Afaik the NiHM are speced at 1.2V. I don't use them. I do however user 10440 & 14500 cells from time to time. They are 3.6V nominal and ranges between 4.2V - 2.75V. I.e all within trigger and max voltage.
Moonreft: pull the foam piece that isolates the battery spring carefully and see if the driver board is at an angle, if it is, you need to carefully straighten it out and put a small piece of rubber behind the driver board (opposite side that the switch is on) - one of mine didn't have the rubber board support and after pushing the button for a few seconds it moved the driver board enough that the switch stopped working ... PM me if you need pics or ? to guide you.
Well, that aside, here's the skinny: I also ordered P2's and got P1's, but at $12 I'm just fine with that. The lasers came in the typical "New-Wish" boxes/cases with bateries and instructions (as we're all familiar with). As I stated above, the box arrived to me really warm and the "test-fire" of one of these yesterday was a little scary, but seriously the temperature of the laser itself had to be 90f plus so I was hoping that the second test(s) would be better ...
They were! All the lasers were at least 54mW, with one little bruiser throwing out 81mW and only fading to 75mW after about a full minute! The average across the board is just over 61mW, so for $12 each these are an incredible deal in cheap laser pointers!
Beam quality is average for cheap pointers, one laser has an inordinate amount of splash (haven't tried to clean the lens yet, fingers crossed) and the beam on the 81mW one leans just a touch (barely noticeable) towards oval at long distances (50ft+) but the rest are just fine, especially keeping in mind the price, UNDER $12 !!!!
I noticed their stock is running out on different styles, but I'm still going to see if i can order a couple dozen of these while they still have them!
Thanks for the tip BrewCity. Everything is seated nicely, It is indeed a dead laser. If BuyInCoins is willing I will return it and buy the 200mW version for $50. If not then the case looks big enough for a rebuild.
After a 2ed look I do indeed have a P1 not the P3 I ordered.
This is one of those 'you get what you pay for' scenarios. At $12 thats no big deal.
guys, i am curious if you are able to complete a transaction sucessfuly..
I am NOT..
i throw stuff to my shopping card then i click expres checkout, i log in my paypal account and then when i click on

so i have requested their paypal account adress and make a direct payment to then with description of a stuff in a paypal note for seller..
does anyone else have a same problem??
And one more think, as i am browsing through the forum also in this thread i can see XD..
i know what company is DX, but
YEAH! Mine got here! Finally, after more than three weeks I think. I ordered one 50mW green p2 but a p1 came like the rest of you guys. Oh well... It burns stuff and is pretty cool. I had to take the top off and clean the lens because the laser dot looked like crap when it got here but now it looks very good. I pulled the top part off with my teeth so it's all scratched up but I really don't mind. It's great for like 11 bucks. It's much brighter than my Dilda. I'm glad I bought it.
Looks like they will take returns. This is my most recent communication. Update in a week or two. Worst part is they won't reply by email but thats a minor headache.
