Re: O-like 400mw green - Review

I'm kinda :( about how fast the dot gets HUGE ! i mean 30 meters and it's already like 10 cm diameter o well
It wasn't a defect of the laser, so I wasn't gonna say anything about it, but yeah, compared to my fixed focus lasers, the dot gets HUGE fast. and refocusing every time, for pointing seems like a hassle.

Still, so long as i get an at or over spec replacement I'll be happy. By that time i'll also have an lpm to have objective data.

One of my coworkers saw the dot on a wall 30-35 feet away and thought it was some kind of a green flashlight :/

Re: O-like 400mw green - Review

Hi,

I was only using it for a short time, just to check if it works and if it can light a match. While pointing it on a wall 7.5 meters away it looked good but maybe because I wasn't watching closely, I didn't notice.

Is there a 'professional' way to check whether the beam is coming out straight?
Flat cylindrical host? Just turn it on, and roll it back and forth with your hand on a flat surface like a table.

If the dot traces out a relatively flat straight line on the wall as it rolls, it's centered. If it makes a loop-de-loop, it's angled.

Re: O-like 400mw green - Review

Mine came today. Was shipped on the 24th.
My order was shipped on the 21st, USPS tracking has not changed since the 23rd. All i know is it left Singapore on the 23rd. I am in Nebraska. Did your Tracking info get updated frequently once it was in the US?

Order was placed via their website on the 22nd. Here's what my tracking looked like with regular shipping.

Delivered, March 12, 2011, 12:47 pm, FAIR LAWN, NJ 07410
Notice Left, March 11, 2011, 1:39 pm, FAIR LAWN, NJ 07410
Arrival at Unit, March 11, 2011, 5:21 am, FAIR LAWN, NJ 07410
Foreign International Dispatch, February 25, 2011, 2:16 pm, SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE

This was for a 650nm O-like 250mw Cutie. As you can see there is quite a huge gap between the time the laser was ordered and the time I received it. I was also very antsy about the huge amount of time in between updates.

The expedited shipping they have does provide more updates. Although expedited is a very relative term with chinese companies... Placed an order on the 31st, got tracking info via chat on wednesday night, but still no updates in system.

Re: O-like 400mw green - Review

Here's a 100 sec metered run. I was getting about 10mW more this morning when the air was cooler. It may have peaked higher, befpre the Radiant Alpha warmed up. (sorry InfinitusEquitas, hope you get a replacement soon :rolleyes:)

Re: O-like 400mw green - Review

A little noob question. Is it the laser that uses 10+ seconds to reach 400mw or simply the meter counting slowly up? I'm wondering when mine may be at its peak..

Either way i'd be happy with that power.

The meter takes 10-15 seconds to respond. I think the laser is at full power much quicker.

Allright, Nice to know. Tried to measure it without the water proofing lens yet?

The newer batch of lasers is different from the original. The original needed a tool to turn the focusing lens. On the new model the focusing lens is the waterproofing lens. You can't remove it.

Really?

But if you unscrew the focusing head, you can still measure the raw output, I suppose?

Of course it wouldn't matter thath much then.

Re: O-like 400mw green - Review

I can report now that the beam comes out in a slight angel. Didn't measure how much, though.

It burned a match and popped dark balloons (without a black dot) 2 meters distance in a few seconds.

It also burned a hole in a CD case at half meter distance in 10 - 15 seconds.

Really good laser for its price.

BTW, what is the charging time of the TR 18650 UltraFire 2800mAh 3.7v?
