I just received the same host for BudgetGadgets this afternoon, accidentally ordered the blue/violet 200mw instead of the 532nm.
Damm thing only meters at 70mw peak using the supplied battery, 3v, that tested at ~3.02 volts. Put in a 3.912v rcr123 and power maxed at 80mw. I've emailed them about this (and the fact that it came with a 532nm warning label on it, scary if your expecting green). We'll see how their customer service is.
They list the blue/violet at 450nm but I think its really the 445nm as it displays the same bar shaped dot as all the rest. Focus ring is super sensitive, can get it down to a small pin point but too sensitive and too easy to defocus for my liking.
Reordered the green version about a week after ordering the blue/violet, hopefully it has a more reasonable power output.
You’re right. To the naked eye, the dot has the same starburst effect of my 405 pen but have never looked at my 445 indoors without shades. Night outside now, dot looks very much like the 405, beam is not very visible, 445, although MUCH stronger, is very visible. The less than pin focused dot, bar beam would be odd then.
I'd probably be ok with the accidental purchase if BudgetGadgets would send the 200mw (~) I paid for.
this is a sensational deal styro has a great review and its beam is amazing and burning capabilities are great for a greenie and my friend has one and measured with lpm...201w 215 max pretty good eh saving up money for one now!
