The phasers are not visibly brighter, Daedal confirmed this.BlueFusion said:the 200mW phazors.
You can get 400mW diodes but theyre ugly multimode things that either have a beam diameter of like 4cm or divergence of like 3mrad.
And the phazors are 650nm whereas sony 16x diodes sit closer to 670nm.
You'd need to further define that. I bet if you were to offer $500k for someone to design you a red single mode diode, powers might go pretty high...who knows, maybe you'd get a 10W single-mode diode that is just too expensive to manufacture/research. Also splits hairs about "commercially available".ngiapy said:Assuming budget is not an issue
;D ;D ;D What a joke. No diode extracted from any DVD burner has specs. of 240mw cw. If this really is putting out 240mw's, it won't last very long. I doubt this even uses a driver. The funny part is if the diode is running directly off of a couple of AA batteries, the maximum output would only be around 160mw's, and it will drop rapidly. Running directly off a pair of nimh batteries the output will be considerably less. I am sure all my assumptions regarding the NitroxLaser are correct. Piece of junk.keltinator said:the laser pointers available at NitroxLasers.com (for under $200) have 240mw laser diodes in them... apparently extracted from DVD burners
Does that phrase make any sense to you? "For $189 you can have ... at a fraction od that cost" WTF?For only $189, you can own your very own Burning Laser Pointer at a fraction of that cost.
