Hey everyone!

This is my first review so be nice :D

Before i start i would just like to say before i start is that both morgan and jayrob are fantastic :thanks:, the shipping from jayrob in CA took only a week to get here in the UK, and morgan... well he is an excellent quality builder and an all round great guy.

Now onto the review.

I am reviewing the 18650 kit by jayrob that has been built by morgan. This laser is immense, the power of this thing is truly unbelievable, it can light matches instantly and the same with balloons. The exact power is 210 mW peak and settles at 209mW, the picture below shows the current draw to be 382mA but he adjusted it back to bang on 380mA :wave:. you can just about make out the beam in a lit room and is like a lightsaber in the dark :evil:

Now.. onto the pictures, power outputs and current draw :drool:

Picture of the laser



Power output (taken by morgan)



Current draw (re-set to 380mA, taken by morgan)



Now for some beamshots!





Now what would a review be like without match lighting and balloon popping?








thanks for looking!
stuart :)

Hey Stuart,

Nice review! Thanks for the thanks too, I'm glad you are now able to burn up those matches.

It has to be said that building a quality laser is easy when you're building with a Jayrob product.

Enjoy the new toy!

Nice laser, I like those hosts I have a few that I am going to custom build.


FYI, you could bump the current to 420mA easily. I have a LOC running at 480mA with a smaller heat sink than yours for a 6 months.

Add a 650nm coated lens to that laser and get a boost of ~20% output from either Jayrob or Larry

i was thinking about doing those but haven't got the money for the lens yet and i will bump up the current a bit (well i shall have morgan do it for some $$$ :evil:) when i have the money for the lens and then hopefully it should be pushing 260-270mW
