Talking RDTech SH-032, 1.3W 520nm

So, where to begin?! I asked RDTech to supply me with a high power Greenie and he replied very promptly to my mail. Within a month or so he had built the laser, and sent it. I was in no rush, but it got here only a few days after he'd sent it.

First impressions of the Aurora SH-032 host are that it is small, and quite lightweight, not alarmingly so, but it's certainly not a hefty laser.



It looks the part, and has a fantastic finish to it.



It uses a G series lens, though I'm unsure which one exactly. The heat-sink is copper, and works a charm. I've run it happily 30s on and 30 off so far. Heat begins to build quickly as it's such a small laser. Battery lasts a while, and it operates using a single 18650. Divergence isn't as poor as I thought it would be, it actually collimates reasonably well compared to other multi-mode diodes I own. The "barcode" line is still there, but hey. Once it's aimed skyward it isn't noticeable, and if you want a perfect dot with a thin beam, you buy a 532nm anyway right?!

The tailcap is a simple push click button, exactly how I like them to be. No nonsense with a decent click. The button itself and the supplied lens cap are glow in the dark which is handy.







The finish on all parts of the laser are of a high quality. The inside and tailcap are both neat, with no loose ends or issues.



Over all I'm really happy with the laser, and it's a great addition to my collection. I don't own an LPM, but RDTech assures me it is 1.3W and I'm willing to believe that claim. With the parts being so well finished, the ordering process so smooth, and the shipping so fast, I would say that buying from RDTech was enjoyable and I intend to make another order with him one day.

I'll put up some pictures of it in action with beamshots once I get the time! Until then I hope you enjoyed this quick review, and I'd like to say thank you for reading the post!

Aww sorry guys (and chick?) I have to get an account somewhere for piccies as I'm running low on up-loadable photos on my profile (you should check out my profile, got lots of pics).

Is there any way to increase the amount of pictures I can store on my profile?

Here is an obligatory beamshot to be going on with until I go out and take some really swish ones pic is an LE shot. 24mm focal length, F2.2, ISO 2000, exposed 15 secs. Taken up Glastonbury Tor in SW England.

If you want that puppy LPM'd , ship it up to the Wirral (where I am) , it should take no longer than 4-5 months

Well, the reason is , not because I want to play with it for a few months....honest...

It's simply to verify the longevity of the laser...honest...

Hahaha ohhh of course well once I find a way to get more photo space on my profile I'll be heading out and photographing a weir I have found which is near to me. It looks ideal for night time LE shots of lasing
