Thank you for the reply GSS, but since like you I doubt the labeling is correct, my question was how to test the unit without specialized equipment. Could you rig up some kind of home made bench test ?
I bought a 5 watt blue laser while travelling in Bangkok. (at the MBK). It is powered by two cr123a batteries. The casing is some king of chrome covered steel and the whole unit is quite heavy (about 12 ounces) and 6 inches long.
When I focus the beam at objects 2 feet away they burn rather...
Saw one just like it at the Bangkok MBK shopping center ( 4th floor ) near massage shop. It appears to be tha same thing, but they claim it is 1.5 watts. I tried burning a few things and it seems of equal power. They where asking 2500 bahts (83$) for it. I think I could bargain it down to 2000...
I think I got you, about total power output and 532 nm output. So I guess it would require a meter that is wavelenth specific.
How do I show my location ? I am presently in Laos and moving to Thaïland tomorrow (Bangkok). I will be back in Canada (home) in mid-april.
I wonder where I can get a...
Thank you for your reply. When you say that you put a high power module in a cheap laser sight, what power would that be ?
Is it 200 mw or more ?
I wrote to the company who is selling the 200mw sight and asked a few questions. They are confirming that it is really 200 mw output.
I am out...
I want to buy a 200 mw green laser sight for my rifle from : ARMLASER at armlaser dot com
I did not post link because I dont know if we can on this forum. The description looks good.
Does anybody know about these guys ? Are they legit ?
For me the price is ok. If it works as...
Sorry but I have a problem with acronym's. I guess TDR is a person or a company ? and ( num num num ) means ????.
Oh, I got the PM part i think it means a memo of some kind... maybe an Email.
If I measure the current draw on the battery with an Amp Meter, and then multiply this by 0.7 volts will I get a good idea of the power of the laser ?
Ex: 100ma X .7 Volt = 700 mw ??
I know there is heat loss in the driver module and resistor, but is that a lot ?
PS I am...
Thank you for this info.
I realize that I might be going the wrong way. From what I read on the forum, maybe I should try to find something like a 200mw green laser to get good performance in daylight situations.
I ultimatly want a rifle pointer (aimer) that is powerful. But it seems that I...
Not sure I get you on this one my friend.
My objective is to have a brighter one for hunting. It may not be as advertised (too good to be true) but it is for sure a lot brighter than the green one.
The reason I registered to this forum is to get technical info. Ex : You cannot have a 800 mw...
