    Default Aixiz 405 lens test with 445

    i just got some aixiz 405 glass lens.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    i am currently running my 445 with a standard aixiz plastic lens im getting 520mw -



    next i put the 405 lens in and again 520mw -



    so to top this thread off, although theres no power increase with the 405 glass lens the beam is slightly better.

    It's weird that you get no increase, although the coatings on the Aixiz glass 405 lenses do seem to be a little inconsistent. I get 15% more power from the older 405nm Aixiz half-threaded lenses vs. acrylic, and I get the same increase using o-like's half-threaded 405nm lenses. I have one of the new full-threaded 405nm lenses from Aixiz, but I used it for a few seconds, saw that the beam was crap and stopped using it. I've since purchased all my 405nm glass lens assemblies from o-like.com.

    What distance from the source are your measurements taken?
