    PL-E mini 520 leaking light?

    Interesting, thanks.

    PL-E mini 520 leaking light?

    OK, thanks for the info. The laser seems OK and will easily burn things, but thought this looked a little weird, so wanted to ask. I also have a 445 nm 2W (this green one is 1W), and the blue laser looks a lot cleaner.

    PL-E mini 520 leaking light?

    Not sure if this is normal, but there seems to be a lot of light leaking out around the beam. Even when I focus is down to a dot, there is a line of light extending out. On the wall without taking a picture through glasses

    ple-mini 1w 520nm???

    I'll let ya know; I just ordered one =) Also, can anyone verify that there's no IR emitted from these 520nm lasers? I think it's only the 532s that do that?

    GUIDE: Which company should I buy from?

    Thanks. I will just stick with Jet Lasers. I was really impressed with their product. They are expensive, too, but seem to be worth it.

    Laser Pointer Store Introduction

    Good idea. It's worth a shot. I just filed a dispute with Chase.

    Laser Pointer Store Introduction

    LPS was a big disappointment for me. I ordered a Sanwu pocket 405nm from them. Should've known better since the prices were sol low. Anyway, the laser arrived after a long shipping time, and unfortunately, there is something wrong with it. I posted some photos in another thread, and a member...

    Quick review: PL-E Mini 445nm 2W

    I am relatively new to the laser hobby, and I just got this PL-E Mini from Jet Lasers a few days ago. This thing is a beast! My other laser is a "5 mW" green laser (301 type), and it's impressive for what it is, but this PL-E is a whole new level (y)(y) Build quality is outstanding. It's got...

    Sanwu pocket 405nm

    Thanks for this info. Yeah, something is definitely up with this laser. It'll light matches and get some things smoking, but my eBay greenie will also do that. This Sanwu just seems very weak, which makes sense, based on what you said. Since I didn't buy this direct from Sanwu, I wonder if...

    Sanwu pocket 405nm

    Here's looking down the front of the laser with lens removed. I guess this looks normal? Same shot, but extreme crop:

    Also, here's what it looks like without the lens on:

    Sanwu pocket 405nm

    Here's another question: should the focused beam look like this? See how there's a ring around the central dot? It almost looks like there's light leakage or something. For a 200mW laser, I'm not very impressed with the burning power, but maybe I'm expecting too much. It will eventually burn...

    Are these OK to use?

    Thanks for the info! Is there any where in the US to buy? It seems like everything comes from China.
  15. MajorLazor

    Are these OK to use?

    No affiliation. I bought a Sanwo pocket from them since it was pretty heavily discounted. As far as the glasses, there's no markings. Pretty cheap, but that's kinda what I expected.

    Are these OK to use?

    Thanks. I think they were cheap, but more than $1.25. I figured I'd just have them as a spare in case I wanted to show someone the laser, or demonstrate burning. The dot looks brighter through these than my OD4 Eagle Pair, but it seems reasonable. What is the max power that OD2 should be...

    Are these OK to use?

    I got these with a 405nm laser I ordered from Laser Pointer Store. They looks pretty cheap, and have no markings to indicate wavelengths blocked or OD. I briefly shined the beam at the side of the glasses, and it did seem to stop it. Are the glasses for violet lasers normall greenish like...

    Sanwu pocket 405nm

    Ah, thanks. Nice :cool:

    Beam stopper?

    I got my 200 mW Sanwu pocket in 405 nm today, and I don't think shining it on my wall, or wooden door seems to be an issue (at least not for a few minutes at a time). If I focus the beam a foot or two away from the device, by the time it hits the wall, it's a large enough spot to not really do...

    Got my new shades

    Thanks! Yeah, these are the IR plus visible. I verified using my IR camera, and they do seem to work. I probably won't do any burning with this one anymore since I have a more powerful laser in blue. So far, these glasses are great, though. I see how they make it easier to focus the spot...
