I've noticed there seems to be quite a few active members in California. I have been keeping my eyes open for a LPM to purchase but in the meantime I was wondering if we have anyone fairly close who would let me meter some lasers?

Re: LPM availability in SoCal?

What kind of money are you willing to spend? Sorry, I can't help with the SoCal members.

Re: LPM availability in SoCal?

I'll probably end up with a Hyperion first but if you have something else in mind i'm all ears. I would like something that goes above 2w though.

Re: LPM availability in SoCal?

The problem with that LPM is the resolution. It's only .1 W. I asked the seller a while back if he sold an LPM with resolution of 1mw and he said the components would be too expensive for him to do it.

Idk where at in SoCal that your located but there looks to be one member that's listed.

I would keep an eye out for an Ophir 20c on auction sites as they can be had for ~$200 at times. Otherwise the Hyperion is a great LPM and you really cannot beat that price.


Here's an Ophir 20c, I purchased one from this seller, from the exact same listing and offered him $175 and he took it even though he's asking close to $800. There were a couple burn marks on the sensor itself, but comparing with my other LPMs it doesn't seem to make too much of a difference, if any at all.

Yea, that .1 watt resolution isn't so great when using low power pointers where you want a more accurate reading. In time something will show up on ebay if you can wait, or just buy that Hyperion, that seems to be the very best deal going.

Re: LPM availability in SoCal?

I have a Laserbee LPM I would gladly meter your lasers but if the power is around 7W that would be too much for my meter which has a max rating of 2W. Sorry :(

It's a nubm044 build running on 5A so I very much hope it'll be around 7w!
