I was just going to get a cheap 3A Mastech for less than $50 plus shipping. But, I found an Atten 5A for $78 w/ free shipping. After seeing how well it's build compared to the Mastech, it was an easy choice.
I can't wait to start using this thing! Now, if I just had an LPM...
I'm just getting back into lasers after a bit of a hiatus. I'm so happy to see these 520nm diodes are easily obtained now! I tried for a long time to get one of these from laser66 but they would never sell me one.
This thread had some good options with long run times, but I don't mind sacrificing battery life in exchange for small size. Right now I'm planning on running one of these with a microboost in a LeadLight host. My first green laser was a LeadLight so I figure my first diode green laser should be the same.
Yeah it's a pen style host. It looks much better than the typical DX/NewWish pen host IMO. I used to see the empty hosts sold on eBay but there aren't any there anymore, I hope they are still sold somewhere. I guess I'll have to search around a bit.
