  • Cheap and powerful

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    *Very powerful, can easily see the beam indoors *Current draw is ~400mA from 5V USB, ~260mA from 4.5V 3x AA batteries. *Much quicker to burn stuff when powered by USB.

    Cons:

    *Wires come off easily, but soldering them back on and adding a little bit of glue fixes that. *Transistor on the PCB gets hot quickly, trying to operate it using the button is going to be painful after a while, bypass the button and add an external switch.

    OtherThoughts:

    Awesome step up from the usual laser pointer, but be extremely careful where you point it!

    Bottomline:

    It works.
