hello boy :) i would ask you one think to do... :) it is very important for my Curiosity...can you test the same laser using nimh rechargeable batteries?
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.

Received my order of one p3 50mW.

I got 3 seconds of light before it went. Anyone have any advice on the p3 case types? If it is really dead can I reuse the case it to build a blu ray?

I'll wait for advice before tearing it apart. Shipping back to HK at this point would be a effort in futility.

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.

I ordered mine the 27th of last month and it's still not here. I'm starting to run out of patience. :banghead:

My order was on the 25th and they arrived yesterday - chances are that they're almost to you ....

China Air Post is always best handled by ordering and forgetting about it - makes for a nice surprise when a big box of lasers shows up!

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.

My freaking laser is mode hopping after like three seconds. But I guess you get what you paid for.

My 200mW ordered is drop dead stable in that aspect. Keeping a smooth 110mW continious output over a 60s. And probably further. But it's getting a little bit hot. :)

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.
