    Problem with the tailcap of my new laser.

    The switch is indeed loose. I wasn't sure if it was meant to be or not though. I'm not sure how to get to it inside the tailcap, but I'll try to figure it out. :) Edit: Figured it out and tightened it up. It worked! Thankyou so much! (and to everyone else who tried to help :))

    Problem with the tailcap of my new laser.

    I hadn't tried it when it isn't screwed on tightly, but I have now you've suggested it and it didn't work :( And yes, the cap seems to screw on the same amount regardless if the batteries are in the laser or not. Thankyou for the suggestions, though! :)

    Problem with the tailcap of my new laser.

    I've tried screwing the cap on tighter and working it until a connection is made, but unless I have it positioned as it is in the pic I posted it just doesn't turn on. I don't have access to a continuity tester but will ask around and see if anyone I know has one. Thanks for the help :)

    Problem with the tailcap of my new laser.

    Hello everyone, I received my new 1.5W blue laser yesterday. Very happy with everything, but there's a small problem with the tailcap. Here's a picture of the position I need to have the tailcap in relation to the battery/laser to get a connection and for it to turn on. Part of the tailcap...

    A few months late with my reply, a lot of stuff came up after I'd posted this thread, but thanks for the help everyone! I've taken the advice and inquired to get one from Blord. And yes I will happily write a review when I've received it. :) Thankyou all again for the help!

    Newbie here.

    Thanks Jerry! Made sure to read the stickies and rules, so no problems there. I already have some safety goggles, but after reading about some of the accidents that have happened with lasers I may get some better quality ones. These are what I have been using, and they work wonders for my...

    Where can I get a cheap 1W laser?

    Thanks hak. I live in the UK if that helps, and I've updated my profile with that info. I have also made a thread in the Welcome section. Sorry it was a little delayed, I'm just trying to find my way around. I'll be checking BS&T, and I am considering the laser TheDukeAnumber1 suggested. Thanks...

    Hit in eye with 1000mw 445nm blue laser

    Wow. Reading over this thread really emphasizes the importance of safety goggles. I'm glad I've already ordered mine, and I don't have my laser yet. Best of luck to you Xoul, hopefully this will improve over time, or will atleast become tolerable. :)

    Where can I get a cheap 1W laser?

    Hey everyone, I've been searching around for a 1000mW laser rescently, but I really don't know who to trust, and who not to. What price are we generally looking at for a 1000mW blue laser? I saw a 2000mW laser for $42, but it seems too good to be true. I would be willing to spend around $150...
