Default Got my core to pop a balloon

Okay so it didn't exactly pop it. It put a small hole in it and slowly deflated.

Clicky.

That is one small balloon. Did you Sharpie it? If not, you definitely should, especially since it is a green balloon.

Default Re: Got my core to pop a balloon

I pot modded my core, but the only way I could get it to pop a balloon was to .....
throw it overhanded.

Seriously, I'm going to send it to SenKat with my DX Laser that hes going to test/Review, To see exactly what the little CORE can do when modded.

SenKat, I will have that DX laser tomorrow. Give em a few days to check it out, I will then ship it to you.

Yes it was sharpied. I had a hell of a time with a full sized balloon it just wouldn't do.

And High-octane I'm pretty sure you can't mod a core. You can turn up the pot as you did but the circuits only feed the diode enough to make it not even 5mW.

BTW I'm sending this one back for another because WL lasers suck. This is the first and last time I buy a laser from them.

Oh, I beg to differ, They are well known to put out 40ish + mw After being modded, Its very bright now.

SenKat will have the actual output soon.

I figure if I keep my core immaculate then it will be slightly collectable when WL go under ;D ;D

Ok just to make it easier on the forum here look at this :
http://www.************.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=479

That's why I'm taking it back.

And High_Octane I didn't know that was possible. Is it only a pot mod?

Thats all I have done, but there are 2 other mods that can be done after that, One is the resister mod the other I forget... possibly focusing it better. Caution when modding it IT COULD KILL IT

I plan on posting the output SenKat finds.

I've heard of people getting as much as 8mW on a core. Wow :

If I'm not mistaken WL used different suppliers for the core so the quality/output could very quite a bit depending on what you received.
