Review by Craig. – Geniune New Wish 5mW Green Laser Module (5V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Excellent laser for the price, I'd guess about 5-10mw in output. Comparable to about 1/4 of my DX 50mw.
Cons:
Don't try and mess with the POT. It's rated for 5V and I only have a 4V supply, so I maxed the pot and blew it under 1 second. It worked fine with 3V, so stick to <5V and don't mod it.
Other:
Would have loved to see the beam at night, but I blew it rather quickly ;) ** my own fault! See pics for the insides as I have stripped it.
Bottomline:
Nice for OEM products, mini laser shows etc. Build your own :) Or mod this into a flashlight (not sure if it will run under 3V).
