I know you are new to the forum, and you want to jump in on some of these old threads, but bumping old threads over a month old is frowned upon unless you have new info to add. And your opinion is not new news. Please only post on threads a few weeks old at most.

The last few months I have been running my first projector for 3-4 hours each night. Having way too much fun programming effects... I don't usually watch TV as the emission is non-coherent.

Default Re: How many hours a week do you use a laser?

Depends on the day and what else (if anything) I have to do, ive used handhelds for hours on really foggy nights, and I will leave my green labby that is on my desk blasting away at the wall across the room for hours while I work on something, and I have let my HeNes burn for quite awhile too, so if you count all that, maybe 15+ hours of usage depending on the week

All mine have dead batteries from the move 3 months ago. I still cant find my laser stuff. Including my battery charger. I'm suppose to do a review too.

I played with my 1.1W for a short time, then the battery died too.

I keep a low powered green or red on me almost all the time for random everyday usage. It would be impossible for me to carry around my whole collection though, especially the HeNes.

But yes, messing with them in a dark room is pretty fun, but I prefer to take them outside...

I dont think they carry 3.7 Lith rechargeable batteries, and chargers.

I did order a charger from DX to charge the RC123s I need to do my review. But, guess what? The batteries are packed in my stuff too, along with the laser.

Plus I'm to old to 5 figure discount. I'd be too embarrassed getting busted for stealing petty crap. If I'm going to risk going to jail, its going to be well worth it. And to date I have not found anything worth going to jail for.

Default Re: How many hours a week do you use a laser?

Batteries are an issue, since I use an old CNI model (which take AAAs), therefore less than 2 minutes per week.
__________________
95mW infiniti - TO OLD !!! Hardly burns anything without good batteries. But nice as a pointer. Looking at NOVA lasers currently for a fresh new one.
125mW pulsar - Piece of 54!T, doesn't do anything. No burning power at all. But very beautiful as a laser pointer.
191mW ++ IgorT Romisen/CREE laser - This really kills your eyes (without goggles).
170-180mW LikeItBright Ultrafire laser - Works like a flashlight, but a beast up close.
200mW + LCC in police host By Moh. Nice red, and very cheap.
550mW Yobresal "Tiny Laser" - Incredible beam. This specific wavelength isn't really comfortable for the eyes though.
NOIR laser goggles OD 7+ for 180-534 nm Oemlasersystems

Other lasers not worth mentioning
TOTAL AMOUNT SPENT ON LASERS = 1065 $ AT LEAST (not much compared to some other people here...)
Always look on the bright side of lasers ------------------- not literally

Default Re: How many hours a week do you use a laser?

How is this thread off-topic? I would've started this thread in the General section. Anyways, this thread kind of made me realize that my laser usage has gone down quite a bit with time (in recent times) and hopefully that's gonna change for the better as soon as I get my 589 and get a 12X BR. And Helioplasma, I could say the exact same thing you said in your above post. I also have an old CNI 95mw AAA from DL back in late '08 that gives me battery issues and has gotten weaker with time regardless of the batteries used. Unfortunately it's been a while since I've had a new (working) laser in my hands!

Edit: I remember a time when my laser usage was well above 4 hrs per week of constant lasing... I would be charging batteries more often than I would my iPhone!
