(In reference to the envelope I received in the mail on the afternoon of 08-28-06):

Feels like a flaaaaaash-liiiight...feels like a FLAAAA-aaaash-liiiight!!!

Let's try that soon as I opened the envelope, I *knew* it wasn't a flashlight...

This is a small, pre-wired red diode laser module that has a cross generator lens built in. It's ready to connect to any source of 3 volts to 3.2 volts DC that you happen to have handy; whether that's a pair of 1.5 volt AAA or AA cells, a 3 volt lithium CR2 or CR123A cell, or a "wall wart" type AC adapter that you know has an output of 3 to 3.2 volts DC and can deliver at least 40mA.
It comes prepped with power wires, approximately 4.5" (~10cm) in length.

The laser module is ready to go as soon as you receive it.


To use the laser module, just connect it to any source of 3.0 to 3.2 volts DC via the included wires. Red is (+) positive, black is (-) negative.

There is no on/off switch; if you wish to use one you will have to supply and connect it yourself. Connect the switch in series with the laser; hook up one lead to the laser's red wire; connect the other to the power supply (+) positive.

The cross generator lens is adjustable for focus; simply turn the front bezel of the laser module one way or the other until the focus is where you want it. A spring inside helps to keep the lens at the focus you set it at; if this spring were to be removed or become lost, the lens assembly would freewheel quite easily.

Because this device runs from any source of 3 to 3.2 volts DC, this section will contain very little additional information.

Current consumption measures 39.71mA at a Vf of 3.01 volts

Because this is a component designed to be installed in something, and not a flashlight, I will not beat it against the concrete floor of a patio or a steel rod, stomp on it, try to drown it in the crapper, run over it, or bestow upon it other misfortunes that may be bestowed upon flashlights, so this section of its web page will be relatively bare.

This unit projects a sharp, very well-defined cross. This is because it actually uses a lens assembly, not a holographic film found in those pattern projecting laser pointers you often see being sold for under $2.00 in "dollar stores" and on Ebay.

As I mentioned earlier, the cross generator lens is adjustable for focus; simply turn it one way or the other until the focus is where you want it. This allows you to use the cross generator module close to your target or far away from it.

Same as above; newer spectrometer software & settings used.

Spectrographic plot
Same as above; spectrometer's response narrowed to a band between 630nm and 650nm to pinpoint wavelength.

Test unit was purchased on Ebay on 08-14-06, and was received on 08-28-06.

UPDATE: 09-07-06
I have decided to rate this product five full stars and place it in The Trophy Case on this website.

Labelled properly for power & wavelength
Cross is clean with no unwanted speckling or other artifacts
Uses an optic, not a holographic grating for pattern generation

Not waterproof or submersible; but most lasers aren't. Will not affect rating.
