Not much difference. Maybe slightly. You should make a welcome post.Hello all. This is Philip. I have been reading these forums for the last few days now. I made this account to ask a question. I am just starting out with my laser hoby and do not know anyone personally who has any knowledge on the matter. Anyways, my delima is: I've decided on a JetLaser for my first powerhouse. Although, I'm torn between the 2W 445nM PL-E pro and the 1.7W 462nM PL-E pro. Here's their respective links:
500mW PL-E Pro 445nm blue Laser
PL-E pro 1w 2w blue laser 462nm, buy 462nm 2w blue laser pointer, portable 445nm 462nm laser, jetlasers pl-e pro 462nm
I am mainly buying this to burn things/pop balloons from across the room and to also point it at the sky. I would like your all's oppinions on weather or not there would be much of a burning power difference between the two. I'd have to say the 462nM looks nicer than the 445nM but am not sure about the .3mw power loss. Please help?
I have one of their pens and love it. Its an 60mW 520nm that meters around 110mW. Very well made and has a tiny key/tail cap but comes with the non keyed cap as well. I would be interested in buying another pen if a GB happened. I would buy more from BTB but their shipping prices are the highest I have seen per laser. They won't combine shipping for multiple laser orders and the PL's and Hl's were close to 60$ per unit, ouch!I still need to pick up that 80mW 405nm pen they have for my collection. Too bad they don't sell the higher output pens anymore. I think they are pretty classy. All of my stuff still works although I can't say I actually turn them on much. Would like someone to sell me a higher output 405nm pen from them but I have no idea if they made that one with more output. Unfortunate they got rid of the 150mW 532nm pens although I have 2. Their new shipping prices are way too high for standard shipping. That's the reason why I haven't bought the 405nm yet. Take a look and see that they tack on an extra charge.
