The 650nm is in a Guidesman Host that takes 2 cr123a batteries.
The 532nm in in a nice sturdy aluminum host with side clicky that takes 1 cr123a battery.
The 650nm just metered 281mW with 650nm coated lens and would probably hit over 300mW with a 650G-1 lens. Has hardly any use, maybe 1 hour if even that. No damage - New condition. The guidesman allows for a huge heatsink so the diode is well protected from heat! It is powered by a rckstr driver using FP wire. I build lasers just to see the dot and pretty beam and then tend to not use them and just enjoying knowing I have them.
The dot is perfectly round and even. You gotta love the LOC diodes :drool: When focused it obviously will burn pretty much anything high power lasers can.
The 532nm just metered 88mW. I measured the IR content to be 14mW so thats still a nice 74mW of 532nm
The laser is fairly stable most of the time but as with all inexpensive 532nm lasers the power will jump as the temperature changes. It runs great with fresh batteries. While metering it I had it on for at least a full minute and a half straight and it stayed stable. I would say it is better than average for an inexpensive module.
The dot has a bit of splash but the lens probably just needs to be cleaned
