when I push the on button. Is this something that I could maybe fix by tightening the screws on the base?

Thanks for the help!

Yes, if you'd refer to the video i posted just to explain that in the OP, you'd know. I got mine, i've played with it alot and realized that the batteries supplied by WL are complete crap, if you want your arctic to work go buy a real 18650 that has beed tested for some kind of quality... The battery indicator LEDs don't work for me when using WL's crap battery, but when using my samsung (i think?) 18650s the LEDs are always lit, and do decrease over time, but still aren't totally accurate.

See above, they're likely not getting their rated charge capacity.
