Default I plan on making a laser, any good?

Ok. So I'm new to all of this so just stick with me on this one
Soo.. This is what I'm thinking

This baby 50mw
DIY 50mW 532nm Green Laser Module

Along with this beast (not really a beast)
1mW 532nm Green Laser Pointer Pen Beam Light Mid Open AAA 3A | eBay

If I had these two could I take the old module out and new one in along with the batteries? Not 100% on sizes.
And do I need any other parts?

Please bear with on this I am open for suggests, let me know.

Cheers, Jayden

Default Re: I plan on making a laser, any good?

Well Jayden I am not sure that you can change the module over and secondly laserer does not seem to be a reliable site these days so I would be avoiding them.
My personal opinion would be to go to ebay and look up a green module from someone like Techood or there are others there which I have used but shipping even to AU is 3 to 4 weeks but is free. Then I would go to http://laserpointerforums.com/f41/ma...rst-83991.html. These are the local blokes and you should be able to pick up a C6 or 501b host starting at $20 that you can just drop that green straight into and you will have a much better laser. Just do a little research and you will end up with a much better product this way which will = Happy!

I see Shakenawake has given a link to some nice pens there which look like good value from a reputable company. Not sure on the new US Customs regulations are?

You should add to your profile that you are from OZ. Makes it easier for people to help you!

That host will also need the Heat Sink sold there at $6.99. A 12mm green 532nm module with a spring on the bottom will go straight in with no soldering needed! Has allan screw to hold module in.

Iv been looking and I can't find a heat sink, what website can I find one?
And does the heat sink go on the front of the module?

And the other thing is the BUTTON will the button line up my problem is the size and fitment.

Sorry for all of the questions :/ I'm new.

On the same page as the host. Scroll down and you will see a non anodised aluminium heat sink for $6.99. It will be easy you will also need a 18650 rechargeable battery and charger. ebay has both but stay away from the Ultrafire type brands they are dangerous. These are 3.7 volt batteries and these Diode modules run off of a single 18650. If you order your module and host now you will have plenty of time to read up on here about how to put it together which if you ever played with LEGO you should be able to put it together, really easy! Also you have plenty of time to read up on safety and also some of the stupid mistakes people have done! I can help you if you get stuck.

You could do that, or you could just get an empty pen host from lilyelectronics or ebay. Just have to search "new wish laser host" or "unassembled new wish laser pen host". they are only a couple bucks

Default Re: I plan on making a laser, any good?

That heat sink is made for the C6 host and is not needed in the pen host that you are buying. The diode module you are getting is designed to run at a higher voltage than the 3V that your 2 x AAA will provide but I guess it will still work, might not run as bright? Module should just drop straight into that host. Don't forget the safety side, I hear learning to read Brail is not easy!

Cheers for replying
As long as it is a decent laser I'm happy , plus if I ain't happy I can always buy the c6 and test that. One other thing, will I get see the beam with the 50mw or do I need MORE POWER?

You will certainly see the beam in a dull lit room and most definitely at night. Do not forget that you cannot run them continuously, maybe a minute on and 30 sec off. If it gets to hot you will blow the diode!
Read the "Stickies" while you are waiting for your parts to arrive, You will have about a 3 week wait!
