250mw 650nm Red Burning Laser Altoids Build V2!

July 9th, 2015

Using Banggood’s “200mw laser module“, A heat sink, a 16340 holder and battery, and a button, I made this. It puts out around 250mw and thanks to the heatsink and doesn’t have to turn off to cool.

The module has a built-in driver so it can be powered straight from the battery.

The case is still able to close fully and still maintain operation.

The back of the device could use a little work. Tightening the bolts scratched up the ink, so I may paint it in the future.

Here’s what it looks like on and firing.
