Ok so today i purchase the Star Shower, I took it a part ( I Broke It A Part) and adjusted the power when i got it it was 42<mW green / Red 18<mW = After adjusting the TTL Or ( Potentiometer ).The Green is 217+mW /And Red 81+mW you can rotate the TTL or what ever its called potentiometer and make a choice to get more mW on Green or Red - :thinking:

Interesting finds, I would've expected a little bit more power on red, but I guess still reasonable

Out of curiosity, is this one of the projectors that spin or are a static layout of dots?

I missed this thread and it looks like others did also as there we many questions of this product. Well it seems to answer alot of questions. Alien Im guessing you broke it apart as it was made to be tamper proof.lol Over 200mw of potential green and IR.

I think you are confused with TTL and potentiometer or trimmer.

TTL = transistor - transistor logic which refers to a 0V or 5V signal that turns the beam on or off.

A potentiometer (which is a control with a knob) is much like a volume control on your stereo. Turning it adjusts whatever it controls.

A trimmer is basically the same as a pot or potentiometer but does not have a shaft or knob. It usually has a slot or a screwhead for a screwdriver to fit into for adjustment or fine tuning then left alone once set to the proper point.
