Very cheap, but not straight – 2~5mW 650nm Line Laser Module (3V) Reviews

posted by Grrrrrene on 10/10/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Very cheap Relatively bright 3V is easy to achieve with 2 AA batteries
Cons:
Doesn't draw a straight line Needs to be soldered to some battery case, not usable out of the box
Other:
Mine is quite useless because it's simply not straight and usually these lasers are used to align stuff for which you need a straight line.
Bottomline:
Compared to ready to use is is extremely cheap. Ready to use line lasers are between 50 and 500 euros in my country, but this one including a battery case (with a power switch) was ~10 euros.
