Where would you obtain a 1W 532nm green anyway? Hardly anyone offers them and they are $800 and up for hand held versions --expensive.

Advising people to take a risk with their eyesight/eyes is not advisable or something members on LPF do. LPF is enjoying lasers as a hobby and safety is most important along the laws, rules, and regualtions concerning lasers and thier use.

Any rational person would tell you no you must use good laser goggles and practice safe laser use--employ proper safety practices--is reckless and irresponsible not to. You can do anything you want as long as you and the laser pose no hazard to anyone else---the risk is your eyesight forever and all time if there is an accident. There is no prosthesis for a destroyed retina

There is no such thing as a 1W 532nm green laser for $9---is a Chinese fraudently represented product--a lie to take money from people who do not know any better---really it is theft by deception---maybe at best is 100mW laser--probably less than that.

Look at the prices of real of 700 mW to 800mW lasers in the real and honest world.
See: http://jetlasers.org/pl-e-pro/10-pl-e-pro-532nm-green-lasers.html#/1-finish-black/73-working_temperature_-normal_temperature/52-10x_beam_expander-no/50-battery-no/49-goggles-no/33-power_levels-800mw
See: PL 520nm 532nm 100-1000

PS even for that $9 laser you should have and wear laser goggles to protect your eyes---here is a laser hazard chart: http://www.lasersafetyfacts.com/resources/Laser-hazard-distance-chart.pdf

sumoichiro,

It isn't possible to get 1W's of 532nm for $9, hec the 808nm pump diode used in the DPSS process cost in itself, much more.

You understand that 1W = 1000mW right? You are saying 1W not 1mW right?

$9 lasers are all low quality, mass produced, low output lasers.

Maybe somebody was giving one away a 1W 532nm laser on ebay that cost a lot more for the price of a good battery---is possible but not likely.

There are no and never have been any $9 1W/1000mW, 532nm green lasers produced anywhere in the world or offered in commerce. Use comon sense .

People don't play make believe/play games here unless they are trolls.

Post a picture of $9 1W 532nm green laser and the "100% legit confirmed by many people real laser power meter" whatever that is, together for everyone to see perhaps.

Now you really sound like a troll--what you say can't possibly be true.
You say "he posts the real power in his description there listed at 5mw" - not even that is true ---is says 1mW/one milliWatt not 5mW or 1W/one Watt.

Everyone on LPF knows there has never been a Laser 301 made in the history of mankind that is a 1W 532nm green. That ANY laser 301 could ever be 1W and cost $9 is complete nonsense/misrepresentation jibberish. You can't even buy the crystal to make a 1W 532nm green for $9 if you had or got all the other parts for free. see: Laser crystal YVO4 (applied to >300mW green laser) [OLYV04] - $36.00 : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce

Use common sense --if a USA guy is reselling a cheap Chinese laser on ebay for $9 it cost $1.50 maybe to make in China. You would be lucky if you got a laser 301 532nm that is a low quality mass produced 100 mW laser including IR + green. They are produced by the tens of thousands at very low cost and thousands of people resell them in the $5 to $10 retail price range.

1W = 1000 mW you know that right?? 1mW is 1 milliWatt, 1/1000th of a Watt.

i never said thats the specific one i got... i said thats the guy i usally get them from... and please stop arguing with me because this thread was for glasses and so far i have proved my point to everything you have said and you can also get a 532nm 1.5w+ laser for 80 dollars on ebay gadget jeff tv reviwed it and used to have a link for it in his discription here is the video https://youtu.be/bhRPIdGbWvc all i said was i have had a 9$ one before and you created a problem this is the last my last reply to what is now your invalid agrument i have proved you wrong in every way goodbye and have a nice day bud:)

A $9 532nm, Laser 301, 1W laser does not exist ---never has and never will.

The youtube video is about a 445nm blue laser not a 532nm green which requires a different technology that is much more expensive to make and purchase than the technology required to make a direct diode 445nm blue hand held laser.

That you are capable of being a forum troll--is all you have proven to be, so far.
