I recently got a 1.6w 445nm laser built by RHD, and it burned better the first two days I had it. I've been giving it about 10 minutes of runtime before recharging batteries(Due to decreased burning after a few minutes), and its had maybe 45 minutes of runtime since I got it. It uses 18350 batteries. Do these not fully recharge? How often do you need to switch batteries? I seem to get my best burning the first minute or two after the batteries have been charged.

Thanks

Wrong forum. People should start practicing going in appropriate forums...

But anyways
If they are from Ultrafire, expect not much as they are chinese made batteries. The best batteries are AW batteries sold by Lighthound. Well known on this forum.

They are "ultra fire"...and I got them essentially for free, so they very well might be cheap...If I switched to a better battery it would extend my burn time correct? Any recommendations on a better battery(when I google 18350 batteries-Ultra Fire is all that comes up)?
