Best wishes with your purchase. Looking forward to reading your review. With beam shots!
If Slowburn is talking about the rechargable AAA's at 1.2V's that should be an issue and wondering if it would even work at 2.4V total..?I'm sorry if you felt slighted, but it does look amazingly like the cheap Chinese pens. That doesn't mean they are of the same quality, but anyone here can tell you they look identical. If you are using rechargeable AAA size batteries, make sure they aren't the Li-ion ones or you will burn your laser out. They need to be 1.5 VDC, not 3.6 or 4.2 VDC.
Thanks.Best wishes with your purchase. Looking forward to reading your review. With beam shots!
Peter, I would gladly take a look at your laser, but as you said, the distance would make it a gamble. What is it doing that concerns you? Is it dead? Or, some other problem. You are correct that the duty cycle for these should be no longer than 60 seconds on, and at least that amount of time off. Hope all is well with you. :yh:
Optotronics has a solid rep, and I'm looking forward to test their product.Opto is certainly quality, I'm eager to see your report. That is a lot of power in a pen form, I once had a 100 mw China pen, my first laser but liked watching the beam too much and overheated running too long, RIP.
oh no there's nothing wrong "knock on wood" but thanks bud.
It's for just if your curious to what these Opto pens are about.
