Well, welcome to the forums... But, you know reader diodes aren't very powerful at all, we mostly only deal with writer diodes, right?

A DVD or UMD reader diode is probably only capable of some 20mW, whereas a diode from a 22x dvd writer is capable of some 300mW, and only costs something like $8.

In retrospect it might have been a good idea to lurk the forums for a few months before tearing apart your PSP for its worthless diode... I mean, I can buy a full completed laser pointer for $1 from my local dollar store that's likely just as powerful as the diodes you're selling... Plus for your diodes we'd need to buy a host, an aixiz module, and a regulated driver, probably costing us $50 on top of what you're charging for something we could by for $1 anywhere that sells cat-toy lasers... Just saying. Probably should have read up on the topic before you tore apart your PSP...

But yeah, welcome to the forums!
