You can get 2000mw of power + protective goggles + shipping for $594 from http://www.blazelasers.com
Guaranteed OVER 2000mw output.
</shameless self promotion> :p

*cough* 2000mW of pure 532nm goodness *cough*

I wish I could afford half the lasers on blazelasers.com, ever think of carrying some <$200 pen style lasers? You could buy some 200mW greens off of Deal Extreme, put an IR filter in them+heat sink and sell for $200.

Yea but he's going for high quality and serious testing of the units he sells. ::)

Guys I don't know what you're on about with the 2W laser and the 2000mW laser and stuff.... :-/ It was about the Aries 225 and the X10DR.It's 225mW total power no matter how many lenses you put it through(maybe even less because of internal reflections) ::) 2250W/cm[sup]2[/sup] is the beam's energy density in it's waist when focusing the X10DR so that your dot diameter is 0.1mm.It's not 2000mW and not 2000W and not 2000mW/cm[sup]2[/sup] and not a 2W diode(well maybe it is a 2W diode, I haven't checked, but thats not the point here) it's 225mW spreaded across a 0.1mm dot.The energy density of that dot is 2250W/cm[sup]2[/sup](two thousand two hundred and fifty Watts per square centimeter).

Please look at attached image: :p

Hi Folks,

I had the privilege of holding one of these 10X Beam Expanders yesterday and it is indeed a sweet unit. Beautiful powder coated aluminum and excellent quality AR coated lenses make it look like a high-end camera lens. I can now understand the premium price, they are little works of art and of such quality I foresee very low losses from internal reflections.

There are reports on other forums of instant balloon pops at 150' and I don't doubt it one bit. It really maximizes all that you buy a high-powered greenie for. I hope to get one myself one day.

Cheers, CC

I'm not sure what all this means, but 2.5MW/cm^2 (I think that's the equivalent for squared) of 532nm is probably enough to cause some serious damage.

now i get it, but he's talking about cm^2, so if u take just the dot size it would turn up to be "just" 225mW, he's right.

But it's 2.5 Mega Watts of energy per cm, right?
kiloWatts lol :D Mega is 1.000.000 :p

Its 2.5kW per square cm, that means each square centimeter has a total of 2.5kW.But you don't get 1 square cm, you only get 0.1mm[sup]2[/sup], totaling to 250mW.So it's 250mW on that 0.1mm[sup]2[/sup] surface , which means 250mW/0.1mm[sup]2[/sup] which is equal to 2.5kW/1cm[sup]2[/sup], get it? :-/
W/cm[sup]2[/sup] is a unit for measuring energy density (aka power per surface, not total power).Total power stays the same, but energy density increases when the dot gets smaller, and so the laser burns better. :p
