Jayrob 2d Mag Kit, Built by DTR

DTR's thread- http://laserpointerforums.com/f52/1-9w-jayrob-2d-mag-host-58470.html#post826541
Okay so I bought the 2d mag 1.7/1.9W 445 from DTR 5-6 days ago. I'm sure everyone or most people at least have read his review/ tutorial on it already. This is just my review of DTR/the buying experience/ laser.

Okay so here goes, this is my second review so bare with me.

I have been chatting with DTR about his Jayrob 2d mag host 1.7/1.9W 445 build for a few weeks. Ever since i saw it, I WANTED IT, AND I WANTED IT BAD.

SO, i PM'ed him and asked him a couple of questions about it. He responded very quickly and very thoroughly to every question. I asked him if i could pay half now, half in a week to reserve it and he could ship it out when I payed in full because I asked him what all lasers he had up for sale at the moment. When he said yes that'd be fine I hopped out of my chair. I was happy kid.

So a few days later I sold my 1W 445, and had the money. I pm'ed him that night and sent him the paypal payment, and next day it was in the mail and I had a tracking number!!!

4-5 days later it was at my house when i got off of work that morning!:D:D:D

I open the big 'ol box and saw bubble wrap. Lots and Lots of bubble wrap. I wondered is this laser in here? After unwrapping about ten foot of green bubble wrap I found my purple punisher!(Trying to find better name, If anyone has suggestions, greatly appreciated). I pop the batteries in and hit the clicky:eg:

BOOM!!! BIG BLUE LIGHT COME FROM LASER. ME LIKE.
I grab my goggles, put 'em on and grabbed the old CD case. I turn it on and definitely less than 2 seconds later there is a little dot on the other side of the cd case smoking my wall. I didn't even have time to focus it completely to 2' burning the smoke instantly appeared from the cd case and then bam its on the other side.

Before I do pictures I just want to say that DTR's lasers, services, customer communication, and build quality is TOP NOTCH. I love my laser, and am 1000% happy with the whole deal and transaction. DTR is a very good seller,communicator, and doesn't down you for dumb questions or for being a "noob". He is a good guy and a great laserist.

Thank you very much once again DTR.

Heres pics. Note I did not get a charger from DTR, i bought that from lighthound and this charger will charge just about any type of battery you will ever need for this hobby. It is the UltraFire WF-188. He did give me the 32600 batteries with the laser tho.

Host-

I put the permanent marker marks on the heatsink/module for a focused position.





Now I know if you've seen a 1W+ beamshot you've seen em all, but I love 'em and I like taking pics.















Thanks for looking, and once again it's just my second review so I hope it was alright! and thanks DTR for everything.

Peace,
-jakeGT

That's what I was thinking! Better be very careful indoors. Don't want to end up with holes or burn marks in all your furniture. Defocus the spot when shining indoors.

i think i want a 2+ watt 445nm ...... I have Yob's 1-watt but i'm curious to see what doubling/tripling/quadrupling that power would look like ...

I had that exact laser, and I loved it! It was a kickass laser too! But i sold it too upgrade! and this one peaks at 1983mW with a g-1 lens and around 1750mW with standard aixiz.

In bright daylight it isn't EXTREMELY noticeable, but you can still tell. At night or in any slight darkness it is like a whole new ball game my friend. And burning abilities. way different. I accidentally burned a 1/4 inch hole in my moms antique desk trying to focus it for pictures from 8 ft. away.
my yob 1W could burn through cd cases but this one does it in literally 1 second, maybe one and a half TOPS. the burning power is incredible, just amazing. and at night it is like your yobresal lightsaber on freakin steroids.
I love it so much.

The only way to know is to try it! as for trippling and quadrupling power, i think we will just have to wait, but like i said doubling it is amazing. Just like the first time i saw my original 1W. same feeling!

i think yob. is doing good things and i like his enthusiasm for lasering but im not a big fan of that 'host' / housing that the 1-watt is in ... it's too small for my hands and i dont care for the "rear clicky" .... i rather have a side-mounted/placed button / switch ...
i like the idea of a mag-lite sized housing like that one you reviewed ... more ergo-nomical that way ...

Just curious, what driver and setting are you using? I'm getting the same kit from Jayrob. Setting the P3 Driver at 1.7A and using his 405 G-1 lens, I would expect around 1.6W or better output, but I don't have a meter.
