Well, that guy also had previously sold his red laser modules as DPSS modules....so I really have very little faith that he actually knows what it is he is selling....pseudonomen137 said:The zonestealth auction states an operating current of 550mA. I'm not sure if its a laser or what, but an 808nm laser diode at that current would likely be emitting in the 300-450mW range tops.
aixiz sells 808nm focusable diode housing with glass lenses for a little over $50. should solve your problem, as the lense on the regular 5mw housings are not for 808nm. i've no idea on the ir from a 20x dvd thoughHemlock Mike said:I built one like this today in an old greenie. Used an Aixiz module and I'm getting 246 mW of 808 but it's almost impossible to focus. My camera blooms too much. Also, I dont think the Aixiz glass lens system is working too good at this frequency.
How many mW does the IR diode in a 20x DVD put out ? I just harvested two diodes from an LG-GSA-H55L today -- Another open face red !!!
