you should pm maze he has a laser form the same guy with the same rating, he may be tell you if its working right, I do not own a 100mw green so its hard for me to tell, I know my lasers burn, but my first laser was a 1.4 or 1.6w 445nm today is the one year anniversary of me and lasers or handheld ones anyway. I cannot wait to see what I can do in 10 years, before I die I will make a laser cannon, I wont be satisfied till it has kick and draws on the moon:lasergun:
there is somthing wrong with my laser. i know i keep saying this. but this time its confirmed, it could be the batts, i dunno. but a 5mw ebay next to it is the same brightness, and it isnt burning matches that well. can only burn matches ( if im lucky) if i put the match in the "sweet spot" if i make the dot really small, it doesnt even smoke thin plastic. and no chance of popping a baloon. ill replace the batts, and see if theres a difference, if there isnt, then ill take out the diode (its really easy to get to the diode in this host, just unscrew the top cap and diode is revealed in a heatsink) and replace it with a 200mw green or somthing
i know, i asked about this on another thread or this one i think, i could have got a 1w, but most people said get the 100mw so i got this. now i cant get a 1w for a good few months. building up my already collection, going to get a 150mw green, 50mw red etc etc
i aint got a job or anything, im only 14 (yes i know, pls dont say things like your too young for lasers and stuff, i know what im doing) and only get about £5 a week income from saving up bus fares and stuff.
btw, why can i only burn stuff in the sweet spot? do i make the dot the smallest it will go to pop a baloon from about 3feet?
