It's my opinion that 700ish is a pretty decent output for 405 as it produces a narrower wavelength. In comparison, an ir laser diode of comparible po may burn well up close but loses energy the more distant the object. Also 405 is well absorbed by most pigments whereas ir is not at the same power. Plus flourescence of phosphorous containing materials is damn cool. Multimode 405 floursces pretty well.

Isn't this a multi mode diode? If so, it won't have the same kind of divergence that the Blue Ray diodes do. It may be better than many high power multi mode laser diodes, but not nearly as good as a single mode diode.

Yes,brd-209 diode is great, but they are also very sensitive, i lost some of this diode quickly,:(:(:(Sweet is about 500-600ma,> 700ma can kill them easy

Hi THP, did you find a higher mA current that is suitable for long life with this diode? For now , I am happy with 520 mA and the lens which came with it. It burns very well at 1-2 feet, Not as well as a single mode at that distance, but pretty well. At 6 inches though, I would say pretty close.
