    That's interesting, I've never seen this particular model? If it is legit that a very good price for a 50mW laser. Problem is I find on ebay things rated 30/50mW etc are usually about half in actuality. Maybe someone can get one and test it on a meter?

    And then there's THIS idiot:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/60mW-Green-Laser...ayphotohosting

    If anyone feels like reminding him that it's actually illegal, immoral and stupid to point lasers at aircraft, perhaps he'll alter the wording in his ad.

    The words
    "...it is capable of touching low Planes in the sky with ease"
    were of particular interest.

    hah. I like how he rated it at an output of >60 and <55 mW. That IS pretty amazing.

    He has a note on the listing defining the < and > symbols and if you notice and read the listing carefully, all they are promising is a laser with output of less than 50mW...I bet it more like 5 mW....

    Plus -- it runs on *one* CR2? How long can that last?
    Given the typical efficiency of green DPSS crystals, it
    must be pulling 400-500 mW for the IR pump diode.

    He has edited the listing to add those and remove the >60 <50 ratings. Someone must have told him, or he in on these forums.

    I just purchased one of the lasers - for CPF sakes of course.

    I'll check it for visible stability & power output, and I have all those CR2 cells I bought for my blue laser, so keeping it fed will not be a problem.

    Hey Craig,
    Have you gotten the laser yet? I'm really curious as to whether it will stand up to your rigorous testing.

    Hey great to hear, I like how compact it is but am worried that it's operation time might be on the short side with only one battery. Though I guess it can't be as short as the green keychain laser!

    I haven't received the laser yet, but I'll post in this thread the moment I do receive it and begin my evaluation of it immediately after if at all possible.

    I have one of those novop**** laser which also run on 1 cr123 battery and I would say it lasts longer then my 40mW wit 2 lithium batterys.So I wouldnt worry about battery life.=)

    you rock!

    Isn't the novophone 5mW though? As such it would have less current draw then a 50mW laser(unless we have some superjuice crystals in that 50mW!).

    Anyway it actually shouldn't be too bad, considering a cr123A battery has around 1300mah, you should get at least an hour or so out of it.

    The laser just arrived.
    It measures 52.605mW on a laser power meter specifically intended for that purpose.

    I just now measured 54,387µW (54.387mW) of green laser radiation on the same instrument. :

    I just now found that the bezel can be unscrewed & removed; this exposes a brass tube that can also be unscrewed & removed that exposes the PCB with the pot on it!!!



    Check it out...a pot mod that may be possible to perform with no tools other than the screwdriver necessary to turn the pot.
    O, and the laser functioned properly when reassembled!!!

    OMG!!! dude let me know if this pot mod works and let me know the results after the mod.Because if it ends up at least 65-70mW's IM BUYING ONE!!! O and one last thing can you post up a video or something.Like popping a balloon? I wanna see the power.THANKS!!!

    Same seller. What a strange laser. Says it's 40 mw green power.
    This is a signature...

    So no, not yet. But soon. :
