they should make a class 5 for 5w and higher lol.
Interesting, I have thought of having a class 4a and 4b for anything above 2.5W, as this power level is a serious burn hazard. Although class 5 would sound cool.

Class 5 would be pretty cool but 4a and 4b would actually sound more realistic now that you mention it.

Yes, it does due to class 3a and b,
I think FDA should include a class 4b category, as although a 1W is powerful enough to burn skin it isn't instant, but anything over 2-2.5W I have noticed that it is a severe burn risk as my poor thumb found out.

Class IV a - Severe Eye hazard and possible burns to skin and flammable objects.
Class IV b - Severe Eye hazard and severe burn risk. Avoid exposure to beam.

A little more refining to the descriptions needed but you get the general gist.

I think this is scarily possible. Styropyro will be distant and tired making his 1kw 450nm death ray if we get 50w 450's. :)

A new amendment for the law on directed energy weapons? :D Why have a infrequent stream of bullets, when instead we can have a near infinite stream of photons.

Yes, lets hope that battery technology advances as well otherwise, we are going to have small but very powerful diode inside a massive heatsink and a huge array of batteries just to power it.
