not been on here for a few years maybe.
It's that time of the year we go camping sleeping in tents in the countryside and I am in need of a powerful but more importantly "bright" blue laser pointer with good beam charachteristics.
In my time I had a few 473nm RPL lasers from Optotronics...
Hi folks, looking to sell my 150mW pen I bought from Optotronics few months back. Bought it just to use on an overnight trip in the dales and now is surplus to requirement.

Laser has incredible divergence and...

Hey guys, man it's been a while for me sur have missed this place.

i'm really far behind interms of whats new out...
up for sale is a very very rare and unique optotronics RPL blue laser, measured at over +70mW average output. make no mistake, high powered dpss 473nm blue handhelds are rare as you know, but +70mW is one of a kind.
i've had the laser for around 5 months but its only been taken out of the house...

i have come to a very tough conclusion that this is the end of the road for me as far as lasers go.
i have had some warning signs and then some wake up calls and if i dont take this final chance, then it may be too late.
i was setting up alignment with a few optics/gratings when i was struck...
Daguin's communication/support was excellent. just as you'd like, he replied to PM's almost immediately.
i think he shipped the laser out on saturday and i recieved it in the uk the following wednesday.
the parcel was packaged very professionally, with lots of peanut/bubblewrap in a flat...
i recently got to know some dude who collects guns. im not sure wether these are "real" guns or just pellet guns, not got around to asking him.

i noticed i posted an incomplete review of this laser a day before the LPF server crashed recently and now that i have my power meter back, i thought i would post the complete review seen as though it got deleted.
i have to say i got excellent customer service from Jack, he answered all emails...

the charger for my dx red 200 arrived, but im kinda confused as to how to power this.
the charger came itself as you see in the pic below, but strangely theres no power lead. there are 2 pins at the back which look as if they connect into a wall socket.
when i put the batteries in, the green...
