I get a lot of questions on YouTube asking how "hot" a certain laser is. Instead of attempting to explain differing units, I came up with this instead:



That laser in the video is a Pailide build. 1W in a host that small has its problems. :D

Wow! I didn't think the result would be that instantaneous.

We can be for certain on the temp...but at least we know it's at least 130 F.

That would be a while, if ever! 1W would take 1100 times as long as a microwave at 1100W... I wonder if the soup would cool faster than the laser could heat it up! Also, remember the laser would mostly pass through the clear stuff that makes up the soup.

What about a cream soup thats not clear... Maybe we need someone with a 1W laser to do an experiment? Maybe I have an excuse to buy a 1W laser :p or a 100 Watt laser!

HAHA I can see it already....its a new noob guage for "how to tell if your o-like laser is up to spec" If it is it should be able to:

Smoke black plastic
burn paper
pop balloons
light matches
explode thermometers

I can even hear it already "My laser isnt up to spec. It cant even explode my dads thermometer!"
