    Newly Completed 1W Greenie

    Update: I got a G-2 lens from forum member r4mn33k. It doesn't exactly work miracles in terms of divergence or making my focusing life easier, but its definitely brighter now. Only drawback is that, since the lens sits soo close to the diode, I can see a back reflection of the...

    Need Help Building Green Laser

    I used 2x 18350 batteries: https://laserpointerforums.com/threads/newly-completed-1w-greenie.107169/

    Is this laser any good?

    The only issue is that I don't have a lithography laboratory to create my own InGaN laser diodes... over half the laser's (green) price is hard-set

    Don't forget eBay ;)

    Is this laser any good?

    I like websites that offer reasonably priced lasers. Zeus and Wicked do not

    200 W car-mounted laser!

    I guess the diffuseness of the beam doesn't help

    200 W car-mounted laser!

    Damn! Please post any beamshots that you may have :D

    200 W car-mounted laser!

    Keep in mind that the laser beam itself is barely visible unless the person is standing like 15-30 degrees from the point of origin (experimentally tested this in the city). That probably helps with people not getting pissed

    Member: LIFETIME17 fixed my laser!

    Square deal for sure

    200 W car-mounted laser!

    Ngl seems like a pretty smart idea to use a telescope as a beam expander

    200 W car-mounted laser!

    It's amazing, but unlike with Styro's videos it's something that I would never be able to afford XD Most of the magic comes from that laser box, which I'd estimate is >$2K. The Nichia arrays for comparison are only like $330 for 100W

    Wow, G-2 is quite impressive (only 4% loss)

    Newly Completed 1W Greenie

    Glad to hear its possible to dismantle/clean the lenses, will definitely give it a shot (I have 99% isopropanol) (y) I assume you'd get the G7/8 lenses from eBay? Or is there some cheaper and/or faster shipping place to get them from? Appreciate it

    Is this laser any good?

    Don't forget that you can always go cheaper if you build your laser yourself. Man, if only I had a lathe...

    Newly Completed 1W Greenie

    Lol I was just cleaning my lens again and I noticed that a small speck got in between my lenses somehow (I'm using an all-glass 3 element lens)... Any idea how to dismantle/clean it (without a cleanroom) without making it dirtier than when I started? Or if not could any of you guys hit me up...

    7W 450 nm handheld build

    True, but I guess what I'm trying to say is that at some point you'd get better form factor from a radiator system than from a large block of metal. Obviously that isn't possible within a handheld laser, but yeah

    7W 450 nm handheld build

    At some point heatsinks stop being effective and you need to introduce heat pipes and radiators into the mix XD

    Is it possible?

    A successful thief would never report themselves as successful XD

    Is it possible?

    Not so much illegal as technically challenging. What are you going to do, attach a robotic arm to the drone?

    Where can I buy a 7 watt laser?

    If they were confiscated 8 times, I'd suggest maybe buying just the laser diode and seeing if it makes it past customs. If it does (just the diode by itself), you can buy the other components to complete your laser with no problems
