That’s a cool video and I like especially the beam of the Polaris when they pointing it outside in to the dark. Much stronger even it states lower wattage. Amazing
If you want a high output blue laser----have a look at JetLasers PL-E Pro 445nm. 445nm PL-E Pro 3.5W, 4W, 4.5W and 5W Lasers, PL-E Pro 445nm blue Laser. If you don't need that much power they make lower output versions also and many other lasers. You can't go wrong with JetLasers.Ok you almost convinced me now but is there some tests out there that make a 1.3 watt resulting in a better beam and more powerfull, read better starter for my campfire and pointing further in to the stars than a WL 2 watt laser?
I am really interested as I would prefere to have the best beam available but also most powerfull so my wife who is an artist can paint on wood. So also a very strong beam at near distance.
We are living on top of a NZ mountain and really like something serious.
Try this one out
Jetlasers is very good about being on spec, and overspec. If you go for one of the higher wattage lasers they do use a diode that even with the lenses they use ends up producing a very fat beam. Visually the difference between a 3.5W and a 5W will be negligible... you would be able to tell side by side, but aside from that there is no point for going to a worse beam.Did anyone of you see a test of these lasers where you can see the real power they deliver or better did anyone buy from jetlaser and tested these values. 5W seems extraordinary
I was on the power trip when I first started. Soon as I finish the 10+W I'm working on, I'm switching gears. The lower watt lasers are actually more useful to me. I feel it's just part of growing in this hobby and finding what really works best for your needs.I know it's hard to accept, but really there is little point in having a more powerful laser than bragging rights... and most people don't care about that at all. Even 1W is more than enough to do whatever you want, light a match, pop a balloon, melt plastic, ect,.
At 4W you will definitely be able to burn wood. How long depends on how well the laser is heatsinked, and ambient temperature more than anything. My scarred desk is ample proof of thisInfinitusEquitas I agree quite often less is more. But from an example at Jetlaser LIGHT MATCH 10M AWAY WITH 4W BLUE LASER AT 445NM, JETLASERS PL-E PRO series on Vimeo I have seen they have an 4W+ including 10x expander that lets light a match @ 10 m distance. This seems to me very powerful compared to the regular versions that ignite a match on short distance (+/- 50 cm or less)
Do I understand right that with the 4W you also can do some wood burning/painting on a short distance and also text writing and paint freehand artwork on several materials.
And is focusable better than fixed focus?
400mW mode does that mean that you can switch from 2.2W to 400mW mode so you get a straighter/slimmer and rounder beam over de whole length with one and the same handheld laser?
It would be awesome when something like that is doable with a 4+ or higher handheld laser that you can also switch into a lower 400mW modus to get also the perfect star or tree pointing beam.
I love apparatuses that inhibited more than one option to avoid that I am ending up with a whole bunch of different lasers. That’s why I like the expander as a ad on and something like the PhosForce that turns your laser in to a super strong torch.
One laser that tics all boxes would be the way to go for me.
