808nm means its in the invisible spectre of the light (infrared) you know that right ? for burning , depends on what you want to burn with it , but there will be no problems with plastic , matches,and the ordinary things , its verry dangerous and hard to collimate read before buying and trying to do something with that thing ;)

That's great, the power is enough...
Um...Do you use a circuit to power the laser diode? Or connect it with a DC power directly?

like any laser diode it will need a current regulated power supply, but also look into buying goggles for 808nm as 1 watt is extremely hazardous and being invisible you may easily hit your eye from reflections

That 1 watt was 80$ for 6 of them, He also had 3 and 5 watts diodes for under 400$ (ebay)
No I was not shure about the visible light.That kind of sucks, I wanted to make a powerfull hand held.
Thank s for clearing that up for me. The last thing I want , is to be blind.
So I guess that visible lasers are the ones you want.
So where do I find a high power diode , that I can see?
