Hey guys !
Actually i am trying to make a cheap laser ( capable of burning some small stuff ) . So i am planning to use LPC-826 twin :
Output Power CW: 200mW ave. 400mW max.
Output Power Pulse: 350mW target duty 35%
Operating Current: <340mA
Threshold Current: 75-85mA
Actually i new to laser last time i made a laser but it lasted for 5 mins only. This time i am trying to make a laser that can pop ballon r burn matches , But i am totally blank what should i use . Can you guys recommend which diode , housing ( capable of making a straight beams )...
