Hi everyone. It's a pleasure to be a part of the Laser Pointer Forums. I started reading from this forum about a week ago and have logged dozens of hours on here soaking in as much info as possible. I'm really new to the laser word but love it!!!

After reading comments of the best place to buy one I decided on the Premium +150mW Green Laser from Optotronics. Man it is beautiful!!!

I really want to try my first build so I bought a Stonetek_RKCSTR_FULL_RANGE Surface Mount Laser Driver, PHR-803T HD diode sled 405nm, and a Aixiz Diode Housing Module.

Thanks to mfo for the incredible laser guide!

Can any one suggest a good host? Also, what would be the best option for batteries (volts) for my build?

Thanks again!!

Jayrob has a lot of good hosts, search the forum for his projects. I think he sells a lot of his hosts as kits. He has a lot of good directions as far as batteries and drivers too.

Welcome!

welcome:gj:
jayrob is always a good choice.
if you are on a tight buget you can use a project box or altoids tin.
as for batteries...
with the rckstr you need more than 7.25V.
you could try the new groove 2 drivers that use around half the voltage (1.3 vs. 2.25) and use 2 3.6 batteries
or you could use a boost driver and only need like 3V

good luck,
toogoofy

I was also looking for the best price for safety eyewear as my 150mW is fairly bright, any suggestions?

Yes! Laser Safety :: Dragon Lasers
Excellent glasses all around, and the 532nm(green laser glasses) also protect against blu-ray(405nm). They are OD 4 for both wavelenghts and some inbetween.

Welcome to LPF, you seem to have everything down, good choice on the opto:D
Also, welcome to the WORST addiction of your life, and the most rewarding!

I don't know about that, crack is one hell of a drug!

lol JK :D
PSHH obviously you've never tried heroin:p J/K as well before I get:banned:
LOL
Anyway... I currently have one 473nm PGL III C my other one the 589nm will be arriving today:D
Yes, I got a very good price compared to the resellers like laserglow or dragonlasers. I bought my blue(473nm) in scopeguy20's group buys from CNI, which turned out to be a GREAT laser, outputting more than double its rated output, and never drops below 45mW unless the batts are dieing, and my 589nm I bought at a SICK price from another member here. Man I cant wait, just 14 more hours till my yellow is here:D

Glad you've joined the dark side (lasers look best in the dark of course).
I'm sure you'll get a lot out of LPF since you've already been reading up more then most new members.

I'm fond Jayrob's hosts. Also I'd like to point out Ehgemus custom hosts in case you haven't run across them yet.
