Thanks for your explain!Hi Shake,
Yes you are correct the NUGM03 525nm diode is a G Ball lens diode, no focusing possible.You can also take the G Ball lens off and use a G2or similar lens to focus the beam. That will make it an open can diode and yes precaution should be take about particles and dirt getting on the emitters or Poof goes the diode.
As Tung stated he uses the G2 and 3E lenses in two of the build, therefor they are de canned diodes with the G Ball lens taken off.
