Copy cats! For these multimode diodes, I’m surprised everyone is still using those small 6.3 mm adpheric lenses because the divergence is so bad with those you can’t put a spot on a cloud base, 2.5 mRad and above are too wide after a few hundred feet, needs to be no greater than 1.5 mRad for a 3,000 to 5,000 ft cloud base, but much better at 1.2, might seem like not much difference, but it is. I suppose it isn’t a big deal if all you want it for is close in, lots of people don’t care about divergence, they just want to see a pretty beam coming out the end, or burn. To each their own.
I hope the next laser evolution will be lasers combining high power with low divergence (= or < 1.2mrd and beam shaping optics.Nothing to my Optobeast, but if you like JL PLE-Pro host (and maybe cannot afford original) and/or wish to have cheapo laser, why not? Still the beamspecs are not really what I would go for - anyway nice "flashlight".
