Hello guys and gals, It has been a long time! I hope everyone is well!
I was IceNoise before but I can't access the old account so time to start again.

I recently bought a 301 and 303 532nm from ebay to get back into the hobby on the cheap. They are my first lasers with 18650 batteries and i like them a lot.
I also have a cheap 405nm in an old rayfoss host.

In the past i have built a driver board (LM317?) and harvested a couple of diodes from dvd burners.

I have to say its great to see such a wide range of wavelengths available now at decent prices. Loads of nice looking blues! :D

Welcome back Ice-Noise, as already mentioned, you've picked a good time to get back into the hobby! :)
There are a lot more wavelengths, and much higher output powers available now.

Have fun, stay safe, and enjoy your stay.

Edit: It looks like you've been a member since 2009, you could probably contact Avery by PM if you want to keep your old name.

Welcome back to the LPF. Yes, we do have many more diodes available to us now. I hope you can find some to build with that will be enjoyable for you.
