Just wondering if anyone had ordered 200mW 532nm Green Laser Module, or any module from deal extreme.. the 200mW is only $40.. just wondering if things there are up to spec, or garbage.. it seems like a good deal, thats for sure
thanks for the imput guys, i'll try one out. I'm having a forum member build me a nice 1.6w blue in a stainless survival laser host, I think i'll use this to try and build my own first laser. I may go for a host from jayrob, Prob his green DIY set... If the DE sucks i guess i can always switch the module out, right?
I ordered a 200mW green laser diode from DX. It was completely out of focus and didn't come close to 200mW. I could get tiny halfely smudgy spots on black tape when using a lense and fully charged batteries... I definenitely do not recommend these diodes but they might just turn out to be a lot better sometimes... Can't be sure though
There was a deal of 200mW green pen from DX a few months ago. It was a $19.99 shipped.
After receiving it I measure it as 90-100mW. Still not bad for 20 bucks.
I think you should expect half of the rated power.
I wanted to order that one too but i think they took it off of there >.< they also used to have a 200mW red laser and it was really powerful... The page for it had been removed though? Too bad... >.< But indeed half the power is about the right estimation... Look up styropyro on youtube, he did a review on one of them
