Your question is little hard to understand. Could you clarify? The video works fine for me.... :-?

Okay - I watched the video, and it looks to me that the laser is trying to warm up - and what you are seeing is the peak power output. Leave it on for a little longer, and see if that makes a difference. Try it at 30-45 seconds, film it, and repost if you can, please....

I've not seen the vid but at a guess it could also be a mode issue.

more between 30 and 40s can burn the laser?

No - Dragon is very cautious when putting "time limits" on the power cycle for their lasers....I would personally reccomend a 60/10 duty cycle....60 seconds on, and 10 seconds off to cool down. If you notice the laser head getting too warm, then reduce the times, but others have run theirs for minutes on end without any issues....

hmmm... very good

More it will be that it is normal to increase the brightness alone with the time?

Almost all lasers will increase and decrease in power and brightness. SOME of that is normal behavior. Most of the time, it would be barely noticable, but if it is constant, and very obvious, then there could be a problems wit hthe laser - possibly a short of some sort, or bad electronics, or maybe even the diode is having issues or some sort. Post a longer video, with longer run times, maybe we can help....

The brightness alone varies in the 3 first seconds, later it is stable.
I found stranger varies strong in the beginning.

More I find that it is all good. Debtor to all for the help. Later I dispatched by post photos and videos.

DL rates their lasers at 10 to 35 Degrees C. With cold weather here, I carry mine in my shirt pocket to keep it warm. I have had no problems with my dragon since I got it a month ago. My other laser pointers also need some warmth to get stable.

Yes - I can definitely tell the difference when my lasers are cold - they can be very dim...the Aries 175 I have (awesome, by the way) works best when you open the aperature, too....just a little note to all to remind you of that fact ! I thought I had broken the darned thing the other day....but was relieved to find out I was just in a hurry, and hadn't opened the aperature to let the light out ! (DOH!)
