Thanks for looking. If you (or any other custom-building members) don't have anything to offer, I'm willing to fund a project if you can fit the budget. I'm starting to think if I go DIY myself, I might not have it done in a reasonable amount of time due to my recently hectic schedule. I'd be more than happy to have a DIY laser from one of the awesome forum members such as yourself.I'm actually looking this moment. It's not like I don't have many things that would fit the bill, it's more like what I would be willing to part with. Have to see what I actually have that is a side button too.
Not that I wouldn't love to buy your pen, but I'm really looking for direct-diode 510-525nm if I go green due to temperature issues with DPSS 532nm for my application.Buy my pen!! it's 127 shipped
I hadn't seen that one, but I think I still like laserbtb's a bit more. I'd have to see how much the shipping will cost though.Have you thought of ordering the 50mw 515nm from Sanwu laser shop? It's something like $100. Idk if you'll find a direct diode green cheaper than that, and 445's will be a bit more powerful than what you want. Usually >500mw.
I'm interested. I was kicking myself for missing Alex2893's pens. If you do take photos, I'd like to see a beam shot. Do you think it'd hurt night vision at that power level?Well, it's not that easy to come up with a side button unit. Only thing I have is a class 4 931mW A140 blitz buck leadlight pen that does not have the second hole for an indicator LED. I'm pretty sure I didn't build it but I could be wrong about that. The sticker I have on the side says it was set for 1.4A. There is a bit of wide splash but it's not close in. It has a 3 element lens which will drop the output down from that 931mW but it will still be a class 4. Ill have to measure it too for the 3 element output. Chrome host. Would have to take a few pics of it so you can see what it really looks like if you are interested. That would have to be tomorrow though at this point. Don't need $80 for it either.
Thanks for the offer Razako. I'm really looking for the side button for extra safety and a bit lower price though, so I'll pass. I'd love to buy it though. I might order one from Sanwu sometime soon. I really appreciate your willingness to help me out on this though.I have something that would basically be perfect for your application. It's damn near new though, so you'd need to pay market value.
I have a new sanwu 50mw 515nm challenger series that I've put maybe 10 minutes of use on. It takes 14500 Li-Ion batters and has a stated duty cycle of 90 seconds. Considering the power level it could probably be ran for several minutes though.
Price would be $125 shipped. Covers the $100+$15 shipping I bought it for and my own shipping costs. Roughly on par with what you'd buy it from sanwu for. The benefit is you'd get it within a week and I can confirm it works properly.
No problem. I'm not really desperate to sell it. Just figured I'd put the offer out there in case it would suit your needs.Thanks for the offer Razako.

With the offer I've got, I'll have something to use in the mean time and money left over to order what I need to build one to my liking.
Ill buy it from you Friday when I get paid if you're still selling it?What is your price range and how important is duty cycle? You interested in this little 500-600mw 445 build at all? Asking $75 shipped or $85 with the AW battery.
