    Diode ageing

    Is there such thing diode ageing? Like, if I use my laser a lot, sometimes not according to its duty cycle, then the diode can weaken and the output power will drop? If there is such a phenomenon, does it vary from one wavelength to another? :thanks:

    How do I change the focus of a cheap pointer?

    Hi, I have this cheap green pointer from DX which outputs 100mW. While such output power should be more than enough for burninig a match, this specific laser won't burn at any distance. The reason for this is that the laser is not well focused, and therefore I can't find a certain distance in...

    Weird O-like pricing

    I just noticed something weird with O-like pricing and wanted to share it: While the 400mW green laser torch /focusable/waterproof (the "old version") costs 214$, the Crown upgrade 400mW green laser torch/adjustable/waterproof, which is supposed to be a better laser (after all it's an "upgrade"...

    Bad experience (so far) with yourlasers (formerly DX)

    Just wanted to share my experience so far with yourlasers: I ordered this 300mW 532nm Green Laser Pen (2*AAA), for 49.99$. Now, I didn't realy expect to get a 300mW laser, and I was willing to settle for a 200 - 250mW. What I got is a 100mW (peak) and 85mW stable laser (I LPMed it). Very...

    Burning capabilities of a 808 IR laser

    Hi, Just received this 500mW 808nm IR laser. It is an overspec laser which outputs 630mW. I tested its burning capabilities among other things and found out that it can burn a match only at close distance up to 30cm well focused. I thought about returning it, adding some money and getting a...

    Looking for 500mw 808nm IR focusable clicky switch

    Hi everybody, I want to buy a 500mw 808nm IR laser. The laser has got to be focusable and with on/off switch (not a temporarily switch). Any recommendations? TIA

    What is the highest wavelength that is visible?

    Just received few days ago this IR 808nm 220mW laser torch /adjustable/burning from O-like. To my surprise, the dot is quite visible while focused at a short range. At a range of one meter it is barely visible and further more it's invisible. My quesion is, can anyone here who owns an IR...

    Burning capabilities depend on wavelength?

    Hi, I have these two lasers: 1. O-like cute 250mw red, 660nm, which is actually around 210mw (peak 217mw). 2. O-like 200-220mw IR, 808nm, which is actually around 200mw (peak 202mw). So I consider the two lasers similar in power. Nevertheless, there are huge differences in burning...

    Lubricating laser focus mechanism

    Hi, Just received this laser from O-like today. The laser has a focusing mechanism. The problem is, that the mechanism isn't smooth, it's rather harsh, and requires applying massive force to move it. My question is, can I lubricate it with oil? Won't it damage the mechanism or the laser's...

    3.7v CR123a Li-lon battery Charger flashes between red and green while charging

    Hi there, After my cheap build charger for CR123a 3.7v battery that came with my 'cute' 250mw red laser from O-like died, Susie sent me another charger. The new one is different than the broken one. While the broken one can charge only one battery at a time, the new one can charge one or two...

    Viewing a 808nm IR laser

    I read in some places that a 808nm IR laser is invisible while others say it is barely visible. So, is it visible or invisible? In case that it is invisible, how can I view it? Are there any special goggles which I can view IR through? Do the IR safety goggles enable viewing a little of the...
