  • Nice little module

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Seems well built, and very bright for is stated 5mw output, which suggests it may be doing even more.

    - Small, and I mean quite small. it is a lot smaller than I had expected it to be.

    - No power fluctuations.

    - Adjustable focus.

    - Reasonable price.

    Cons:

    - Could be a little cheaper.

    - Was backordered for quite some time.

    - Easy to kill the diode if you barely go over 5V input (Seems like 4V would be a better rating.

    OtherThoughts:

    - Would be nice if it still worked thru the spring terminal on the back.

    - Maybe also with the switch still included, but not a big worry as they are easy enough to find and solder in if needed.

    Bottomline:

    Great module, producing more power than it's rated for, and for a reasonable price. Good for little projects that require a small, bright laser :)
