    What Happened to Dragon Lasers?

    I couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, Indeed there are idiots that take the privilege away from us hobbyists. As you said, I also believe that if we didn't have imbeciles shining retina-fryers at aircrafts, we would be able to get high powered lasers through customs no problem from these sweet...

    What Happened to Dragon Lasers?

    Oh gosh that actually really sucks, I swear the best laser pointers were between the late 2000s and early 2010s :(

    What Happened to Dragon Lasers?

    About a little more over a decade ago, I got myself a 125 mW viper series from dragon lasers and I was pretty impressed with the quality and the mass of this laser pointer. Recently, I wanted to check out more of what this company has to offer. However, when I wanted to get a hulk series to...

    It's 2020... Can We Safely Store our Rechargeable Li-ion Batteries in Our Lasers Yet?

    True, when I received my parcels for most commercial lasers, I noticed they put the batteries inside the host, and at the bottom, there's a plastic wrapper sandwiched between the battery and the spring of the tail cap. For some odd reason, I've always seemed skeptical about lithium batteries...

    Can I solder a laser diode directly to a PCB?

    Well, I'm assuming the pipeline is made of metal so you can touch it to ground yourself. Or, I can wrap some bare wire around a screwdriver and put it in the mouth of the outlet (the ground), just like how Styropyro did it in one of his videos.

    Can I solder a laser diode directly to a PCB?

    If you really think soldering is all I'm concerned about don't forget a static shock can also kill your diode faster than that 😅

    Can I solder a laser diode directly to a PCB?

    With all due respect, diodes can be expensive so yea obviously I would give a **** to account for any possible failure. For the record, I don't run my diode "300% overcurrent." Please don't exaggerate. Soldering while it's in its housing is not a problem I thought the user was referring to just...

    Can I solder a laser diode directly to a PCB?

    That diode in the copper housing is still considered a heat sink. I'm assuming you chose copper since it dissipates the heat faster than the regular silver Aixiz module housings.

    Can I solder a laser diode directly to a PCB?

    Soldering temperatures can range from anywhere between 626°F-662°F (330°C-350°C) and the melting region of most solder is 370°F (188°C). Below is a sample data I from OdicForce, and it says for the absolute maximum ratings it has a case temperature of max 50°C and a storage temperature of 75°C...

    Can I solder a laser diode directly to a PCB?

    It would be unusual to do considering that the diode will have nowhere to dissipate the heat and it may get fried before you even get to turn it on.

    Buying a red laser pointer

    It will, but you don't have to because you can easily just take the line lens in front of the actual dot lens and it will work just fine. You will have to obviously rotate the head to adjust the focal point to get it a certain distance, but not the lens. You can add an extra lens in front of the...

    Buying a red laser pointer

    Unfortunately, when I checked the driver on my laser before I took it off, It did not have a potentiometer. However, If you search up "635nm-660nm 200-300mW Red Laser Diode Driver Constant Current" on eBay, it sells the exact model of the driver used in the old style reds. To be realistic, it...

    Buying a red laser pointer

    You're Welcome! And yes, the lens is easily swappable, I actually asked the seller that question and Charles responded yes. I have included a couple of pictures below of the break down of the host. This is a really nice host since I can very easily swap the diode to put a 200mW+ inside since...

    Buying a red laser pointer

    I haven't reached 20 posts yet to post a link but just search up: Wargamers line laser for line of site [AIX-LLWG-1]

    Buying a red laser pointer

    Hey Peter, sorry for the late reply! I actually saw this thread a while ago and I was actually looking for the same model because I've always wanted that model back in 2008 but my parents didn't let me get it at that time, ugh. But, after so much research, I found this link: https:// www aixiz...
