Congratulations on the epic new instrument. I cannot think of anyone more deserving!
I too, remember the time before blue LED's existed. And visiting the LED museum on dial up.
Now I have a cable modem and 2 flashlights over 5000 lumens, A BLF Q8 and a Sofirn Q8.
Best wishes from a long time...
This thread is GOLD for those wanting a cyan beam...for not too much money.
I was enjoying mine earlier! My favorite color by far...and yes even at 66mw it
etched my initials on my dark wood desktop...very faintly!
Thanks again LED and happy 4th!
I will definitely whip the class 4 lasers...
I just found this thread...epic. I have 3 PLE-Pro lasers from Jet laser. 2 are 1 watt 520nm and 1 465nm 3.8 watts+.
Love the pictures! I have a beam expander from them too. I use 26650 cells in the blue laser!
I have this laser and mine does 3.8 watts+. I bought the beam expander too for use with my 1 watt 520nm PLE-Pros.
The beam is beautiful. I still do not own a 445! I don't plan on it either. This laser has much worse divergence than the 1 watt 520
ones do. At long range it...
I got one on sale for 199. I did not get the adapter, I use 26650 cells. Mine meters over 3.8 watts
Via laserbee. The fast axis/slow axis characteristics make long range use ugly...it makes a line.
The beam expander helps but the 520 nm 1 watt 520nm green PLE-Pro does much better.
I use my...
I have never wanted one of the monster 445nm lasers because they were too scary for me.
I went 465nm because it would look brighter than 445nm to my eye. Even so, 3.4 watts is
serious power. I imagine that 7 watt monster is even more scary!
On the upside, you are the king of burning! Enjoy...
Epic! How do you like the 520nm? Epic beamage yes?
I have a dark wood chair...and I scarred it last night. The huge volume of smoke in about a 1/4 second
was hilarious. I have seen the flame too...and it self extinguished...thank God.
I have a cover on one of my big ham radios. It has...
Folgers does not sell metal cans where I live. They are all plastic. The lid is easily defeated! Burning all the way through the
red plastic sides is more difficult. My 3.4w beast did it so fast other stuff in the background got drilled too! OOPS!
With a 1 watt 520nm laser on the way, you need to get the right googles now. I have 2 Jetlaser PLE-Pro
520 nm lasers. One measures 995mw and the other is 1200mw++. They are dangerous to your vision
and a fire hazard too. Get proper protection before you energize the laser the first time!
Good cells make a HUGE difference! They are also safer. My big lasers (jetlaser 520nm 1 Watt+ and 465nm 3.8watt +)
draw a lot of current. Orbtronic uses Panasonic and Sanyo cells and will tell you which ones. They use Seiko protection
chips too. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I know...
I have a 505nm laser that uses the 18350 cell that is the shortest green I own, Side by side comparisons
are obvious. The difference is easy to see. Paul sent me a diffraction grating to measure it but between
being too busy and having the flu I have not done it yet. I hope to actually...
Easiest way to tell is this...diode lasers have crappy divergence in one axis. A fat, pudgy beam in one axis
indicates it is a diode. Most DPSS lasers have excellent beam quality...diode lasers are much worse in comparison.
If your laser beam looks much fatter in one dimension then it is a...
Hi Paul 666. I have a wicked lasers 40mw 532nm that pops balloons at 20 feet and will JUST light matches. It has an epic
tiny beam though. I find my higher power lasers much more reliable for burning stuff.
My PLE-Pro 520nm @ 1200mw+ excellent for burning and my 3800mw+ 465nm PLE-pro even...
This topic is comical. It would be easier to chuck a roadflare.
That being said, buy some black powder. Then point a jetlaser PLE-Pro 465nm at it and enjoy the fire works!
My Jetlaser PLE-Pro 465nm laser outputs 3.8 watts plus. It defeats the top of a folger can in less than 2 seconds
