Thanks BowTieGuy! I do love that color. Blue Green. And the Challenger 2 is a great host. I like the brief ramp up to full brightness-got to be easier on the diode.Beautiful wavelength, that will be a great addition to your collection!
Thanks for sharing. :yh:
BobMc- They DO!Nice, those Challenger 2’s have such a solid feel in the hand. Enjoy!
RedCowboy- Thanks!Great color, enjoy. :beer:
Oooh! I am looking to add a 462-470nm. Am I right to think the same diode will increase in wavelength as power rises (within limits of course!). I like the 470 nm for visibility-but do not want 4-5 Watts. I'd say 300-1000 mW would do,Thanks for sharing!! I’ve got a build with an M462..The Blue Job. Beautiful blue and powerful.
That looks great, Eric. It is difficult to tell from a photo, but the color of this looks far too blue to be 492nm. That color is more cyan than blue. Yours looks like it could be close to 488nm. I'm also glad you got some good batteries. They are worth the extra money they cost. Great review.
Still looks more blue than cyan in your photos, Eric. Maybe a touch of cyan. Photos are the worst way to judge wavelengths. If you ever decide you would like to know what the wavelength is, send me a PM. I will be happy to measure it for you free of charge. But, it will cost you shipping both ways.
Thanks! I might do that! Do you have a Protected (690-700 mm) long "18650?"
As I understand it-from your notes- they are likely using Sharp 488's that output 492 so it's possible there was a mixup. I can see what looks like SB308B292. I found a thread-they are sold as Sharp 490 nm 55 mW. And you measured several- Wondering how they get 150 mW without burnout? Big heatsink? Mine takes a second or so to come on fully. Big Heat sink? The host is Copper-Nickel Alloy.
Re: Sharp 495nm GH04850B2G 55mW Laser Diode (Paul)
" I have 20 of these diodes in hand and plan on testing them shortly. Like all the Sharp diodes I've seen so far these don't have the part number on them. These have the iteration number SB308B292. I will know in the next two hours where these are in wavelength. I have to finish other personal things before I can start testing. I guess I could post here or start a new thread as I have two more shipments coming.
