I can send you the guts if you want them.. no charge, well, cept for shipping. Bottom line, 20+ bucks and a couple of batteries are the gateway to my new drug...lasers... I am already a candlepower forum flashoholic, so why not right? so many 18650's and not enough darkness... wha wha wha, the devil has infected me once again.. HID's led's pcb's ... this is all a dream this is all a dream..... For the price these lasers are def neat, I just need 10 more jiggawatts..
the violet is 405nm the green is 532nm and the red is 650nm.

HMm i freaked out when i got my 200mw green compared to red the battery oddly goes opposite with the green? so i tell people that green is odd!

Default Re: Amazon pointer 3 pack (red green and violet)

I just received my pack of 3. No batteries were included. They came in individual bubbled pockets.

The green one is very slightly weaker than my previous "astronomy" 532nm.

I have nothing to compare with the 405nm so I guess it's fine. The lens might be busted because the dot (and divergence) is terribly large.

The red one is quite strong but I'm guessing not more than 50mW.

I wonder if you can adjust the focus on these things, or maybe I shouldn't even bother.

The lens was epoxied in place on mine. It is fixed focus.

Did you fiddle with any of these to see if there easily adjustable? Because as I gather from your original post you just tested the pen lasers as the were in there original configuration.

Default Re: Amazon pointer 3 pack (red green and violet)

I got mine yesterday, and wow. They are all definitely WAY overspec.
The green beam is visible inside with the lights on, and I can see the beams of the red and violet when pointed at a dark object and looking down the path of the beam with the lights on.
Outside at night, the green is thick and solid. It's amazing. I've never had a greenie this bright before. I can also easily see the red and violets as well.
I'd venture a guess that they are all near 100mW, with the violet much higher (maybe even 150mw).
If I point the violet on me, I can feel that spot get very hot after a few seconds.

So you think the violet is more powerful then a phr diode? Someone needs to make a focusing adapter for these, that would make them even better. I might have to try these out.

Update on mine.

I aimed the beams through lenses and got all 3 of mine to burn something black.

You could just use a jewelers loop or magnifying glass to focus your laser.

Default Re: Amazon pointer 3 pack (red green and violet)

I decided to try this so off to amazon I went.I wanted to save money so I found a slightly cheaper deal...a 3 pack for 21.99...but here's the EPIC part...they were billed as 200mw!!!!I guffawed and ordered.I expected a 100mw red, a 55mw 405nm and a 20mw green.The red was somewhat stronger than my previous 100mw(sorry no LPM so very crude observations here).The 405nm was EPIC however.It is very strong with a visible beam...even in a moderately bright room.It also hurt when I aimed it at my foot...yikes.It is probably the most powerful laser I own.It looks much brighter than my fastship 405nm pens...and they burn with a lens.This one REQUIRES goggles.The green starts dim then rises to a crazy peak then falls again.Beam quality is good and it looks like 20mw once it is stable...I won't hazard a guess as to what it's peak power is.
Now for the most hilarious part...every one is replete with a nice <200mw label and the color of the beam on the label is correct.Cool.I decided to open the link from my order back to amazon...and it was GONE.The same lasers are still there,of course, but now are labeled <5mw....with cautions to keep them away from children.
To sum up..a very nice over 100mw red, a dangerously powerful 405nm, and the kind of green you expect for 7 bucks.
I consider the mission a total success as my primary goal was to get another 100mw red and perhaps a slightly stronger 405nm.
I still can't get over how visible the beam is on the 405nm....
