Hey guys, first off im new to these forums but have been looking at them for a while and finally made an account :beer:

I broke my 400mw 405nm laser from olike by putting in the battery the wrong way :yabbem:

Im looking to buy a new one with some more power here is the one i thought of
PL 445nm 500-2000mW

I am looking at the 750mw one. Also i have never seen a 445nm in real life but i read some people say it looks like a 405nm one. Just wondering if that's true or not. thanks for all the help cheers:beer:

445nm is blue, where 405nm is very violet. 405nm is also at the edge of human vision, so 445nm will appear much brighter.

Welcome to the forum! And if you haven't already, get a pair of safety glasses.

There is a huge difference between the two, its like comparing apples to oranges, and yes that company has a good reputation.

445 is more an indigo/royal blue colour than 405 which is very violet (or grey in some circumstances).
