G'day,

Was talking with Van to get this bad boy sent over to good old Australia, but didnt want it take by customs.

Van sent me a photo of what the host was made up of and i advised him to arrange 2x packages containing all the parts so it wont get taken by Australia Ku$toms.



The parts arrived the other day and was keen to put it together and see the 473nm goodness, but to install the module you have to take the shutter off, doesnt seem hard, but the allen key bolts are soo tiny, had to buy a .89mm allen key from Toolies to remove them!



Any way i installed the module set the lens and powered it up :)


LPM Results:

Duration



Peak Power


She peaked at 117mW :drool: and held >100mW for ~2 minutes.

Pretty happy with the results there.

No smoke


Smoke



Lighting a match :p


The beam is very nice to look at night, its very tight like a DPSS laser sould, the dot is perfectly round TEM00 as far as i can see, although when i ran it unfocused it was mode hopping between TEM01 when cold, but fixes up when its at its operating temperature.


Big thanks to Van (LASEVER) for going to the effort of stripping the laser down into parts, posting 2 packages, then giving me some instructions to put it together!

Thanks for looking!

Fiddy.

It is worth the wait, they actually need to build more units before anything. I almost had mine but EMS decided my package was a better baseball :whistle:
My first one arrived in 4 days if I remember correctly, second took 5. I'm hoping my next unit (doesn't get destroyed in shipping and) has an interesting outcome. May take about a month though.

Nice review. That is a hell of 473nm goodness :drool:
Mine is also in transit. I can't wait to fire it on.

@ZRaffleticket : Are you buying it again ? I thought you sold the laser.

I sold the first one because I wanted $$ for a 589nm, which CNI is rebuilding due to it being far underspec... now i ran into enough to buy a new one, I still like 473nm ;)

Wowsers that looks nice. Someday I'll get a nice 473 handheld but for now I'll have to make due with my labby. Such a great color isn't it?

Can you measure the current at the tailcap ? I got mine today and it measure a whopping 1.8A for one 18650 cell.

I suppose there is a 2Watt C-mount IR diode inside.

Hey Fiddy

Glad to see you've done a good job :san:

I was so worried that you can't complete it.
Because it's a bit difficult to teach you how to do in English,
sorry about my poor English~

Any way, good luck and have fun!:wave:

Van
