Welcome, and hello to LPF
Check out the FAQ section when you get a chance.
If you have questions, try the search button first. If you still need help, don't be afraid to ask.
LPF is a great forum to be apart of:wave:

I always read the FAQ and use the search button. It's my first job after logging in in a new forum. The forum is great i learnt a lot of things here about laser pointers. :thanks:

Варна варнаа, от там идвам азз във България това е най-хубавата чааст :D
I'm from Stara Zagora, wanna ask you are you happy with your DX 200mW, I mean is it worth the money, what is the build quality, output power, and at last what voltage are your batteries?

To others : excuse me for the bulgarian lang, its just a text from one song =D

Definitely worth it! Build quality is pretty decent. The only flaw is the threading on the focusing lens but it's easily fixed using some PTFE (Teflon) tape. The lens in mine unit is 3-element glass one. Power is good but I can't measure it (no power meter). I'm using 3V CR2 batteries (from DX). With some of these lasers you can use 3,6V batteries for more power. For the rest, you can increase the current using the potentiometer. This thread explains how to determine whether or not you have a battery-dependent laser.

So Hallucynogenyc wrote that his laser is not gettin the "booost" after using th 3.6V, because of the circuit its a new model, driver or something like that (too complicated for me..) and this is for the lasers from O-Like, I ordered mine from there too, so there is no need to get 3.6 CR2's I think

Check the thread. If your circuit looks like the one I posted then there's no need for 3.6V batteries. In the other hand, if it looks like the old one (someone else posted it in that thread) you might consider it.

Anyway, using the 3.6V batteries gives the laser a boost from 330 to almost 400mA. If you want the same boost with the new circuit just turn the pot while looking at the current on the batteries with a multimeter, it's the way I did it and it works great ;)
