Nice little module – Geniune New Wish 5mW Green Laser Module (5V) Reviews

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.
Other:
- 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 :)
