You know, it's hard to say, doesn't give much info.

Things to consider:

1. It's from the USA so they probably know what there talking about when they say green.
2. It's one of the larger hosts and there is no wavelength specified so I am concerned that it may really be 445nm.
3. Not many pics.

I will try to contact the seller and find out more.

Looks like it's used, they don't even state the mw!

I sent the seller who is "norma323" the following message:

Hi

I'm from Maryland USA and I'd like to know more about this laser!

First off, how many milliwatt (mw) is it?

Second, what wavelength is it? 532nm or 520nm direct diode?

Does it have any key switch or safety interlock?

Not to be rude :), but are there any negative features that are why you are selling it?

Does it have a safety label and if so, what does it say?


Thanks for your time!

I got that idea because that style host is a certain chinese type usually fitted with an m140.

However I didn't even see those pics so I think your right but still waiting for sellers response.

Is $65 a Good deal for it though? Thanks For asking :)

This laser will be a $65 gamble and will most likely be a typical generic Chinese laser.
You may want to just buy from LPF recommended companies like Jetlasers, Laserbtb and Sci-Fi lasers as they will be of much better quality.

Many hosts can be fitted with an m140.

Greenies need a big host too. They put out a ton of heat(more than 445)

remember that lasers and cheap dont go so well together if you want to enjoy lasers its worth paying a little extra for the better stuff.

The seller responded a week ago saying he didn't know the output, just he doesn't use it anymore and wanted it to go to someone who could use it. He estimates it's 150mw.
Sorry I forgot to post this earlier like I said I would.

If the host is for 532nm then it could be arond 200~450mw in China usually depends on the price range.
