So I didn't realize that my blu-rays have burning power until I felt the sting on my tattoo. I decided to try and light a match and it worked. Here is a vid. http://youtube.com/watch?v=CQnE1BkZAW4

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?

I'm with Gazoo --- I was running 55mA and did the burning stuff at a high cost to diode life. Killed 2 that way.

Well, the usual burning pointer stuff: tape cutting , balloon popping , burning black stuffs :p
And if would be cool if you'd tell us how much current you're feeding that blu-ray beast :D

That's intense. I'm guessing about 70mW?
How visible is the beam/spot compared to 5mW of green?

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...

Thats a really cool beam that you can see for half a second in the balloon vid. :cool:
Is that one of DDL's diodes?
