In perfect scotopic conditions 1.4W @ 520nm would be 2225.30 lumens whilst 5W @ 465nm is 5270.00 lumens.
For the record 7W @ 445nm is 4677.89 lumens and 2W @ 532nm is 2655.40 lumens. The problem with this model is most of the time whilst using the lasers, we are not in total darkness and our eyes are not in night vision mode.
If i account for low light conditions instead, the values would change to
2.0W @ 532nm = 2501.83
1.4W @ 520nm = 1845.20
5.0W @ 465nm = 3358.41
7.0W @ 445nm = 2920.04
I would love to own a laserscope, but it is not a viable option for me :cryyy:
It is too big and dangerous to have in my house, and haven't go time to modify it for general use.
As for the brightest handheld, it all depends on the lighting conditions of when you use the laser. A 7W 450nm at least theoretically should be brighter than a 2w 532nm at night, but during indoor lighting conditions they will almost be perceived as the same. Is there anyone that can verify this with their own?
I have to disagree. If we're talking about a beam from a single emitter, 2W of 532nm will be a lot brighter than anything else available. I've seen a 2W labby, and it serous blew everything else I've seen out of the water.
