Cool Cheap rip off or an actual 50mW 473nm laser for 30 bucks?

wholesale and retail 50 mW Blue Laser Pointers

Check it out I think it's not true but they claim it's 473nm.

Go ahead and buy one and tell us how it turns out.
j/k don't waste your money. You can get the same 405nm laser on ebay for $10 except they call it a 405nm.

Keep in mind that a 405nm laser, when shined on these fabrics that fluoresce (like cotton, as example ..... never tried on a white t-shirt ?), looks as 460 / 470nm color ..... same thing on white paper for photocopiers and similars .....

Why would you order that laser for $30? You could have just ordered the exact same one on ebay for $10 and then gave me the extra $20 for showing you a cheaper alternative. There is a wealth of knowledge here to save you from wasting your money but if you choose to ignore that knowledge and learn on your own through expensive trial and error then so be it.

Well I want to see if it is 473nm ebay or any other website will say it's 405nm plus it claims it has a power of 50mW so it doesn't matter on wealth of knowledge what matters is that these companies correct themselves besides it's very cheap.

Default Re: Cheap rip off or an actual 50mW 473nm laser for 30 bucks?

With latest developments it could turn out to be true blue, (I doubt this very much however!), but not 473nm, so don't get over excited until you can check wavelength... And, given the ratings of these new 445nm diodes, if yours does turn out to be true blue, it had better be WELL over-spec when you get it! That'd be a turn up for the books. 10x rated output!
