The last 3 Blu-Rays I built are running at ridiculously high ma. I killed 7 to find three that can hang out at these high currents. I now have 2 that light matches, cut electrical tape ( slowly), burn leather, and all that fun stuff.
Hey Switch what kind of vid do you want?
The beam is only visible if it is being shined toward your direction. I don't have 5mW of green to compare it with, but from past lasers I have owned I would say that it is about as visible as 2-3mW of green.
Hmmm... that's not too bad. It sounds about as visible as a 5mW red. I need to get parts... I've been accumulating pieces to build a red or IR burner but after this I think I want to build a Blu-ray...
