GH7 520nm Adjustable Focus Green Laser Pointer Laser Pen Torch 3 Switch Modes​


(cant post links yet, so that is the exact title from sky_lasers, I believe CNILasers sells the same thing on eBay as well)



I messaged the seller, he says it's a 1W green 520nm diode, I'm wondering how much brighter it'll be than my 445nm 3w thor h2.. should I buy?


It is basically the Thor Ultra but with a green 1w diode.​

You gotta ask ya self one questions empyreus, do you like coherent light? well do ya?

Me, I wouldn't buy it. Not because it ain't cool asf, but because I'm more apt to buy a bunch of stuff to make me a laser pen over buy one. So many cases, so many drivers, so many diodes, colors, modes, the women love lasers, the cats love lasers too. So really, you have to ask yourself if 1000mw of green sexy laser is worth the bill that comes with. I've bought a bunch of fat beam modules, because I can. lol. Just dropped a c note and a jackson on some custom made 488nm fat beam modules. I spend to much on lasers, I bet you do too. Pssst, buy the gerd dang laser!!! It's sweet looking. I like my 120v wall powered lasers best.

Yeah true haha, i LOVE lasers and have already spent hundreds on stuff like thor h2, thor ultra, thor m2, pocket lpm, etc, how much brighter do you think that 1w green will be over my 3w blue?

Bottom pic:::::The second from top and the fat beam above the giant purple are green. Top is 532nm @ 150mw bottom is 520nm @ 100mw. the giant purple is causing the wash out. It is a nubm044 running @ 3 amps.

Top pic is nubm044 off. all with a fog machine running.

Wow thank you so much for the picture! so nice to see :)


I ordered the laser for $309.99 from eBay, cnilasers messaged me back confirming it is 520nm 1W, do you think it is truly a 1000mw diode? I saw laserpointerstore selling the same one as 520nm 1000mw for $289.99 and I trust them with their power ratings.. so...

and you didn't buy two!!! OMG!!!!! you could have saved $6.29!!!!

sweet laser by the way. I've notice with the higher rating sellers, they are pretty true to their word. Some of the shady ones over drive the diode and shorten its life. I'm a big fan of two particular sellers on ebay. Buy a lot of stuff from 'em. When I get something bad, never had a problem with a replacement coming fast, usually I offer shipping fee paid from my pocket. Why not, they always treat me good when I make and offer. Idk about cnilasers, but the two I like the best will answer any question, honestly. I tested them on it, and they both passed. It's why I like them. You should check the feedback profile and rating on any seller on ebay, or dive in and take a risk, sometimes it's worth it. I bet that extra cost is the free expedited shipping fee.

Thank you so much for your input and timely responses! I appreciate it so much :) this community and hobby feels so small sometimes, I'll let you know how the laser is and maybe review it soon next to my thor h2(same host different diode) 3000mw 445nm.

OH MY LORD!! NOW THAT IS SEXY!!!
I dig the h2 housing, and that beam, soooooo round!! can you expand it? I'm a fat beam lover, tight beams are ok, just something about a quarter sized beam.

Whens the green lady getting home?

I looked at cni a bit and they seem to have a decent rep. No worse than any other I've dealt with. Things happen and people suck so I expect some babyish feedback on their profiles. Lots of good stuff on the bay. An never hurts to make a seller an offer, I get discounts that way too. Just saved $25 bucks on motorized bike parts, an another $15 on a chainsaw carb, just for asking. lol.

Make sure the first thing on your mind when you get her ( the laser....!? lol) home, some porn for us laser freaks.

Hey!! Yeah, the laser came on in and it is indeed very beautiful.



There is comparison of the 2 next to each other at night I posted over in General (i can't post links yet, I believe you can see my postings on my profile to find it lol) :) very happy with this purchase and will definitely use your advice of making offers to sellers across seas when buying more lasers :p

Yeah true haha, i LOVE lasers and have already spent hundreds on stuff like thor h2, thor ultra, thor m2, pocket lpm, etc, how much brighter do you think that 1w green will be over my 3w blue?

this will give you a pretty accurate answer.

So about twice as bright. - I hope you are wearing goggles for these as they will literally, light up a room and without goggles are very dangerous.

I have a 1 watt green I bought when the didoes first came out built into a head for a mechanical mod.
Scary bright indoors.

I also have have a 532 @ 1 watt and a Cree900 445 @3.2 watt

the geeen is just a solid close line of green .. 3 watt + in 445 is just steamy beam

I think a 7 watt blue is in order to balance the equation !!
Love my lasers too
