I have seen some of those where the builder makes what was and still looks like a regular cigarette lighter only a laser shoots out in place of a flame.

I could not think of a better way to accidently blind yourself or allow some innocent person to pick up your lighter to light their cancer stick and fire a laser into their eye, I'm sorry but it is a terrible idea and a dangerous object to create.

I'm sorry to poo poo your idea, and there is one worse, someone could put a laser in an eye drops bottle, that would be more dangerous, but not by all that much. Again I'm sorry to have to say, its a very bad idea.

thanks for the reply red cowboy.....and I do understand your point of safety .......the idea is prob bad in the hands of a child of some idiot teen kid with his friends......this is for me and im a 34 year adult and is not going to be a toy......its something I want to ad to my collection of gadgets ad will be locked away in my gun cabinet......the same thing could happen if it was a torch laser in the wrong hands ect.........

I'm glad that you understand laser safety, that's great.

Keeping it put away is important because it looks harmless, but it could easily be mistaken for what it looks like, a tool that a person holds inches from their eyes, that's what makes it more dangerous than a torch.

Oh and be sure there's no airplane or helicopters overhead when you light your cigarette.

And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

Is a profoundly stupid and very dangerous idea, a 2W to 3W laser lighter.

Just go to JetLasers and buy a decent laser with respectable run time---if you are obsessed with lighting a cigarette with it, you still can.

Default Re: laser lighter

A friend built a laser lighter but you had to insert the tip of the cancer stick into the lighter. The end had a hole at an angle of about 80° and acted as a beam dump and there was no way to be harmed by the beam. There was a contact on the side of the hole also that would only allow the laser to lase when a cancer stick was inserted.

People are obviously reading your post, that's why they're replying and adding onto the idea.

Regardless whether you're going to use it to light a cigarette or not, a lighter with a very high powered laser has a large potential for eye damage, as it will reflect light off of the surface of what you want to light. All we're saying is you're better off just creating a portable laser with a good host rather than trying to make something that will relieve someone from their gift of sight.

Nobody has called you a child, not sure where you got that from.

I understand where you are coming from completely and the idea of what you originally were discussing in this thread. However, as you have already seen, you will usually always get a safety first response from the veterans here. For those of us who have been in this hobby for a long time decades in some cases, like myself, safety first is the creed we live by in regards to lasers. We understand the serious dangers that Class 4 lasers present and regard them with the same caution and concern as you would with a firearm. There is ever more heat coming down on our hobby as of late with reckless morons lasing airplanes and in some cases causing eye injuries to others on the ground through reckless behavior, so we are even more inclined to increase the safety awareness of others and being conscientious stewards of our hobby.

Default Re: laser lighter

I have built lasers in a lot of different things but I keep them in cases and there's only my wife and I so they are out of site and there's no-one to mess with them anyways.
Building one into a lighter is pretty cool IF you are not going to actually use it near your face and there's no chance of anyone else getting their hands on it. I would NEVER put any laser near my face or anyone else for that matter. It's a huge safety issue but that doesn't mean you cant build all kinds of great stuff so happy building

Building one into a lighter is pretty cool IF you are not going to actually use it near your face and there's no chance of anyone else getting their hands on it. I would NEVER put any laser near my face or anyone else for that matter. It's a huge safety issue but that doesn't mean you cant build all kinds of great stuff so happy building
I'm actually considering getting a safe or something similar for my handheld lasers. Someone recently broke into my fathers house and stole the 301 pointer that I gave him. The thief's probably aren't intelligent enough to realize that the laser is capable of blinding themselves or someone else. At any rate, they don't have a charger for the batteries so it probably won't last long, hopefully it dies before they have a chance to harm someone. If they harm themselves then tough luck, they shouldn't have been stealing.
