Default Re: i need help in purchasing a new laser

I just took apart the host that "cute" O-Like laser uses. (same host, not from O-Like, and different color, but same host for sure)

You could very likely take a circular piece of glass, and epoxy it between the diode and the lens. It's hard to understand what I mean, so take a look:
http://laserpointerforums.com/attach...ired-diode.jpg

The lens slips down into that cylinder. I'm pretty sure everything else about this host (battery compartment, switch, etc) is waterproof already (at least within reason)
