Well an uncollimated 24$ laser is worth taking apart.
The beam is no longer as appealing because it looks like a club extending into the sky rather than a deadly UFO slicer. So its worthless anyway. Although..arguably "safer"
I went and shined it outside just now though in the day light. Sadly my phone has undergone catatrophic failure and will not power up under any circumstances. No pic BUT I can accurately describe it better.
It just looks like a nice "round" 2 inch speckled circle with no noticable focal point.
So if I do manage to get the host taken apart..I suppose I should post pics and go from there.
