Dear friends ,
Anyone can please tell me the power of a laser pointer that can light a match stick 6 meters away. I am really interested in building or buying one that can do it.

Thank you Tony.

Mine quit, can someone give me some trouble shooting tips, I know little but i have re moved the module and jumpered it. I did this by holding the -neg end of battery on the module spring and using a jumper form the pos + of the batt to the sink and/or diode case, got no light.
Battery shows 3 volts
above test i did should eliminate the tail switch as cause.
I might mention it quit after i may have vibrated /shocked it trying to push/tap a mounting ring to the host.
Thanks
WJ

Module push button jumped?
Sounds like your battery needs charging too.

Thanks for help PaulorNuthn, I got it kinda by mistake, when try to test i put to much pressure and the driver went sideways and busted a diode solder joint, solder it back and noticed the solder joint for the spring looked dull so I reflowed it and now it works.
I felt something was amiss when i first put it together a couple of weeks ago as i had to adjust the diode with the set screw a couple of time before it would come on and even after it would not come on instantly when i clicked the tail cap switch.
So glad i didn't blow the diode like i have done 3 times doing another build i tried.

Are these by any chance still being offered?

I've got a 594nm Rigel module that needs a new home! :D
