Output power 1000mw, 10000mw? 12000mw? Which one is it? Mine is only 20mw....but the color is different. I don't know if that matters or not....Greg?

my guess is it has to do with the beam dimension with wider beam being lower energy and focused being the highest??


it does show a wide range on the beam dimension (whatever that is, I'm assuming the width of the beam)

Dary's tank!

It's missing the last output power statement. If there is no control to ramp the laser output up or down, then it is the power delivered depending on the beam dispersion. Highest power is when the beam is focused. 12000mw = 12 watts is crazy powerful. I think they mistyped a few zeros. But who knows? I have one just like it coming and I don't think it's more than 20mw.

The color is close enough, blue to violet is the most effective killing color.

You might be right on there .... It will easily burn a hole thru a piece of paper a couple of feet away when the beam is focused down to its smallest point .

And that's white reflective paper. Strong laser.

It's about absorption dude. How much light at a certain frequency do you absorb or reflect back. A weak green laser might pop a red balloon, but not a green one. At these wattages it doesn't mean much, it's annihilating anything it hits and stays on for awhile. Blue just penetrates water best. PAR 1 billion

Dary, if you want to feel like Luke Skywalker, lay open a black trash bag and hang it like a screen. Put your safety glasses on and have a blast. Nobody unprotected in the room.
