Well mine came today..and went...
My regular USPS carrier is on vacation and the fill in idiot didn't read the note I left taped to my mailbox to deliver it to my apartment leasing office and get them to sign for it!
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr! I'm so pissed!
:mad:
I left specific instructions, even had the HK tracking number on the note! My regular carrier always leaves registered mail for me and the girls in the office sign for it!
I left the carrier another note tonight! I'm sure they'll slam it, drop it and kick my package around so if it works I'll be lucky!
I'm leaving town on Thursday so if they don't re-deliver tomorrow I'm screwed till Monday next week!
I so much wanted to take it with me to play...
Oh well...rant over.

There is something weird going on here. These lasers have a shorter wavelength than i imagined they would. I am not suggesting 635nm but maybe 645. I have a 250mW red laser here and I am comparing the beam visibily to that of my red 160mW DX laser. The DX laser beam is noticeably brighter beam!!! I will try to capture images of this. Can anyone here measure wavelength?

Might it be that the beam (if focused) is a lot more dense and therefore more visible? I know that with my Pulsar's 4mm fat beam, it's practically invisible unless I reduce the beam diameter with lenses like I do here: Video Hopefully someone will be able to measure the wavelength and give us a definite answer, because I've noticed this too. I just thought it was the extra power doing it, but you may be right.

Mine came today, my wife suppose to be at work but she was at home when it arrived, GOOD thing is that she signed for it and is at my house waiting for me, BAD thing is that she didn't know I ordered this and gave a little speach :eek:.

Still 4 hours until I get home to play with it. The rechargable batteries didn't arrived so I will test it with my adjustable DC power supply. I can control the mAh from 10mAh to 3000mAh and 1-18v DC :D

LOL ;D I know that speech well... Nothing a few :-*s won't patch up.

The unit I have tested 200+mW using 2 rCR2s with the following specs: 800mAh / 3.47v so you could use that as a baseline.

Cheers, CC

I was thinking about setting my powersupply to 6v @ 800mAh and go up to 7v @800mAh (rCR2 = 3.47v x 2 = 6.94v total) I haven't burn a laser diode with this power supply, is very steady.

The cap is removable  from the lens,  if you invert the lens you will get a straight beam just like any other laser, but it makes a bigger dot than normal lasers.
