Just got this great little blu-ray build, the other day from Mohrenberg.

http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/fs-100mw-blu-ray-lasers-mxdl-43267.html

This thing is tiny, great for slipping in your shirt or pant pocket. This host uses no switch, just twist on and off. You can also just squeeze the top and bottom together. For one handed momentary on and off.

Host feels nice and heavy for it's size. Mostly do the the added weight of Mohrenberg's custom heat sink. Very solid.

Beam is nice and clean, easy to focus.
This is my second 405nm laser. My first one was a pen style phr from RA_pierce. Measured at 156mW

I know this MXDL is putting out less when comparing the two.
I would say close to 110mW
That is just fine by me. Thats why I like this as a inexpensive put in your pocket laser. Should also last longer. Great for playing outside with. Looking at the fluorescence properties of different objects.

This build is using a V4 Flex drive set to 118mA
I would say she is putting out, just a little over 100mW.
It uses a rcr123 Juice battery, included.
Lens is a standard acrylic Axiz lens.
plus a glow clicky cap, for a lens cover.
This also included a custom cedar box.


Mohrenberg is a pleasure to do business with. Honest and quick to answer all my questions.
Service was very quick from time of payment to when it was shipped.

I have already asked Mohrenberg to do a second build with a different host.

Hmm, still waiting on mine. Hopefully I get it soon.
I actually asked Mohrenberg to do this build before he changed his DIY MXDL host kit, to a completed host.

If I recall these were originally being sold as a plain host. It was not until a week or two ago Mohrenberg decided to sell these as completed builds.

Those hosts look awesome. Matt always pushes the bar very high with his kits here. I can't wait for those drivers to come in so I/he/everyone here can see the 8x we have been collaborating on for about two months now. end threadjack

For sure a V5 FlexDrive?

Does that mean that Dr. Lava has stock? Or did you mean V4...

Hey rpaloalto, I almost forgot. Nice review mate! I enjoyed reading it since Mohrenberg will send one of these to me as well. Could you please post more pictures or a video with how the beam looks like? Thanks!
