Default Is it just me who has one?

Is it just me or does anyone else have a 2 in 1 laser pointer like the one below, 5mw Laser + LED Torch. If anyone does, can you post some images/vids of it please so I can get an idea of what it's like.

Thanks

It will probably be what he said. ^^^. It won't really be that visable, you would need to burn stuff and be in the dark to see the beam.

And even then it won't be great. You can get someone to make a combination for you if you really want, but it won't be cheap.

I just tore apart one of those, doubtful its 5mw
Much smaller than a 12mm module, appears to be focusable but mine wont seem to budge
I got a couple of 4 packs from DX to play around with

Default Re: Is it just me who has one?

I had one that I spent $1.99 on. It's batteries eventually died while I was at work, so since it costs less than a set of replacement batteries, I took it apart. By beating on it with an screw and using my flashlight as a hammer.

Good times, good times.

Default Re: Is it just me who has one?

You can't find them at less than 15 in europe. Think what would happen with a 5mW green in an Eu store.

Anyway, this thing is basicaly similar to a 5mW laser only two times more useful. Actually, just get a 5W cree led, it is brighter.
__________________
95mW infiniti - TO OLD !!! Hardly burns anything without good batteries. But nice as a pointer. Looking at NOVA lasers currently for a fresh new one.
125mW pulsar - Piece of 54!T, doesn't do anything. No burning power at all. But very beautiful as a laser pointer.
191mW ++ IgorT Romisen/CREE laser - This really kills your eyes (without goggles).
170-180mW LikeItBright Ultrafire laser - Works like a flashlight, but a beast up close.
200mW + LCC in police host By Moh. Nice red, and very cheap.
550mW Yobresal "Tiny Laser" - Incredible beam. This specific wavelength isn't really comfortable for the eyes though.
NOIR laser goggles OD 7+ for 180-534 nm Oemlasersystems

Other lasers not worth mentioning
TOTAL AMOUNT SPENT ON LASERS = 1065 $ AT LEAST (not much compared to some other people here...)
Always look on the bright side of lasers ------------------- not literally

hah... i have a couple of those that I bought for like $2.48 each at the evil empire known as wal-mart... one looks like that, and one had an adjustable piece of metal sticking from the end with the led mounted in the tip and a magnet on the bottom of the case. Yeah, it'd be nice to make it brighter... but hey, still fun to play with. And I never actually imagined that I'd use the LED tip.. but I have several times!

I have one that has a working pen too just your regular ballpoint pen filling cut to less than an inch). From DX. It's batteries were empty in no time and the led consumes tons more than the laser itself. I took it apart and put it back together. Looks exactly the same as Tokudai's.

I bought mine with $2 :-/ It's chip diode and the module is probably glued in place after focusing.
