I don't know what type of driver is, but you probably shouldn't reuse it, just because these lasers are made with the /cheapest/ components possible - they are total junk!

I have a green laser 301. It's okay but it's unstable. Just looking at the beam it will jump around in intensity from very bright to mediocre and then bright again. It is typical of what I would expect from a cheap 532 nm DPSS green laser. You get what you pay for.

Well, lack of credit where lack of credit's due
Greens as you probably know are usually pretty unstable. Even my fairly high quality green (~50mW) does fluctuate in power and mode in cold weather.

^Agreed. Although I've owned several and you usually don't see the brightness change much. But cold weather, that can do it easily.

If it's anything like the pens, it's a linear
driver running at around 500mA. They are
built to a price and close to the edge of
stability.
